I bought a used  Vari-X II 2x7x33 at a gun show for $150 and put it on a AR15 riser that I milled down into a cantilevered 91/30 Mosin Nagant mount.

The scope was stressed. It was on a diving board on a hard kicking rifle.

The power ring got loose and the image jumped around 10moa when I moved the power ring.

I sent it back to Leupold and two weeks later they sent me a new in the box VX-I 2x7x33.

They look like the same thing, are they the same thing?

Are the new ones made in the USA?

TIA
Clark

Sounds like you got way more than you paid for.

Here's how I understand it

 

VX I replaces Vari X II

VX II      "       Vari X III

VX III Upgrade of VX III

 

VX 7 - best scope in the world

Be glad you bought a loopie, had it been a $1000+ euro scope you would have gotten a repair bill (in 6 months)
And yes today's VX I is yesterday's VX II. You can call Leupold they'll explain that to you.
