While some folks have issues with non-magnified optics, the benefits of red dot scopes can be numerous. Red dots are fast, easy to use and great for close-quarter encounters. However, shooters can also use red dots for longer shots, making these optics extremely versatile. Now shooters have a new option in the Leupold VX-Freedom Red Dot sight.
“Consumers have been asking for an American-made, value-priced red dot for as long as we’ve been in the marketplace,” said Tim Lesser, Vice President of Product Development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “The Freedom RDS delivers on that task and more, bringing with it innovative features like the custom BDC elevation turret, allowing end-users to easily dial up for longer shots.”
Leupold VX-Freedom Red Dot Sight Features
Leupold built these sights for recreational shooters and hunters alike in two distinct models. One features precision 1/4-MOA click adjustments, while the other has an exposed BDC elevation turret that ships with measurements out to 500 yards for standard 55-grain .223 Rem. ammunition.
The company designed these sights to install easily with an included mount that sits at the optimal sight height for use on AR-style rifles. However, shooters can also mount these scopes using any 34mm rings.
Both models feature a 1 MOA dot reticle that’s supported by Leupold’s battery-saving Motion Sensor Technology. This puts the sight into a battery-saving standby mode after five minutes of inactivity. However, when the MST detects motion, it instantly activates the sight.
Additionally, both units feature scratch-resistant lenses and Leupold’s Twilight Red Dot System. This delivers color consistency and clarity for shooting in all conditions. The units are also 100 percent fogproof and waterproof and feature 80-MOA of adjustment in both elevation and windage. Leupold also builds these scopes in the U.S., and backs them with a Full Lifetime Guarantee.
