Leupold Rifleman 3x9x40 Rifle Scopes

Rifle Scopes Manufacturer: Leupold
Leupold Model: Rifleman 3x9x40
Review Category: Rifle Scopes

Purchase: Rifle Scopes I bought this Leupold Rifleman at Academy in NW Florida at a 10% off sale for $161.99 plus 7.5% tax.

Things I like about the Leupold Rifleman 3x9x40 Rifle Scopes: I liked the Leupold warranty, the optical clarity, and the quality of construction.

What I don't like about the Leupold Rifleman 3x9x40: After failing to boresight the scope on two collimators and two Savage rifles (a 30-30 and a .270) I took the scope back to Academy. The technicians at Academy confirmed that I had a warped tube. I received a full refund. The scope reached an elevation and windage limit at 7" low and 7" right.

Rifle Scopes Rifleman 3x9x40 quality: As described in the first Leupold review. I concur completely. Great optics, VERY stiff focus knob. Great eye relief at all magnifications. Unfortunately, I managed to buy the rare defective bottom of the line Leupold scope. The Academy personnel confirmed that they have NEVER had a defective Leupold scope returned to them.

Rifleman 3x9x40 summary: I will buy three more Leupolds within the next two months. The fact that they are usually VERY good optics, are made in AMERICA, and are very affordable compared to some other foreign makes right now, make my future purchase decision sound. I have also hunted with friends who have always owned Leupold and will continue to do so.

Rating for this Leupold product: 3
