I am looking at different scopes, Not deciding which yet. Just wondering if there was a difference between the Leupold 3-9x33 Rimfire EFR  and the 4-12x40 AO besides the basics like length,  weight, 40 vs 33. What I was really wandering, what is the extent of the parralax adjustments on both. What is the lowest paralax adjustment on both because I cant find that info anywhere. Thanks.

The EFR goes down to 10 meters. The 4-12 goes down to 25 yards.
Both are great scopes for rimfire and airgun use. The 3-9 is a light weight and fairly compact sweetie, though.

Welcome to O.T.

In general terms, when Leupold competes with Leupold, Leupold loses.

There are better deals on better scopes.  Look at Weaver too, their rimfire scopes are suprisingly good for the money.

I was just trying to figure if the 4x was much diff than the 3x because they are close in price,size, etc. I am looking at other BIG RIFLE scopes also, but am narrowing my choices.  I have semi decided to stay with "rimfire" scopes.  I am leaning toward the Leupold and the competitor of the same design(3-9x32). The main reason the Leupold is in the run is the scope I use on my Hunting rifles is a VX2 3-9x40 and is quite possibly the best scope I have ever looked through. Since my experience is very limited in this area (until 4 years ago I only used open sights), I know for sure the Leupold is money well spent. I am very leary of the new BSA Sweet 22 with side focus even though I really like what I see. However I had a Sweet 17 on a 77/22 mag that I ended up letting my boys make scrap metal out of(The BSA). I would really like to save money, but the REDHEAD 4x scope I have for backup just aint gonna do it and I don't want to waste $100 to $200 to purchase another backup or scrap project. Yes I have heard much good on Weaver which is the main reason I am giving competitor a chance(I hear they are basically the same). that and they also have finger adjustable knobs( which is the only reason I havent just gone and gotten the Leupold in the first place.)

By the way, I did name a scope in my last reply along with the Leupold, and I didn't call it competitor. Is there a reason it was edited? I would like to know in case I've done something wrong.

This site is sponsered by SWFA so why would they want to advertise a competitor?  Read the rules and abide, it's only fair and a small price to pay for this great forum!

I do not understand why they don't want me to mention competitors name. However , it is their rules and their site,I wouldn't have done it  if I had known they were competition, I did read the rules and I follow rules. Sorry if I made the offense, even though in ignorance.

No problem bigbovine. There are filters that automatically remove certain words, including naughty ones.

This may make my decision. If I have a scope with adjustable objective that goes between say 50 yards and up to whatever and set it and leave it on 50( or if it started at 10yrd and went up , but still left on 50 yrd), would that scope essentially operate as a scope with a set parralax of 50yrds or will it be a tad diff. That may sound dumb, but Was wondering if there was something that might make the view diff because of the extra mechanism.

I can't help a lot with this discussion, but I do feel like I wouldn't really consider a sweet along-side the Leupold. I own the 3-9x33 EFR and it is really one of my favorite scopes for an air rifle. I've had a couple BSA scopes and don't feel I see what other people do through them. To me they seem a little hazy, and just not as good visually. Side Focus is a neat feature, but looks to me like you have to spend $400 before it starts working on an airrifle. The 3-9x33 is a solid air rifle choice.

"The 3-9x33 is a solid air rifle choice."  ....especially if you are shooting 10-20 meters...
