Are you referring to the VXII or the VX2? Here are some examples off the sample list.

And a link to Leupold's website on the VX2.

Cataract,

Leupold has made some changes though. Through the years, the model number have changes as well as the features.

Here is a timeline by serial number.


When Leupold started in 1963-1983, they created the Vari-X II
These featured a Magnesium Fluoride coating, 82% light transmission, micro-friction 1/2 MOA adjustments, had a three piece main body, had twenty eight total minutes of internal adjustments, were nitrogen purged, and they contained lead.

Then they moved on to Vari Xc II, From 1984-2000. They still used Magnesium fluoride, maintained 82% light transmission, implemented finer adjustments, 1/4 MOA per click with 56 total internal MOA. Moved to a three piece main body, still purged with nitrogen, and still contained lead.

Now in 2004-2011 they changed again. Now they boasted the new VX II had multi-coated lenses and sustained 92% light transmission.  Made the turrets field adjustable turrets with 1/4 MOA increments and had 56 MOA total, introduced fast focus diopter, that locked, still purged with nitrogen, and still contained lead.

Then Leupold created the VX-2. Improving the multi-coating to Match index with diamond coat and edge blackened lenses giving the shooter 94% light transmission, finger adjustable turrets in 1/4 MOA with 56 total MOA. Still using a two piece body. Now using an exterior thread diopter. But now using Argon and Krypton gases as a purging agent. No longer containing lead.

All of Leupold's Riflescopes are made in Beaverton Oregon, USA.
