Better built. Better optics. Better than ever. There's much to tell about Leupold's new VX-1, but here's how the story ends: No other scope in its class comes even close to the quality, performance, and value of VX-1. With Leupold's revolutionary Quantum Optical System, with lead-free glass and Multicoat 4 lens coatings, the result is up to 92% total light transmission, and a sight picture that is incredible bright, clear and razor sharp. Better have one atop your favorite rifle.
Leupold VX-I Rifle Scopes
VX-1 riflescopes feature the Leupold Quantum Optical System. Carefully selected and ground lead-free lenses, featuring their proprietary Multicoat 4 coatings, are precisely positioned in optimum relationship to each other to produce up to 92% total light transmission. All VX-1 scopes are oxygen purged and nitrogen filled for decades of waterproof and fog proof performance. Finger-adjustable dials (1/4-MOA per click) allow for quick and easy zeroing and adjustments in the field. The VX-1 must pass the same harsh testing as all of Leupold's Golden Ring scopes. Your VX-1 is covered for the life of the scope.

Quantum Optical System
Leupold mechanical and optical scientists, mechanical engineers and product line managers have dedicated their design efforts over the last year to developing the optical system for Leupold's newest generation of riflescopes, including the VX-1, VX-2, VX-R and VX-6. The Quantum Optical System is a leap forward and provides a new level of optical performance for hunters and shooters. using the rugged foundation of the legendary Vari-X series and employing state-of-the-art optical and mechanical design software and manufacturing processes, this system delivers new levels of performance in every optical category. Lead free, ecologically friendly glass compositions are used throughout - the geometry of each lens is maximized through a combination of Ze-max design software and evaluation using Leupold's Zygo Interferometer to minimize wave front error and increase resolution. The result is razor sharp imaging across the typical light conditions experienced on any hunt - from the bright daylight of varminting to the dawn and dusk hours when big whitetails are on the move. By repositioning optical elements, employing new coatings and importantly, leaving key, time-tested mechanical aspects of the Vari-X system untouched, significant performance gains have been achieved in many other areas as well. The Quantum Optical System has greatly enhanced light transmission (up to 92% in the VX-1 system and 94% in the VX-2 system), resolution and color fidelity - all while preserving the ease of use and nearly indestructible ruggedness that has been a hallmark of Leupold riflescopes for generations.
Leupold optics offer better optical clarity as a result of 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. A small step, but one in the right direction.
The generous eyebox 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 he flexibility it affords, and in close up big game or dangerous game situations the quick target acquisition will be the difference maker. At high power, the longer eye relief and more generous eyebox gives you incredible head position latitude and an improved sight picture that fills the eyepiece completely - putting you in better position to make the shot of a lifetime.

BAS (Ballistic Aiming System)
Leupold's Ballisitcs Aiming System is comprised of five specialized reticles which take into account the variables crucial to accurate, long-range shooting. A special ballistics indicator ring allows users to customize their power settings for their cartridge's ballistics, then saves that setting for easy reference in a hunting situation. With multiple aiming points for longer ranges and varying wind speeds, and infinite power selector settings to match your rifle's ballistics, the Ballistics Aiming System can help you master the art of accurate, long-range shooting. It has proved so successful in helping hunters learn how to shoot accurately at long range, Leupold expanded your BAS options with additional reticles offering many of the same benefits as the original reticles. Leupold has also made them available in more riflescopes than ever. With practice, the Ballistics Aiming System will teach you how to gauge the distance to your target, where to place your reticle for that distance, and even how to compensate for wind deflection. With the Ballistics Aiming System and some practice you'll consistently make shots you wouldn't have attempted in the past.
1/4 MOA Finger Click
Finger click adjustments for windage and elevation (1/4 MOA) offer absolute repeatability and dependability over a lifetime of extreme use (metric adjustments - 1 cm per click).
