    Grouse little scope - VX3i 2.5 - 8 x 36

    Leupy VX3i 2.5 - 8 x 36 plex reticle & Leupy flip lids.

    Came off a rifle I swapped with Brads ( this thing probably owes me nearly 2k ) In excellent condition apart from small rub mark by the serial number as per last photo. Really nice little scope with really nice glass. $660 posted

    I swapped a flash Harry 10k plus target rifle for a Remington bush gun, Duncan can be very persuasive hence why I call him "Te Godfather"

    They are a nice compact(ish) scope, good price.
    No I don't want a spare

    I'm looking forward to a review of your BLR in that magazine please. An underrated and not well enough known rifle.

    Touched by Alonzo and Brads

    I touched it as well, but that probably devalued it, haha

    Sounds like a fancy way of saying "its a 7.62x39"

    something looks a bit off about that target
