For sale: Leupold VX-III 3.5-10x50 Rifle Scope, Matte Black, Model# 57160
I purchased this scope new in the summer of 2008. I mounted it on a 300 Wby for a round count of about 25 shots. I removed it,
to send to the Leupold custom shop to have M1 target knobs installed. It took a fall from about 24Ē onto a Linoleum floor, the
objective bell took a very small ding on it's outer edge of approx 1/8" deep by about 1/4" wide, with no damage to the any of the lenses
or internal mechanisms.
I sent it in to Leupold for repair; Leupold repaired the ding on the objective bell, and sent it back with a clean bill of health.
While it was in the shop, I asked that they install M1 target knobs, and set the parallax focus for 300 yds.
I remounted it, and it performed flawlessly. The only reason Iím selling, is I purchased a Mark 4, and have decided I want the same
reticle type and Mark 4s on all my rifles.
The only imperfection I know of, and can find on the entire scope is a small nick near the zoom ring on the tube itself. I tried to
capture it the best I could in one of the pictures below.
This is a financially dumb thing for me to sell, but Iíve got a few builds in the works that need funding.
This model is discontinued, so for info, hereís one of the better links I found for the detailed specifications.
