Last night I realised that I bought my Leupold VX111 3.5-10x40 over 20 years ago. It has been mounted on my Sako 270 Winchester rifle from day 1 & has not moved since. I hunt in cold & dusty conditions most of the time, & every so often it can also rain & when it does it pours. I really enjoy using quality equipment & Leupold is just that, plain & simply well made & designed to last. It continues to be a pleasure using this scope while hunting & I can see myself using Leupold products into the future.
I purchased two of these over the years and I am very pleased. The simplicity of this scope make it an ideal scope for my Vermont deer stalking. I have used this scope model on both a Howa .223 Rem. for calling predators as well as on my M96 rifle built 1905 in 6.5 X 55 Mauser for deer hunting. The generous eye relief and clarity make it a fast handling scope for the thick Vermont cover. Regardless of the critter this scope has helped me bag it keeps on assisting me harvesting fur and venison. The one on my M96 6.5 X 55 scored again this season with a nice Vermont buck.
5/5 legs 5/5 head* I'm primarily using this for video with a little bit of photography on the side. Normal APS-C dslr for photo, but very full video rig (~12lbs/5.5kg). Considering one of the primary uses for this is tripod is heavy hunting scopes, tripod handles my video setup like a champ. Entire tripod is fairly heavy (definitely not carbon fiber), but I much prefer solid and stable over convenience. *Very minor stick when you start but once you're moving fluid smooth. The initial stick is annoying but most of what I need to shoot with a tripod is either locked off or has starts edited out [you can't get around stick short of a true viscous fluid head (Vinten, Sachtler, etc) which are roughly a $mortgage payment$].
