    Over the weekend I bought a Super Grade Maple model 70. My plans were to put a gloss finish Leupold scope on it but it looks like they’ve discontinued them.
    I can find pretty nice Vari-X II’s but I’m not sure how the glass compares to the newer models.
    My question is, is the glass that much better in the newer ones to suck it up and deal with the matte finish? Or maybe another gloss finish recommendation?
    I have a Vortex Viper and Zeiss Conquest on other hunting rifles and if the older Leupold is comparable I’d be satisfied.
    I’ll add that I’m looking at 3-9 or 4-12 variables.

    I don’t know about others opinions but I’ve got a glossy leupold from the early 90’s that I really like. It has the duplex reticle and has never come off zero since it was mounted.

    I see them for sale on long range hunting quite often, and for good prices. You might check them out.
