    @gonetropo, you've under-sold this surely; isn't this the very latest VX3-HD with elevation turret, not a mere VX3 or VX3i ?
    For anyone interested, compare the weight of this aiming device with any of the other competitors with this magnification range. They will all be 30mm tubes and weigh 2½ -3 times as much. I think only Leupold has kept the 1" tube and in so doing has cornered the market for really light-weight low magnification scopes.

    I think he’s priced it about right. $499USD on optic zone. Exchange rate $1.43 plus a bit of freight. Someone said duty is on anything over 1k now but not sure about that.

    I think Puffin is not saying overpriced, more like undermarketed - no mention of HD, CDS or zero lock in title, so people don’t realise what’s for sale unless they open and read the thread.
    Would be a great scope for two of my rifles…
