Those scopes should be in the 100$ range no more. For 200$ you can get a Bushnell 3200 or a Burris or Sightron along with others which have better glass and better features.

Ya i've got a 3-9x50 on my rifle. Only problem is the power dial is very very stiff [:@].

Is this just my scope or are they all like this ?
They are not "designed" to be very stiff. I have owned three leupolds and two were normal...meaning "stiff". I also have one that suffers form the same issue you are having..."very stiff[:@]".

They are not designed to be that way and Leupold will happily fix it for you. Problem is once it on a gun and sighted in that would more trouble than it is worth...

As far as purchasing a rifleman 3-9x40 for 200$..? I would never do that personally. Owning a rifleman will unquestionably cost you more in the long run then simply buying a VX-II. The resale prices on the rifleman's are extremely low when compared to the VX-II's. Not to mention you can easily purchase a like new VX-II 3-9x40 off ebay for 230$
