Does anyone know if Leupold can change out a reticle on an existing scope that is less than one year old.  It's a 4.5-14 VX-III with the 30 mm tube and a duplex reticle and I'd like to change it out to a TMR reticle.  Is this even do-able?  Cost?  I presume the Leupold Custom Shop would be the stop but they're super hard to get ahold of.  Any help?  Thanks everyone!

Probably a lot easier to trade it in on a scope that has the reticle you are looking for you can get a price quote if you fill out the form on this link otherwise call the custom shop but a trade would be a lot quicker and less painful.

Yes - I recently asked Leupold if I could get a Varmint Hunter Reticle in my 12XFXIII, they said they could do it and quoted somewhat over $100 plus shipping and insurance of about $20. Don't know about a TMR but I would be surprised if they could not handle that.
 
Some time ago I asked if I could get a mil dot reticle installed in my 4.5-14X40 M4 and they quoted about $125 or about.
 
This summer I sent back a 25 year old plus 12X40 M8 for installation of target adjustments. My scope was gone for about 2 weeks and came back with the target adjustments installed plus a complete inspection, nitrogen refilling and resealing. Leupold also installed, no charge, a new multi coat 4 objective lens.
 
I sent customer service an email, they quoted a price and shipping instructions, I shipped off the scope. When the work was completed Leupold left me a voice mail for payment & shipping instructions and I had the scope 3 days later.
 
Great friendly service  - this is why I am willing to pay 25% - 35% more for a Leupold scope.

Thanks for the help.  i'll try the email route to Leupolds Custom Shop.  That'll be way cheaper than another $500 for a trade.  Glad it went well for you.

I had a reticle change out in the past couple of years.  They quoted me over the phone, I shipped it out and they contacted me when payment was due.  All told, less than 3 weeks out and back.
 
I only have one Leupold, but I have to say the service was great.
