Leupold’s New VX-R Patrol Has Fiber-Optic Illuminated Reticle

( — Leupold’s new VX-R™ Patrol riflescope features proprietary powered fiber optic technology in an FireDot reticle that provides exceptional target acquisition in low light.

The VX-R Patrol is available in a 1.25-4x20mm model with the FireDot Special Purpose Reticle (SPR®) and a 3-9x40mm model with the FireDot Tactical Milling Reticle® (TMR®).

“Our new VX-R Patrol riflescope offers true daylight-capable illumination and long battery life, along with a sleek design that reduces bulk atop the rifle,” said Pat Mundy, communications manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc.

The VX-R Patrol has a single push-button illumination system with Leupold’s own Motion Sensor Technology (MST™). A touch of the button illuminates the dot within the reticle. By repeatedly pressing the button, the user can select between eight different intensity settings including a high-low indicator, which flashes when either the maximum or minimum intensity is reached.

After five minutes of inactivity, the illumination system automatically switches to stand-by mode, but reactivates at the same intensity setting whenever the rifle is moved. This helps extend battery life and, by reducing movement, allows the shooter to maintain greater stealth in the field.
