Leupold’s first variable power scout scope

Leupold is now selling a variable powered scout-style scope, the VX-II 1.5-4x28mm Scout, through their custom shop. Traditionally scout scopes are fixed power. This scope has 7.75″ of eye relief on high power and 8.75″ on low power.

If this sells well, I expect we will see a production version of the VX-II 1.5-4x28mm Scout.

Pricing has not yet been released.

    I love the variable scout scope concept. I use a Leupold 1×4 shotgun scope w/ the turkey-plex reticle on my Beowulf and with a couple simple mods (proper turrets and an extended handle on the power ring)it works great. And at a price point that I can afford to replace quite a few times (not that I’ve had to) and still pay less than a Trijicon. An illuminated reticle would make it absolutely aces however.

  • Has anybody heard about the sight expeditor? Web site says its like a kisser button for your eye relief, it looks like a good idea. Link, sightexpeditor.com

  • Very good scope. I believe this will be in production. I’ll be interested in the price tag when in general assembly.

    Just got mine delivered from the custom shop on June 29, 2011. Only way to get one is to call, but I was told it will go into production late this year. Paid $389 shipped to my door.

    It’s going in my Ruger Gunsite scout..
