VX•R Patrol 1.25-4x20mm (30mm) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right at home on my AR-15 I purchased this scope approximately 2 years ago and have put it through its paces. The glass is clear, it holds its zero, and the firedot illumination is a great feature. Very fast target aquisition on a low power with the fire dot on, even though its still at 3x. The mil dot turrets with mil crosshairs is a nice addition, it is too common to find scopes with a mix of moa and mil that make things much more confusing than necessary. Ranging is done easily with the mil reticle, and adjustments can be made fast. Very pleased with it and would purchase the same series again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mid length scope!! I bought this scope for my DDM4V11 and could not be happier. The first thing I noticed was how well made it is and how nice the fit and finish are. I also immediately noticed how clear and vibrant the glass is. It's like looking through high definition! This scope immediately closed my groups up and the Firedot definitely makes a huge difference. Having multiple brightness settings really made a positive impact as well. Buy with confidence!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Optic in a compact package I mounted this optic on a custom AR15 carbine with a 14.5" barrel. I use this carbine both for home defense and to compete in Run n' Gun type competitions. The optical clarity is excellent and the adjustments are crisp and repeatable. The illumination is daytime visible and makes dusk/dawn hits much easier. Excellent scope for your AR15 carbine!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate, Reliably, Repeatable Time After Time I bought two Leupold VX-R Patrol 1.25-4x20mm FireDot scopes for both my AR's. After zeroing them at 100 yards I haven't had to tweak either of them at all. They hold Point of Aim (POA) / Point of Impact (POI) regardless of ambient temperature, which my holographic sights couldn't do. I just take the AR's out of the range bag, set them up on their bipods, dial them in for 100 yards, aim for the bull and, BOOM, the hits are exactly where they're supposed to be. With the Custom Dial System (CDS) dials installed it's even easier. The bullet drop compensation is matched to the exact load and velocity of my ammunition as well as for my typical shooting conditions. I just turn the dial to the distance I want out to 600 yards, do my part by steadying the rifle, hold the firedot on the target, and slowly squeeze the trigger, and it's a hit! That's as easy as it should be!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs perfectly Every Time I have used similar products in combat conditions, hunting conditions and in competitive use, none would stand up to the abuse I have given this scope. Rain, snow, water to about 12 feet deep, desert heat and sand and no sign of failure of any type; typical Leupold quality that you can bet you life on. It's a dandy in the game fields and the illuminated reticle is a great help when shooting in low light conditions. The lenses are clear to the edges at all power settings. I found the scope to track perfectly with the adjustments. It was easy to shoot a box by shooting a round, adjusting 10 clicks, shoot a shot and adjust 10 clicks and shoot a shot and adjust 10 clicks and shoot a shot and come back to the beginning. Overall, the best I have ever carried for its intended purpose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely sturdy scope Great scope, clear glass, precise controls. Only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars is that this scope would be perfect if it was a true 1X power rather then 1.25X on the lowest setting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good for light tactical/3 gun bought several years ago. great glass, easy to use and batter just quit on me. overall great scope. the adjustments need to be a lot stiffer for a true combat, law enforcement optic as they are easy to knock off.

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 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.

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.

FireDot Illumination

Select models are available with our exclusive FireDot Reticle System in your choice of FireDot Duplex, FireDot Circle, Ballistic FireDot, FireDot LR Duplex, FireDot 4, FireDot Pig Plex, FireDot TMR and FireDot SPR. 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 several different intensity settings (depending on model) including a high/low indicator (FireDot reticles only). 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.

Push Button Illumination

One button brightness control with a high/low indicator keeps it simple.
