Leupold VX-6: the best Marlin scopes.
The Leupold VX-I comes in two sizes: 2-7x33mm and 3-9x40mm. We are recommending the 3-9x40mm as it is far more powerful than the 2-7x33mm and is a great all-around scope for big game hunting. The VX-I is a lightweight scope weighing just 20 ounces and features a 3 to 9 times magnification. Specifications for the VX-I are:
- 3 to 9x magnification
- 12.4” tube
- 1.6” tube diameter
- Eye relief of 3.7”
- 59 windage adjustment
- LR Duplex reticle
- Multicoat lens
One of the standout points with the VX-I is that the eye relief is slightly larger than our previous two choices. This allows for further comfort and protection when shooting more powerful rifles. The magnification and reticle allow for clear shots. Brightness levels are near perfect. The only small issue we experienced is that it took a bit of adjusting to find the correct eye relief distance
