Leupold 66090 overview

  • 1Description

Leupold keeps their successful tradition of delivering state-of-the-art sport optics alive with their persistent attention to detail, precision and quality - they pioneered the process of waterproofing optics via nitrogen purging in 1947. Since then and to this day, Leupold continues to push the envelope while producing some of the world's finest sport optics and accessories.

Leupold's VX-3 riflescopes offer a world-class set of features: an Xtended Twilight lens system with DiamondCoat 2 coatings, blackened lens edges, second generation waterproofing, a dual spring erector system, and cryogenically treated precision adjustments. Additionally, every VX-3 sports a special 24k gold-plated ring and medallion.

The 3.5-10x40 VX-3 Riflescope is an extremely viable option for anyone who would normally consider a 3-9x40 their go-to optic. While this sighting solution adds just a bit more power to the equation - it's important to remember that hunting, like baseball, can become a game of inches. This scope brings a little more to the table so you can - ahem...bring home the bacon.

Sporting a water and fogproof 1.0" main-tube, this VX-3 delivers Leupold's all-weather reliability and a respectable range of precision adjustments. Its unobtrusive 40mm objective keeps a trim profile while delivering impressive twilight performance.

To use a riflescope with your firearm, you'll need a mounting base and mounting rings in addition to the scope itself. Bases attach to your firearm and the rings attach your scope to the base. Proper spacing of the rings, as well as the ring height should be considered to ensure a proper line of sight can be established. This will maximize the value of your investment, and enhance your shooting experience. It should be noted that in many mounting applications, a professional gunsmith's skills will be needed for proper installation.

1.0" Main-Tube
Traditional lightweight 1.0" main-tube keeps a low-profile
Precision Adjustments
Cryogenically treated 1/4 MOA windage and elevation correction with resettable pointer dials
Tactile Power Indicator
Integral range estimation function with graphite O-rings for smooth operation
DiamondCoat 2 Technology
Proprietary coatings on exterior lens surfaces provide superior abrasion resistance while increasing light transmission
Dual Spring Erector System
This dual spring configuration exerts up to 30% more force upon the erector assembly to virtually eliminate backlash and stress on the internal mechanical mechanism. The result is enhanced tracking & repeatability as well as a greater lifespan for all of the internal moving parts of your scope.
Extreme Fast Focus Eyepiece
Locking rapid-focus ocular with internal threads - with Alumina eyepiece guard
Xtended Twilight (XT) Lens System
Wavelength-specific multicoatings and blackened lens edges optimize light transmission for enhanced definition and luminance during twilight
Second Generation Waterproofing
Leupold's proprietary blend of argon & krypton gasses delivers greater resistance to thermal shock than standard nitrogen purging. This technology offers a longer-term water and fogproofing solution as these gasses exhibit a lower incidence of diffusion for a lifetime of crystal clear viewing under all conditions.
Duplex&bdsp;Reticle in the Second Focal Plane
Leupold's original&bdsp;Duplex reticle features tapered posts that stand out against heavy cover and dense brush while pulling your eye directly to the center of your sight picture. Fine cross hairs intersect to form an unobstructed view of your target. This reticle delivers a tremendous advantage during twilight, and is a favored choice amongst shooters for its ability to isolate your point of aim under difficult lighting conditions.
This reticle is positioned in the rear or second focal plane; it does not change dimensions when the scope's magnification is dialed up or down.
