So I just bought the new marlin .308 at a gunshow this past sunday and also picked up a scope. here it is: Shanghai Sunclear Vector Optics Co.,Ltd today at the range, my friend really really liked it and offered to trade his leupold for it: Leupold || VX-3 2.5-8x36mm I said yes after i looked at it (making sure it wasn't counterfeit). It's pretty scratched up, but the lenses are in perfect shape. everything works exactly like it's supposed too. I just want to make sure I got a good deal. Btw, I paid $110 otd for the vector.
