Re: What's wrong with Leupolds VX-III CDS Scopes
My Burris Signature Select 4-16x44 made in the USA is much more clear than any Leupold VX II I ever looked through. You have to go to a VX III that costs more to get the optical clarity, and then you do not have the 4X zoom range and you will have spent more money as well.
Beretta bought Burris and dropped a lot of the good old models, so I might not buy any more of them as new, but if a used scope is OK then a Burris Signature Select will beat a Leupold that sells at the same price.
Leupold has nothing for the same price that compares to the Burris Timberline scopes. In fact, nobody I know has anything at the same price that matches the Burris Timberline scopes, but they are not a true high end scope, just a lot of bang for the buck and all that some people need. They are aimed at mountain rifle, rimfire, air rifle, lightweight varmint rifle and others needing a small, rugged scope with excellent image quality. Not a good scope for very low light due to the smaller objectives, but they perform better than you would think in low light considering the small objectives. I owned three different models of the Burris Timberline, so I would know, and still own 2 of them. The third was a trade-in for a Signature Select..
