    I have a VXiii (not VX3) 3.5-10 with CDS turrets on both windage and elevation. B&C reticle. In good nick, would you be interested? Thinking of replacing it with a Z3 without turrets (probably a 3-10 with BRX reticle)
    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    VX3 is their latest one, not sure on the differences from the VX111. I cannot honestly say how it tracks/dials, never done any dialing with it other than sight in. Holds zero (but its only on a 6.5x47L so not much of a test) and overall is in mint condition, no marks on glass, a couple minor scuffs on scope body. Comes with scope cover. Only "issue" with it is that when the CDS turrets were fitted the plonkers forgot to engrave the zero marks on the scope body... It owes me $850, so somewhere near that figure would be good...

    The VX3 has the double sprung adjustments like the mark 4 and improved coatings for low light wave lengths
