I've had mine for 2 years and love it. I have to agree with Troy, it's the best scope you can get for the money. All Leupolds are pretty much kick ass.

I agree. An excellent value. One thing to be aware of. Leupold has recently changed the model designations on their scopes. The old model Vari-X II had friction adjustments that did not have clicks. The new similar sounding model VX-II has click adjustments. I don't know why they made the names so confusing, but they are not exactly the same scopes. The new VX-I is more like the old Vari-X II with the friction adjustments. They are all good scopes, but I prefer the clicks. Watch-Six

I've got three of them and they are great scopes. Leupold will put target turrets on for about $80 last time I checked (but they do stick up a bit).

you might prefer the 2 to 7 power one for the AR15, it is smaller, lighter and I can use the both eyes open BAC method on 2x. And it is about $10 less to boot!

I have one on my Rem .30-06 Synth Auto - just fondled it last night... worth every penny! Good luck.

I love my 3-9x40. Beautiful optics. I've had it for 10 years and never had a problem. I just picked up a Vari X III, LR M1. Which is a bit more expensive but I absolutely love it. I highly recommend Leupold.
