Five new AR scopes are joining the VX-Freedom family in 2020. They include a 1.5-4×20 (30mm) with 223 Mil Illuminated FireDot MIL-Ring reticle, a 3-9×40 (1 inch) with 223 Mil TMR, a 4-12×40 (1 inch) with 223 Mil TMR, a 4-12×40 (30mm) 223 Mil Side Focus TMR, and a 6-18×40 (30mm) with 223 Mil Side Focus TMR.

“The VX-Freedom line is designed to deliver a scope for every possible use case or scenario,” said Vici Peters, Product Line Manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “If you’re setting up your AR-style rifle, you’re probably shooting .223 and looking for a Mil-based solution. The new VX-Freedom AR scopes deliver a pre-calibrated setup and adjustments you’re going to want, all in an affordable package that’s been designed, machined, and assembled in the very same building as the well-known Mark 5HD and Mark 8.”

All five models feature either a .223 ballistic dial or a .223 ballistic reticle, exposed 0.1-Mil adjustments, and Mil-based reticles.

The VX-Freedom line is built to deliver relentless reliability and versatility – military-spec lens coatings provide abrasion resistance, protecting the riflescope in the most challenging terrain. An ergonomically advanced power selector ring is low-profile, but provides exceptional grip and ease of use, even in the cold, wet, or when wearing gloves.

VX-Freedom riflescopes also deliver excellent performance in low-light situations and are exceptional at glare management, thanks to the proprietary Leupold Twilight Light Management System. A combination of lens coatings and physical design elements in the riflescope itself, the Twilight Light Management System helps hunters make the most of low-light conditions found at dawn and dusk.

Like all of Leupold’s riflescopes, the VX-Freedom is designed, machined, and assembled in the United States and backed by Leupold’s legendary Lifetime Guarantee.

    • Looks like someone had a Freudian slip after spending too much time on one of those other ‘special-interest’ websites.

    • Freedmom scopes are the ones that female parents demand when the action is necessary. Manufactured by Mrs Canon Whats.

  1. The VX-Freedom is meant to be their budget line and the 1.5-4×20 is nowhere near on par with even their 1.25-4×20 VX-R Patrol scope in quality. Because it is their budget line I say the PA 1-6 or new 1-8 Raptor scopes smoke them.

  2. What $?

    A pretty good AR is under a grand, very nice under $1500. Good scopes are just out of line in price to my observation. Both precision machined tools.

  3. The 1.5-4 seems like a decent lightweight scope. I just wish they had made it a true 1x at the low end.

  4. Leopold needs a good True 1-8 x 28 minimum – around $500.
    1.5 and 1.25 isn’t cutting it anymore.
