Leupold VX-5HD overview

  • 1Description

Leupold takes low-light optical performance to a new level with its 2-10x42 VX-5HD CDS-ZL2 Riflescope by combining High Definition (HD) optical glass, a Twilight Max Light management System, and a wide 42mm objective aperture. While the Twilight Max coatings allow more of blue and red light to balance colors and improve contrast in low-light conditions, the High Definition (HD) optical glass reduces color distortions and maintains true color in generated images. The exterior optical surfaces are also treated with scratch-resistant Guard-Ion Rain Shedding Coatings that repel water droplets and dirt and protect against oil stains, such as found in fingerprints. To transform aiming, the 2nd image plane contains an illuminated FireDot Duplex Reticle. The reticle's pattern features four tapered posts, thin crosshair, and a brilliant red target dot. The illumination system provides adjustable brightness and a motion-activated on/off control – the Motion Control Sensor Technology (MTS). This function deactivates illumination after 5 minutes of stillness and reactivates it when you move your gear again. Another highlight is the included Custom Dial System ZeroLock 2 Elevation Dial (CDS-ZL2), which enables a slip-free, lockable elevation settings that prevent accidental rotation away from zero. The dial features a pinch release button on the top and a 38 MOA adjustment with 1/4 MOA click values.

To protect delicate alignment of the optical elements for years of service, the housing is crafted from 6061-T6 aluminum and features a single-piece 30mm maintube. It is waterproof, fogproof, and filled with argon/krypton mixture to reduce the effect of thermal shock. Its opto-mechanics also provide a twin bias erector system to increase holding force and to reduce backlash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best buy in this class of scopes. Have been a Leupold customer for over 40 years. GREAT glass, very clear and sharp and superb dusk/dawn performance. Ballistic firedot is superb. Adjustsments are right on and Leupold has always had the best eye box performance for me. Fantastic scope and Leupold provides the best warranty service in the industry!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clarity and very easy to use Bought it 2 months ago, sighted it and on my 2nd outing was hitting steal 12" at 700 yards with a 16" barrel AR. The illuminated dot is easy to turn on and off, was handy in low low light hunting situations.
