Leupold & Stevens, Inc., announced the addition of six new optics to its line of VX-Freedom riflescopes. The new additions include a Scout scope, an EFR model, and a CDS dial compatible model, among others.
This second wave of VX-Freedom riflescopes comes shortly after the release of the 10 models announced in early 2018. The extended lineup will feature two models created for AR/MSR platforms, a 1.5-4x20 with AR-Ballistic reticle, and a 3-9x40 with TMR (Tactical Milling Reticle.) Both feature 0.1 Mil/Click adjustments to match the milliradian increments of the reticles. Other additions to the lineup include an Extended Eye Relief 1.5-4x28 Scout scope, and a close focus EFR (Extended Focus Range) 3-9x33 with Fine Duplex reticle, ideal for rimfires and airguns. Rounding out the new additions are a 3-9x40, featuring Leupold's Custom Dial System (CDS), and a 450 Bushmaster model, also in 3-9x40.
"The VX-Freedom line was designed to deliver the versatility and performance that hunters and shooters expect from the Leupold brand, at a tremendous value. We knew that, after getting a look at the VX-Freedom series, consumers would demand the same relentless value and performance from AR and Scout specific models, and we are excited that we're able to deliver what they've been asking for." - Tim Lesser, Vice President of Product Development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc.
The VX-Freedom line is designed, machined, and assembled by Leupold & Stevens Inc. in the United States with one purpose in mind—to give consumers the freedom to put a Leupold on any hunting rifle, .22, AR, or long gun. Military-spec lens coatings provide abrasion resistance, protecting the riflescope in the most challenging terrain, and an ergonomically advanced power selector ring is low-profile, but provides exceptional grip and ease of use, even when wearing gloves.
Additionally, VX-Freedom riflescopes are designed to perform in low-light situations, and provide glare management, thanks to the Leupold Twilight Light Management System. The Twilight Light Management System, a combination of lens coatings and physical design elements in the riflescope, helps hunters make the most of low-light conditions found at dawn and dusk.
The new VX-Freedom line is backed by the company's Full Lifetime Guarantee.
