I have several Leupold scopes and none of them have ever let me down, I would have a hard time recommending anything else. USA made and IMO the best glass you can get without heading into the crazy priced stuff. Of note is that this is not a true 1x mag at the lowest setting, more like 1.5 to 1.75. It won't work like a red dot both eyes open but is crystal clear at very close ranges. This one is also a great deal if you just want crosshairs, finger click knobs and don't need mil dots or want to deal with batteries.
I have it on my AR 15 (Colt 6920) and it is a perfect scope for it. You can't go wrong with Leupold scope! The price of the VX-2 was surprisingly good. You will probably have to get a cantilever scope mount for it like the very affordable Leapers Accushot 1-Pc Offset Mount w/1 Rings, Weaver/Picatinny Mount for about $13 to move the scope forward a bit and raise it. I cannot say anything bad about this scope so far. Just get it!
I mounted my scope on a Henry .22 Carbine (Evil Roy Special Edition) using the "silver" BLK-261-S 4" Rimfire Unitized Dovetail Mount. The BLK Technologies mount is fantastic...solid as a rock, and good looking! I looked at a LOT of scopes by many manufacturers. I chose Leupold for the quality, the warranty, the service and because it is USA made! The Leupold folks stand 100% behind their craftmanship and product. The Leupold 110793 VX-2 Rifle Scope is perfect for my use as it (1) is great for the .22 cal. application and (2) allows adequate space at the rear of the scope to access the hammer on the Henry carbine with my thumb. The Henry has a safety cock using the hammer and you must have space to get your thumb in there to cock it back to safety. Fantastic. I looked at the Leupold "Hog" scope (and special crosshairs) and decided I wanted one with the regular crosshairs. The set up I have is absolutely great! Now if manufacturers would just bring the volume...
