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.
