Leupold VX-3i overview

  • 1Description

Handle your short to long distance shooting optic needs with the matte black Leupold VX-3i 4.5-14x50mm CDS Riflescope, featuring a 30mm maintube with their Custom Dial System and Wind-Plex reticle. At the heart of th CDS is a customizable Bullet Drop Compensation elevation dial; just send your information to Leupold and you'll receive a dial that's custom-tailored to your individual loads. A 30mm maintube increases windage and elevation travel while the side focus adjustment makes fine-tuning parallax simple. The Twilight Max Light Management System balances light wavelengths to give you the best possible sight picture even in the low-light conditions of dawn and dusk. To further improve contrast and reduce stray light, the eco-friendly, lead-free optical elements have their edges blackened.

This scope offers 113 MOA of windage and elevation adjustment with a 1/4 MOA per click impact point correction to help compensate for wind drift and ballistic bullet drop. The Wind-Plex reticle has a series of hashes on the horizontal axis to compensate for wind deflection. It is located on the second focal plane, so it is unaffected by magnification.

The easy turn power selector makes changing magnification simple, even with gloves on. The 6061-T6 aluminum housing is lightweight and durable, waterproof, fogproof, and features a twin bias spring erector system that helps increase holding force. To prevent fogging-up of optics when you are moving through environments with changing temperatures, the housing is filled with a mixture of krypton and argon gases. The rugged design is bolstered by the use of DiamondCoat 2 protective lens coatings.

Custom Dial System (CDS)
  • Allows the buyer to contact Leupold and receive one custom BDC (Bullet Drop Compensation) dial free of charge. Leupold will build a custom turret dial based on the ballistic information of the cartridge that the buyer intends to use with their firearm. The scope ships with completely functional stock turrets. The custom turret may be added later, if desired.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything is solid with the set up in the VXIII- 4.5x14x50mm CDS SF - If you have any questions - go look at a unit in person/talk to a Leupold rep, you wont be disappointed. Field and battle tested approved - as with every Leupold product I have.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top shelf I bought the VX3i 4.5-14x50mm earlier this fall and absolutely love the performance I'm getting out of it. It was an upgrade on a 35+ year old Leupold 3x9, and as good as that scope has performed over the years (and continues to perform), this new scope is simply incredible. I passed up an opening morning, low light shot at a world class Saskatchewan whitetail last year, which I was able to film and subsequently learned of my error. It was the first hour on the first day of a six day hunt, and I couldn't get a good look at his right side, to know if it was broken up, so I passed on the shot. This upgraded scope changed the game for me, since my eyes aren't what they used to be. I returned on that hunt this year, and the picture below is the same deer, where you can see he declined from last year, but it was a repeat; he showed up 10 minutes into the first morning for a ground check. Very, very happy with this scope.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scope I own I bought this scope to mount a top my howa 300 win mag. Deadly combo, great eye relief, ease of use, custom turret, and great low light visibility. This American made product makes you pride of USA.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product I purchased my Vx 3i scope off of eBay, this is the best rifle scope I have ever looked through, I called custom shop multiple times with simple questions and they answered them every time in great detail, LEUPOLD HAS THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE ON THE MARKET. I needed help setting up my custom dials, and I called them after hours and they answered and walked my through the simple steps, no doubt the best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from legend, clear, good looking, adds value Have one, best for varmint shooting, (In fact any shooting.), clear allows shooting as it gets darker, once adjusted it is fixed nothing moves. Optics are very clear. This is a legend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior light transmission I purchased this scope earlier this year primarily for the CDS feature. After shooting with it, I have to say I am most impressed with the brightness and clarity of the scope.
