The VX®-Freedom® 3-9x50mm delivers legendary Leupold® performance and dependability for hunters and shooters in one of the most popular magnification ranges available, with the added benefit of a larger objective for better light transmission. This rugged and lightweight riflescope can get the job done on whatever rifle you have in your safe.

It comes with our proprietary Firedot® illumination to give you a bright, intuitive aiming point that won’t get lost in low-light conditions. It’s also built around Leupold’s Advanced Optical System, which delivers tried and true light transmission, best in class glare reduction in harsh light, and the resolution and clarity that recreational sportsmen and sportswomen demand.

The VX-Freedom is 100% waterproof and fogproof. And like all Leupold® riflescopes, it’s designed, machined, and assembled in the USA and guaranteed for life.


  • 3:1 Zoom Ratio
    • A 3:1 zoom ratio is very common in many scope models. It gives you 3 times more magnification at high power than at low power (model magnification ranges are available in powers of 3x: 1.5-5, 2.5-8, 3-9, 3.5-10, etc.), so you can dial your power down for close encounters or all of the way up for long-range shots.
  • Advanced Optical System
    • Leupold’s Advanced Optical System offers tried and true light transmission for extended glassing sessions, best in class glare reduction in harsh light, and the resolution and clarity that recreational sportsmen and sportswomen demand.
  • Second Focal Plane
    • In Second Focal Plane (rear focal plane) scopes, the reticle stays the same size while the target grows and shrinks when you adjust the magnification. These reticles are ideal for lowlight hunting situations and in scopes that don’t utilize hash marks for range estimation.
  • Scratch Resistant Lenses
    • Hardened surface coatings are added to meet extreme military standards in scratch resistance and added lens protection.
  • Illuminated
    • This scopes comes with an illuminated reticle, which can help you get on target faster in low-light situations.
  • Motion Sensor Technology (MST)
    • Motion Sensor Technology (MST™) extends battery life by automatically deactivating illuminated reticles after five minutes of inactivity and then reactivates instantly as soon as movement is detected.
  • Waterproof, Fogproof, & Shockproof
    • Leupold pioneered modern waterproof and fogproof technology using advanced internal gasses and sealing methods that withstand extreme temperatures, elevation changes, and shocks, so the internals of the optics stay moisture free and crystal clear for life.
