Leupold Expands VX-3i Riflescope Line

posted on January 14, 2020
Leupold has announced the launch of four new models in its VX-3i riflescope line, featuring the company's ZeroLock CDS dial for the first time. Two of these new models will be available with a 30 mm maintube and a side focus feature, while the other two have 1-inch maintubes and no side focus. Magnification ranges from 3.5-10X to 4.5-14X, and Duplex and Wind-Plex reticles are available. Already a popular line with hunters, this addition to the VX-3i will add an even greater level of precision, with the low-profile ZeroLock dials preventing unintended adjustment, and ensuring accurate returns to zero. 

Also included is Leupold’s proprietary CDS (Custom Dial System) feature. One free dial is included with the purchase of each CDS-compatible scope. Leupold will customize an elevation dial to match an exact load, velocity and average atmospheric conditions, meaning the resulting dial will allow end-users to easily compensate for bullet drop and make ultra-quick adjustments on the fly.

“The VX-3i is already one of the most versatile and successful Gold Ring riflescopes we’ve ever built,” said Vici Peters, product line manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “But we wanted to give our consumers more value. The ZeroLock dial is a premium feature that we’re excited to make available on a line that’s accessible to hunters and shooters across the entire industry.”

These VX-3i models will appear on shelves for between $499.99 and $749.99. For more information, please visit leupold.com.
