Anybody know what accounts for the weight difference between these two lines of S&B scope. For instance:

Zenith short dot is 16oz (24" objective) while Police Marksman is 20oz (20" objective)
Zenith 3-15 is 22oz vs Police Marksman is 30oz

Is one built better than another?

Re: Zeneth vs Police Marksman (weight)

You said it. Marksman is quite a bit more robust than the zenith and a tactical scope as where the zenith is built more for hunting. Plus, PMII are 34mm tubes where the zenith has a 30mm tube, usually.
