Leupold CDS-ZL2 overview

  • 1Description

Leopold's 2-12x42 VX-6HD CDS-ZL2 Riflescope is a new iteration that carries over old reliability and performance but features upgrades such as: High-Definition (HD) optics, their proprietary Twilight Max Light Management System, and upgraded CDS-ZL2(CDS Zero Lock 2) windage and elevation dials. While the High-Definition (HD) optics ensure high-contrast and true color images, the revolutionary Twilight Max Light Management System features improved transmission throughout the entire visible spectrum — empathizing reds and blues at the spectral edges, while also providing shooters with an ability to see deep into the shadows of twilight. Another major improvement is the Guard-Ion hydrophobic optical coating, which helps prevent finger stains and repels water droplets, dust, and dirt from optical surfaces. To improve contrast even further, while also reducing stray light, the eco-friendly lead-free optical elements have their edges blackened. DiamondCoat 2 protective coatings on all external surfaces protect the optics from scratches.

Another highlight of this optic is its illuminated 2nd focal plane modified duplex FireDot Bullet-Drop reticle, which is designed with a 200 yard zero and calibrated holdovers for 300, 400, and 500 yards. This reticle has four tapered posts, thin crosshair with two holdover dots, and a brilliant red target dot that is visible in daytime. The reticle also offers a canting indicator that flashes when your firearm is misaligned.

To match the impeccable quality of the optics, the housing is crafted from an ultra-durable and lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum alloy that features a 30mm maintube. It is filled with an argon-krypton gas mixture to ensure a waterproof and fogproof performance, and also offers a lockable eyepiece. The featured CDS-ZL2 (Zero Lock 2) finger-operated turrets are engineered to provide twice the travel, faster adjustments, and accurate returns to zero.
