    Leupold Vx6 2-12x42

    I have a friend who is going to the states, so Im thinking about getting him to bring me home a Leupold vx6 2-12x42i scope. Anyone got one? I dont know if the x42 objective will me good for low light? I have never looked at a Leupold so dont know anything about sharpness, clarity and so on.

    30mm tube, illumination and #4 reticle sounds good, when you dont wanna spend the money for a 2-12x50z6iSwaro.

    Thanks.

    very good scopes
    I have had a VX1 VX2 and VX3
    at US money they are a no-brainer
    The glass is clear, the reticules are great, build quality is very good

    the eye relief on high mag variables can be fussy and is not everyones cup of tea but you quickly get used to it.

    would have loved an illuminated one

    They are not as good in low light as european scopes to the same mag/spec, fact.

    ​good value though.

    but they are a 3rd of the price....
    anyone worrying about light transmission wouldn't be buying a high mag variable in x42 objective though

    I'd hardly call 12x high mag!

    ​Thats probably why you dont get much!

    read the op, question was about 12x scope, i simply stated european of similar spec is better in low light, which is a fact.

    a wee zeiss diatal 4x32 is more than anyone needs for up to 200yds and stalking up to 1hr after sunset.

    rather have that then a cheaper x56 any day.
