Note: Reticle image is a close-up view and not to scale
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.
It's easy to see why we say the new VX-R is no ordinary riflescope. Aside from the all-new fiber optic LED illumination system employed in the exclusive FireDot Reticle System, you'll also appreciate the sleek, businesslike look and clean lines atop your favorite rifle. One look through the new VX-R and you'll be able to appreciate all the benefits that Leupold's state-of-the-art optics coupled with modern illumination can bring to bear.
120620 Scope Features:
MST (Motion Sensor Technology)
An important feature of select Illuminated reticle models is the Leupold-exclusive Motion Sensor Technology (MST). A single touch of the button or twist of the dial activates the illumination, offering several different intensity settings (depending on model) including a high/low indicator (FireDot reticles only).
The 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 (powered by a readily available CR-2032 coin cell battery).
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-6HD.
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-R 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. DiamondCoathas made a difference in battle; now it can make a difference where you hunt.
2nd Generation Argon/Krypton Waterproofing
Select models like the VX-R 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 offer absolute repeatability and dependability over a lifetime of extreme use.
