I had a 10X and found it was to much power. I did a match with movers from 50 yds to 250 yds. there was a second stage with target exposed for a curtain amount of time. Same distances. 10 Power was way to much by the time I had sight picture and squeeze target was gone. Field of view was the problem. I changed out to a 6X and it made a huge difference. I have had one on my main match M1A/M14 rifle since 96. I have used it in matches from zero to 1000 yds. It has never let me down but just moved it over to another M1A/M14. I replaced it with the new Leupold 1-8 MK8. But the scope still going strong. Easy to use and tough, I have been dragging my scope through the dirt since 96 and I can only hope the Leupold holds up the same. As stated above if you have a line to a ZF95 for $500 I want one and would love it if you steered me in the direction to getting it. I have a rifle platform that's in need of itI'm looking at 10x 84 and 95 models budget 500 bucks found a couple already. Most people seem to really like them I am just hesitant about buying such an older scope. My photonic 6x (like a ZF) was neat until it tanked, no longer works and can't get parts either. The loopy M3 I have is far from perfect, glass quality is like my PST and it's already broken once. But I know if it tanks again it'll just get fixed again too.
How long have you owned/used it and on what rifles?
here is what I use.I too like the kahles scopes having once had a zf69 on a steyr ssg. I bought a new zf84,10x to mount on my m25. I have not found the rings for this set-up yet. I have not yet located ring inserts to adapt it to 30mm or any other configuration. If anyone has the answers please let me know. I hope you didn't mind this inquiry. Thanks.
It is always nice to get a good review from a satisfied client.I know this is an old thread, but I figured it topical rather than start a new one...I just bought one of the Kahles/Photonic ZF95 scope and Israeli mount rigs from Mayer Antiques and I could not be any happier. What a great piece of Israeli kit, I don't really care about semantics, I am not planning on going into battle with it. The scope is clear as day, the reticle is trick, the mount locks up tight on my rifle, and Mayer Antiques could not have been easier to do business with considering they are half a world away. I placed my order on September 29, 2021 and the scope arrived here in Penn's Woods on October 13th. Bonus round, it came with lens caps!! Here are a few pictures:
