Re: scope differences
I was kinda curios myself...so I just called and talked to a technician.
He said the differences were:
VX-III = Single Spring on the Erector Assembly
Standard Target Knobs
Index Match Lens System (he said better in low light then MK4)
ElectraForm Reticle (like wire but stronger, somehow made
by running electricity over it-those are my
words not his exactly.)
More MOA in adjustments.
MK4 = Dual Spring on the Erector Assembly (more robust)
Tactical knobs, M1-M2-M3, Except for the 4.5-14X40
Multicoat 4 Lenses (or something like that, trying to read
my own writing?!) Thy are supposed to be
more scratch resistant.
Etched Glass Reticle, More robust then wire.
When I asked if the MK4 was just a beefed up VX-III, the answer was "Yes." He asked what rifle I would put one on and I told him a large cased .338. He said that the VX-III would be fine and unless I was gonna abuse it he didn't see the need in forking out the few hundred extra for the MK4.
