Leupold & Stevens has announced the addition of a burnt bronze model to its award-winning VX-3i line of riflescopes. The VX-3i CDS-ZL 4.5-14×40 mm will feature a 1-inch maintube and the company’s ZeroLock CDS dial.
Built for performance, the VX-3i line appeals to hunters and shooters alike. Earlier this year, the line was upgraded with one of Leupold’s most popular attributes—the ZeroLock dial. The ZeroLock feature prevents unintended adjustments and ensures an accurate return to zero. Fast and easy to use with a low-profile, one revolution, and CDS-ready dial. It marks the first time Leupold has made ZeroLock technology available at a price point below that of the popular VX-5HD.
“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. “But we wanted to give our consumers more value. That’s why we added the ZeroLock dial, and why we’re adding a burnt bronze finish to the production line—more factory rifles are being made available in bronze, and we want hunters and shooters to be able to match those rifles with the very best optics.”
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. The resulting dial allows shooters to easily compensate for bullet drop and make ultra-quick adjustments on the fly.
Like all VX-3i riflescopes, the new VX-3i CDS-ZL in burnt bronze features the Twilight Max Light Management System, which intensifies ambient light in low-light environments, offers excellent glare management, and delivers premium edge-to-edge clarity. An ultra-lightweight construction disperses recoil energy for unrivaled durability.
Waterproof, fogproof, and guaranteed to perform for life, all VX-3i riflescopes are backed by Leupold’s legendary Lifetime Guarantee.
And don’t forget, the company’s popular DeltaPoint is now night-vision capable.
