Leupold 171576 Overview

  • 1Description

Leopold's 3-18x50 VX-6HD CDS-ZL2 Side Focus Riflescope is a new iteration that carries over old reliability and performance but features upgrades like High-Definition (HD) optics, the Twilight Max Light Management System, and fast CDS-ZL2 (CDS ZeroLock 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 edges of the spectrum, providing shooters with the ability to see deep into the shadows of twilight. Another major improvement is the Guard-Ion hydrophobic optical coating that prevents finger stains and repels water droplets, dust, and dirt from the optical surfaces. To improve contrast even further and to reduce stray light, the environmentally 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 2nd focal plane T-MOA illuminated reticle. The reticle features ultra-fine features and a brilliant red crosshair with MOA-based compensation dots on the crosshair. This reticle also offers a canting indicator that flashes when your firearm is misaligned. To help you compensate for wind drift and ballistic bullet drop, the scope has 75 MOA windage and elevation adjustment ranges with a 1/4 MOA impact point correction.

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

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best hunting optic on the market Former European optic owner, until i compared mine with my hunting buddies VX-6HD. Sold the Sworo the next week and got the VX-6HD. The optical quality of this scope is amazing. The zero lock dials are repeatable. Highly recommended.
