I came across a Leupold Vari-X III 3.5x10 for $250 and was wondering if this was a good deal? The scope is in excellent shape the only noticeable thing about it is that you can tell where the scope rings were.
Its a 40mm and I believe its the glossy finish. It shines a bit. I did get mainly because of the Leupold name and the warranty that is with it. Oh, it also has an adjustable objective lens. :sniper: :gun4:
I am 46 and getting older. Patience is not what blows my hair back. I live in an area where people tend to keep their scopes FOREVER. And then if for some reason they decide to sell them they want 5 dollars less that what they paid for them. "After all, this scope is only 10 years old and it is good as new" :wink:
If the resale values up there are soo high, and if people are willing (foolish) enough to buy used scopes at such higher resale prices, it sounds like you could have a good used scope business up in the U.P.
I went to law school in Michigan my first year and froze my butt. Needless to say, I transferred out and got my LL.M. in International law down here is Sunny Miami. Anyway, while I was up there I didn't have the chance to gauge the market for scopes. Had I known that, and had ebay been available at that time, I bet you that I could have made a nice little side money to pay for my law school.
