Leupold’s sleek VX-R Patrol Rifle Scope features an illuminated reticle that makes target acquisition and shot placement much easier, even in broad daylight.
The VX-R Patrol Rifle Scope houses Leupold’s exclusive Index Matched Lens System, which provides unparalleled brightness and extremely sharp resolution across the entire visual field. The scope’s Motion Sensor Technology (MST) enables you to select and activate one of eight intensity settings (including a low/high indicator) with a single push of the button or twist of the dial. Once activated, the center dot of the FireDot Special Purpose Reticle will illuminate while the rest of the reticle remains non-illuminated. This combination leads your eye naturally to the center aiming point and makes target acquisition quick, precise, and simple. With its thermal shock-resistant waterproofing and abrasion-resistant lens coating, the VX-R Patrol Rifle Scope is a durable, reliable scope that will function well in nearly any environment.

Index Matched Lens System
A Leupold® exclusive, this system has nearly perfected Leupold’s already impeccable light management. 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. DiamondCoat™ has made a difference in battle; now it can make a difference where you hunt.
2nd Generation Argon/Krypton Waterproofing
While Leupold still waterproof other optics the bone-dry nitrogen – a technology that they pioneered – select models feature their exclusive, proprietary Argon/Krypton gas blend. Its advantages are twofold: 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 Leupold’s 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. A small step, but one in the right direction.
The FireDot Special Purpose Reticle provides greater precision at longer ranges than generally possible with other reticle styles, yet it’s also used for instinctive, close-range, low-magnification engagements. Once activated, the dot within the reticle illuminates with bright, sharp definition, while the rest of the reticle is non-illuminated. This combination leads your eye naturally to the center aiming point and makes target acquisition quick, precise, and simple.
MST (Motion Sensor Technology)
An important feature of select Illuminated reticle models is the Leupold-exclusive Motion Sensor Technology (MST). A single touch of the button or twist of the dial activates the illumination, offering eight different intensity settings, including a high/low indicator. The reticle will automatically switch to “stand-by mode” after five minutes of inactivity, then reactivate whenever the rifle is moved. This eliminates the need for excess movement reaching for buttons, while extending battery life (powered by a readily available CR-2032 coin cell battery).
