Leupold & Stevens, Inc.
Leupold has replaced its Vari¿¿¿X II series with the VX¿¿¿I and VX¿¿¿II scopes. Since then, the Rifleman trio has been added: 2¿¿¿7x33, 3¿¿¿9x40 and 4¿¿¿12x40. The goal, says Mike Slack, "is to make Leupold scopes available to more shooters." With prices starting at less than $200, the Rifleman line is accessible. For 2004, the VX¿¿¿I will be offered in matte finish; the VX¿¿¿II has already been upgraded. Big news is dissolution of the Vari¿¿¿X III line, to be replaced by VX¿¿¿III scopes. Booth #4233.
