About Leupold 3-9x40 Rifle Scope

• The VX-I is, simply put, the best scope in its class. No other riflescope will give you the performance and features, which now include Leupold's Ballistic Aiming System, for such a low price. The Leupold VX-I offers hunters Leupold quality and accuracy, affordability, and a lifetime guarantee...for the money, you won't find a better scope, or a better warranty. The VX-I is also available in Leupold's attractive matte black finish, as well as the traditional gloss black finish.
• Doing yeoman's service for the VX-I product group, the economically priced VX-I 3 - 9 x 40mm is the heir to the great 3 - 9x tradition started by Leupold more than 40 years ago. Its mid-range magnification levels and its moderate size make it extremely adaptable to a wide range of shooting conditions and game. This is an ideal scope for both the beginner and the experienced, budget conscious hunter.

LR Duplex: Available in Leupold VX-II and VX-I riflescopes, the LR Duplex is a new offering that will assist you with accurate, repeatable, and ethical long range shooting. It features a Duplex central aiming point for rifles zeroed at 200 yards, and calibrated hold points for 300, 400 and 500 yards.

Plain Jane Leupold


from Vancouver, BC, Canada  -  Recreational Hunter

The Rifleman is, in my opinion, designed to be an inexpensive way of putting the Leupold name on your Rifle. It neither does anything poorly or outstandingly. The optics are clear and crisp. There is no parallax adjustment and is permanently set at 100 yds limiting this scope to short to medium range shots. Adjustment of the sight requires the use of tools. When I say tools I mean a coin or cartridge rim to adjust the windage & elevation. There were a couple of annoying things about the scope though(as with the majority of Leupolds). There are no options when it comes to the sight. You can get Duplex and nothing else. There is no rubber eye guard on the the eye piece. It is an optional item for more $. Finally the one that bugs me the most, it comes with no caps. This means additional cost right away and how well were the optics protected during shipping. The Rifleman is not a bad scope nor is it a great one either. In the price/quality range you would be better served with a Nikon Prostaff or Buckmaster 3-9X40 or a Burris Fullfield II 3-9X40.Both Nikons & the Burris are available with ballistic plex sights as well as the standard duplex sight and have decent caps as well as rubber eye guards. I have owned all 4 and I can say that the Nikon & Burris easily meet the quality standards of the Rifleman. If you must have a Leupold then for the same money get a VX-I 3-9X40 which is available with a LR sight.
