    Hello everybody,

    Could you please tell me your opinion about this scope? I am from Spain and it would be for wild boar and plains game in Africa´s thick bush. I am thinking of order it by internet or say to a friend to bay it in New York (Manhattan) and wait for him to come to Spain with it. Any good internet adress for scopes? a good adress for a optic/hunting shop in Manhattan? Thank you and sorry for my English

    These guys have been around and I know people who have ordered from them without issue. Click on the link below this line for.

    Leupold Golden Ring VX 7 1.5-6X24mm Riflescope FREE S&H 63100, 63110, 63105. Leupold VX-7 Riflescopes, Leupold Riflescopes.

    I don't really have an opinion except that the VX3 version of this scope, well it's 1.5-5x, is a lot less money. I've read that Leupold is actually discontinuing the VX7 line due to poor acceptance of the product line. It seems most people do not see double the performance for double the cost.

    I agree with P. Phil. I own a VX-III 3.5-10 x 50 and like it a lot, but when I purchased a 1-4 x24 for my 416 Rigby, I compared the VX-7, VX-3 and the Nikon African. Side-by-side (in a store), I could not see THAT much improvement with the VX-7. In the end, I bought the Nikon because it appeared brighter and clearer than the VX-3.

    Just my opinon. The fact is, they are all good 'scopes.

    Thank you for your answers.
    Second option is VX-3 1,5-5x20, but I would like it with a 30mm tube diameter and it has to be with illuminated reticle (not illuminated has to be in 1" tube), I am not sure how it will work in daylight...
