    Any way to track down what model of scope this is?

    I just posted a thread about a couple of new guns I bought, including a nice hunting rifle:

    http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...ar-honors.html

    I have a question about the rifle that I thought might get lost in the mix there, so I wanted to post a separate thread.

    The rifle has a Leupold scope on it. It does not say what model of scope it is, though the scope does have a serial number on it. I went on Leupold's website and searched that serial number but nothing came up.

    Does anyone know how I can find out what model of scope this is? Thanks in advance for your help!

    Can't tell from the pic there in the other thread. Is it a variable or fixed power? I do notice the windage and elevation knobs are low profile though.

    It is a 3-9 power variable. I am not really well versed in how to tell scopes apart, so I would appreciate the help in finding out exactly what it is.

    Looks like either a VX-I or VX-II 3-9x50, to me. Hard to tell which, but styling of the eyepiece and objective don't match the VX-III or the Rifleman series. You can call 1-800-LEUPOLD to verify the serial number, and they may be able to tell you what it actually is.

    Take the scope covers off. It will say right on the scope bell on the front.

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    From the picture it looks like a VX-1. As per above it will say on the scope. Leupold scopes are IMO very good, and I have them on all my rifles except one which is a special purpose 22-250

    I checked and all of my Leupolds have the model on the bell. Some are in gold lettering. Some are just stamped and hard to read. Can't beat the lifetime warranty.
