VX-6 7-42X56mm (34mm) Side Focus Target is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great F-class Scope. Started using late last year on my F T/R rifle. Extremely clear at 600 and 1000 yards, and accurate adjustments when correcting for point of impact. Returns to zero repeatedly and holds points of impact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! Mounted on my custom M1903A4 Springfield chambered in 7.62 NATO. Scope is worth more than the rifle. Accuracy out to 600 yds is unsurpassed for this set up. Could not be more pleased! Highly recommended scope for long distance shooters. Ammo is hand loaded to current GI specs Mk 316 Mod 0, using a SMK 175 BTHP pushed with 41.75 gr of IMR 4074. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scope out there. I've had this scope for just a year now and I honestly wish this scope was made years ago. If I had the money every rifle I had would have this on it. Especially with one free turret customized with the purchase. Leupold knows what they are doing and I have multiple scopes and every one has yet to disappoint me. Thanks for the amazing product you put out there...... And never stop making the VX-6

Rated 5 out of 5 by from reliability counts! I am a pro 3 gun shooter (sponsored by Leupold), but I felt it right to share that I'm proud to partner with the best, because this is my livelihood and performing well matters! My Mark 6 1-6 scope get used and abused, more so than probably any other consumer, except for military. It's nice to know you can count on your glass every time!

100% Waterproof and Fog Proof

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. We pioneered riflescope waterproofing, and now with Argon/Krypton we’re exceeding the standards we set ourselves.

6:1 Zoom Ratio

A powerful 6:1 zoom ratio delivers crystal clear images from edge-to-edge throughout the entire magnification range. Many higher power scopes provide the best picture at each end of the zoom ratio, leaving the middle ranges weaker on clarity and resolution. The Leupold 6X erector system was engineered from the outset to provide consistently exceptional image quality across the entire visual field throughtout the entire zoom range. Twin Bias Spring Erector System features berylium/copper alloy leaf springs and 30% more holding force to withstand the most intense recoil and abuse.

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.

Extreme Fast-Focus Eyepiece

The extreme fast-focus eyepiece ensures a generous eyebox, superior field of view and optimal diopter adjustment in the field. It allows the the user to adjust through the full range of diopter adjustment in one complete turn of the eyepiece.

Generous Eyebox

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.

Lead Free

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.

Xtended Twilight Lens System

Now your hunt can reach further into the twilight than ever before possible, with our exclusive new Xtended Twilight Lens System™. It goes a step further than even the Index Matched Lens System®, using Leupold’s® index matched glass with wavelength specific lens coatings designed to optimize the transmission of low-light wavelengths. When most scope manufacturers quote percentage of light transmission, they usually mean at 550 nm, the green wavelength where the human eye is most sensitive. The challenge is that in twilight conditions, green light disappears and blue/violet light takes over. Your eye is already handicapped when it comes to seeing the blue/violet spectrum, and if your scope is cutting too much of it out, soon you won’t be seeing anything. The Xtended Twilight Lens System places extra emphasis on matching coatings to glass indices to achieve the best possible transmission of the blue/violet spectrum, without sacrificing the color balanced light transmission across the visual spectrum of the Index Matched Lens System. When we combine that with superior computer-generated optical design, lead-free lenses of unsurpassed clarity and quality, and 100 years of manufacturing excellence, you have a scope that gives you the details of low-light scenes in greater definition and luminance than any other scope in the world.
