Sleek design with daylight-capable illumination; the Leupold VX-R Patrol. Patented 1-button design minimizes bulk, while allowing users to select between 8 intensity settings, including a low/high indicator.
Index matched lens system
A Leupold exclusive, this system has nearly perfected Leupold's already 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, layering each coating to eliminate reflections and maximize light transmission. The result is unparalleled brightness and extremely sharp resolution across the entire visual field.DiamondCoat
This coating on the exterior lenses gives you the ultimate in abrasion resistance and light transmission. The result is a flawless sight picture over a lifetime of hard use. DiamondCoat has made a difference in battle; now it can make a difference where you hunt.2nd Generation Argon/Krypton waterproofing
While Leupold still waterproofs other optics with bone-dry nitrogen technology pioneered by Leupold. Select models feature Leupold's exclusive, proprietary Argon/Krypton gas blend. Its advantages are two fold: it nearly eliminates the effects of thermal shock, and the Argon/Krypton molecules are significantly larger than nitrogen molecules, reducing the diffusion of gases sealed inside your scope even more that Leupold's proven nitrogen technology already does. Leupold pioneered riflescope waterproofing, and now with Argon/Krypton Leupold is exceeding the standards they set themselves.Lead Free
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.FireDot Illumination
Select models are available with Leupold's exclusive FireDot Reticle System in your choice of FireDot SPR and FireDot TMR. 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.MST (Motion Sensor Technology)
An important feature of select illuminated reticle models is the Leupold-exclusive Motion Sensor Technology (MST). A single touch of the button or twist of the dial activates the illumination, offering several different intensity setting (dependent on model) including a high/low indicator (FireDot reticles only). The 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 (powered by a readily available CR-2032 coin cell battery).All Leupold scopes are designed, machined and assembled in the USA.
The Leupold VX-R Patrol Tactical scopes have a full lifetime guarantee.
