Leupold VX-1 overview

  • 1Description

Leupold's 4-12x40 VX-1 Riflescope provides you with short-to-medium range shooting capabilities and features a LR Duplex Reticle with Leupold's proprietary Multicoat 4 to reduce reflections and maximize transmission of light. To help you compensate for wind drift and ballistic drops, the scope offers 67 MOA windage and elevation adjustment ranges with a 1/4 MOA impact point correction. The LR Duplex reticle is defined by four tapered posts, a thin crosshair, a wide gate, and holdover markings for long range target acquisitions. It offers a center that is zeroed at 200 yards and holdover marks for 300, 400, and 500 yards.

Decorated with a 24k gold-plated ring and a medallion, the aluminum housing is lightweight, durable, waterproof, and fogproof. It offers a 1" maintube, a lockable eyepiece with a low-profile lever for fast zooming action, and capped windage and elevation turrets. Also included is a protective lens cover.

    Leupold VX-1 reviews

    4-12x40 VX-1 Riflescope (LR Duplex Reticle, Matte Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for hunting. I have used this scope to shoot well out to 750 yards and Im sure if I could hit a target at 1000 the scope would do it. I have the LR reticle and it is very fast and useful, I found if I needed to be very accurate with the drop I could adjust the magnification to near perfectly aline the bullet impact and hold over point. Although they are good enough for hunting on full magnification (an inch or so out). I tracked the adjustments of this scope and it was bang on. I once hunted in the early moonlight of a full moon with this scope thinking the sun was still setting, so good light transmission. I have also bought a VX6 4-24 and there is a vast improvement on the glass but that is to be expected right ;)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from clear optics, annoying focus features I have two Leupold scopes, an rifleman and a VX-1, both of which have the same annoying problem. The power adjustment ring is extremely hard to turn, almost impossible in cold weather with gloves on. I sent the rifleman back for adjustment and it was returned with the same condition. I have not done anything yet about the VX-1 as it is a great amount of trouble to remove, ship, remount, sight in again, etc. Whatever the reason, Leupold apparently thinks this is how their scopes should function. I own a Redfield and Bushnell and they are much easier to rotate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent clarity. I've had this particular scope for awhile on my Ruger 77 204 Ruger and the clarity is excellent. People tell me that the cheaper scopes that are made in Asia are just as clear. Hogwash! This Leupold is second to none when it comes to quality & the warranty is outstanding. If you are looking for a nice quality scope for a very good price I highly recommend the Leupold line of products. The old adage is true you get exactly what you pay for!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long standing well made product Leupold has been around for many years and in this day and age you need a product that is well made,dependable and durable,the only issue I have had with my scope was the anodized finish was coming off I sent it back to the Australian distributor and am waiting for a repair or replacement,other than that it has been a great scope would recommend to others

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I purchased this scope about a month ago to put on top of a Tikka T3x in 25-06. So far I really like the clarity. I went to the range at first light and the scope is much clearer and brighter than other brands I shoot. It also adjusts easily and in the correct increments.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from rugged I was in my tree stand pulling up my rifle when my rope broke. My rifle hit the ground from at least six feet. I thought my zero must be knocked off so I shot as soon as I could get home. My rifle shot just as it had before. Great product keep it up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leupold for life! My first ever scope, now 10 years old & still as clear as day 1. My new rifle will only have one brand on top ... Leopold for life!
