I have a chance to buy a rifle with a scope installed - and the guy won't sell it in pieces.

 

The scope is a Leupold VXIII LR, 8.5-25x50.  It is in good shape, no ring marks, what is it worth?  I know they sell them here new for $850; don't know what these thigns go for used.

 

 

Anybody know what I can get for it.  If it ain't much, I won't buy the rifle.  if I can pull out at least $500, I'll do the deal.

What reticle, RC??

 

That scope should be worth at least $500, I would think. Leupolds do hold their value better than the Japs....(I typed that just for you, Dale.) 

 

What's the Hive think??

You shouldn't have any problem with the leupold selling, they do hold their value quite well. Put it up on a couple of optics forums for sale sites and it should go easy.

Fine duplex reticle.

 

If I can pull at least $500 out of it, I might just buy the rifle!

 

 

Thanx for the info.
