    Swap: VX3 3.5-10x40 CDS for 4.5-14x40 CDS

    Bit of a long shot, i know.

    I have a VX3 3.5-10 here and would like a 4.5-14, just sold the bush pig and want a little more magnification on the new rifle.
    May consider other options as well, such as a part trade on a z3 4-12x50 etc

    Any interest flick me a PM

    Cheers
    Nick

    If you put it on trademe, remember the golden rule of selling leupold scopes on trademe, starting bid $100 more than a brand new one. Its very similar to the selling tikkas on trademe rule.

    Lol hes not far off anyway. They 799 new at the local shop here, 999 for the 4.14.40. Secondhand and some marks for 700? Trademe take 8 percent, lets talk turkey and i may be interested Nick m.Does it still have the free cds voucher....if not thats another 60US off the price as i like to have the CDS. ps is this the new model ie Vx3i rather than the Vx3?
    Price for the new model is what i quoted as above

    Nah mate this is the Vx3, purchased for $950 i think it was new (could probably find the receipt). It already has a CDS dial on it in moa and also has the voucher for a free dial.

    I just looked into the new model, didn't realise they were so much cheaper. Makes all the older more expensive models worth a whole lot less but hey that's life. Think I may keep it here as a spare.

    Fair enough, yeah, not often do things come down in price but the price of the new Vx 3i arent bad at all. HnF had the old models (VX3)at sharp prices to get rid of them but sold out before got hands on one.
    Honestly,keeping as a spare prob good idea as i doubt its worth even 600 secondhand now when some bartering shopping around you get the improved model prob a little cheaper than 799 new. Was a nice package with one on in Hnf new with a Kimber 7m 08 and the Vx3i 3-10-40 with talley rings for 2499, not bad
