Someone offered to sell me a Tikka T3 Lt, .223, topped with a Leupold Vari x1.   I think I read somewhere that the Vari x1 is equivalent to the current VX 2.  I believe it is a 4-12, but I'll have confirm that.  It's used stuff but all in good to excellent shape.  How would you rate that scope, compared to say a Sightron 2, and what's a ball park figure for its original price?

jacKG,i bought a 3x9x40 from bass pro for $200 about 2 years ago.regular price was $220.i got 20% off.i was going to buy a vx2 but a leopold rep was there working the counter and he convinced me to buy the vx1 .60 dollars price difference between the two and he told me the only difference was one having friction and other  click adjustments.i also have a sightron 3x9x42 ll that you mentioned comparing .i would rate vx1 and the sightron ll about the same.both are pretty decent scopes .the friction adjustments on the vx1 does not bother me at all.once you get a leopold dialed in,she's much going to stay there.
