Leupold VX-5HD overview

  • 1Description

Leupold takes low-light optical performance to a new level with its 3-15x44 VX-5HD CDS-ZL2 Side Focus Riflescope by combining High Definition (HD) optical glass, a Twilight Max Light management System, and an extra-wide 56mm 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 a scratch-resistnat Guard-Ion Rain Shedding Coatings that repel water droplets, dirt, and oil. To improve aiming accuracy, the 2nd image plane contains a Wind-Plex Reticle. The reticle's pattern features four bold posts and a crosshair with horizontal wind compensation bars. 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.

    Leupold VX-5HD reviews

    3-15x44 VX-5HD CDS-ZL2 Side Focus Riflescope (Wind-Plex Reticle, Matte Black) is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive, light weight optic After an exhaustive search, I chose this optic to top out my DD5V1. I got the fire dot reticle (model 172368) and couldn't be happier. At 3X it works well enough to be used as a red dot. Typical Leupold quality and clarity. One of the main deciding factors with this optic was it's light weight. Can't wait to get some load data and get my CDS dials. Don't be confused by the four star review as I rarely give anything five stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the VX5HD I bought one vx5hd and put it on my Winchester model 70 264 Winchester mag and I love it so much I have 2 more ordered!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome scope! Shopped around for a scope that would get me to 1000 yards. I was blown away by the clearity of the glass. Also tracks perfectly , which is most critical thing in long range shooting.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice scope let down by poor quality control. I do like this scope, but the finish on my example was marked out of the sealed box, and the CDS elevation turret doesn't align properly with the stationary mark on the saddle. I guess I might just have to loosen off the turret and re-align, but I think being able to misalign the turret on a scope of this value, shows poor manufacturing design. Regarding the marks on the finish, someone in final quality control needs some retraining!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Glass, Reticle and Design BUT.......... Purchased this scope and very impressed at what I saw and handled. Mounted it on my FTW 6.5 creedmoor. Got out to the range and both supplied hex tools DID NOT FIT THE HEX SCREWS ON ELEVATION DIAL. 20 and 15.????. Checked all my sets. None fit. Happen to check a hammer spur extention hex tool. IT FIT. Metric? What a hassle and wasted range trip. Nice scope bad QC?
