Bresser Condor 1.5-6x42 Review

The Bresser Condor 1.5-6x42 is an updated version of the popular Konig 1.5-6x42, which was discontinued in late 2013.  It's been a long time coming, but it looks like the wait may have been worth the wait.  

The Condor 1.5-6x42 is a fully waterproof, fogproof, nitrogen purged rifle scope with a 30mm main tube. It's a solid built optic with a one piece aluminum body, and has some noticable improvements over its predecessor.

First of all, the price of the Bresser Condor 1.5-6x42 is only about half of the old model.  It seems that Bresser has managed to do this while not only maintaining quality, but improving it.  Glass quality seems like it's been massively improved, with a notable decrease in chromatic aberration, as well as a huge increase in clarity.  

The illumination is nice, if you're into that sort of thing.  The illuminated center dot is just bright enough to see in light conditions, and not so bright that it will blind you at night.  The biggest improvement here is that the Condor 1.5-6x42 has been upgraded to a digital illumination system, which is controlled by a pair of buttons instead of the commonly found analog knob.  

A common complaint about rifle scopes at this price is turrets that seem imprecise and lacking tactile feedback.  This is not the case.  The turrets on the Bresser Condor 1.5-6x42 are astonishingly precise, and exhibit some excellent audible and tactile feedback.  

If you're looking for an inexpensive 1.5-6x rifle scope with some worthwhile features, we urge you to take a look at the Condor 1.5-6x42.

Mr,

WOW! This is a great scope, and an even better value. I don't write a lot of positive reviews, but I'm very impressed with the scope. I am fussy about my optics, and generally buy only top of the line scopes (such as Nikon Monarch). I wanted a low-magnification by 42 mm or larger, and I found this Bresser Condor in 1.5-6x42. After some research I decided to order one, and am very impressed. Packaging is professional, unit is heavy (it's real), it's rugged. The adjustments are accurate, and graduated at 1/4 MOA, with a counter at every MOA (this is very helpful for sighting in). sight picture is great, optics are clear, and the illuminated dot is near perfect. The brightness of the dot can be adjusted from almost invisible to bright enough for full daylight. My only negative comment is that the battery that was in the scope didn't last long, however, they are shipped with a second battery, which I installed right away. I took it outside after dark with the dot set very dim, and could see well enough to fix on a target. I have every expectation this scope will meet all the needs for the rifle it's mounted on. Before I entered this review, I did a little more research and found that Bresser is a telescope manufacturer, which accounts for the quality of the unit. Overall, a very good scope, and especially for the price!
