The ultra-lightweight construction disperses recoil to eliminate the effects of impact, while watertight seals prevent the lens from fogging. The Leupold VX-3i scope has ZeroLock functionality that prevents accidental adjustments and provides a fast return to zero.

I purchased this scope to mount on a Ruger M77 Hawkeye 6.5x55. The features that sold me on this particular scope was the CDS, the Leupold warranty, and that it is made in the USA. The build and finish of the scope is superb. Clarity and brightness is excellent. The turrets have very positive indexing, with both an audible click and feel. I added the Leupold flip-up lens caps (also highly recommended).
The CDS ZL feature was a monumental leap forward in hunting riflescope technology. Adding this feature to a 1" tube offering in the VX-3i series checks all the boxes in a lightweight hunting riflescope. I couldn't be happier!
