Leupold 66815 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 FX-3 riflescopes offer a spectacular feature-set; an Xtended Twilight lens system with DiamondCoat 2 coatings, blackened lens edges, second generation waterproofing, and cryogenically treated precision adjustments. Additionally, every FX-3 scope is embellished with a special 24k gold-plated ring and medallion.

Twilight shooters who like their FOV wide and bright should check out Leupold's FX-3 6x42 riflescope - its simplified configuration combines 6x magnification with a 42mm objective to deliver an outstanding and visually stunning sight picture.

This FX-3 scope is configured with a 1.0" main-tube, 1/4 MOA adjustments with 64 MOA of travel, and adjustable objective for parallax correction, a 1/2 MOA Target Dot reticle, and a matte black finish.

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" low-profile main-tube
Precision Adjustments
Cryogenically treated 1/4 MOA W&E correction with resettable pointer dials
Target Turrets
Tall knobs with threaded covers provide 55 MOA of audible and tactile adjustment
DiamondCoat 2 Technology
Proprietary coatings on exterior lens surfaces provides superior abrasion resistance while increasing light transmission
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.
Wide Duplex Reticle in the Second Focal Plane
The Wide Duplex reticle features four medium weight posts with intersecting cross hairs for precise shot placement. The tapered posts ensure that your eye is quickly diverted to the center of the sight picture and stand out against dense cover and confusing backgrounds. What makes the Wide Duplex different from the standard Duplex reticle is the larger center gate area. The shorter posts offer a less obstructed field of view for rapid target acquisition.
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.

    6x42 FX-3 Riflescope (Matte Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faultless fixed power scope I had a fixed power 6x42 scope on an old work horse in .243 for an awful long time. The rifle and scope have been very much subjected to years of use and abuse. I wouldn't like to guess how many rounds have been put through this rifle and scope, but never has the rifle lost zero!! (Even though my friend now owns this set up.) At the time the scope was relatively cheap and I didn't know what to really expect. I can honestly say it was outstanding value for money and if the other Leupold products are as good or even better then they are a force to be reckoned with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 6x scope out there! I have had a 6x42mm Leupold on my Ruger 1B in 6mm Remington for years. It is a very clear rugged scope that has never failed me. I also have a 6x36mm Leupold on a Remington 700 25-06 and a 4x33mm Leupold on a Ruger 1B in 30-06. Each of these scopes is fantastic and were very sound purchases. Leupold simply makes a high quality product her in the USA and their warranty is the best out there! Keep up the good work.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent scope for mountains I have this scope with LR raticle on my Tikka T3 30-06. I found it extremely well build with very high optical quality. It took only one hunt for me to realize that fixed 6 power magnification is only one choose if you want to be fast and accurate. No more variable magnification scopes on my rifles! I have exactly same picture when hunting as I have when I zeroed my scope and rifle. It means I can trust my LR raticle when I'm aiming, and I can do it in seconds. All I need a target and cartridge in a chamber, then I look through the scope and immediately know what dot to use according to distance. The scope was in very harsh weather conditions last fall and winter. Holding zero with no problem. Nice and clear in twilight! Way better than any variable magnification scopes, and I have lots of them. Highly recommend this scope to anyone. Some basic education in optics will help to understand why 6x power and LR raticle is an absolute the best combination for most hunting situations

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Target Aquisition I've been using my FX3 6x42 for 3 years now. I still hunt whitetail in northern Alberta in November where temperatures can be in the - 35 to -40 celcius range while hunting. This scope has never let me down. I have never had to reset it from the day I mounted it on my Remington Mod. 7 in .308. The scope has great light gathering characteristics, excellent eye relief, and, like all Leupold scopes, is light weight to boot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Scope! I bought my Leupold 6 powered scope over 20 years ago. It’s never failed me. It’s truly amazing for low light situations. I’ve taken a number of animals at over 250 yards with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mine is a M8 6x42mm riflescope I have had this rifle scope for many years and on several rifles which have come and gone, but this scope will never intentionally leave my possession. There are no better on todays market.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bright and Clear This scope is perfect for almost every big game scenario you can think of. I would have rated it 5/5 except for a 0.070" tool mark in the finish on the bell. That being said I cannot recommend any other optics manufacturer. Great product.
