Bookmark and Share

German engineering at an affordable price makes the TERRA 3X riflescope from Zeiss an ideal scope for those looking to maximize performance without breaking the bank.

Providing all of the features Zeiss has come to be known for, the TERRA 3X Riflescope uses MC coated glass with German optical design for crisp imaging in any kind of weather, as well as excellent light gathering capability at dawn and dusk or on overcast days. With high twilight factors, 13 at 4 power and an amazing 22.4 at 12 power, these scopes from Zeiss grab light like nothing else in this price point, making images crystal clear.

Precision crafted turrets give you ¼ MOA adjustments for accuracy and repeatability with 42-inches of adjustment at 100 yards.

Our test model is a 4-12×42 and weighs in at only 14.8 ounces. This makes it one of the lightest premium optics on the market.

The scopes are nitrogen filled to prevent internal fogging and waterproof to 13 feet, so don’t worry about a sudden downpour.

All of this is available in a slim, low profile 1-inch diameter package.

The TERRA 3x is available in 3 configurations, 2-7×32, 3-9×42, and 4-12×42. They are also available in three reticle configurations.  The ZEISS Z-Plex offers standard crosshairs. The TERRA RZ6 and TERRA RZ8 offer ballistic reticles that provide aiming marks out to 600 or 800 yards.

All TERRA 3X scopes are designed, engineered and quality assured by ZEISS as well as backed by the ZEISS U.S. Limited Lifetime Transferable Warranty.  This warranty follows the product for the life of the product regardless of who owns the unit. The quality of this product combined with the price makes a ZEISS TERRA 3X scope within reach and a good choice for every shooter who wants a great optic.

Optics of this quality and performance usually sell for thousands of dollars, but the TERRA 3X is available at your local Sportsman’s Warehouse from $399 to $499, depending upon configuration. Make sure you check them out before your next hunting trip. Trust that once-in-a-lifetime shot to a company known for precision and quality German engineering. Trust Carl Zeiss and the TERRA 3X riflescope for your next trophy.
