LEUPOLD VX3 4-14x55mm (fine duplex IR) Vari-X
It has a fine duplex cross with a small central cross that illuminate as per the diagram below except the outer lines are finer. There are no scratches on the glass at either end although I have not been able to get any photos of the lenses with my phone.
Overall condition is what I would describe as 98% - there are one or two very small marks on the edges of areas such as the turret caps, zoom ring, cover for the IR battery – all places where there is a knurled finish with fine sharp edges.
There may be the odd very small mark elsewhere but this is a scope that has been used but certainly not abused – there are no dents or dings in it and I am not going to take any silly offers on it, if it doesn’t make the asking price it goes back in the cupboard as a spare.
It has an adjustable objective to focus from 25 yards out to infinity – unlike the later side focus Leupold ‘scopes with this one you can’t accidentally knock it out of focus without realising when you get the rifle out of the case in the dark in the morning!
It’s been difficult to determine what an appropriate price might be for this scope as whilst it is not a current model it has the benefit, in my opinion, of having the more practical adjustable objective for field. The current 4-5-14x50 LRT IR is £1049.99 at Uttings (http://www.uttings.co.uk/p107181-leupold-vx-3-4-5-14x50-ir-long-range-rifle-scope/#.VO8rII1yaM8) or £1094.99 from Sportsman (http://www.sportsmanguncentre.co.uk/product/174b18e6dc044eb709458033/Leupold+VX-3+4-a-8-f-35-14x50+Long+Range+illuminated/).
Based on a comparison with a new 4.5-14x50 VX-3 LRT IR I am asking £600 for this scope which i think is really a fair price. The same scope sold last year on a different sellers advert for £700 so i think my price is a good deal
I will only send by RMSD with appropriate insurance and will let anyone who is interested know how much this will be.
