Have any of you messed around at leupolds custom shop site? I was trying to decide on a scope for my new calling rifle but I couldn't find one with all the features I wanted until I found their site. The problem is that now I wont be happy until I have the scope I designed and the mods cost more than the scope to begin with! :signbummer8tl: I want a 4-12x40 VX-I with a ballistic matched retilce, color faded from gun metal grey to black, black spatter, and engraved with a coyote........that makes for an expencive VX-I. Chack it out, it's alot of fun! https://secure.leupo...custom_shop.php
My guns are mine, they aren't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like. So I guess the government is **** out of luck.

I had them build me a 4.5x14 - 50 LR fade red to black from the front with red splatter varmint reticle and target turrets. came out beautiful took about 1 1/2 months total. I was hoping they could adjust the eye relief to give me a little more but "no-can-do" as this was going on a striker in 300wsm.

Last night I was tinkering on that site and I had my scope all figured out, today I went on there and now it says I can get the VX-I with reticle and the engraving I want but no custom paint. :1087:

Is there much of a price differential from a standard scope of the same model?

I sent them my 41/2 to 14 vx3 and had them change the turrete to target turrets, with the bullet drop compensator built in. Great job and the price was very fair.Good luck.

I have sent them many scopes over the last few years for upgrades or repairs and have never waited more than 2 weeks always quick service.
