I went to the local gunshop today and picked out a leupold european 30 riflescope as the newest edition to my leupold collection. DO ANY of you optics experts have any feedback on these scopes. I know they use the vx 2 glass in 30mm maintube. It seems tot be a very clear scope and comes with leupold flipup lens caps nice!!!.. any reviews or feedback is appreciated

I have never owned one, but, I do have a little experience with them. They seem to be pretty well made, and I've always thought the vx11 line of scopes were decent. They are a little more expensive than the standard vx11, but , they have a different look all their own.
 All in all, a good scope.

I believe the 30 mm Leupold Euro scope is made with 1inch internal components.I've seen this scope when they first came out and learned that they were made to compete with the Euro scopes.The glass is a Vari XII, most people that bought the scope were unhappy with the performance because they bought the scope for low light use & found it to be on par with 1inch VXII scopes.A good scope but not in the same league as a 30mm Euro scope.

Sould be a good scope.  I like my Leupolds, and this one is newer and better.
But as far as I can tell:
A 3-9x40 VX-II costs $300.
A 3-9x50 VX-II costs $400.
A 3-9x40 VX-II with a bigger tube is a European and costs $400.
A 3-9X50 European costs $450.
 
They say that, in optics, you get what you pay for, but this looks to me like a $300 scope selling for $450.

Yes......That is what a lot of us have against Leupold.  Just about Everything they have is just overpriced.  In my opinion, I think the VX-III is about "right" for the money.  And probably the 3X9 VX-II....if you simply MUST have a Leupold.   Otherwise, you are beginning to spend a lot of money when there are scopes out there that are just as good for less money, or scopes that are actually better for the price of the higher priced Leupolds.
 
But Leupolds are good scopes and they look great and they usually will fit the rifle---and they are lightweight!!   To me the Leupold would be the scope of last resort.  ( if all else fails.....)

Well said, Ed, I'd have to agree.
