Leupold VX-5HD Riflescope
With high-definition lenses, the Leupold VX-5HD offers extended low-light hunting performance, so stalkers can keep going right until last light. When it’s time to pull the trigger, the accuracy and additional elevation provided byu the two-turn CDS ZeroLock 2 dials are a godsend.
Described as the lightest, most rugged 5:1 riflescope in its class, a VX-5HD features Leupold’s proprietary argon/krypton gas bland, which nearly eliminates the effects of thermal shock and reduces the diffusion of gases sealed inside your scope even more than proven nitrogen technology.
Blackened lens edges reduce light diffusion and the fast-focus eyepiece ensures a generous eyebox and superior field of view.
