When shooting experts say you should put premium glass on top of your rifle to get the ultimate performance, they were referring to the Leupold VX-3 rifle scopes. Whether you are hunting whitetail from a treestand, or stalking sheep in rugged mountain terrain, the VX 3 is loaded with optical technology. From Leupold’s Xtended Twilight Lens System, DiamondCoat 2 lens coating, blackened lens edges, second generation waterproofing, twin bias spring erector system, and cryogenically treated adjustments, it's all there to help you make the shot of a lifetime.
Leupold VX-3 rifle scopes are designed, machined and assembled in America. Each comes with a Golden Ring Lifetime Guarantee, which means if for any reason it fails to do what it's supposed to do, Leupold will either fix, or replace it. Made of rock-solid 6061 T6 Aluminum, the VX 3 line showcases Leupold’s ability as one of the leading optics manufacturers in the world.
The exterior lens surfaces of the VX 3 scopes are treated with Leupold’s DiamondCoat 2, an ion-assist lens coating, for higher light transmission and the greatest level of abrasion resistance ever offered. DiamondCoat 2 offers unsurpassed durability and will prove its worth in the wildest places on earth. DiamondCoat 2 has the additional advantage of assisting in light transmission, for greater brightness, clarity and contrast. The VX 3 scopes also have second-generation Argon/Krypton waterproofing. It eliminates the effects of thermal shock, and the Argon/Krypton molecules are significantly larger than nitrogen molecules, reducing the diffusion of gases sealed inside the scope even more than proven nitrogen technology already does.
Stretch the limits of shooting light with Leupold’s exclusive Xtended Twilight Lens System, using Leupold’s index matched glass with wavelength specific lens coatings designed to optimize the transmission of low-light wavelengths. When most scope manufacturers quote percentage of light transmission, they usually mean at 550 nm, the green wavelength where the human eye is most sensitive. The challenge is that in twilight conditions, green light disappears and blue/violet light takes over. The Xtended Twilight Lens System places extra emphasis on matching coatings to glass indices to achieve the best possible transmission of the blue/violet spectrum, without sacrificing the color balanced light transmission across the visual spectrum.
Leupold CDS-equipped VX 3 models allow you to quickly dial your elevation to different sight-in ranges with a custom adjustment matched to your specific ballistics information. The CDS dials change out easily, allowing you flexibility with different loads, conditions and calibers. Every CDS dial features ¼-MOA click increment finger adjustments and no adjustment covers to lose, making the VX 3 even more accurate and rugged. The CDS System works by laser-inscribing your scope's elevation dial to match your load, velocity and conditions. Your Leupold VX-3 rifle scope will be in perfect synch with the way your rifle and load shoots, even for hand loads.
