Re: VX-3 or MK4 is the glass the same
The old VX-3s only had one erector spring. The new revamped ones have dual springs (like the MK4) the same or better (new coating) glass. A new VX-3 model with adjustable paralax knob and custom shop M1 turrets is a mk4 for a bunch less money.
"Out of range" is a theoretical concept as far as I'm concerned. Send it!
