First Look: Leupold VX-3i Riflescope


Versatile magnification ranges and an attractive new look make the Leupold VX-3i riflescopes ideal for virtually any hunting situation.


The redesigned power selector is easy to grasp and turn and allows the shooter to verify the power setting, even with gloved hands. The Twilight Max Light Management System delivers the highest average light transmission in all colors with emphasis on the blue and red portions of the light spectrum for low light performance and contrast in all conditions.

Edge-blackened lenses reduce diffusion and glare to improve resolution and contrast. Second-generation Argon/Krypton gas resists thermal shock and the dual-spring precision adjustment system ensures match-grade repeatability and strength, topped off with DiamondCoat 2 external lens coatings for scratch resistance.


There are 15 options in the VX-3i line, ranging from the 1.5-5x20mm, which retails for a suggested price of $519.99, to the 6.5x50mm, which retails at a suggested price of $1,169.99.
