    Posted: October/29/2014 at 13:02
So I am needing to top off a Winchester 70 super grade with a gloss scope to complete the look I want. I am pretty much stuck to leupold for this project (unless I could find a 3-9x40 burris sig. series on the auction site).
 
Anyways I am looking at 3 options - New VX1 or VX2 3-9X40 OR a used deal on a Vari xIII 2.5-8x. The latter can be found at a decent price compared to the newer VX3. Is the older outdated Vari X series any better than the new VX1 OR 2's? Suggestions? Comments?

The VX-2 will be superior to the older VX-III. To me the VX-III had poor contrast and the glass wasn't very sharp. The change Leupold made into the VX-2 & 3 line was a huge increase in glass quality.

Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

Sightron used to put out a gloss Big Sky in 3-9 X 42. It was rather good... I just sold one recently. There may be a few around on Fleabay or similar sites.

Yep....the new Leupolds are superior to the oldies.   Leupolds look so fabulous.

A Win. Super grade deserves more than that. Go European!

Modern Production Super Grade....
 
If I could swing the funds I was thinking about an older Zeiss 3-9x36 in gloss.
