The LEUPOLD VX-6 2-12x42 Rifle Scope, Illuminated FireDot LR Duplex Reticle, Matte Black (111980) has unique features you can imagine - legendary ruggedness, stunning optics, and a huge 6x zoom ratio that shortens the distance to your next trophy. With the VX-6 atop your favorite rifle, the advantage is all yours. The VX-6 features a powerful 6:1 zoom ratio that is crystal clear from edge to edge - across the entire magnification range. Use the lowest power setting for a wider field of view on fast moving, close game. Use the mid-range settings to bring targets in just right without losing image quality or accuracy. Or turn to the highest power setting to pull those distant targets in tight for a closer look and more precise shot placement. You get stunning clarity, color fidelity, and razor sharp images throughout the entire eyebox and power range. The Twin Bias Spring Erector System features beryllium/copper alloy leaf springs to withstand the most intense abuse. Built with up to 30 percent more holding force, it virtually eliminates erector system backlash and stress. The generous eyebox of the VX-6 series makes it faster and easier to get your eye behind the riflescope and achieve a full, clear sight picture. Setting up for longer shots, you'll appreciate the flexibility the VX-6 affords, and in close-up big game or dangerous game situations, the quick target acquisition will be the difference maker. Even at high power, the longer eye relief and more generous eyebox gives you incredible latitude and an improved sight picture that fills the eyepiece completely. The Xtended Twilight Lens System takes all Leupold knowledge, expertise, and experience with light transmission and moves it one step closer to perfection, matching the proper balance of lens coatings with specifically engineered glass and index of refraction. The result allows you to reach deeper into twilight and low-light settings, helping you to better distinguish antlers from branches and animal hide from brush. Exterior lens surfaces treated with Leupold exclusive DiamondCoat 2 provide the best abrasion resistance Leupold has ever offered - exceeding even military standards. DiamondCoat 2 offers unsurpassed durability while boosting light transmission for greater brightness, clarity, and contrast. The VX-6 riflescope offers better optical clarity as a result of its meticulously cut and polished, lead-free glass lenses. In addition to its superior optics, the lenses are produced with none of the environmentally damaging by-products common to standard glass production. Another Leupold-unique feature the blackened lens edges, which work to reduce unwanted glare and diffusion through the lens edges. By using edge blackening, stray light is absorbed rather than reflected, resulting in better resolution, improved contrast, and superior optical performance: no matter what the conditions. This model VX-6 2-12x42 Rifle Scope comes with an Illuminated FireDot LR Duplex reticle, which will assist you with accurate, repeatable, and ethical long-range shooting. It features a Duplex central aiming point for rifles zeroed at 200 yards, and calibrated hold points for 300, 400 and 500 yards. The illuminated reticle features second generation LED technology, nearly twice as bright as previous models, with multiple intensity settings for precise shot placement in low-light situations. The extreme fast-focus eyepiece provides for more diopter travel to accommodate a wider spectrum of visual acuity. Near-sighted, far-sighted, or anywhere in between, adjusting the focus of the VX-6 is smooth, fast, and precise. An Alumina rubber eyepiece guard is included with every scope. Dialing in your VX-6 is easy and instantaneous with pop-up re-zeroable finger click adjustments that the user can convert to CDS adjustments. This unique system allows you to match your scope to your specific ballistics and environmental conditions (Comes with one FREE CDS dial. Additional dials available). The VX-6 riflescope takes advantage of Leupold Second Generation waterproofing, using an exclusive Argon/Krypton gas blend. This combination of gasses resists thermal shock more effectively than ever before and reduces the diffusion of internal gases over time. Absolute waterproof integrity is guaranteed.
