  • Leupold

    I sent a vxii 2x7 to leupold it had Stoney point turrets put in it. Leupold gets it and put the original equipment back on. Anyhow they sent it back and a letter came with it stating this scope was made in 1983! Wow I thought that was pretty neat... The letter concluded the scope will give many more yrs of service. I know there other outfits making scopes but I have always been a leupold guy. I will continue to be a leupold guy!

    They make good products, and they stand by their products 100%. I ask no more, and expect no less than that from any Man or any Company.

      Yeah, they're the best alright...I wouldn't have another scope if my life depended upon it...I own two rifle scopes & a pair o' binos...my boys will get them when I'm gone, & hopefully their boy's boys'...

        They are indeed the best out there.

          Leupold makes excellent riflescopes and their customer service is absolutely the best in the business. It is hard to go wrong with Gold Ring products.

            Leupold is indeed the best budget scope maker and likely the best large US optics manufacturer. To call them the best scope maker though is laughable. They do have a great warranty but I know lots of folks that have needed to use it.

              Leupold are very good, no question, but I just bought my first Nightforce, they are better and I'm looking for my next one.

                i have been a leupold fan and enjoy their full product line to include fixed power scopes to huge varibles. never in over 50 years of shooting have i returned one of their products, so the warranty is for other folks. they are a great american company, who this last year also began producing the redfield line.
                in the day, redfield and leupold were the scopes to own. they still are.
                happy trails.

                  I'm not laughing. My VX-III's are the best scopes that I own..."best" meaning most durable & reliable. I own other scopes that I bought a few years back (Swarovski Z-6, Kahles and Zeis), and they clearly (pune intended) do have clearer/sharper optical quality, but IMHO they are not as durable and reliable as my VX-III's. I'm not selling those other scopes, but I'm not buying anymore either because the optical quality of my VX-III's is excellent and good enough for me...and I just keep buying more VX-III's with each new rifle.

                    Best and budget are subjective. I prefer Leupold to Swarovski. Even if they were the same price I would buy the Leupold VX-3 with side focus over the Swarovski in the same mag level.

                    I like the NF that McMillan offers on their TAC 338LM but the MK-4 I put on mine has great glass and 10moa more elevation for $1,000.00 less cash.

                    I really like the Swarovski STM-80 HD but at nearly $3,500.00 for it and a tri-pod and case it's just to far above my pay grade.

                      That's an accurate statement Marshall. Leupolds are, for the most part, above MY pay grade! I only own one and I got it used. It is a nice scope but to me no better than others I own. To my eyes and budget the best deal going are the Redfields. I have yet to read any explanation as to how they are not as good as the Leupolds for less than half the money.

                        Outside of rifle scopes is where leupy really gets outclassed! There is many brands that produce better spotters and binos while generally costing less. Their second and third tier sport optics might as well be made by tasco.

                          I agree 100% with you. I'm not trading my Leica binoculars or Swarovski spotting scope for anything.

                            yep, Lp has a very excellent track record for service and there glass is good, have had a number of the glass loose tracking abilities and/or reticle distruction..literally. I still use them...leaning toward a different brand/animal this summer tho'.

                              In some circles you would be called a hunting snob... Oh Carlton bring me my whine while I look through my swarvoski spotter... Insert rich man laugh oh Carlton look at the commoners using ugh leupold stuff so inferior. So I'm a commoner I buy my leupolds used... I use a nikon spotter and I have a set of redfield binos and nikon binos.
