The VX®-3i 1.5-5x20mm is one of the most popular dangerous game/safari scopes in the world. From tight brush to open savannahs, the 1.5-5x magnification is ideal for shooting at a variety of distances. And at only 9.3 ounces, it's built for long days in the wild.

What do hunters want most in a scope? Outstanding performance in low-light conditions and an incredibly tough, lightweight design. The VX®-3i delivers this and more. Our Twilight Max® Light Management System lets you see details others can't in those crucial low-light situations at the beginning and the end of the day. Everything we put into the VX-3i is there to help you tag out. Like all Leupold riflescopes, it's designed, machined, and assembled in the USA and guaranteed for life.

Features
A 3:1 zoom ratio is very common in many scope models. It gives you 3 times more magnification at high power than at low power (model magnification ranges are available in powers of 3x: 1.5-5, 2.5-8, 3-9, 3.5-10, etc.), so you can dial your power down for close encounters or all of the way up for long-range shots.
The Twilight Max® Light Management Systems offers a clearer, brighter image with three main benefits: Better Light Transmission - Maximizes more ambient light in low-light environments. Better Glare Management - Reduces more glare through additional lens coatings and minimizes image washout caused by stray light. Better Contrast & Resolution - Creates a clearer image using premium edge-to-edge lens prescriptions and HD coatings.
In Second Focal Plane (rear focal plane) scopes, the reticle stays the same size while the target grows and shrinks when you adjust the magnification. These reticles are ideal for lowlight hunting situations and in scopes that don't utilize hash marks for range estimation.
Hardened surface coatings are added to meet extreme military standards in scratch resistance and added lens protection.
Leupold pioneered modern waterproof and fogproof technology using advanced internal gasses and sealing methods that withstand extreme temperatures, elevation changes, and shocks, so the internals of the optics stay moisture free and crystal clear for life.
