Default Leupold American Marksman 3-9x40

What is the build quality of this scope? What model is it comparable to?

From the looks of it, reminds me of my VX-1.

Nice light-weight hunting scopes; mine's lasted quite awhile living on top of my 30-06.

If you look at question 18 on the Cabelas website they basically say it's a Cabelas branded VX-1. Check-out Amazon for a better deal on a VX-1 3-9x40 at $174.79, but the VX-2 3-9x40 goes for $230.17. Per www.leupold.com these two models have been discontinued, so I assume Luepold will keep the Marksman on their website until Cabelas sells-out their stock and then it becomes an unkown orphan.

Link to Question 18: (you need to click Q&A and then work your way to No. 18) http://www.cabelas.com/product/LEUPO...1.uts?slotId=0

I'm actually looking at getting a VX-2 4-12x40 off Amazon as the dails on the VX-Freedom look kind of junkie.

I was told it's replacing the Rifleman. I thought I saw that the retail price was around $189.

I just bought the VX3ii 4.5x14x50, but if you can get the VX2 for $230, I'd buy a bunch.
