Leupold VX-3HD 2.5-8x36 CDS-ZL, Duplex
The VX-3HD 2.5-8x36mm delivers legendary performance and extreme clarity in an incredibly tough, lightweight package. It's the perfect workhorse for timber hunting and mid-range shots.
The VX-3HD delivers outstanding performance in low light. With Leupold’s Elite Optical System, the VX-3HD delivers excellent dawn-to-dusk light transmission for a bright image when it matters most, elite-level glare reduction in harsh light, and the resolution and clarity that diehard hunters and shooters demand. We also gave it match-grade repeatability and ergonomic controls that are easy to read and use, even with gloves. The VX-3HD is the best lightweight, low-light hunting scope in its class. And with its low-profile, one-revolution CDS ZeroLock dial, you can be confident your dial will only move when you want it to. Push the button to unlock it, dial, and then rotate it back to zero to lock it in place. It’s that simple.
Everything we put into your VX-3HD is there to help you tag out. Like all Leupold riflescopes, it's designed, machined, and assembled in the USA and guaranteed for life.
- 3:1 Zoom Ratio: A 3:1 zoom ratio is very common in many scope models. It gives you 3 times more magnification at high power than at low power (model magnification ranges are available in powers of 3x: 1.5-5, 2.5-8, 3-9, 3.5-10, etc.), so you can dial your power down for close encounters or all of the way up for long-range shots.
- Custom Dial Compatible: Leupold's Custom Dial System (CDS) gives you the ability to customize your turret (adjustment dial) to your exact ballistics and environmental conditions. Once your new custom dial is installed, simply range the target, turn the dial to that number, and aim dead on.
- Zero Lock Dial: The ZeroLock system eliminates accidental dial movement by locking it in place.
Lightweight Aluminum Housing: Aluminum offers excellent durability and ruggedness without adding unnecessary weight.
- Lockable Eyepiece: A traditional eyepiece lock ring allows you to lock in a focus setting that is best for your eye.
- Waterproof, Fogproof & Shockproof: Leupold pioneered modern waterproof and fogproof technology using advanced internal gasses and sealing methods that withstand extreme temperatures, elevation changes, and shocks, so the internals of the optics stay moisture free and crystal clear for life.
