Leupold & Stevens, Inc., has introduced its new line of VX-Freedom lineof entry-level riflescopes, which the company says is designed for the hunter seeking elite optical performance at a budget-friendly price.

The VX-Freedom features the company’s Twilight Light Management System, which should help achieve less glare and higher performance in low-light conditions, giving hunters the opportunity to make the most of their day afield from first to last light. Along with being waterproof and fogproof, the VX-Freedom’s military-spec outer lens surfaces are scratch resistant, offering protection in all hunting conditions.

“Our new VX-Freedom line delivers the versatility and performance hunters and shooters have come to expect from the Leupold brand, all while remaining budget-friendly,” said Tim Lesser, vice president of product development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Whether you’re looking for your first scope or your fortieth, there will be a VX-Freedom that suits your needs—all sporting our legendary gold ring.”

New models are available in 1.5-4x20mm, 2-7x33mm, 3x9-40mm, 3x9-50mm and 4-12x40mm, all offering second focal plane reticles and 1-inch maintubes. The new line will offer muzzleloader, rimfire and centerfire options. Duplex, Pig-Plex and the company’s new Rimfire MOA, Tri-MOA and UltimateSlam reticles will also be available.

The VX-Freedom line has an MSRP of $234.99-$389.99. For more information, go to leupold.com.

BEAVERTON, Ore. — Leupold & Stevens, Inc. has introduced the VX®-Freedom™ line, 
a new series of riflescopes that will deliver relentless reliability and elite optical performance at a price point that’s impossible to disagree with – especially given that the line is designed, machined, and assembled in the United States.

Military-spec lens coatings provide abrasion resistance, protecting the riflescope in the most challenging terrain. An ergonomically advanced power selector ring is low-profile, but provides exceptional grip and ease of use, even in the cold, wet or when wearing gloves.

The VX-Freedom series delivers excellent performance in low-light situations and is exceptional at glare management, thanks to the proprietary Leupold® Twilight Light Management System. A combination of lens coatings and physical design elements in the riflescope itself, the Twilight Light Management System helps hunters make the most of low-light conditions found at dawn and dusk.

“Our new VX-Freedom line delivers the versatility and performance hunters and shooters have come to expect from the Leupold brand, all while remaining budget-friendly,” said Tim Lesser, vice president of product development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Whether you’re looking for your first scope or your fortieth, there will be a VX-Freedom that suits your needs – all sporting our legendary gold ring.”

The VX-Freedom will initially be available in some of the industry’s most popular magnification ranges, such as 1.5-4x20, 2-7x33, 3-9x40, 3-9x50, 4-12x40. All VX-Freedom models offer a second focal plane reticle and 1-inch maintube. The series will support muzzleloader, rimfire and centerfire options for consumers. Duplex®, Pig-Plex and the new Rimfire MOA, Tri-MOA and UltimateSlam reticles will be available. MSRP: $234.99-389.99.

The VX-Freedom series is everything consumers expect from a Leupold: designed machined, and assembled in the Oregon factory, tested to the same ruggedness standards as top-tier riflescopes, and guaranteed for a lifetime of performance.

For more information on Leupold® products, please visit us at Leupold.com.

Founded in Oregon more than a century ago, Leupold & Stevens, Inc. is a fifth generation, family owned company that designs, machines and assembles its riflescopes, mounting systems and tactical/Gold Ring® spotting scopes in the USA. The product lines include rifle, handgun and spotting scopes; binoculars; rangefinders; mounting systems; and optical tools, accessories and Pro Gear.

I read that Leupold was consolidating the VX1 and VX2 lines into this. The big question is it VX2 glass? And does it replace or complement the rifleman scope?

A few places have them for preorder like (competitor). I wonder if these are worth buying over redfield revolutions. they are priced the same, but the freedom's marketing suggests the lenses are better than the rifleman. With their "twilight management". I wonder if that "twilight management" is the same as the vx-3's "extended" twilight management or the vx-3i's "Max" twilight management. Are those two even different??

What they seem to be hiding is what coating these new scopes will have. they just keep saying "military grade" coatings. Not sure if that is their multicoat 4 or a diamondcoat?

Im not sure if these are worth getting excited about. What i would hope is that these are a clear step up from the rifleman but at a cheaper price. But that seems too good to be true.

Not sure if these are worth waiting for.

Phil, that I'm not sure of. I was hoping to see one at the Dallas Safari Club, but they didn't have it.

I am glad they consolidating product lines.  They had a little too many of what is basically the same design.

All great questions. It was something I was hoping to contrast while at the Dallas Safari Club show, but sadly they didn't have any to view.
