Some of you may remember the Remington 700ADL that I picked up back in 2011. Fine little rifle, bought off a pawn shop shelf.
I really liked that rifle, and part of the appeal was the Leupold VX-1 scope that was on it when I bought it. Those old VX-1s didn't have click-adjustment turrets, but it stayed zeroed, shot well, and eventually it went home with a grandkid. So be it, that's what PawPaws do.
But, I liked that Leupold well enough that I remembered it.
A couple of weeks ago, I bought a Ruger American in .308. Of course it didn't come with a scope. So, today on my lunch hour I was looking around in Academy and came upon what looked like a pretty good deal. A Leupold VX-1 on sale. So, I picked one up.
Later, as I unboxed it, I got a nice surprise. These turrets are click adjustable, with nice, tactile clicks. This scope is the standard, 3X9X40, ubiquitous on deer rifles all over the country. It has a matte finish and the Leupold gold ring around the objective.
Nothing fancy, just a nice little workaday scope. It should fit very nicely on that Ruger American. And, for an out-the-door price under $200, I don't think I did bad at all. It was right at the Amazon price, and I walked out with it.
Now, if I can just remember where I put that set of low rings.
