Die Grosste Zeiss (The Biggest Zeiss)

By David E. Petzal

In between ogling booth babes at the SHOT Show, you may have noticed me groping a monster Zeiss riflescope whose designation is Victory FL Diavari 6X-24Xx72 T*FL. It’s designed as the ultimate tactical/varmint/predator scope, and incorporates every optical refinement that Zeiss can muster. This Zeiss is big, heavy, and expensive. Its real world price hovers right around $4,000.

To test it, I put it up against the nearest equivalent scopes I had on hand, which consisted of a Zeiss Diavari 6X-24Xx56, two high quality tactical scope with 30mm tubes and 56mm objectives, and, just for s**ts and giggles, the 2.5X-10X Trijicon** that sits on my beanfield rifle. At $800, it was the least expensive scope involved.

I tested the Zeiss by mounting it on a rifle and seeing how it moved  bullets. It did so to perfection; its adjustments are a paragon of Prussian precision. The real test came by sighting each scope on a target, starting at full daylight, and progressing through complete darkness.

Now at this point, you’re hoping I’ll tell you that this $4,000 scope was only a little bit better than the $1,000 tactical scopes, but such was not the case. The truth is that it is in a class by itself, and its only real competition was the other Zeiss. It has a huge field of view, is astonishingly bright, and, most important, is the sharpest scope I’ve ever seen at high power. At 24X, in near darkness, at 100 yards, you can aim at a circle about the diameter of a pencil eraser.

Because the scope’s tube is 34 millimeter, Zeiss supplies you with a set of very good rings to fit this unique size. The rings work with a Picatinny rail, and tighten with a pair of dome-head screws. When you mount your new scope, get them screws tight, because its godless weight puts an awful strain on the mounts. You need a socket wrench, and Loc-Tite is not a bad idea.

I don’t think Zeiss is going to sell a lot of these, because there aren’t that many people with four grand to spend on a scope. But they are going to sell every one they make. There is nothing else like it.

** The Trijicon did astonishingly well, even against much more expensive competition. For $800 it is some scope.

--------

And now a couple of unrelated matters. First: I perceive that by showing a  photo of Nancy Pelosi I have overstepped the limits of good taste. You have my promise that we will not show any more women unless they are at least the equivalent of Ms. Elisha Cuthbert.

Second: this past Sunday I was at a shoot where one of the teams participating was from the United States Military Academy. Meeting West Pointers always makes me think that if we can still produce people like this, there may be some hope after all.

Mr. Petzal,

I'm slowly moving into the world of scopes. I learned to shoot with ironsights and a stint in the USMC did nothing to change that. (This was 15ish years ago and ironsights were still the norm.)

How do you recommend we evaluate scopes? Especially given that most of us will have to purchase a scope before actually getting to mount it on a rifle.

Dave, The scope and Miss Cuthbert are both outstanding. However I'm sticking with Bushnell, Leupold and the gal that has stuck with me the last 36 years and counting. Those are nice to look at though!

To Harold: Pretty high. I had it on a Savage 111 Long Range Hunter with a #2 contour barrel and there were no problems. I think most Picatinny bases will get it up in the air far enough that there won't be a problem.

To MJC: Figure out how much you want to spend, how much power you want, what kind of reticle, and which features, and then go buy something. There are fine scopes selling from $260 (Redfield) to way over $1,000.

Indeed Sir, by profaning these hallowed pages with a picture of San Fran Nan, the antithesis of everything beautiful and dear to the heart of Gun Nuts, you overstepped, nay leaped far beyond, the bounds of good taste. You may therefore attempt to redeem yourself in the eyes of everyone by posting more pictures of Ms. Cuthbert, Ms. Kunis, etc.
Die Grosste Zeiss is not a bad looking item, either, however, I think it is probably more scope than I need for my future purchase of a certain J. Rigby double in .470 NE.

Merely stating what most other folks think or say, the biggest Zeiss is generally more scope than any of us need. No doubt the optics are superior but what a pain to lug up the mountain. I think my horse might even finally complain about this one. Is it worth the price? That depends upon the guy who wants it. Lesser priced scopes function quite well such as NF, Leupold, Swarovski, Leica, Burris, etc. in all hunting situations.
Indeed Elisha is as elegant as ever and always a delight to visualize even without the aid of a big Zeiss. Some of us have to go through life with only a small Zeiss.
Insofar as the cadets, the son of my best friend is in his third year at the Air Force Academy. There is no finer young man in this country than Hal. He is majoring in engineering, is a straight A student, and surperb athlete. His girlfriend is much the same and is a cadet in his class. These young people comprise a portion of the group who will hopefully lead tomorrow's America.

Dave,
Thank you for hastening my recovery from the visual impact of Ms. Pelosi. I feared the worst. As hourglass figures go, both the Zeiss scope and Ms. Cuthbert are a dramatic improvement. I doubt I will ever have room in my budget for the Zeiss Victory, and I know I won't enjoy any more than a photograph of Ms. Cuthbert, but I'd say you've redeemed yourself for your momentary lapse of good taste.
Good shooting,
Ed

I was concerned about retinal damage and surprised that Dave would subject us to that level of risk, fearful that Dave had gone over to the "Dark Side", but I kept my lunch down and kept faith in Dave's elevated taste...and my trust was rewarded. Now, if only we can put this remarkable Zeiss glassware in the same frame as Ms. Cuthbert, we could get some sense of scale, some better perspective on how large those (lenses) really are. The photo of Pelosi is now a blurry, distant memory and the more I study the two photos above, the blurrier Pelosi's photo becomes.
I lived in southern California for 25 years. The changes in the political priorities and business environment were part of what drove me out of the state. I continue to regard Pelosi, Feinstein and similar creatures as anathema to any honest citizen with an interest or involvement with firearms.
