Pentax rifle scope

I want to buy a Pentax SL rifle scope for my tikka t3. I don't have the opportunity to look at one before I buy it, does anybody own a pentax scope ? what do you think about them ?

Pentax rifle scope

Never seen one but if I thought I wanted one, I'd buy it on Pentax's rep alone.

Not a bad scope

My brother had a Pentax Lightseeker. I found it to be very comparable or probably even a little better than Leupold. It's not as good as say a Swarovski or a Zeiss Diavari, but a good scope for the money.

Another scope you might want to look at is the Zeiss Conquest line. They are really good scopes at a similar price to the Pentax scopes.

Camera Land, Inc. usually has great deals on both of these brands (Zeiss and Pentax). Check it out. I had a really good experience there. Their demos are really a bargain.

Hopefully this didn't complicate things more for you !

Pentax rifle scope

I put a Zeiss conquest on my model 70, and I love that scope. I was looking at the pentax because it is compact and light, I'm going to put it on a tikka t3 lite. Now i'm also looking at a Leupold vx3 2.5-8x36. I just need to make up my mind and buy a scope.
