    Leupold VX-3 Handgun Scope 2.5-8x32mm

    With Leupold Handgun scopes, you not only eliminate the need to focus on the front sight, you totally eliminate the inaccuracy of a handgun’s short sight radius. All that’s left is you, the crosshairs, and the game. These scopes can take a beating, too. They’re tested to the same harsh standards as all other Leupold scopes.

    Features and Benefits of the Leupold Handgun Scope:

    • 1/4 MOA Finger Click
      • 1/4 MOA precision finger click adjustments for windage and elevation offer absolute repeatability and dependability over a lifetime of extreme use.
    • Extended Eye Relief
      • Provides just the right eye relief for scout style rifles
    • One inch Maintube
      • Ultra-lightweight 1-inch maintube provides weight savings, durability, and a classic look
    • Punisher Tested
      • Each scope design has to survive 5,000 impacts on the Punisher, Leupold’s recoil simulation machine. The force of each impact is 3x the recoil of a .308 rifle. If the scope doesn’t perform in any way during the tests, we make adjustments to the design and test it again.
    • Rear Focal Plane (RFP)
      • Rear focal plane reticles remain fine and minimally cover the target at high power. Subtensions change with zoom, allowing tuning of ballistic reticles.  
    • Scratch Resistant Lenses
      • Extreme Military-Standard scratch resistance for added protection
    • Twilight Max Light Management System
      • See more in less light with Twilight Max Light
      • Management System
        • - Adds up to 20 extra minutes of shooting light
        • - Eliminates 85% more glare-producing stray light than competitors
      • - Premium edge-to-edge lens clarity
    • Ultra-Lightweight Design
      • Disperses recoil energy for unrivaled durability and performance with ultra-lightweight construction
    • Waterproof & Fogproof
      • Absolute waterproof and fogproof integrity means it's ready to perform in the field, in all conditions.

    Excellent!

    First of all, I love Leupold scopes, and there are many good reasons. This handgun scope was on my "get this soon" list for quite a while. It's super accurate on my 6" SW686. I was able to hit a golf ball from a rest at 50 yards after about 100 shots zeroing and getting the feel of it. Use lower power and keep both eyes open. If you are looking for a hunting/target scope, this is a great choice.

    Eye relief was an issue for me

    I bought this Leupold handgun scope to use on my S&W 460 XVR Magnum. I used it to hunt in South Africa taking 2 cape buffalo, crocodile, southern roan, gemsbok, red duiker and a giraffe.It worked well to acquire the target to get the first shots. However, my follow up shot on the cape buffalo had to be point and shoot method as I could not reacquire the target quickly. Fortunately, the first shot was fatal. The first shot was at 88 yards, and the point and shoot second shot broke his right rear leg. I would not want to have to shoot a charging buffalo at close range. The eye relief is an issue for this hunter. I shot many times at the range before I left, but we all know it's just not the same condition. The scope stood up very well to the battering it took from Buffalo Bore 300 grain mono metal bullets. The recoil was significant but manageable.

    Great Handgun Scope - Eye Relief No Issue

    5 out of 5
    Location:
    Date: April 27, 2020

    I went back and forth between the Leupold VX 3 handgun scope and the 4x scope. Eye relief on this scope is 15". Eye relief on the 4x is 18" inches. I mounted it with Leupold super high Mark 4 1" steel rings on an S&W Model 41. Note the scope is too short of using the Leupold uni-mount with the rings already on the base. Some reviews did not like the eye relief. I had no problem with it, and frankly, the 18-inch eye relief would have been a bit long for my application. More expensive than many, but you get Leupold quality and the ability to use 2.5x to 8x depending on your situation. Well worth the extra even if you only use the 8x for scanning. I noticed very little change, if any, in eye relief between the 2.5 power and the 8x power. Frankly, I paid a couple of dollars more ordering from Brownell's but was concerned about "knock off" units, and I knew Brownell's would have the real deal.

    superior quality

    This scope is of superior quality and performance. On my super Redhawk 7.5 inches barrel, it fits perfectly and looks terrific. I possess the Weigand scope bracket to the 44 mags super Redhawk. I'd have to say Leopold did nicely in building this scope. It's a bit less than 10 inches in length. I desired the best for me out in the forests revolver, and that is surely it for me. The field of view changes because it's a variable magnification scope. It extends from 2.5X up to 8X. It's quite easy to look through and get a quick view image due to the large diameter lenses. The 24 K gold ring and medallion are a nice touch for each of you gold bugs there. The coat on the Matt Black version reminds me of a diamond ion bond coating that resists scratches. It could be a bit large for really short revolvers and pistols. Leopold also makes shorter ones too. I enjoy that it adds weight to my 44 magnum helping reduce muzzle flip. You get what you pay for with this scope. Truly awesome and professional.
