Leupold Offers up Scout Rifle Scopes Through Custom Shop

Posted by admin On March - 24 - 2011

It looks like Leupold is making a point of venturing into territory that most scope manufacturers avoid at all costs. The company, which is known for its high-quality optics and innovative designs, recently announced that hunters and shooters can now order a VX-II 1.5-4x28mm scout rifle scope through the Leupold Custom Shop.

These scopes are designed for scout rifles, level action rifles or any set-up that demands the optics be mounted in front of the receiver. The VX-II variable scout scope helps the shooter quickly locate the target with an amazing 8.75 inches of eye relief on low power. On high power, the scope still offers 7.75 inches of eye relief. If that weren’t enough, those ordering the scope will have several reticle options available to choose from.

The VX-II variable scout scope is among the first of a series of products that will be launched exclusively through the Leupold Custom Shop.  It joins a 3x20mm fixed-power rifle scope that was introduced earlier this year.

“We have already seen a lot of interest in the variable scout scope, even though it is not in our regular line,” said Pat Mundy, communications manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc.  “Those who want more information on this and other new offerings should contact our custom shop directly.”

Other key features of the VX-II variable scout scope include Leupold’s proprietary Multicoat 4 lens system for a bright, clear image, and ¼-MOA field click adjustments for windage and elevation.

The scope has a one-inch maintube, measures nearly 11 inches in length and weighs only 8.8 ounces.  Field of view at 100 yards on the lowest magnification is 41.7 feet. At its highest magnification, the field of view is 16.5 feet.

Like all Golden Ring optics, the VX-II 1.5-4x28mm scout scope is waterproof and fog proof, and is backed by Leupold’s full lifetime guarantee.
