Leupold VX-R Rifle Scopes
Leupold VX-R rifle scope is the latest innovation from the company whose name is synonymous with the best in optics. Leupold combined the best of the illumination technology with an exclusive FireDot reticule and created the new breed of scopes in its lineup: Leupold VX-R Riflescopes. The new VXR's feature Leupold exclusive fiber optic technology, which helps the VX-R rifle scopes deliver true daylight visible illumination (clearly seen in bright light conditions). These new scopes have an optimal light transmission and reticle contrast in low-light situations to extend precious minutes at dawn or dusk. Make no mistake - this is LEUPOLD scope. The new VX-R is everything and more in an illuminated scope from America's Optics Authority. So, go ahead: light him up.
Technology dominates today's riflescope design and it would be disrespectful to Leupold to assume that VX-R scopes will simply be a remake of something tried and true. Drawing on its century history of innovation, Leupold took the best and the most sought after features that hunters and shooters have been asking for and built them into every one of its VX R scopes.
MST or Motion Sensor Technology
The VX-R Rifle Scopes take advantage of Leupold proprietary Motion Sensor Technology or MST. Just a single touch of the button engages the illumination controls of the scope, giving user eight different brightness intensity settings including a high or low indicator. The Leupold exclusive FireDot reticule will automatically switch to "stand-by mode" after five minutes of stillness, then reactivate itself whenever it detects motion. This feature helps extend battery life of the VX-R scope (it uses CR-2032 type) while eliminating the need for excess movement when reaching for buttons.
Leupold Exclusive FireDot Reticle System
VX-R Scopes come with a brand exclusive FireDot Reticule System in your choice of FireDot Duplex, FireDot Circle, Ballistic FireDot, and FireDot 4. Once turned on, the dot within the reticle illuminates with very bright, crisp definition, while the cross hairs of the rest of the reticle remain non-illuminated. This reticlue design helps you look naturally at the center aiming point and makes getting on target quick, precise, and simple.
Optimal Field Illumination
The technology that drives the performance of the VXR scope is incredible. Consider that the end of the fiber optic light pipe inside the VX-R Scope is cut and polished to deliver the brightest dot in the field, and true daylight-capable illumination. Even in the brightest of light conditions you will clearly see the reticle, while not overpowering the view in the dim conditions of daybreak and sunset. The end result? Much better target clarity, contrast and definition in all light conditions.
