Leupold Custom Dial System™ (CDS) models allow you to quickly dial your elevation to different ranges with a custom elevation dial matched to your specific ballistics. Simply 'dial in' the range you are shooting at and hold the cross hair dead on. The CDS dial is an external dial (no dust cover) allowing for very fast range adjustments.
The scope comes with a standard MOA style elevation dial. Once you have the scope, you will provide Leupold with the serial number and your ballistics. Leupold makes your custom dial and ships it to you with installation instructions.
The VX®-2 is one of Leupold??s most popular lines of riflescopes, for reasons that become clear to anyone who picks one up. It??s packed full of useful features, including precise ¼-MOA finger click adjustments; the Quantum Optical System with Index Matched?? lens coatings for exceptional image brightness and clarity; externally threaded fast-focus eyepiece; tactile power indicator; and for the first time, the option of Leupold??s Custom Dial System?? in select models. The VX®-2 is built to meet the demands of today??s serious hunters and shooters.

Quantum Optical System
Leupold optical engineers and scientists, mechanical engineers and product line managers have developed the Quantum Optical System for Leupold??s newest riflescopes, including the VX-1, VX-2, VX-R and VX-6. By repositioning optical elements, employing new coatings and importantly, leaving key, time-tested mechanical aspects of the Vari-X system untouched, significant performance gains have been achieved. The VX-2 has up to 94% light transmission.
Index Matched Lens System
A Leupold® exclusive, this system has nearly perfected Leupold??s already 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, layering each coating to eliminate reflections and maximize light transmission. The result is unparalleled brightness and extremely sharp resolution across the entire visual field.
This coating on the exterior lenses gives you the ultimate in abrasion resistance and light transmission. The result is a flawless sight picture over a lifetime of hard use. DiamondCoat?? has made a difference in battle; now it can make a difference where you hunt.
2nd Generation Argon/Krypton Waterproofing
Select models like the VX-2 feature Leupold??s exclusive, proprietary Argon/Krypton gas blend. Its advantages are two fold: it nearly eliminates the effects of thermal shock, and the Argon/Krypton molecules are significantly larger than nitrogen molecules, reducing the diffusion of gases sealed inside your scope even more than Leupold??s proven nitrogen technology already does.
The generous eyebox makes it faster and easier to get your eye behind the riflescope and achieve a full, clear sight picture. Setting up for longer shots you'll appreciate the flexibility it affords, and in close up big game or dangerous game situations the quick target acquisition will be the difference maker. At high power the longer eye relief and more generous eyebox gives you incredible head position latitude and an improved sight picture that fills the eyepiece completely - putting you in better position to make the shot of a lifetime.
Blackened Lens Edges
Blackened lens edges reduce unwanted glare and diffusion through the lens edges to provide better resolution, improved contrast and superior optical performance.
Externally Threaded Fast-Focus Eyepiece
The sleek design of the externally threaded fast-focus eyepiece provides for faster focusing of the reticle under any conditions.
1/4 MOA Finger Click
Finger click adjustments for windage and elevation (¼-MOA) offer absolute repeatability and dependability over a lifetime of extreme use.
