I have an older custom mauser with gloss everything and I want to replace the glass on it.

I want this:  http://swfa.com/Leupold-15-5x20-VX-3-Riflescope-P12635.aspx But, it only comes in matte.

Will Leupold put a #4 in this:  http://swfa.com/Leupold-15-5x20-VX-3-Riflescope-P12631.aspx  (Yes, the picture is matte, but the text says gloss.)

For sure you can get it through the custom shop. I am surprised you can't get it as a regular product.

Btw, the custom shop can do a lot that is not even listed on their site.

Never been a huge Leupold fan but I just ordered a vx3 through the custom shop.  I haven't recieved it yet was was very happy with the ordering process.  They were very helpful and willing to put together what I wanted.  They also saved me money from the website tool because they were able to start on a different base scope not listed.  Saved me 50 bucs so I would give them a ring instead of doing it through their site.

According to the custom shop, I can get the gloss model with a German #1 post.

I had a #4 put in my VX-IIc 1-4x20 for BG and DG hunting by the custom shop. I used it in Africa in 2009 for plains game from Warthog to Eland.
 
It did the job but I found the fine cross hairs still quite thick. I prefer a Zeiss #8 reticle on my scopes now.
