Leupold VX-5HD Overview

Leupold takes low-light optical performance to a new level with its 2-10x42 VX-5HD CDS-ZL2 Riflescope by combining High Definition (HD) optical glass, a Twilight Max Light management System, and a wide 42mm objective aperture. While the Twilight Max coatings allow more of blue and red light to balance colors and improve contrast in low-light conditions, the High Definition (HD) optical glass reduces color distortions and maintains true color in generated images. The exterior optical surfaces are also treated with scratch-resistant Guard-Ion Rain Shedding Coatings that repel water droplets and dirt and protect against oil stains, such as found in fingerprints. To transform aiming, the 2nd image plane contains an illuminated FireDot Duplex Reticle. The reticle's pattern features four tapered posts, thin crosshair, and a brilliant red target dot. The illumination system provides adjustable brightness and a motion-activated on/off control – the Motion Control Sensor Technology (MTS). This function deactivates illumination after 5 minutes of stillness and reactivates it when you move your gear again. Another highlight is the included Custom Dial System ZeroLock 2 Elevation Dial (CDS-ZL2), which enables a slip-free, lockable elevation settings that prevent accidental rotation away from zero. The dial features a pinch release button on the top and a 38 MOA adjustment with 1/4 MOA click values.

To protect delicate alignment of the optical elements for years of service, the housing is crafted from 6061-T6 aluminum and features a single-piece 30mm maintube. It is waterproof, fogproof, and filled with argon/krypton mixture to reduce the effect of thermal shock. Its opto-mechanics also provide a twin bias erector system to increase holding force and to reduce backlash.
