Saw them at the SCI show last week. Nice scope. It's a Leupold. No parallax adjustment which, I believe, makes it unsuitable for long range work unless your gun handling and sight picture skills are exceptional. I preferred the new Zeiss 5-25, but it also lacks parallax adjustment...

According to SWFA's website the 3-18' s have a side focus.

Mark 6:
Mark 6 3-18x44mm (34mm) Leupold


VX-6:
VX-6 Riflescopes Leupold


Two different scopes fellas, the Mark 6 is the new tactical entry which does have a parallax adjustment knob.

The VX-6 is a hunting scope & does not have a parallax knob & can not be purchased in 18x magnification.
