About This Item

We aim to show you accurate product information. Manufacturers, suppliers and others provide what you see here, and we have not verified it. The excellent optical performance and reliable mechanics perfectly meet the demands of any hunter looking for a quality piece of gear. Equipped with fully multi-coated lenses, one-inch tube and 3x zoom range, the MINOX ZV riflescopes are the ideal solution for use in every situation.

The glass quality in the ZV3 scope is absolutely amazing.  For this price, we were not expecting what we see when we look through this scope.  The clarity is amazing at any magnification between 3x and 9x, and we have to look very hard to see even the slightest hint chromatic aberration, even at the highest magnifcation.  The 4″ eye relief on this scope is a standard that allows this scope to be mounted on large caliber rifles without the fear of being injured by recoil.

As far as construction, this scope is completley waterproof and fogproof and includes a one piece anodized aluminum body.  It feels very solid and isn’t too heavy for a variable power scope – if anything, it’s very light.  The magnification ring and focus adjustment are both smooth and quite tight across the entire range.  The windage and elevation caps seal well against water, and the knobs themselves are labeled in 1/4 increments with adjustments up to 60 MOA.

Our current stock of Minox ZV3 3-9×40 offers some slight aesthetic improvements over the first manufacturing runs.  First, the quick focus ring on the eyepiece is more prominently marked, with clear plus and minus markings, and large 3-9×40 lettering.  The retaining ring on the objective was originally unmarked, but it now clearly says MINOX WETZLAR GERMANY, an indication that while this scope may be of Asian origin, it still inherits design and performance from it’s German-built big brothers.

The optical quality is the biggest surprise on this scope, and if you would have asked for this type of performance at this price, you probably wouldn’t get it.  Minox has really raised the bar.  We did a side by side optical comparison between one of the first round ZV3 3-9×40 and a US-made ZA5, and found it very difficult to pick out any real differences.  Big deal, right?  Actually, yes.  The ZA5 and ZA5 HD scopes contain the same Schott glass used by Zeiss in their Conquest lines, which is indicated by the presence of SCHOTT on the retaining ring of the ZA5 scopes.  Now, to be clear, Minox has not confirmed that the ZV3 contains un-branded Schott glass, but we have a very strong suspicion that this is the case.  It’s understandable that Schott would not want their name on an Asian-manufactured product given their history as a high-end glass supplier.  The takeaway here is that you’re getting Schott-quality glass, for a killer price.
