I have numerous Leupold scopes in all flavors and all have the 'golden ring' out front on the objective.... That one don't. So what is it? A Baraska in Leupold clothing???

Do you have a Leupold tactical scope with a golden ring?

Frankly, not sure, I'm not where my rifles are at. Last one I had out, the VX3 LRT High Turrent had the ring out front because someone commented (at the range) about it, said basically....'Gold Ring, expensive scope'.....

I'll have to look and report back.... They may or may not, again not sure...

Of course I buy them all from an authorized (Leupold dealer), in sealed boxes, not Flea-Bay.

I sometimes wonder where Leupold and Stevens sources their intrinsic parts, they are very cagy about internal comtent. I would not doubt that many internals are offshored....
