I just picked up a  4.5-14X50mm, 52086, Silver finish, 30mm tube, duplex reticle, long range, target knobs, side focus, the older Vari-X III. I know they have made many improvements since these but I have an old vari-X I that I bought new years ago and it has been a great and tough scope and has been on three different rifles and still working like new.  any opinions on these older Leupolds? I plan on putting this on my stainless Savage 7mm,Mag.

 I've got an '85 model Vari-X III 3.5-10x40AO I bought used in '87.  It has been on a 7.5lb .300 for the better part of 20yrs and used,but not abused,ALOT. Only problem I ever had with it was the AO ring tightened up. Leupold fixed it and evaluated the scope finding no other problems. If I ever question the functioning of a scope,this scope and an old K4 Weaver w/Micro-Trac are the ones I use to eliminate a rifle problem.

I don't think anybody will tell you it is a bad scope.  If it is paid for that is even better.

I didn't expect too much bad about this scope, I was interested in anyone's experiance with this scope and the target knobs, friction or click adjustments, etc. on this older model.
Thanks for the replies.

The Weaver K4 Micro-Tracs are a huge favorite of mine.

Anyone know if I can get the M1 turrets in silver? To replace the stock target knobs.

The 30 mm tube on these scopes have 1 inch internal components.Leupold lost many loyal customers when it was revealed they were using the erectors from 1 inch scopes.
