Introducing Updated VX-1 and VX-2 Leupold Riflescopes

Leupold scopesLeupold has introduced two new additions to its VX-1 and VX-2 lines.

The VX-1 features a new optical system with lead-free, precision ground and polished lenses coated with Leupold's Multicoat4 lens coatings for resolution, clarity, and contrast that provides a light transmission of over 90 percent -- enough clarity in all lighting and weather conditions.

The VX-1 also features an improved mechanical function over older models with finger-adjustable 1/4 MOA click windage and elevation adjustments. Also included is a new tactile indicator on the power selector ring, allowing for better grip.

In addition to mossy oak finishes, the VX-1 also includes long-range duplex rectiles with a lockable fast focus eyepiece design. Measuring 12.6 inches and weighing 11.2 ounces, the scope has an actual magnification of 3.2-8.8.

At 12.3 inches and 13.3 ounces, the 3-9x50mm features a large 50mm objective lens for enhanced light transmission up to 94 percent in ideal conditions.

Updated design features on the VX-2 include an oen-turn, externally threaded, fast focus eyepiece with an actual magnification of 3.2-8.8.

A finger adjustable 1/4 MOA click windage and elevation allows easy zeroing without the aid of coins or tools. Select models are also available with custom dial system (CDS) elevation dials for long-range accuracy.

The scope's new maintube includes an updated power selector design, which includes an easily legible tactile power indicator.

The magnifications range from 1-4x20mm to 4-12x40mm in the VX-1 line, and 2-7x28mm to 6-18x40mm in the VX-2 line. Check back the pages of Guns & Ammo magazine for a full review of these new scopes.
