  • $949.95 --> http://swfa.com/Leupold-VX-6-1-6x24-Multigun-Riflescope-P57682.aspx

    With true 1x magnification, daylight visible illuminated reticle and powerful 6X zoom ratio, the Leupold® VX®-6™ 1-6x24mm Multigun offers everything competitive shooters need, in an affordable, compact and lightweight package.

    The VX-6 Multigun offers a wide field of view and rapid target acquisition at 1x, and excellent long-range precision at higher powers. The Quantum Optical System™ with Xtended Twilight™ lens coatings and edge-blackened lead free lenses offers crystal clear images from edge-to-edge throughout the entire zoom range.

    Diamond Coat 2™ provides unsurpassed scratch resistance and increased light transmission. The extreme fast-focus eyepiece ensures a generous eyebox, superior field of view and optimal diopter adjustment in the field. Designed for close-range speed, rapid range estimation of E-type/B 27 sized targets and precision shot placement at any distance, the Firedot SPR reticle features low-profile push-button illumination which allows users to select between 12 intensity settings.

    Proprietary motion sensor technology (MST™) automatically deactivates illumination after 5 minutes of inactivity, yet reactivates instantly with any movement. A rugged 30mm maintube, twin bias spring erector system and pop-up re-zero finger click adjustments assure maximum adjustment range and precision.

    The VX-6 Multi-gun is CDS™ (Custom Dial System) capable and includes one free Custom Ballistic Dial with purchase. Second generation Argon/Krypton waterproofing resists the effects of thermal shock much more efficiently than standard nitrogen. Waterproof, shockproof and backed by the Leupold® Full Lifetime Guarantee / Leupold Golden Ring® Electronics Warranty, the Leupold VX-6 sets the standard for riflescope performance.

    No one missed the gold ring, did they.

    You'd think, with that feature being Leupold's big marketing icon, that they'd make the gold ring more pronounced.  Because, as we all know: if some is good, more is better.

    I do like the reticle.

    That's nice. I need to do a little research on that one. I may even cancel my SS 1x6 order and get that one instead if it doesn't ship soon. Wink

    I don't understand the reticle. Between 100 yard zero and 500 yards is a little more than 2.5 mils with alot of cartridges. So how does this reticle with 2.5 mils marks help with anything? Hard to imagine a need for a six power scope that uses 10 or 15 mils of holdover. A standard mildot would have been more useful.

    I am running a 200 yard zero
    the 2.5 mil has mark is my 500 yard hold

    I have worked out the holds for the in between ranges
    It's for 3 gun which usually means 18" targets, not that hard to hit

    ccoker, exactly my point.  It's a three gun scope, so why bother with having 10, 12.5, and 15 mil holds.  You will never use them on a scope meant for 3 gun.  And even though you can figure out the holds, why not just a simple 1 mil hash and maybe a larger 2 mil hash.  It's still simple and much more useful.

    What's the difference between the VX6 and the MK6?  Is the glass that much better on the MK6 or is it just a ruggedized version of the VX6?
     
    The VX6 looks like the cat's meow and I prefer the reticle pattern.
     
    And does anyone know what the battery life is for the daylight-visible illumination on the VX6?

    Mark VI is 34mm tube, FFP (vs SFP of the VX-6) and heavier/beefier
     
    I was pleasantly surprised at the glass on the VX-6 even compared to my S&B 1.5-6x42 testing in low to no light.
     
    Don't know the battery specs offhand, but it will go to sleep after 5 minutes of inactivity and turn back on at the slightest movement.
     
    Mine is a pre-production unit that got sent to me for testing and providing feedback and I am very happy with it.  Shooting plates at 500 yards the glass has nice resolution and I can call my own shots on a 5.56

    I am just wondering as I am not much of a tactical scope guy,if you have the center dot zeroed for 200 yards just where do you hold for 300,400 yards.I would like to understand better from people who shoot alot with these scopes would be helpful. I do like this scope, I hear that the battery life is around 100 hours or more not sure if that is a fact

    ques. 1   how many revolutions do you have to turn the dial to transition from 1 to 6 power?



    ques. 2    i have a rock river arms lar pds carbine with the 3 rail..  i would like to co-witness this with iron sights.  what mount and site combo would be recommended.  everything will be on the same top rail.  i wanted the surefire quick transition iron sights, but they are not compatible since it would interfere with the charging handle located on the front of the rifle.

    http://www.rockriverarms.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_id=442

    there is a link to my rifle with the tri rail.  any suggestions for configuration welcome.

    thanks

    While you can "Co-Witness" iron sights with an Aimpoint or an EOTech and a few othe red dots. The same thing does not work well for traditional optics. Surefire has some irons that lay 45degrees to the right and you can tip the rifle to go to irons.  I prefer La Rue mounts but most of the other guys here prefer the BOBRO mount, which also is a very good mount, I just have not had one.    Also I am a big fan of the fixed 6x Super Sniper like this demo one:
