Leupold 170885 overview

  • 1Description

Leupold designed the matte black 6.5-20x40 VX-3i AO Riflescope for twilight hunting and outfitted it to withstand the toughest of conditions and to carry out the most demanding tasks. The optical system was engineered to provide superior performance and features Leupold's proprietary Twilight Max Management System of coatings for improved image brightness, contrast, and true color in challenging light conditions such as dusk or dawn, making target recognition easier on dark, shadowy backgrounds. The external lens surfaces were treated with the ion-assisted DiamondCoat process that increases hardness and durability for protection against debris and abrasion. With all lens edges blackened, the optics will stop stray light to reduce glare and to improve image detail and contrast.

At the core of this riflescope is the second plane Fine Duplex Reticle. It features four fine tapered posts and a fine crosshair. The reticle provides clean and unobtrusive views of your targets, and offers parallax-free aiming from 50 yards to infinity.

Complementing the advanced optical system, this riflescope also features a solid and precise opto-mechanical construction. The housing is made from 6061-T6 aluminum and features a 1" single-piece maintube, a proprietary gas filling for a waterproof and fogproof performance, an easy-to-turn lockable eyepiece, and Custom Dial System (CDS) target turrets and other adjustment rings. Also noteworthy is the twin bias spring erector system that provides more holding force to withstand recoil. To protect the optics during transport, this optic includes a neoprene scope cover.

    6.5-20x40 VX-3i AO Riflescope (Fine Duplex, CDS, Matte Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Custom Dial System I recently sent an older 6.5 - 20X 40mm scope in to your custom shop to have the elevation dial custom made. Using the ballistics for my 25-06 your folks (team) retuned a new scope with custom dials ( the old scope had internal damage). I have to say that I was looking forward to giving the scope system a good workout but had not expected the quality of performance that I received.......... IT WAS TOTALLY AMAZING!!!!!!!! After the sight-in I simply ranged a target adjusted the dial and proceeded to hit targets at odd ranges from 175 to 675 yards. Everything worked better than advertised. Thank You All for the great work, I just got my hands on the Mark 4 8.5-25x 50mm ER/T with the custom dial system and look forward to similar results. Thanks again,

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 22lr scope ever! I got the Leupold Vxi-3 6.5-20x40mm efr cds target scope with the fine duplex reticle. I mounted it on a bolt 22lr. Me and my friend like to have competitions shooting at targets under 50 yards. This scope definitely gives me the winning edge. You can see clear as day on 20 power close up. I also use it on grouse taking head shoots so I don't ruin any meat. Any one looking for a good close range scope I cant say enough about the efr. Also works just as well at long ranges. I highly recommend them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scope i've owned so far! Just upgraded from a Bushnell Elite 3500 3-9x40 which was more of a hunting scope, this new VX3i is beautifully manufactured and so versatile, does everything I need for my Lithgow Arms Crossover in 22lr from varminting to targets, couldn't be more impressed and happier especially for the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you have an "adult" air rifle this is THE scope I have the VX-3 version of this scope mounted on a Beeman R1 in .20 cal. Perfect combination, best medicine for squirrels. Dime size groups at 30 yds. This scope can handle the bi-directional recoil. I've had this scope for over 20 years and have put several thousand shots on it and have never had any issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 / 10 I purchased this optic to sit on top of a Steyr rifle bolt action rifle in 270win for hunting. Clarity and functionality are absolutely top notch. I've been able to shoot sub moa groups at 100 and 200 yards with this scope on. Can't go wrong! This scope has everything and in a thoughtful way, from the ocular lens focus, to the front parralax adjustment, to the turrets. I'm very happy with this scope and would certainly recommend it to anyone!
