Product Description

The VX®-Freedom® 4-12x40mm delivers legendary Leupold® performance and dependability in a versatile magnification range that’s ideal for mid to longer-range shots. It’s also equipped with the Leupold® Custom Dial System® (CDS), which gives you a customizable ballistics solution at your fingertips. This system is easy to install and even easier to use.

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 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.
  • 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.

I own 2 of these and a VX3 HD CDS ZL.
For the money, comparing the two, I have to say this is an amazing scope.
For about $300 more with the VX3 you only get a zero lock button and 2 more power on the high end of magnification.
If there is a difference in the glass between the two, my eyes are unable to detect it.
The CDS dial is spot on! Another excellent 5 star product from Leupold.

Upgrade for my deer rifle.
So after last season hunting up in Idaho a s making a 323 yard shot with my vx1 I decided I needed to be more accurate at longer distances.I realized after missing my first shot then making my calculations and dropping my mule deer I wanted faster distance adjustments.
Well this scope did this plain and simple.
After sighting in my 7mm at 50 then 100 yards the cds was dead on.
Also the glass is definitely clear and a upgrade over my 20 year old scope.
Best part is the old scope is on my grandpa’s old 30-06.

Amazing bang for the buck!!!
The VX-Freedom 4-12 x 40 CDS is super clear and easy to use. I can't believe you get this much scope in an entry level price. I would highly recommend this scope to anyone looking for performance, durability and value.
