Leupold & Stevens, Inc., has launched the new 1-4.5x24 VX-4.5HD Service Rifle optic, designed for use on the National Rifle Association Highpower and Civilian Marksmanship Program Service Rifle competitive shooting circuits.

Featuring a 30 mm maintube and 1-4.5 magnification, the VX-4.5HD was built to provide a top-of-the-line optic that fits within the strict standards that High Power Service Rifle competitions place on the use of optical sights.

“When the Highpower Service Rifle competitions announced that they’d be allowing the use of riflescopes—with a 4.5 magnification maximum—consumers immediately turned to us for a solution,” said Vici Peters, product line manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “The VX-4.5HD delivers everything a Service Rifle competitor could want out of their optic, and is available with reticles that have been built to drive winning scores.”

Those reticles are the Bull-Ring Post and the illuminated FireDot Bull-Ring. Both have been designed to serve the needs of Service Rifle shooters—at 4.5 power, the Bull-Ring will nearly be identical in size to the target’s bullseye. As the magnification is turned down, the white ring around the bullseye can be adjusted to help perfectly center your aim. The illumination setting on the FireDot Bull-Ring features MST (Motion Sensor Technology) that automatically deactivates the illumination after five minutes of inactivity, and reactivates it instantly as soon as movement is detected.

The VX-4.5HD features a scratch-resistant Guard-Ion rain shedding coating, meant to ensure that water, dirt, and fingerprints don’t ruin a competitor’s score. It also features Leupold’s proprietary Twilight Max HD Light Management System, which combines exceptional light transmission and glare management to provide vivid, bright, high-contrast images that will deliver relentless optical performance in low-light conditions. It also eliminates the washed-out image that can come from direct sunlight. The feature-packed VX-4.5HD is designed, machined, and assembled in the United States and backed by Leupold’s Full Lifetime Guarantee.
