Leupold - VX-III, Vari X III, & VX3 - difference? Are these the same scope or 3 differnt scopes? Looking on Ebay and it's getting confusing because I'm looking to purchase a scope for my dad soon. Thanks.

Coatings on the glass and the VX3 have twin bias spring exerts.

Definitely not "just age".

Definitely three different scopes. Do your homework on this one. I just bought a new VX-3 and IMO it is definitely a big improvement. Just my opinion. But I have had dozens of Leupold scopes. Especialy the erector system as noted above. My new one tracks perfectly. And that is a refreshing change for Leupold(IMO) VX models. Tom.

Would a vari x III used and in nice condition be worth $428?

I just bought a brand new Leupold VX-3 in a 4.5X14X40 with the CDS dial for $500. I would have a hard time paying $400+ for the old style. When for less than $100 more I would get the new model with the dial I want.

The one I bought did not have the AO. Tom.

My initial response is no...compare the price to a VXII that is a more comparable scope. Quite awhile back I traded a Foxpro caller for a "VX-III" scope, you can imagine my reactoin when I got ready to mount it and read VariX III on the scope. cursing

I just bought a VX-3 in a 4.5X14X40 as well for just over $500 at a local small town gun shop. I thought it was a great deal. It was with no CDS though.
