Leupold VX-1 Overview
Decorated with a 24k gold-plated ring and a medallion, the matte black VX-1 3-9x40 Riflescope from Leupold is designed for short-to-medium-range shooting. The optical system features 3.2-8.8x actual magnification, Mulitcoat 4 multiple anti-glare coatings that reduce glare and enhance transmission, and a linear field of view range of 34.6-14.6' at 100 yd. To help you compensate for wind drift and ballistic bullet drop, the scope offers a 52 MOA windage and elevation adjustment range with a 1/4 MOA impact point correction.
The Duplex Reticle is defined by heavy posts and a thin crosshair that are visible well on any background or in twilight. Because of its location in the second focal plane, the reticle will remain the same in size as you change zoom factor.
The 6061-T6 aluminum housing is lightweight and durable, waterproof, and nitrogen-filled fogproof. It is compatible with 1" riflescope mounting rings. Another highlight is a lockable fast-focus eyepiece with a low profile tactile zoom lever that help you with an instant one-finger zoom adjustment.
