My oldest is an H prefix VXII-3x9

Got it from my dad, it has a beautiful purple'ish hue to it as its changed over the years. Its mounted on a Ruger #1V in 22-250 I bought in 1984 after working an entire summer. I still have the original receipt Smile

I have four:
3-9x33 VX-2 rimfire 2007
3-10x40 VX-3 2007
Silver (it's on a stainless steel & grey laminate Ruger) 3-10x40 VX-3 2009
6x42 VX2 2010
I still have all the boxes, paperwork, etc.
All fitted with Leupold Alumina flip caps because they're the best I've come across, bar none.

Did I say I like Leupold scopes? Very Happy

prefix e =1974------z=1992
suffix a=1993------y=2013
2014=AA
2015=AB

there is no I or O as they can be mistook for numerals.

I have to admit to also owning a 4x32 Tasco Pronghorn of indeterminate age & Chinee manufacture, which sits on my Sharps Innova ratting air rifle (the night time ratter is a suppressed Weihrauch HW85 wearing Pulsar N550 NV...).
Got a 3-9x40 Zeiss Conquest on an L1A1 over in the US & my foxing 22-250 wears a Schmidt & Bender 5-25x56 PMII, mostly for its functionality in low light conditions.

I just wish my eyes were still up to using iron sights out past 100yds... Sad

Ive got an eight power KAHLES sitting redundant in cabinet..beautiful clear glass,just not needed as rifles all got loopies on them.
and bushnell 3x9x40mm and spare m8 4x semi compact LOL
I recall a few years ago buying a cheap 2nd hand 4x32 nikko stirling to go on main hunting rifle as couldnt afford anything else..it lasted 6 months.
