Built around Leupold’s Advanced Optical System, the VX-Freedom 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 guaranteed to get the job done every time. 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.
  • Custom Dial System Compatible
    • Leupold’s Custom Dial System® (CDS®) gives you the ability to customize your turret (adjustment dial) to your exact ballistics and environmental conditions. Once your new custom dial is installed, simply range the target, turn the dial to that number, and aim dead on.
  • Lockable Eyepiece
    • A traditional eyepiece lock ring allows you to lock in a focus setting that is best for your eye.
  • 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.
  • Scratch Resistant Lenses
    • Hardened surface coatings are added to meet extreme military standards in scratch resistance and added lens protection.
  • Zero Stop
    • The ZeroStop system creates a backstop when returning the dial back to zero, so you don’t accidently turn the dial a full revolution in the wrong direction.
  • 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.
  • Tri-MOA Reticle
    • Proprietary Leupold® design
    • Based off the T-MOA® reticle
    • Provided hash marks in 1 MOA increments
