    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 24” 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 I’m 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 I’ve got a few builds in the works that need funding.

    This model is discontinued, so for info, here’s one of the better links I found for the detailed specifications.

    Leupold Riflescopes > LEUPOLD VX-III 3.5-10x50, Matte Black

    A couple specifications that will be of interest to our forum members:
    -It is a 1" tube
    -I get 55.25 MOA of total elevation knob adjustment from top to bottom
    -I get 38.25 MOA total windage knob adjustment from left to right or right to left.

    The Leupold one piece base and 1” rings can come with the scope for a respectful offer above the scope price listed below.

    For now, only interested in selling. I’ll post what trades I might be interested in if this doesn’t sell.

    It’s posted on a few other forums; I’ll honor the first “I’ll take it" PM or email by date/time.

    Price when new: $630
    M1 Target knobs: $130
    Total new replacement cost: $760

    I'll let this go for $600 shipped to your door.

    I'll give you $500. for the scope. I would like to see you get what you ask for but I don't have that much to spend on a scope. But like I said I'll give you $500.
