    Default Zeiss Conquest 2.5-8x32?

    I have a couple Zeiss Conquest 2.5-8x32 scopes and I am hoping to get an adjustable hunting turret installed on one of them. I have been talking with Kenton Ind about getting this work done and it looks promising. They asked me to take a look at the factory elevation dial and see if it has 2 holes in it. Unfortunately I am about 6,000 miles from my gun safe at the moment and can't pull one of my scopes out to take a look. Hopefully someone here has one that they can take a peek at and let me know. I picture would be even better!

    Thanks!

    I have a couple of 3-9x40's at home. If you can wait for the weekend I'll take a picture.

    LuJon,

    When the dial caps are removed there are two holes in the top of the dial knobs. Should be the same with your 2.5-8x32.

    Default Zeiss Conquest 2.5-8x32?

    Thanks AK W! I also have a 3-9x40 so worst case I can use it. $200 for the retrofit sure beats $600+ for a new scope. Word from Kenton is that two different dials/turrets were used on the conquest line and only one works (the one like yours). Hopefully the 2.5-8x32 is the same. I will write a review when I get the work done and have a chance to test it all out next summer.

    I just picked up a Zeiss 2.5-8X32 on another forum..got a real steal on it.

    When I receive it I'll look it ever and report back per your question.

    Just saw this Lujon,...how are these, not perfect focus, but looks like what you need, right?
    Let me know if you want better pics

    Thanks Kodiakrain! That looks to be the turrets that will work according to the info I have! It will be fun to work up loads for my 280AI this summer and get a set of turrets set up for it!

    Ha,...It has been a Killer Scope for me,...I love that range too

    am a BIG Zeiss fan now,...that one was already mounted on a Sako 85,...I found, already set-up, in Kodiak,
    with 15 rounds break-in history,...for a fantastic deal
    (a bonafide Gun Nut, who decided he wanted to do a custom build with the money,....)

    Was mostly interested in the Sako part of the deal,...but that is one NICE scope
    as they say, "the Optics on top, are about 40% of the Killing Ability of the set-up,"...I Believe That

    It helps to be "Right" handed tho,...

    here's my Favorite Kill with it so far,...others were longer range,...
    but this was such a Blast watching this ole boy in the crosshairs,....and Slam to the Ground after the first round
