LEUPOLD Mark4 Vs VX-3i LRP(New Product 2017) for civilians Shooter...s...

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

It's very dificult to find the Mark 4 in USA now ! :( Because...

 

"With the retirement of the venerable Mark IV the new VX-3i LRP appears to be an excellent choice as a replacement or upgrade."

Interesting thread Bergeon... I'm contemplating having a good clear out of rifles and a couple of scopes to fund a 6.5 Creedmoor, and some decent glass on it. I currently have a Leupold VX-L 4.5-14x50 scope and a Sightron non illuminated S3 6-24 x 50 LRMOA reticle. Although i love both scopes, i just enjoy using the Leupold more. I've looked at what new stuff Aim Sport has to offer, along the lines of my Sightron S3. Also, what Leupold have to offer. And from lots of reading up, it seems the Leupold VX-3i LRP is a very good bit of kit. From what i've read it seems you have now bought one. Have you used it much, and what do you think about its all around quality and functionality?

Cheers

Chaz.

Hi Chaz,

 

Yest I'm the happy proprietary of this new Leupold VX -3i LRP ! But I don't used it much yet to tell you à return of use with it!

 

I just zeroted the elevation turet Zero Stop at 100 m and take à Mark4 IMS 30 mm 20 MOA Mount (Leupold # 171987) on my RPR 6.5 Creedmoor!

With the 20 MOA Ruger rail + the 20 MOA of the IMS I have 67.5 MOA (with a zero at 100 m) to use my Scope to LR !

 

To more information in the Zero Stop elevation turret look at this link (sorry in French! ;) ​) http://www.uvsonmidrange.com/t16697-choix-d-optique-lr

 

A+ for more return use with this good scope for LR!

 

Laurent.

Excellent! And sound a great set up. In my eyes, that combo would be hard to beat! Maybe it could, Just! And that's if the rifle was the Tikka T3X TAC A1??. But i have no room to talk, as i have neither the Ruger or Tikka, or the scope! :lol:

Keep us updated on how things pan out for that great combo! :)

Cheers

Chaz.

I remember it being announced last year that as of January 2018, Leupold will only be supplying Mk4 scopes to the military.
