Looking for value differences between a pair of older Leupys...
Both Vari-X IIIs one is a 6.5-20X50 AO 1", and the other is a 3.5-10x40 1" with target turrets.
The 3.5-10 came off an old Police sniper rifle.
Thanks for any insight!

Part of the value will depend on your intended use and condition of the scopes. What reticle do they have?

Yeah that would help! Both have duplex reticals, both in great condition, the 3.5-10x40 is a tactical. I was looking to trade my 6.5-20x50 AO for a scope with target turrets, its on my varmint rifle, but I'd like to dial up insead of holding over when I use it to shoot steel at 600yrds. The lower mag would also help at closer ranges.

I know the added magnification, and 50mm objective add a lot of cost on new scopes when comparing, but the targets add to his value over mine. Didn't know if the tactical line added any value, durability...

I would think that the higher power AO scope is worth more buy at least $100!
