I ran across a new old stock Leupold Vari X111 3.5X10 a couple of days ago and went back yesterday and purchased it at a very low price. There is quite a story behind why that scope was still around in new condition but I won't go into that. There was about 10 new old stock Leupold scopes, one Bausch and Lomb and one Burris. I wished I had had money to purchase all of them.
I had a naked Ruger No,1 setting around here and it now is wearing the Leupold 3.5x10 and does it look pretty. I wanted a compact scope on it and had a new Burris 3x9 compact but it was matt finished and looked ugly setting on that shiny Ruger No.1. Like I said, I wanted a smaller scope but the Leupold looks great. I've been buying good condition older Leupolds for several years but this is the first new old stock I had found.
