The military-spec lens coating offers high abrasion resistance, protecting the riflescope in harsh terrain and conditions. A magnification power selector ring, ergonomically advanced despite its low profile, offers exceptional grip and great ease of use, even in extremely cold, wet weather or when wearing gloves.

The VX-Freedom series guarantees excellent performance in low-light situations and an exceptional management of glare and unwanted reflections, thanks to the proprietary Leupold “Twilight Light Management” system. The twilight management system helps to make the most of the low-light conditions that can be encountered at sunrise and sunset.

“Our new VX-Freedom line delivers the versatility and performance hunters and shooters have come to expect from the Leupold brand, all while remaining budget-friendly,” said Tim Lesser, vice president of product development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc.  “Whether you’re looking for your first scope or your fortieth, there will be a VX-Freedom that suits your needs – all sporting our legendary gold ring."

The VX-Freedom range is currently available in some of the most popular magnification ranges, such as 1.5-4x20, 2-7x33, 3-9x40, 3-9x50, 4-12x40. A reticle on the second focal plane and a tube diameter of one inch are features shared by all VX-Freedom models. The models of this series will have specific options also for muzzleloaders and rimfire weapons. Duplex and Pig-Plex reticles specific for boar hunting will be available, together with the new Rimfire MOA, Tri-MOA and UltimateSlam reticles.

Retail prices vary from model to model, but in the US they range between 234.99 USD (about 192 euro) and 389.99 USD (about 320 euro).
