Trusted by hunters and shooters worldwide. The VX®–2 delivers the performance and features that serious hunters demand. We thought of everything…tactile power indicators; finger–adjustable click windage and elevation dials; the brightness, clarity, and contrast needed to hunt even in low–light conditions. Of course, the ruggedness, absolute waterproof integrity, and famous Leupold® Full Lifetime Guarantee only add to the VX–2's popularity.
Quantum Optical System
The Quantum Optical System™ uses the rugged foundation of the legendary Vari–X series and employing state–of–the–art optical and mechanical design software and manufacturing processes. This system delivers new levels of performance in every optical category. Lead free, ecologically friendly glass compositions are used throughout—the geometry of each lens is maximized through a combination of Ze–max® design software and evaluation using Leupold's Zygo® Interferometer to minimize wave front error and increase resolution. The result is razor sharp imaging across the typical light conditions experienced on any hunt—from the bright daylight of varmiting to the dawn and dusk hours when big whitetails are on the move. By repositioning optical elements, employing new coatings and importantly, leaving key, time–tested mechanical aspects of the Vari–X system untouched, significant performance gains have been achieved in many other areas as well. The Quantum Optical System has greatly enhanced light transmission (up to 94% in the VX–2 system), resolution and color fidelity—all while preserving the ease of use and nearly indestructible ruggedness that has been a hallmark of Leupold riflescopes for generations.
Index Matched Lens System
Leupold engineers specify different coating materials for each lens surface in the riflescope, based on the lens’ index of refraction, placement and function, layering each coating to eliminate reflections and maximize light transmission. The result is unparalleled brightness and extremely sharp resolution across the entire visual field.
This coating on the exterior lenses gives you the ultimate in abrasion resistance and light transmission. The result is a flawless sight picture over a lifetime of hard use.
2nd Generation Argon/Krypton Waterproofing
While we still waterproof other optics with bone–dry nitrogen — technology pioneered by Leupold® — select models feature our exclusive, proprietary Argon/Krypton gas blend. Its advantages are two fold: it nearly eliminates the effects of thermal shock, and the Argon/Krypton molecules are significantly larger than nitrogen molecules, reducing the diffusion of gases sealed inside your scope even more than our proven nitrogen technology already does.
Leupold optics offer better optical clarity as a result of lead–free glass lenses. In addition to its superior optics, the lenses are produced with none of the environmentally damaging by–products common to standard glass production.
The generous eyebox makes it faster and easier to get your eye behind the riflescope and achieve a full, clear sight picture. Setting up for longer shots you'll appreciate the flexibility it affords, and in close up big game or dangerous game situations the quick target acquisition will be the difference maker. At high power, the longer eye relief and more generous eyebox gives you incredible head position latitude and an improved sight pictue that fills the eyepiece completely – putting you in better position to make the shot of a lifetime.
Blackened Lens Edges
Blackened lens edges reduce unwanted glare and diffusion through the lens edges to provide better resolution, improved contrast and superior optical perrformance.
BAS (Ballistic Aiming System)
A special ballistics indicator ring allows users to customize their power settings for their cartridge’s ballistics, then saves that setting for easy reference in a hunting situation. With multiple aiming points for longer ranges and varying wind speeds, and infinite power selector settings to match your rifle’s ballistics, the Ballistics Aiming System can help you master the art of accurate, long–range shooting.
