All my VX5HD scopes are just over one pound. I didn't put much concern in scope weight until building a lightweight hunting rifle. Then once I purchased my first VX5HD, I couldn't believe the weight difference. From clarity to turret upgrade, these scopes are really next generation leupolds.Thank you. I looked at it and it's a very impressive scope but it is pretty heavy. Not that I plan on hiking miles a day but I would like to keep it somewhat light.
