Beautiful optic

by Duke, from United States, MN Written on March 25, 2015
Love this scope. Crystal clear, easy no tool adjustment dials. Comes with rubber lens protector. Great eye relief. For the money it is the best scope you can buy. I have it mounted on a .300 win mag with no recoil issues....

Leupold VX-1 Silver 3-9x40mm riflescope

by JayBird, from United States, NC Written on March 16, 2015
Fantastic scope at an awesome price. Leopold is a brand that NEVER lets me down and this scope is no exception.I own several other Leopold scopes so when I decided to build a .22 target rifle, Leopold was the first and last choice I made! Even this inexpensive VX-1 I purchased from Optics Planet outperforms other riflescope that cost two or even three times what this scope cost. It was a fantastic deal at Optics Planet and was delivered quickly too...what more could I ask for?!?! Thank you Leopold and thank you Optics Planet!...

Great optic!

by LipschitzWrath, from United States, WY Written on February 28, 2015
I currently have this mounted on a 1976 Ruger .44 Carbine. What a great combo. Turn it down to 3x for ultra fast target acquisition, and up to 9x for more precision at longer ranges. And of course, because it's Leupold, you know that the optical clarity is excellent. I've had cheaper 50mm obj scopes that have less light transmission than this. I bought a VX-1 because the gun wasn't used nearly enough to justify the VX-3 model. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one! Leupold''s value line is better than most manufacturers higher level offerings....

Leupol VX-1 3X9 X 40 Rifle Scope

by Joe, from United States, AL Written on February 25, 2015
Good scope for coyote hunting hunting. Very clear optics. I have always used Leupold scopes. I have a 3 X 9 X 50 scope on a 270 rifle and have never had to re-adjust it. I don't consider other scopes in this price range to to be near the quality of Leupold....
Pros:
  • Very well made
Cons:
  • none... yet
Best Used for:
  • Predator hunting

Comparison to Zeiss Conquest

by freenate, from United States, GA Written on February 24, 2015
Let me preface this by saying I'm not your average scope buyer, I have owned over a dozen scopes and looked through probably over 100. I was searching for a lightweight scope to mount to my AR-10 and had the opportunity to view this at a local shop. There are many important factors to consider when buying a scope, and this one impressed me on all fronts. The eye relief is excellent, and does not change when adjusting the magnification level. The eye box is pretty good, but not as good as a higher end scope like a Monarch. It works just fine in practice. The scope offers a very bright crisp image that does not dim at full 9x. Low light performance is very good. The sweet spot is about 80% of the viewing radius. Outside of the sweet spot there is a very slight loss of crispness in the image but it's still very usable. This scope does NOT have any tunnel effect going on. When your eye is positioned the correct distance the outer tube nearly disappears. The overall size of the image is good. Mine has almost no chromatic aberration (purple fringing in bright light or around distant bright subjects). I have dropped the scope from a height of about 5 feet onto a wood floor about 4 times and there was no damage. What really impressed me about this scope was how light it is for the optics you get. It's under 11oz! I was trying to keep the weight of my rifle platform down and this was icing on the cake. I compared it side by side with my Zeiss Conquest, also a 3-9x40. The optics are al...

Good scope

by Bizzle, from United States, FL Written on February 22, 2015
I bought this scope bc I wanted a good scope with good low light visibility and could hold zero on a .223 hunting rifle that gets use in the woods (not a safe queen). I compared this scope side by side to the vortex crossfire and Nikon pro staff, and chose the vx1. It came with lens covers and the leupold warranty...
Pros:
  • Warranty, Construction, Clarity
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • hunting

Leupold Scopes

by Buffalo Killer, from United States, IL Written on February 15, 2015
I have been using Leupold telescopic sights on rifles for 50 years. They are the best scope for the money I have found. If I could afford a fancy German scope I would still opt for the Leupold. The most recent VX-1 3-9x40mm went on a rifle a friend brought me for a referb. He was as happy as a kid with a new toy when he saw that I had fitted Leupold VX-1 for him.scope....

leupold vx-1 scope

by rosco15, from United States, OH Written on January 29, 2015
Had this scope suggested to me by a friend who has it on his 308 bolt action hunting rifle. He's taken many deer with it. Fit and finish are excellent. You will be very impressed with the eye relief of this scope. I was able to mount it well clear of my face. Clarity of the scope is excellent. Great scope for the money and I'm very happy with my purchase....
