Leupold & Stevens, Inc., has announced the launch of four new models in its VX-3i riflescope line, all of which feature the company’s ZeroLock CDS dial for the first time.

Built to deliver relentless versatility, the award-winning VX-3i line appeals to hunters and shooters alike. Now it will be available featuring one of Leupold’s most popular attributes, the ZeroLock dial. Four VX-3i CDS-ZL models are shipping now. Two will feature a 30mm maintube and a side focus feature, while two others have a 1-inch maintube and no side focus. Magnification ranges from 3.5-10x to 4.5-14x, and Duplex and Wind-Plex reticles are available.

The ZeroLock feature prevents unintended adjustments and ensures an accurate return to zero. Fast and easy to use, it’s a low-profile, one revolution, and CDS-ready dial. It marks the first time that Leupold has made ZeroLock technology available at a price point below that of the popular VX- 5HD.

“The VX-3i is already one of the most versatile and successful Gold Ring riflescopes we’ve ever built,” said Vici Peters, Product Line Manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “But we wanted to give our consumers more value. The ZeroLock dial is a premium feature that we’re excited to make available on a line that’s accessible to hunters and shooters across the entire industry.”

Also included is Leupold’s proprietary CDS (Custom Dial System) feature. One free dial is included with the purchase of each CDS-compatible scope. Leupold will customize an elevation dial to match an exact load, velocity, and average atmospheric conditions. The resulting dial allows end-users to easily compensate for bullet drop and make ultra-quick adjustments on the fly.

Like all of the company’s riflescopes, the VX-3i is designed, machined, and assembled in Beaverton, Ore. It is backed by Leupold’s legendary Full Lifetime Guarantee.

  1. Just got the VX-5HD with Firedot reticle to sit atop my new Browning Hell’s Canyon Speed x-bolt in 30-06, which immediately becomes my A No. 1 go-to deer rifle. It’s predecessor A-bolt Medallion, also in 06, served with distinction for 20 years and transitioned nobly into semi-retirement with a 75-yard DRT on an 8-pt in early December. Looking forward to the next era.

  2. I bought my first Gold Ring Leupold in about ’82. All my rifles including .22LR and MZL have Leupolds. Binoculars and spotting scope Gold Ring. Just bought a Ruger #1 in 7X57 from a friend. It had a Kahles on it. I told him to keep the Kahles and knock some cash off. He said he had a vintage Leupold VXII 2X7 but he wasn’t knocking any money off. I said, “Done!” Looking at it now. Trim little package.

  3. my kid put one of these on his ar10 in 6.5 cm
    600 bucks
    the glass is amazing
    but not 3 times better than any of my 200 dollar scopes: bushnell vortex redfield primary arms
    and the eye relief and eye box is about the same

  4. Sound, it’s been a while, but I owned a couple of Bushnells when I was in high school. One Weaver. All I could afford working in a service station part time. They all failed. After I enlisted in the army I bought a Leupold. Never looked back. Your son’s Leupold is worth 3X whatever you’re looking through. Sorry.

    • Agree. I have plenty of serviceable glass but Leupolds in scopes, rangefinder, binos. Do love my Vortex Diamondbacks tho, great value, work well in Neyland Stadium box.

  5. Dollar for dollar, my VX3i is the best piece of glass that I have put on a rifle. I like the carryover of the ZL feature from the big brothers in the VX5-6 lines.

  6. Guns and rifles should use for the benefits of the human being.Every government should establish some policies and rules on using the unauthorized guns and rifles.This rifles cope is made with all high technological facilities.I am a student of social study department and I take my essay about modern technology in the society. This riflescope and other guns should not be used in war for killing human.This https://gradesfixer.com/free-essay-examples/war/will teach you to get free essay examples about war and also about topics you like most.Thanks for sharing these new features in the riles and gun!
