    Can the VX5HD be had in Mil from custom shop?

  2. Taron Young on November 9, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    When will the RDS be available. Will you offer a pre-order?

  3. Nick Flores on November 9, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Will all of the leupold line of rifle scopes hold up to the scar 17?

    leupold really screwed the pooch on rifle scopes, dont see them in prs or any other sport … really got to get their shit together.

    When will the VX5-HD higher power models be released? I’m planning on purchasing a VX5-HD this summer.

    The MC is cool, I like him, but not unlike so too many interviewers across the board, he’s over the top, performing, the clock is ticking, as best he can, to do a good job and make the interview come off, I get it, but he left Vicky in the dust there, in a blurr of enthusiasm, I know she had much more ti say. Hey Leupold, bring Vicky back! I want to learn about her part in the company – without promotional pressure. Good optics and good people – after all, where do good products come from?.

    Will the RDS be astigmatism friendly. Meaning is the reticle etched onto the glass

  8. Orrin Pope on November 9, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    What will the price point be on the VX-5HD 4-20

  9. Kevin Turner on November 9, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    Your new product line up hits the mark. These scopes are right on for what I was hoping to see out of Leupold!

    Great to see the new tactical model, however, in these scopes when you say it has 3 turns (or any number) of rotation how many MILLS/MOA are per rotation??? Your VX5 or VX6 has a 30mm tube with plenty of adjustments but only "restricted" rotation after zero stop set… Thank you for your time…

    Where does the glass come from on the vx 3hd model? If it’s from anywhere other than China I’m ok with that.

  12. MegaGouch on November 9, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    Please update the TMR reticle, with the PR-1 moa now in the Mark 5hds the TMR looks extremely out dated, I hope a PR-1 mil is on the way.

    I really wish that 4-20×52 was a 30mm tube not 34mm, it looks like you’ve taken the same chassis of the VX6 4-24, which is understandable but as most hunting scopes are 30mm (or 1") it makes changing to the 4-20 more hassle than it needs to be.
    Also a MIL version of the VX5hd range would be great and parallax down to 25 yards.

    most likely going to buy the new RDS……….I like the fact that it’s a 1 min. dot and the BDC is a nice touch……..I could see getting another cap with BDC for a heavier bullet 69 grain as well……..great stuff…thumbs up….
