    Leupold VX5-HD 3x15-44 CDS-ZL2

    Have owned this scope for about 10 months. First hunt I went on she took a knock and lost the CDS dial so had it sent back to Leupold just to ensure nothing was wrong and they did a full inspection and service including a full reseal and replaced all of the turrets. Gotta love Leupold customer service. Still has the custom CDS voucher. I've had it to the range about 4 times since back but have now decided to sell the rifle that she is on. Have another one on my 7 rem mag. Brilliant scopes. Building a lighter and shorter rifle so no real need for the dial up ability of a 30mm tube anymore.

    Ideally trade this + cash for a VX3i in the 4-14 range or something similar. Love Leupold and their warranty service so prefer to stick there if I can. Would be open to a swaro or zeiss as well. Overall looking for something that is light weight with a reasonable zoom.

    The lenses are 10/10 and happy to supply the Leupold inspection papers. Body does have minor ring marks but that's about it.

    See these are still $1699 @ H&F if you can find them. Cash price is $1450 if no trade available.

    They are quality. All stainless with good knurling. Glass bead finish to match the receiver.

    I have a kahles kx 3-9 42 with 4D reticle I am not using. Great light weight option with a fine reticle and great glass. Good for my old 308 was shooting reds out to 450 with that setup
