I had a chance today to purchase a new in the box Leica 4.5x14x42 30mm scope. The asking price was $700. I am familiar with the brand as I have Binos by them. I also have numerous Zeiss and Leupold VX III's. I like good optics but was just unsure and undecided on this particular scope. I had heard that they were made by Leupold some years ago. Anyway, did I pass on a good deal?

IMHO I say pass.....

 

I have seen a couple of the scopes in question, and they didn't really impress me that much.

I'm sure they are a good scope, but for $700 there are a lot of other options out there.

If you are a scope collector, they may have some value some day.
