Re: Leupold VXIII 4.5-14x50 (30mm tube) illuminated

I have three Loopie VX-III 4.5-14x50 LR (non illuminated) and three NF illuminated with 56 Obj Lens. I'm still trying to convince my eyes that the NF are better, they must be, I paid more that double I like all the scopes but on my favorite hunting guns I usually put the loopies.
I could easily come up with the cash for the more expensive euro glass, but I'm so happy with the Loopies I'd rather get another gun from Kirby.

I still like my NF scopes, but the Loppies are awesome scopes for the price. I'm with GG, if you want to spend money, put it in the gun.

I use Leupolds and so far they have not left me wanting, but if someone wanted to give me a Nightforce, S&B, or IOR I would not turn it down!

I have 2 NF's and I have to say they take nothing away from this Leupold. I haven't shot it yet because the rifle it's going on won't be here till next week. Compaing the NF to my Leupold really isn't fair. The NF are designed to be Tactial, this is a hunting scope and the weight savings and compactness of it are worth it alone. To my eyes at dusk I really can't tell a difference between it and the
NF 5.5x22x50NXS. My eyes are very good though, and everybody sees different, but I'm pleased with it greatly.

The equivalent Leupy's to the NXS series are the Mark 4 variables, though similar looking with gold band the VX3 is not as good optically, well my 8.5-25 isnt its about on par with an NXS. The genuine Mark 4 fixed mag are the biz, i want mine back.

I like the illuminated reticle but unfortunately they are illegal to use for hunting in here in Wyoming. I just found that out at the local sporting goods store a couple weeks ago. It may be well worth checking into where you live. lol

highcountry,
Did you see that on the regulations or did someone tell you that? I'm sure nightvision is illegal but I've never heard of an illuminated reticle scope being illegal..
