Perfect for my purpouse

by Hejen, from United States, VA Written on December 11, 2014
Perfect for rifles with less recoil like .222 or .223. The clearity and smooth lines make this really affordable! I use it on an old Brno rifle (.222) where I did not want to change the scoperings, so this was a real upgrade for the money!...
Pros:
  • price/performance
Cons:
  • 1" tube
Best Used for:
  • Lighter calibers
Would recommend: Yes

Great scope

by Mark, from United States, MO Written on November 25, 2014
Had 2 bills to spend on scope and got a very decent piece. MADE in The USA!!! Nice clear optics. Clear up thru the 9 power. I had 200 dollar budget and chose this scope over the Nikon pro staff in the end because it was a made in the USA product....

Excellent scope for the money

by Thomas Holton, from United States, MN Written on November 14, 2014
I have owned several of these scopes over the years, and it is hard to beat the clarity and durability of these scopes. I've yet to see any of these scopes fail despite the rigors of hunting in all weather conditions. I own several other Leupold products in other variations, but for the money, these are the benchmark that all others should be compared to. No scope in this price range can compare....

Leupold Scope

by Bob, from United States, NY Written on November 6, 2014
I have just recently purchased this Leupold rifle scope and was very please at the price from Optics Planet and the free shipping and received it in a timely manner with a tracking number. The customer service which seems to be very good even though I have not used it as of this writing. I received and e-mail from Google stating if I had a problem they would handle it. I have numerous Leupold scopes and I am very pleased with Leupold. I have not as of this writing used this scope but hunting seasons is about a little over a week away and I will sight the scope in on my rifle. I would recommend Optics Plant in the further. Leupold on the other had I have written them e-mails about scope mounts and other issues and never receive and e-mail back. In the further I will call them even though they have on their web sign a sign up news letter and they seem to be the worst customer service going. I would rate this product only a four star only because I have e-mail Leupold three times already and they have never responded to my e-mails. I would have rated this a 5 star but they never responded. In the further I will make a telephone call and find out who I am talking to....

Clear and bright

by arlingtonhunter, from United States, VA Written on October 29, 2014
It is a Leupold so there not much more to say. These new Vari-X 1's are awesome. Positive sight adjustments. Great eye relief. They hold zero very well and they look great. These are a great value ad I use them on rifles costing much much more!...

Leupold VX-1 is without equal in its price range.

by nrakev, from United States, TX Written on October 7, 2014
I've had many Leupold products through the years and the VX-1 is just amazing value. I have wondered many times how Leupold holds the price to such an affordable level yet offers so many outstanding features. I built a Weatherby in .308 Win for hunting this year and settled on the Leupold VX-1 ax the perfect scope for the kind of hunting I intend to do. The scope sighted in perfectly and I'm printing 1 inch groupx at 100 yards!...
Pros:
  • Price
  • Quality
  • American made.
Cons:
  • None

The Leupold "fanbois" are right, after all

by Cowboy T, from United States, CA Written on September 8, 2014
I always take "fanboi-ism" with a grain of salt. That's what I thought I was seeing with all these people saying, "BUY LEUPOLD!!" Well, OpticsPlanet had the VX-1's on sale at a nice discount, so I thought, OK, let's try one. The skeptic has been converted. They were right. This VX-1 scope does exactly what I need, and it's clear enough for my purposes. I even tried one on a 12-gauge with slugs, just for fun, to see if I could break it. Nope, didn't break. If only my shoulder could've been as strong. This VX-1 scope is priced affordably, too. Don't get me wrong, Nikon makes a good scope, too, but for the price of the VX-1, I can get both made-in-USA quality and USA-based support. Hard to beat that for $200....
Pros:
  • Well priced for what you get
  • Traditional, clean duplex reticle; easy to get on target
  • Made in USA; support also here in USA
Cons:
  • No 6x18 version (wouldn't that be nice?)
Best Used for:
  • Any distance up to 600 yds
Would recommend: Yes

Leupold scope

by Chris, from United States, MA Written on September 1, 2014
Excellent scope at this price. Mounted it on an older model rifle, replacing original scope that came with it.
Optics, reticule, all make this an excellent choice. Easy to mount in existing system. It gives my rifle an above average upgrade...

good scope

by tex, from United States, CA Written on August 29, 2014
This scope is exactly what I expected and what I wanted for my AR 6.8 it is accurate, takes abuse because its a Leopold plus its an American made product on my American made rifle that's the best part. Accurate at 100 yards haven't shot further but no need. Clear optics to. Lightweight so you are not adding a lot of weight....
