A great match for today's hard-hitting, heavy-kicking handguns, the Leupold VX-3 2.5 - 8 x 32 Handgun Scope features the Xtended Twilight Lens System, which utilizes index-matched glass with wavelength-specific lens coatings designed to help optimize the transmission of low-light wavelengths. The exterior lens surfaces are treated with DiamondCoat 2, while the classic/standard lockable eyepiece is designed with a low-profile lock ring to help make reticle focusing easy to achieve and maintain. Micro-friction 1/4 MOA offers finger click adjustments for windage and elevation.

Could have been betterI have two of these scopes on 6.5x47 lapua custom xp-100's. The clarity is good but both suffered from severe parallax problems, both went back to Leupold and are now much better. My shooting is out to 300 yds, target/silhouette so lack of parallax is a huge problem. I have since gone to a Burris 3-12x32 on one pistol, adjustable parallax, better reticle for my usage, a little shorter eye relief for my shorter arms and good clarity. The Leupold is a nice scope but could use a little more power and features to warrant it's premium price.

Clarity is awesome. Durability is excellent!I own two of these scopes one on a 44 magum Super Redhawk. The other on a 25-06 Thompson Center Encore pistol.

UndecidedSo far the scope has held the zero on my S&W 460. I have fired it maybe 150 times with no complaints other than when I turn the power up, there is a speck of dirt or scratch on the inside of the lens and is right in the crosshairs. Given the cost of the scope, I would not expect this. This is my first Leupold scope and have not yet contacted the factory to see what they will do to fix it.

Highest quality optics of any handgun scopeI own 14 of these beauties and many of my friends have switched to this scope. They are all glad they did. Plus hoe can you beat MADE IN THE USA and a lifetime guarantee.
