Leupold VX-R overview

  • 1Description

Made in the USA and decorated with a 24k gold-plated ring and a medallion, the matte black 4-12x50 VX-R Riflescope from Leupold is designed for distance shooting and features an illuminated FireDot Duplex reticle. With a wide 50mm objective lens, your riflescope will enable you to obtain improved visibility and image brightness in low light situations and get the most out of dusk and dawn missions. The optical system offers index-matched multiple anti-glare coatings that reduce reflections and maximize light transmission. In order to improve contrast and reduce stray light, the environmentally friendly lead-free optical elements have their edges blackened. The DiamondCoat protective coatings on external elements protect lenses from scratches and further improve transmission to 94%. To help you compensate for wind drift and ballistic bullet drop, the scope offers a 75 MOA windage and elevation adjustment range with a 1/4 MOA impact point correction.

Located in the second focal plane, the Duplex reticle is defined by heavy posts that are visible well on any background or in twilight and a thin crosshair. Because of its location in the second focal plane, the reticle will remain the same in size as you change zoom factor.

The 6061-T6 aluminum housing is lightweight and durable, waterproof, fogproof, and features a twin bias spring erector system that increases holding force by 30%. To prevent fogging-up of optics when you are moving through environments with changing temperatures, the housing is filled with a mixture of argon and krypton gases. Also included with the riflescope are a CR2032 battery and an Allen wrench.

    Leupold VX-R reviews

    4-12x50 VX-R Riflescope (Illuminated FireDot Duplex) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect scope for low light condition hunting I have the VX-R 4-12x50 fire dot 4, which has the typically German #4 sight but even more perfect with the red dot. Scope works perfect even in low light condition. For Europe just perfect with the 1cm / click system (USA with 1/4moa click e.g.). In combination with my Remington700 is a perfect scope. I’m using it for roe deer, Red deer, wild boar and fox hunting. To fair price I get a very good scope – just perfect quality. For a European scope with the well nown brands liks Sw..., Lei..., Ze... you wold pay for the same a 500 bucks more. Franz Schmid, Switzerland

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great except one crucial part Excellent scope and fantastic value for money. Leupold do such a great job and are my go-to optic for a new rifle or for recommendation. The vxr models are terrific with excellent light transmission, ruggedness and reliability. I only have one complaint, which has been a thorn in my side with this model for me and for a few people I know. Leupold, you dropped the ball when you put a rubber eyepiece on these scopes. It's so effing stupid it's not funny. It takes second to come off when you're out trekking and never goes back on quite right.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clearest scope and let's in incredible light I bought this last season for my .270. Dialed it in with 4 shots at 200 yards. Haven't made a click of adjustment since. Perfect for early and late shooting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Scope I recently purchased this scope and I'm absolutely in love with it. I got caught up in the hipe in the past and bought a scope that cost three times as much as this one, however shooting them side by side I much rather shoot the Leupold and I haven't even received my CDS turret yet. I'm sure after this is added it will further surpass the other scope. I would love the chance to recoup my money from the previous purchase and buy thee Leupold scopes in its place. For shooting 800 yards witch is the very furthest I've ever shot you cannot compete with this scope anywhere close to the same price range. I love the product you offer, that it's made in America, lifetime warranty, and the people you have in place to deal with an average shooter like myself. Forever a fan, forever a customer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scope for mixed range hunting After allot of research and talking to other shooters I decided to buy this scope with the ballistic fire dot reticle. When you combine the firedot, ballistic reticle, CDS ability and a 50mm objective you come out with a scope that is able to cope with low light, long and short ranges, fast target acquisition, and most importantly a clear image! The advantage of a lifetime warranty and the ability to send your scope in for any changes you wish to make are fantastic!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from reticles identity crisis.. ... no idea why leupold does not combine the wind plex, and the firedot lrv reticles together in the vx-r series... you would then have one reticle that does it all.. or better yet sell the illum. varmint reticle in the whole series above 3 x as standard.. it doesnt make any sense to purchase a scope like this and not get the most out of it..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic scope This scope tracks ,holds zero, takes in good light late in the afternoon, the fiber optic illumination is a great feature ,it looks good and the best feature I like about it is the new argon/krypton gas set up that eliminates thermal shock , sounds high tech,all I know is it works, great scope and American company

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from VX-R is one of the best so far!!! Have been happy with Leupold since the 80s, and I think that is about all that needs to be said.
