While one of my favorite scopes is Leupold's VX 3,3.5-10x40mm, this 4.5-14X40mm model may surpass it only because of the additional power factor. It's easy to overscope one's rifle, meaning that too much magnification can be a detriment depending upon one's intended use and shooting style. In this case, I can use the lower settings for general target shooting and then crank it up for benchrest applications, making it extremely versatile. This scope is a tremendous value for the money because it performs every bit as well, if not better, than many European models costing a lot more. The optics are crystal-clear, the windage and elevation controls are strong, reliable and robust, the scope is as tough as a Delta Force operator, is American made and comes with Leupold's iron-clad lifetime warranty. You can't go wrong with any VX 3 scope.
Pros: Extreme quality and optical clarity, tremendous value for the money, unsurpassed strength and durability, unequaled accuracy and reliability
Cons: Absolutely none
