I have several and except my vIII 4-12X40 i dont like em much. I prefer redfield even though they are made by leupold. I use weaver and burris more than anything else. Mainly weaver.

I own two Vari XIII 3.5-10 x 50's very happy with both. I bought my first one in 1995 and the second in 2010.

I also own a Burris and a Redfield and like both.

Leupold makes a good scope,but they bank on their name.For the price of most of their scopes,you can get a better scope for less money buying other brands.

Sightron,Weaver,and Zeiss get my money anymore if I need optics under 1k.

I have a VXIII 4.5x14X40mm and its ok for what I use it for on the rifle it's on. In the price range it's in, there's not too many manufactures that can beat their glass, however there's far better glass if you can spend the $$$$. I also own Premiere Reticles, and USO scoped rifles, and these scopes smoke the hell out of anything Leupold makes or probably ever will. Still all in all Leupold makes a good scope in the VXIII and Mark 4 series for what they are.

It would depend on which series of Leupold it is.If it's not a VXIII series or better,I wouldn't pay 150 for it.
