Found this online,

Leupold M8-4X Duplex -$100 (+$12 shipping).  Is this a good price if it is in good condition?

Used scopes from questionable sources sight unseen sounds like a good way to get screwed.

If you can go look at it and it is the real thing and in fair condition buy it if there is something wrong wiht it you can send it back to Leupold to be fixed.  There are some fake chinese copies out there.  There are also some older scopes with some wear that are still useable but older which is highly likely to be what it is. Huge advances in optical coatings have occurred in the last 30 yrs so its a judgement call. Personally I wouuld suggest you spend a little more and buy this.

The price is good if the scope is as you describe. I have had pretty good luck buying used so you should consider how good you feel about the source and make your decision. If they offer a 3 day inspection go for it. On the other hand the new redfields are only $30-$40 higher new and are probably pretty comparable optically as the older FX. I don't mean that as a slam either. OTOH I just bought a used vari-xii from the samples list at SWAF and am very pleased.

Ebay taught me that for used purchases only pay what I'm willing to lose.  It is a form of gambling in a sense.  Almost always if I can't handle it I buy dirt cheap.  I own an M8 2.5X and would not sell it, it has superb eyerelief.

  I just bought a NIB M8 2.5X for $180 shipped. 
 
  $100 + $12 shipping for that M8 4X sounds TOO good.
