I purchased a new VX3 4.5x14x40AO back in '94

Yesterday I was comparing it to a few newer VXI's & even a Simmons that came on a Savage 12FV combo- I was shocked! Optically, my eye seems to prefer BOTH lower quality scopes mentioned..
 
Have things changed THAT much?
 
Regards,

There has been 2 upgrades since '94 So yea I bet you would be shocked at the new VX3's.

I had my Zeiss Conquest and Leupold Vari X III out this weekend.  My Conquest blows my old Vari X III away.

Thanks Everyone.
 
Its great to hear things have really improved.
 
But I was kinda sad when I made this realization in comparing scopes,,,
 
Guess that 'ol girl will be taken off the Wby & get slapped onto an AR or somethin'
