Okay Chris here is the question:

What can you tell me about a Leupold Vari-x III Tactical, 4.5-14 x 40 with AO? Looked all over your website, and all over Leupold's as well but couldn't find anything about it.  Is it a discontinued model?  Would a used one be a smart purchase?  Approximately what year was this model sold/introduced to the public?  Thanks.

Any used Leupold IMHO is a smart purchase.  It should sell used for about $300-$400 depending on condition and reticle.  eBay sold Leupolds usually fetch an additional 30%.  You can determine when it was made by the serial number located on the center saddle section.  Beginning in 1974, Leupold began letter coding riflescope serial numbers. All scopes produced during that year had the letter E as a prefix to the serial number. The next year the letter code was advanced to F, and so on through the alphabet. The letters I,O, and Q, were skipped so that they wouldn't be confused with numbers. When they reached Z in 1992 they started over at the beginning of the alphabet with letter A. This time they used a suffix.
