Leupold FX-3 12x40 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.

Any shooting enthusiast who can appreciate the refined simplicity of a fixed power scope should consider the FX-3 12x40. Its traditional 'form follows function' configuration allows the mind to focus on the target instead of 'bells and whistles'. Visually, this optic strikes an impressive, yet balanced, profile upon the receiver. Tall target turrets grace the saddle, making W&E corrections easier to deal with and visualize. A moderate magnification of 12x is combined with a 40mm objective to ensure a bright sight picture and comfortable sighting.

This FX-3 scope is configured with a 1.0" main-tube, 1/4 MOA adjustments with 71 MOA of travel, an adjustable objective for parallax correction, a Fine Duplex 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" main-tube keeps a low-profile
Precision Adjustments
Cryogenically treated 1/4 MOA W&E correction with resettable pointer dials
Target Turrets
Tall knobs provide tactile, audible, and visual confirmation of W&E correction
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.
Fine Duplex Reticle in the Second Focal Plane
The Fine Duplex reticle simplifies precision shots on smaller targets. The thinner tapered posts obscure less of your line of sight - a definite advantage for varminters and competitive shooting events
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.
