Not qualified to intelligently comment since it's been years since I bought a new Leupold. But I spent about an hour and a half cruising used scopes on ebay on Sunday, it's absolutely shocking the prices asked and gotten on the older Leupolds you mentioned. It seems there is a hell of a lot of demand for the old models. Now I don't have a clue whether guys actually prefer the older models from a performance standpoint...or if it has to do with the prices of the newer offerings. Just my own opinion, but I was always satisfied with a variable that only went up 3X, I didn't really feel I needed a scope to go 4X or 5X, especially since the price tag went way up too, for a feature I really didn't need. But then I am one of those old duffers that is perfectly happy with a 4X or 6X fixed power.


guilty of white privilege : for 55 years I had the privilege to get up and go to work...to help feed the folks that wanted to sleep in.

I agree. I have two new (2016) VX-1 scope - a 2-7x33 & 3-9x40. Compared to Vari-X11 & Vari-X111 of twenty years ago there is no comparison. I really noticed it when I shot rifles fitted with my VX-1 2-7x33 and Vari-X11 2-7x33 recently, the newer version leaves the older version for dead in every way.

The NEWEST is the VX-Freedoms and the VX-3i
These are the 1" tube series
The 30mm series is much more money and serious HD glass..
