Manuals and Rebates
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Illuminated Reticle battery dead every week. This scope is very clear and feels well made. My issue is the illuminated reticle has killed 5 batteries in about as many weeks without ever being mounted to a weapon or leaving the house (except when I sent it in to have this issue fixed, which it is not). Scope came back from service, placed battery in scope, looked at reticle, made sure to turn reticle off by holding power button, week later battery is dead. I expect a fully functioning product at this price point. Disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Simply Not the Leupold Quality I was Expecting I purchased the VX-6 3-18x50mm Side Focus CDS-ZL w/ the FireDot WindPlex reticle back in October 2016 and just got around to un-boxing it today 2 months later. It was sold as a "One Time Run", so that should have been my first clue. Right out of the box I noticed the gasket around the windage turret was offset and useless (see pic). When you pop-up the windage turret, it is very loose and wobbly. Just not the "Leupold" feel I was expecting. The Zero Lock elevation turret is off by 1/2 a click no matter what I do. I have loosened the allen screws but due to the zero lock it always remains 1/2 a click off (see other pic). The variable power and parallax knobs are very difficult to turn, even after working each one back and forth 20+ times. It will be very tough with gloves on. A downside to the Zero Lock is that you cannot go down in elevation, even if you press-in the button. So when zeroing at the range seems you will have to remove the entire turret to adjust the elevation down. Overall this has been a very unpleasant experience, especially for a scope in this price range, and I have yet to even mount it. This is the most expensive scope I have purchased to date and was a major hit to my pocket book. I put in the money this time around hoping this would be a great scope to last a lifetime, but if this is "Leupold Quality" then I'll go elsewhere for far less next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from By far the best scope I've ever owned! I Bought my first Leupold in 1980. It has performed flawlessly. I now own 14 Leupolds and highly recommend them to all my friends. The VX-6 is by far the best scope I have ever saw! The VX-6 will give you an extra 15 to 30 more minutes of shooting light. No other scope on the market equals the quality of a Leupold. Thank you for a wonderful product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scope I've ever had I think their scope information is confusing. I have product number 120597 with the zero lock illuminated firedot windplex reticle. The CDS means custom dial system and I think it is the same as the BDC system (ballistic drop compensator). The scope comes with a standard click adjust elevation system. Once you get your drop figured out in number of clicks above your zero (I use 100 yd), you send them the information and they make a custom dial that you then use to replace the standard elevation dial. This dial is marked 1 (with a lock at the 100 yard), 2, 2.5, 3, etc out to 5 as I recall. To shoot at 250 yards, push to release the zero lock and crank to 2.5. You also have to tell them ALL the balistics info: temperature, elevation, ballistic coefficient, bullet weight, velocity, etc. I shoot Winchester BST 140 grain stock factory ammo as I don't hand load. I just chose the factory specs off the website and the box. All my bullet drop compensation were obtained by shooting at 100, 200, 250, 300, 350 and 400 yards (takes time and ammo) but it was worth it. I got a deer this year at 240 yards ranged with a laser rangefinder, set the dial to 2.4 and fired. The POI was within one inch of my POA. You have to take the time, ammo and energy to get your bullet ballistic drops correct, but boy is it fast. No holdover or clicking up from 100 based on the numbers on your card taped to your rifle. They also custom build and send you a wind plex card to adjust for wind if you want to do that. Wow, what a scope. Illumination clicks 5 dots to max, 5 dots back down to minimum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible CDS feature !!! I am a huge fan of Leupold scopes. I have many of them. I recently bought some scopes with the CDS (Custom Dial System). I filled out the info. I guessed at my average altitude of 1000 and 30deg F The Ammo info was good and ready to test. I am shooting a 300 weatherby magnum with weatherby 165 grain Ammo. I zeroed at 100 yard and was happy that this gun shoots so flat. I tried it out to the 500 meter range today. I range found the steel sillohette st 545 yards and gave the dial a turn to 5.5. BANG !!!! Hit.!!! The targets are painted black S.I. I saw the shot. A 5 MPH western wind to compensate for. I had the sight on its shoulder and it hit double lung on th sillohette! I was VERY HAPPY! I honestly was skeptical on how accurate these scopes would be with the custom dial system. I prefer to calculate out myself. Not anymore! I trust in CDS and could NEVER HAVE CALCULATED THAT FAST!
