The LEUPOLD VX-R 3-9x40 Rifle Scope, Ballistic FireDot Reticle (111236) has a sleek, stylish look and clean lines that create less bulk atop your rifle.
The VX-R riflescope has a rugged 30mm maintube, which offers an increased range of adjustment for windage and elevation over traditional 1" tube. Finger click adjustments for windage and elevation (1/4-MOA) offer absolute repeatability and dependability over a lifetime of extreme use.
VX-R is available with Leupold exclusive FireDot Reticle System. Once activated, the dot within the reticle illuminates with bright, sharp definition, while the rest of the reticle is non-illuminated. This combination leads your eye naturally to the center aiming point and makes target acquisition quick, precise, and simple.
This model riflescope comes with a Ballistic FireDot reticle that is designed for extended range shooting when fast target acquisition is critical. The Ballistic FireDot is ideal for varmint, antelope, and longer shots on big game. It has an extra-bright centerpoint dot.
The VX-R uses Leupold's exclusive Motion Sensor Technology (MST). A single touch of the button activates the illumination, offering eight different intensity settings including a high/low indicator. The exclusive FireDot reticle will automatically switch to "stand-by mode" after five minutes of inactivity, then reactivate whenever the rifle is moved. This eliminates the need for excess movement reaching for buttons, while extending battery life (the VX-R is powered by a readily available CR-2032 coin cell battery).
The one-turn, non-locking eyepiece accommodates a wider spectrum of visual acuity, even in diminishing light. Near-sighted, far-sighted, or anywhere in between, adjusting the focus of the VX-R is smooth, fast, and precise. An Alumina rubber eyepiece guard is included with every scope.
Another Leupold-unique feature that manages light transmission to your advantage. The blackened lens edges work to reduce unwanted glare and diffusion through the lens edges. By using edge blackening, glare from the lens edges is eliminated, resulting in better resolution, improved contrast, and superior optical performance: no matter what the conditions.
A Leupold exclusive, Index Matched Lens System represents Leupold's impeccable light management. Leupold engineers specify different coating materials for each lens surface in the riflescope, based on the lens' index of refraction, placement, and function. Each coating is then layered to maximize light transmission. The result is unparalleled brightness and extremely sharp resolution across the entire visual field.
All exterior lens surfaces are treated with DiamondCoat, an ion-assisted lens coating for optimized light management and unparalleled scratch resistance.
The VX-R scope offers better optical clarity as a result of its lead-free glass lenses. In addition to its superior optics, the lenses are produced with none of the environmentally damaging by-products common to standard glass production. A small step, but one in the right direction.
Leupold twin bias spring erector system features a proprietary beryllium/copper alloy to withstand the most intense abuse. Built with up to 30% more holding force, it virtually eliminates erector system backlash and stress ... all while providing stunning edge-to-edge clarity, color fidelity, and razor sharp images throughout the entire eyebox.
All VX-R scopes feature the Second Generation waterproofing, which uses an exclusive Argon/Krypton gas blend that reduces diffusion of internal gases, resists thermal shock more effectively, and provides absolute waterproof integrity.
Like all Leupold Golden Ring optics, the VX-R has passed the most stringent and harsh testing to assure that it is ready and reliable in any condition. If it says Leupold, you can be sure it is built to last.
