    VX 3 4.5-14x40mm

    Evening all,
    Unsure if I'm posting in the right place, but I am looking at a rail for my HK SL8, and the one I've managed to find has the Leupold vx 3 4.5-40x40mm Boone and Crockett reticle with it. The owner isn't willing to sell them separately and I'm not really wanting to spend an excessive amount and would want to flick the scope off.
    Any idea on how much I should offer, bearing in mind I can get a rail for about $200 from Germany?
    Any help is appreciated. Photos attached below
    Matt

    @Hansy The scope is the older model now, you see them selling at $450 ish in good condition. maybe even cheaper. Good scope though

    Thanks @bigbear I told him the most I can do at the moment is $700 for scope and rail and isn't willing to seperate the 2. He seems to think it's worth more. Price for current model is around $1100.

    $700 upwards for the scope.
    Plenty have sold on here for more.

    I sold the exact same scope for $550 two years ago. As was said it's the older model.

    Old scope mate I think bigbear is right price wise depending on condition. If he wants to be a dreamer just buy the rail from Germany and save yourself the hassle.

    If I understand correctly...
    the current model is the VX3i,
    the previous model was the VX3,
    the VX-III, as this scope is, was even earlier.

    Buy the rail from Germany I think is the best bet, then you don't have to spend more money to buy this one with a scope you don't really want
