The 2-12x42 model is intersting. has it started shipping, anyone at SWFA seen one? any feedback appreciated.

also the specs on weight show the same weight for both illuminated and non-illuminated models....this cant be right as the illumination adds a
"VX-R" like turret i beleive....does the illumination work the same way?

I'd like to know too...
 
This 6X range follows Burris (again). Wonder which is best.

What reticle pattern would you choose? I am a big fan of the #4 but I like the ILL Duplex. 

 
The VX-6 and VX-R utilizes a powered fiber optic reticle technology. The new illumination system provides true daytime illumination. The illumination does not seem to add much weight. Two reasons I can think of are it is a hybrid fiber/powered system and it uses a motion sensor technology (MST) to save battery.
 
Hopefully mine ships this week....I will keep you posted.

i was emailed this:

I just checked with my Leupold rep on this.  The response I got was “We’re not sure when the VX-6 scopes will be out”.  I can take your order for one, I just can’t say when it will become available.
