Question on Leupolds.

I've had 4 over the years. I currently have 2 that I purchased more than 25 years ago at a sale. One is a 4X M8 that is on it's 3rd rifle, a 700 BDL in 308 win. The other a 2X-7X VX1 that is on it's 4th rifle, a Browning A bolt in 300 wsm. I've never had a problem with either.
Both have exceptional clarity. I was wondering what they would be the equivelent to, in the current grades. As mentioned, both are in excess of 25 years.
Thanks

The VX1 is probably the vari-x 1 and that is equivalent to the rifleman. The M8 4 power is most equivalent to the FX series scopes. Thumbs up

I own more luppys than any other scopes. I have one on my M-4 and one on my sniper rifle. Both have "been used hard and put awy wet" and never given me one issue. Cutomer service is the finest you will ever see.
