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....

Pretty good

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on February 20, 2014
This scope is very fine. Leupold is practically the Rolex of riflescopes. This scope is very plain and basic. I am still saying that it is a good scope, but the only thing you are really paying for is the clarity...which is excellent. It actually seems like it improves my 20-30 vision to 20-15 haha. This scope also holds light very well and I can hunt pretty late into sundown. I see better through the scope in low light than I do with my naked eye, pretty impressive. However, the adjustment knobs on my scope are pretty poorly crafted. Out of the box they are extremely gritty between clicks to the point there is almost no definite 1/4" MOA adjustment. I do not like that.

Pros: Extremely clear and sharp image
Cons: wind/elev knobs are a slight pain...

Great Starter Scope From Leupold

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on February 2, 2014
Found this to be a great scope to start off with. Figured I'd get something from a line that I figured I continue to grow in to as I upgraded. Been very happy and would say anyone looking for a Leupold scope but wants to start on the lighter side of spending this is it.

In the field it has proven to be more than effective. As I have little to compare it to as I am just in the process of upgrading. Others with more experience than I using my rifle at the range or in the field glassing to check it out said it was more than adequate.
Pros: Price
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Fine scope at a reasonable price

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, NV Written on July 1, 2013
This is an excellent beginners scope. I mounted it on my Ruger 10/22 and it is truly awesome. I purchased it at a full service dealer who mounted it and bore sighted it for me. It definitely cost more than buying it at O/P. but then again I did not feel competent to do the set up. I needed a few slight sighting adjustments to get it spot on at 100 yds. Now I can really nail the targets.
Pros: excellent optics for the money
Cons: needed some assistance to sight it in...
Would recommend: Yes
