    Gotta love those Conetrol rings and bases! I have had a few sets over the years on various rifles and am convinced they are the greatest rings ever.

    though this was a good deal! Even if you just kept the scope + suppressor and on-sold the rifle

    Been meaning to ask
    Has anyone had an issue with the Vari Power ring seizing up ?
    I have one of these VXII Scopes and I need a stillson wrench to shift the power magnification (I have it left on 3x)
    Gone off these VX Leopold - had 3 or 4 now and I (IMHO) think they are over rated.
    They are a $200-300 scope in my view

    Nope doesn't look like it. Probably a Ken Henderson.

    Yep, I agree with you Sarvo.

    Like your experience, the Vari Power Ring on my VXII has got really stiff. It has happened twice now. The first time I put up with it for a couple of years, cursing everytime I needed to change magnification. On cold autumn days when your fingers are frozen it was a real bitch. One day the scope fogged up so I sent it back to Leupold for repair. They turned it around quick - they sure do have a good warranty service! - and it came back nice and smooth again. Three years later it's as stiff as it ever was. This is the reason I went Swarovski. The only reason I still have this scope is because my son likes it.

    I would agree here as well, particularly with the VX1s that we see. The one thing that justifies it is the Leupold warranty. That is one thing that Leupold has is a better reputation with than most. Other manufacturers have similar warranties , and possibly better service, but the effort Leupold went to early on with this is where I suspect the reputation and value perception comes from.
