    VX6, Vari-x compact

    Gonna move these two on as need to put the money towards a scope for a different rig.
    VX6 3-18x44 is the "old" model ie: no ZL2 turret etc but its been an excellent scope to me and performs great. Reticle is Boone and Crocket and it is illuminated, the scope body is in good condition as are the lenses. If I were to pick on it for something it does have a tiny speck of something inside it but its been there since I got it and nobody actually notices it unless I tell them its there, possibly a speck of grease or something from assembly? $1300 ono

    Next is a Leupold Vari-X Compact. This scope is the same dimensions as a leupold 2-7x33 but its actually a 3-9. Its got a few marks and stuff on the scope body but its a tough no nonsense little scope and the lenses are good. I will take the torch mount off it for sale. $200

    Hey Ryan, I could be keen on your VX 6. Does the illuminated reticle turn on and off based on movement like the 'fire dot' ? Also is the elevation turret exposed or does it have a cap?

    Hey guys both scopes are SPF, but to answer your question rich the illumination turns off when the scope is idle but you need to physically push the button to turn it on and change intensity and it has a CDS MOA exposed dial on elevation
