The word 'budget' can only be used to describe the price - the MINOX ZX5i 2-10x50 riflescope reviewed

Simple but reliable optics with assured performance and a moderate price tag often get overlooked in reviews, but one scope I have come to rely on recently currently sits on my .22 rimfire rifle for general pest control duties. The MINOX ZX5i 2-10x50 is well suited to this gun, with a wide field of view accessible at short distances on 2x magnification and 10x available when wound up for longer, more preciese shots. I have tested this scope in both the available reticles and far prefer the #4 design shown here as it remains far more visible in the infinite varitey of light condition in which the .22 rimfire must perform.

The MINOX ZX5 5–25x56 scored nicely in 14-scope test review

The precise red illumination helps reticle visibility, and the German glass is bright and clear. We loved the lustrous black finish of the 30mm tube and its mounting dimensions.

MINOX ZP5 5-25x56 tested in Shooting Sports magazine

2016 has been a ground-breaking year so far and started with me going Metric. For some time I have used a variety of units on a number of scopes but whereas it didn't bother me too much when hunting, my high magnification and precision optics were always M.O.A., no Miliradian. With new metric rangefinders and 1st focal plane delivered into my life, the day has come and I am now an mRad dialler, with 1cm@100m clicks on ALL my scopes and this was the last big decision.

I have shot this MINOX scope type for over 18 months now on several guns, my own personal unit going ont a custom Remington in 260.

American Hunter Magazines tests the Minox ZA3 3x-9x-40mm

The German-designed but American-made Minox ZA3 is powerful, rugged and affordable.

Half a century ago it was common to buy optics made entirely under one roof, but that’s rare in these days of specialization. Grinding lenses is very different than multi-coating lenses, and both are very different than making scope tubes or binocular bodies. So a common manufacturing strategy is to engineer optics in-house, then have the parts made to the company’s specifications in various factories. The parts are then shipped to an assembly plant, its location often depending not just on the price of labor but import duties and shipping costs.
