A century in the making, the new Leupold Golden Ring VX-7 was worth the wait.  Destined to be an all-American classic, this is a true world-class hunting riflescope, incorporating bold new technology with a true love of the hunting spirit.  The new Xtended Twilight Lens System features special lens coatings that optimize the wavelengths of light found in lo-light hunting conditions...brightness, crispness and clarity that is, in a word, astonishing.  Lead-free glass lenses are the highest purity, with DiamondCoat 2 lens protection to deliver scratch resistance that exceeds military specifications and provides the highest definition image.  An exclusive SpeedDial adjustment system makes tuning the scope to the conditions faster, easier and more precise than ever before.  And for an extra measure of value, there is also the Golden Ring Custom Care Package.  Should your scope ever need service, a unique and exclusive service was developed to make the process incredibly fast, easy and seamless.  You get priority assignment, UPS overnight call tags, a loaner scope sent anywhere in the world, 24-hour turnaround, and free engraving or BDC dial with the purchase of your VX-7.  An extraordinary service program for an extraordinary riflescope.  The new VX-7....only from Leupold.

 

 

 

                                    

 

Built on a 30mm tube with an entirely new lens system named XTR (Xtended Twilight Lens), new SpeedDial adjustment system, fast focus ocular and Gen. II argon/krypton waterproofing system.  Available in:

 

1.5-6x24.....$1299.95

2.5-10x45.....$1399.95

3.5-14x50.....$1499.95

3.5-14x56 Long Range (VX-L type objective).....$1699.95

4.5-18x56 Long Range (VX-L type objective).....$1799.95

If they get rid of the first number in the price, I am in.

Chris, Do you have any idea how the New Leupold VX-7 would stack up to a S&B Zenith 50mm, Zeiss Diavari 50mm, or a Khales CL  52mm in low light hunting?

Better look out folks, I heard that Leupold has shared intelegance with Simmons and VW with the

help of German engineers for this effort, nothing confirmed yet. We shall know the truth within little

time.

Thanks for the info, Chris. Koshkin is right about dumping the digit. This makes those Kahles 1.1-4x24 C on the Sample List at $699 look even better.

Sure don't, the scopes don't even exist yet in production form.

Chris,

 

I hope you faxed a copy of your price sheet for  Kahles, S&B, and others ect. to whom ever sent you the information.   If they want to keep market share then they have to improve optical clarity and hold the line on prices. The market is as good as it is going to get for them for a long while.  In couple of years thier military contract could be put on hold.  The domestic market is going to contract, due to economic cycles.  With that said I think that the riflescope market will trend towards the higher end, as fewer people hunt, but those who do will spend more.

Sage observations.  Thanks for sharing.
