Ah right . this one i have to try is marked up Vari X 111 .but it is obviously a later scope . it is not clearer than my old 20+50 BUT it seems a bit brighter ? i wonder if they improved the lens coatings on em . it has a MK4 top turret but a hunting type side turret .??? HOLLY

Yes i know that the shooters with the VX3s really rate em . but also the leupold custom shop wil mix and match bits nowadays . like when they used to put the benchrest lense in the old MK4s . this has the MK4 turret . but does not have the safe door closing clunk of a real MK 4 ??? HOLLY

have a VX3 20/50 with standard turrets
and s VX3 18/40 with the M1 turrets
the standard turrets feel nicer to use than M1 as they seem to have a bit of drag probably due to the weather sealing om them

Yes this is what i think MR P . some you win and some you lose . i had sold my 20+50 . cos i had no rifle to put it on . the Comp X is on my Anscutz 2020 . but i am buying a 2002 off kilty and had no scope to put on it . this may be the answer ??? HOLLY PS will give it a run out saturday .
