Leupold® Introduces 4-24x52mm Model into VX®-6 Line

BEAVERTON, OR. – Leupold® has expanded its premier VX®-6 line with the introduction of the 4-24x52mm side focus riflescope.

Combining Leupold’s legendary durability and crystal-clear optics with the VX-6′s powerful 6:1 zoom ratio, the 4-24x52mm models offer shooters the versatility of 4x to 24x magnification in one riflescope. Compared to standard riflescopes, the VX-6 provides a wider field of view at the lowest power setting, giving hunters a better look at close, fast-moving game. At the highest power setting, the scope pulls distant targets in tighter for more precise shot placement.

“With the 6:1 zoom ratio of the VX-6 erector assembly, we’re able to deliver far more range and utility than ever before,” said Pat Mundy, communications manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “There is simply no distance from 100 to over 1,000 yards that the VX-6 4-24 can’t handle.”

Two illuminated reticle options are available: the Boone and Crockett® Big Game reticle or the Varmint Hunter. They feature Finger Adjustable, Pop-up resettable, 1/4 MOA per click adjustments and an integrated push button illumination and side focus parallax dial. Both are compatible with Leupold’s Custom Dial System® (CDS®). With CDS, hunters can get on target at any range, with any load, by matching their scope to the ballistics of their ammunition and sight-in conditions. Each scope comes with one free CDS dial.

The non-illuminated model offers the all new TMOA® reticle, which features tic marks in 1 MOA increments on the vertical and horizontal crosshairs allowing for range estimation and accurate wind drift and bullet drop compensation in the familiar minute-of-angle measurements. Also new are the VX-6 Target Adjustments with resettable zero and an elevation zero stop.

All VX-6 4-24x52mm riflescopes feature side focus parallax adjustment and a 34mm matte black maintube. Leupold’s Quantum Optical Systemtm combines lead-free, precision-ground and edge blackened lenses with Leupold’s Xtended Twilight® lens coatings for the highest level of light transmission and clarity. Carefully positioned in optimum relationship to each other, the lenses deliver up to 98 percent total light transmission. Exterior lens surfaces are coated with DiamondCoat 2® for unsurpassed resistance to scratching and abrasion.

In addition, VX-6 has a generous eyebox and long eye relief, making it quick and easy for hunters to get their eye behind the riflescope and attain a full, clear sight picture. Compared to competitive riflescopes, the VX-6′s eyebox is up to 137 percent larger at the high power ranges, and up to 67 percent larger at the low power ranges.

Other key features:
• Leupold’s most durable Twin Bias Spring Erector System™ provides the utmost in mechanical reliability. It is built with up to 30 percent more holding force than competitive riflescopes to withstand the most intense recoil and abuse.
• Second generation Argon/Krypton waterproofing and fog proofing for enhanced thermal shock resistance.

Sporting Leupold’s familiar Golden Ring®, each VX-6 is backed by the company’s Full Lifetime Guarantee. For more information, visit a local dealer, go to www.leupold.com or call 1-800-LEUPOLD. Find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/LeupoldOptics.

Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice One of Many Awards for Leupold® Products

 

BEAVERTON, OR. – Leupold & Stevens, Inc., is pleased to announce that the VX®-6 riflescope has been selected as the Editor’s Choice by the staff of Outdoor Life magazine.

The premier riflescope in the Leupold® catalog, the VX-6 brings a 6X magnification range, delivering unmatched clarity and utility in a single riflescope.

Outdoor Life editor Andrew McKean wrote that the VX-6 “delivers a crisp, bright image across the power range, its controls are precise, and its illumination system is intuitive.”

Unlike many higher power scopes that deliver their best sight picture only at each end of the zoom ratio, VX-6 is engineered to deliver exceptional image quality from edge-to-edge of the visual field at any magnification.

The VX-6 offers hunters the flexibility of 3-18 power in one riflescope. Side-focus adjustment and Custom Dial System® (CDS®) compatible elevation and windage dials allow for fast and easy adjustments from any shooting position.

In addition, the editors at Binoculars.com have bestowed the Binocular of the Year title on the new BX®-4 McKinley™ HD™ binoculars.

The BX-4 mates new extra-low dispersion objective lenses with rare earth element-coated ocular lenses to provide superb color rendition, exceptional low-light visibility and superb color rendition.

Available in 8x or 10x magnification, the BX-4 features 42mm objective lenses; multi-staged, variable height eyecups; and a responsive, fast-focus central focus dial.

A strong, lightweight magnesium alloy chassis delivers unsurpassed durability and rugged utility in the field. Leupold’s second-generation water and fog proofing ensures crystal-clear vision in any weather condition.

Finally, the readers of Predator Xtreme magazine have selected Leupold as the Riflescope manufacturer of the year in its first Readers Choice Awards. Leupold also received bronze medals in the binocular and rangefinder categories.

Deal of the Day by Webyshops:LEUPOLD VX-6 2-12×42 Rifle Scope

The LEUPOLD VX-6 2-12×42 Rifle Scope, Illuminated FireDot LR Duplex Reticle, Matte Black (111980) has unique features you can imagine – legendary ruggedness, stunning optics, and a huge 6x zoom ratio that shortens the distance to your next trophy. With the VX-6 atop your favorite rifle, the advantage is all yours.

The VX-6 features a powerful 6:1 zoom ratio that is crystal clear from edge to edge – across the entire magnification range. Use the lowest power setting for a wider field of view on fast moving, close game. Use the mid-range settings to bring targets in just right without losing image quality or accuracy. Or turn to the highest power setting to pull those distant targets in tight for a closer look and more precise shot placement. You get stunning clarity, color fidelity, and razor sharp images throughout the entire eyebox and power range.

The Twin Bias Spring Erector System features beryllium/copper alloy leaf springs to withstand the most intense abuse. Built with up to 30 percent more holding force, it virtually eliminates erector system backlash and stress.

The generous eyebox of the VX-6 series makes it faster and easier to get your eye behind the riflescope and achieve a full, clear sight picture. Setting up for longer shots, you’ll appreciate the flexibility the VX-6 affords, and in close-up big game or dangerous game situations, the quick target acquisition will be the difference maker. Even at high power, the longer eye relief and more generous eyebox gives you incredible latitude and an improved sight picture that fills the eyepiece completely.

The Xtended Twilight Lens System takes all Leupold knowledge, expertise, and experience with light transmission and moves it one step closer to perfection, matching the proper balance of lens coatings with specifically engineered glass and index of refraction. The result allows you to reach deeper into twilight and low-light settings, helping you to better distinguish antlers from branches and animal hide from brush.

Exterior lens surfaces treated with Leupold exclusive DiamondCoat 2 provide the best abrasion resistance Leupold has ever offered – exceeding even military standards. DiamondCoat 2 offers unsurpassed durability while boosting light transmission for greater brightness, clarity, and contrast.

The VX-6 riflescope offers better optical clarity as a result of its meticulously cut and polished, lead-free glass lenses. In addition to its superior optics, the lenses are produced with none of the environmentally damaging by-products common to standard glass production.

Another Leupold-unique feature the blackened lens edges, which work to reduce unwanted glare and diffusion through the lens edges. By using edge blackening, stray light is absorbed rather than reflected, resulting in better resolution, improved contrast, and superior optical performance: no matter what the conditions.

This model VX-6 2-12×42 Rifle Scope comes with an Illuminated FireDot LR Duplex reticle, which will assist you with accurate, repeatable, and ethical long-range shooting. It features a Duplex central aiming point for rifles zeroed at 200 yards, and calibrated hold points for 300, 400 and 500 yards. The illuminated reticle features second generation LED technology, nearly twice as bright as previous models, with multiple intensity settings for precise shot placement in low-light situations.

The extreme fast-focus eyepiece provides for more diopter travel to accommodate a wider spectrum of visual acuity. Near-sighted, far-sighted, or anywhere in between, adjusting the focus of the VX-6 is smooth, fast, and precise. An Alumina rubber eyepiece guard is included with every scope.

Dialing in your VX-6 is easy and instantaneous with pop-up re-zeroable finger click adjustments that the user can convert to CDS adjustments. This unique system allows you to match your scope to your specific ballistics and environmental conditions (Comes with one FREE CDS dial. Additional dials available).

The VX-6 riflescope takes advantage of Leupold Second Generation waterproofing, using an exclusive Argon/Krypton gas blend. This combination of gasses resists thermal shock more effectively than ever before and reduces the diffusion of internal gases over time. Absolute waterproof integrity is guaranteed.

Deal of the Day by Webyshops: LEUPOLD VX-R 2-7×33 Rifle Scope

The LEUPOLD VX-R 2-7×33 Rifle Scope, Ballistic FireDot Reticle (111233) has a sleek, stylish look and clean lines that create less bulk atop your rifle.

The VX-R riflescope has a rugged 30mm maintube, which offers an increased range of adjustment for windage and elevation over traditional 1″ tube. Finger click adjustments for windage and elevation (1/4-MOA) offer absolute repeatability and dependability over a lifetime of extreme use.

VX-R is available with Leupold exclusive FireDot Reticle System. Once activated, the dot within the reticle illuminates with bright, sharp definition, while the rest of the reticle is non-illuminated. This combination leads your eye naturally to the center aiming point and makes target acquisition quick, precise, and simple.

This model riflescope comes with a Ballistic FireDot reticle that is designed for extended range shooting when fast target acquisition is critical. The Ballistic FireDot is ideal for varmint, antelope, and longer shots on big game. It has an extra-bright centerpoint dot.

The VX-R uses Leupold’s exclusive Motion Sensor Technology (MST). A single touch of the button activates the illumination, offering eight different intensity settings including a high/low indicator. The exclusive FireDot reticle will automatically switch to “stand-by mode” after five minutes of inactivity, then reactivate whenever the rifle is moved. This eliminates the need for excess movement reaching for buttons, while extending battery life (the VX-R is powered by a readily available CR-2032 coin cell battery).

The one-turn, non-locking eyepiece accommodates a wider spectrum of visual acuity, even in diminishing light. Near-sighted, far-sighted, or anywhere in between, adjusting the focus of the VX-R is smooth, fast, and precise. An Alumina rubber eyepiece guard is included with every scope.

Another Leupold-unique feature that manages light transmission to your advantage. The blackened lens edges work to reduce unwanted glare and diffusion through the lens edges. By using edge blackening, glare from the lens edges is eliminated, resulting in better resolution, improved contrast, and superior optical performance: no matter what the conditions.

A Leupold exclusive, Index Matched Lens System represents Leupold’s impeccable light management. Leupold engineers specify different coating materials for each lens surface in the riflescope, based on the lens’ index of refraction, placement, and function. Each coating is then layered to maximize light transmission. The result is unparalleled brightness and extremely sharp resolution across the entire visual field.

Marine Special Operations Command Selects Leupold® Mark 8® CQBSS® for Combat Troops

 

BEAVERTON, Ore. – The Leupold® Mark 8® 1.1-8x24mm CQBSS® M5B1 Front Focal has been selected by the United States Marine Corps Special Operations Command (MARSOC) for use by front-line Marines in combat.

The Mark 8 CQBSS was put to the test in situations ranging from advanced sniper courses to combat operations in Afghanistan’s Helmand Valley. This acquisition is just the latest in Leupold’s long history of military service.

“The recognition of the quality and dependability by MARSOC further strengthens the position that Leupold is well-respected in the U.S. military,” said Chris Estadt, Leupold’s director of military business development.

The adaptability and power range of the CQBSS quickly made it a favorite with the Marines at MARSOC. “I use the Mark 8 on my M110SASS K1 carbine, which is my primary weapon as the Marine Special Operations Team sniper,” an undisclosed Marine reported. “I carry it on foot patrol, where I appreciate how quick and easy it is to change the scope power. Its versatility is unmatched in the rapidly changing conditions of modern combat.”

Feedback from Joseph Sroka, Force Modernization Officer, Marine Special Operations Regiment, MARSOC, “This optic allows them (users) to dial down their power and use the illuminated 5 MOA aiming circle as they would a reflex optic when shooting in close quarters or conducting aerial gunnery, and use the same optic to win precision engagements out to the maximum effective range of a 7.62 platform. This optic is ideal for Marine Special Operators and the missions they conduct.”

Leupold has been the designated optic on such sniper systems as the M24, M107, MK12, M110, M14 and M2012. The CQBSS has seen service as part of an optics package for the M2 heavy machine gun and MK19 automatic grenade launcher. Leupold riflescopes have served reliably under the most grueling of combat conditions around the world.

Leupold & Stevens, Inc., the preeminent American-owned optics company, employs hundreds of people in its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility near Beaverton, Ore. Family owned and privately operated, Leupold offers products that are sold worldwide to hunters, competitive shooters, American military warfighters, law enforcement personnel and wildlife observers.
