The Leupold VX-R Zombie Riflescope

The Leupold VX-R Zombie RiflescopeThe firearm industry hasn't been subtle about trying to get its customers to prepare for a zombie-apocalypse, and it's hard not to wonder if someone has some inside information we're not privy to. That said, a neat find from the opening day of SHOT Show is Leupold's VX-R Zombie Riflescope.

A play on the company's 1.25-4x20mm Patrol line, the VX-R Zombie Riflescope delivers all of Leupold's best perks—from its ability to make precision finger click adjustments and second generation Argon/Krypton waterproofing right on down to the standard Leupol Lifetime Guarantee.

The scope embraces its name by incorporating some fancy design work on its caps—a zombie head on one, and brains on other... because what's a zombie analogy without brains?

Haha is this for real? There's actually zombie artwork on the scope from the factory? or is it a custom decal? Good on Leupol coming up with this, they are normally pretty conservative so this is pretty out of the box. I'm going to have to come up with a 'zombie' section for my article. Precision shooting... check... varmint hunting... check... zombie? Nope. Going to have to buy this scope now!

It's a standard scope, the same VX-R, great scope, that comes with metal lens caps, and a little paint to make it "zombie", standard crosshairs, great deal, if you bought just the VX-R, it's another $80 bucks for the lens caps, so why not? A little nail polish remover, and it's a VX-R!!! Get over it gun-banners!!

I just purchased this scope. The one I bought has a whole zombie inside the flip up cap not just a head. So far it looks like its going to be an excellent addition to my AR. I'm hoping the good folks at Leupold will make a turret calibrated for the 300aac blackout.

Just to clarify, the reticle is standard crosshair with a circle and illuminated green dot, no head, it's great quality for the money, and comes with the flip up lens caps.

This is an awesome scope! I saw it today and looked through it. I want it for my AR :) Oh and those are the lens covers for it. It is meant to be fun and if the gun banners don't like it, they definitely won't like the rest of the Zombie Slayer gear!

Jay, I think it looks like a zombie which would be a potential attacker. I dont think anyone would argue for zombie rights when it comes to the zombie apocalypse. Sorzy: that's not the reticle, thats the lens cap...

And if that's the reticle, it seems to me, and it stands to reason, it's going to interfere with the shooters sight picture? I'll pass. The let's get in on the zombie market craze to make a buck while we can is getting old. To and for me anyhow. And I'd have to agree with Jay. Crosshairs on a head will only be used for and by the anti-gun groups. I mean, didn't Sarah Palin get slammed for using the target word or a target or because she said target something or something like that a year or two back? And didn't they try and demonize her for it because something happened? In fact, wasn't it Sarah Palin and what she'd said or because she had a target or something and they tried to say what she said or did and rhetoric like that is what got Gabriel Gifford shot? Come on. Just make quality made in the U.S.A product at a decent price and that will last and it will not only sell itself but the best advertisement there is, word of mouth, will also sell it for you.

Cross hairs zeroing in on what appears to be a human head. Looks like more ammo for the gun banners to me.
