VX-L height comparison


Leupold has created a radically different design with the VX-L scope. This proprietary, patent-pending rifle scope design includes a small crescent in the lower radius of the objective lens, so the Leupold VX-L Scope can be mounted to hug the barrel, like part of the rifle itself. The legendary low-light performance, ruggedness, and absolute waterproof integrity that Leupold is famous for remains 100 percent intact.

VX-L Leupold ProfileMount your Leupold 50mm VX-L as low as a typical 36mm riflescope, and your Leupold 56mm VX-L as low as a 40mm riflescope, while gaining a larger exit pupil and other low-light advantages! But that's not all. The Leupold VX-L also features Leupold Second Generation waterproofing technology, the exclusive Leupold DiamondCoat Index Matched Lens System with new blackened lens edges, and more. If you've been waiting for the low down on low-light performance, it's finally here.

Features of Leupold VXL Scopes

Features of the Leupold VX-L Rifle Scope Series

View through VX-L Reticle Light Optimization Profile gives you the low-light performance advantages of a large objective riflescope, without the high mount. Leupold 50mm VX-L mounts like a 36mm riflescope, yet delivers 48.6 percent more Total Light Throughput (TLT)! Likewise, the 56mm Leupold VX-L mounts like a 40mm rifle scope, and delivers 96 percent more Total Light Throughput. The lower mount also gives your rifle better balance, and the quick, accurate aiming that comes with a low-mount cheekweld.

Argon Krytpon Leupold's Second Generation Waterproofing: While Leupold still waterproofs other optics with bone-dry nitrogen - first pioneered by Leupold in 1947 - Leupold VX-L riflescope features an exclusive proprietary Argon/Krypton gas blend. The advantages are two-fold. First, it nearly eliminates the effects of thermal shock. Second, Argon/Krypton molecules are significantly larger than nitrogen molecules, reducing the diffusion of gasses sealed inside your scope even more than Leupold proven nitrogen waterproofing technology already does. Leupold pioneered nitrogen waterproofing, and it remains the industry standard. Argon/Krypton waterproofing now exceeds the first standard set.

Indexed Matched Lens System Index Matched Lens System with DiamondCoat on VX-L riflescopes: A Leupold exclusive, this system has nearly perfected Leupold's already impeccable light management. Leupold optical engineers specify different coating materials for each lens surface within the riflescope, based on its index of refraction, placement, and function. They also matched the ideal coatings to each lens' glass type and layered these substances to minimize reflections and maximize light transmission. The result is unparalleled brightness and clarity.

Diamond Coat CoatingLeupold Diamond Coat lens coatings: These Leupold lenses are currently protecting the lenses of Leupold Mark 4 CQ/T riflescopes in the dustiest, sandiest environments on earth: Iraq and Afghanistan. Leupold has added this durable multicoating to the objective lens and eyepiece lens of Leupold VX-L to give you the ultimate in abrasion resistance and light transmission, for a flawless sight picture over a lifetime of hard use. It has made a difference in battle, and will make a difference where you hunt.

Dual Spring Titanium/Nitride/Stainless Adjustment System gives you incredibly tight tolerances and near perfect engagement of the interior surfaces, for the utmost precision, as well as outstanding strength and durability. All 3.5-10x and 4.5-14x magnification VX-L riflescopes feature finger-adjustable 1/4-MOA click adjustments with resettable pointer dials. Leupold VX-L 6.5-20x56mm Rifle-scope offers finger-adjustable 1/10th-MOA target adjustments with resettable dials.

Dual Spring Erector System is the last word in ruggedness and durability, which is why Leupold uses it in Leupold Mark 4 tactical riflescopes. The standard Leupold erector system is the industry benchmark for ruggedness and durability. The dual spring erector system takes it a step even further, exerting up to 30 percent more holding force on the erector. This system virtually eliminates erector system backlash and stress on the vital internal workings of your Leupold VX-L riflescope. The result is generations of adjustment life and a riflescope that's more capable than ever of withstanding incredible abuse and pounding recoil.

VX-L Side FocusSide Focus Parallax Adjustment Dial on select models gives you the capability to easily and quickly focus, from any shooting position, and delivers pinpoint adjustments from 25 yards (or less) to infinity.

Blackened lens edges are yet another way Leupold's optical engineers ensure light is transmitted properly through the scope, by reducing glare and providing the best possible contrast.

Lockable, extreme fast-focus eyepiece is threaded to allow even faster focusing than ever before. Set it quick, then securely lock it in for reliable performance every time you put your Leupold VX-L to your eye.

Boone and Crockett Big Game reticle and Varmint Hunter reticle are available in select models. These unique reticles, part of Leupold's exclusive Ballistic Aiming System, make mastering long-range shooting easier than ever, with multiple aiming points for longer ranges and varying wind speed. Two power selector settings provide an easy way to set the aiming points to match your ballistics.

One-piece one-inch and 30mm main tubes are manufactured from single blocks of 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum alloy to offer outstanding lightweight strength and durability.

Tactile power indicator with range estimating feature on the power selector ring is super smooth, due to the addition of special graphite O-rings and infinite power band. The infinite power band selector lets you set your magnification exactly where you want it, not on a pre-set magnification that clicks into place, as on lesser riflescopes.

Totally Custom Anodized Finishes for Leupold Rifle scopes(please allow 8 to 12 weeks)

For nearly 60 years, Leupold has used a hard anodized finish on Leupold rifle scopes, because it's the toughest finish that could be applied. Now, through the Leupold Custom Shop, OpticsPlanet can offer several new, exciting solid colors, fades, or even a unique "splatter" to any color offered. Anodized Custom ColorsYou can get an amazing looking one-of-a-kind riflescope with Leupold's custom anodizing processing. This custom color selection creates a unique scope like no other!

Our Leupold Custom Shop offers the options of a solid color, or a fade from black in front to your choice of color at the ocular - you can get a solid color, matte black faded to a matte custom color, or gloss black faded to a gloss custom color. The Leupold Custom Shop offers the following options: Forest Green,OD Green, Smoke Gray, Gun Metal Gray, Cobalt Blue, and Competition Red. You can also select Black or Silver anodizing if the Leupold riflescope that you selected to customize is not available in that color.

PLEASE NOTE: Some of the options that you might find in a printed Leupold Custom Shop Catalog or shown here are not available at this time. The color swatches shown here are representational only and are not exact - we are working with Leupold to get better pictures for this option.

In our Leupold Custom Shop you can choose one color, or you can have your riflescope finished in matte or gloss, with a fade to black or a tie dye! The price arithmetic is not simple, so here is an example on how a custom finish price is calculated.

  • Custom AnodizedBase price for ONE solid matte color $150.00
  • Add gloss finish $100.00
  • Add splatter $35.00 then add a fade for $35.00
  • Add tie dye $35.00

To add a fade from black to red in gloss with green and red splatter would be $150.00 + $100.00 + $35.00 + $35.00 + $35.00 = $355

If select a custom anodized finish, please allow 8 to 12 weeks for the scope to be completed. All other custom options are normally completed in four to six weeks.
