Leupold VX-5HD 3-15x56mm CDS-ZL2 Firedot Duplex



The Leupold VX-5HD 3-15x56mm CDS-ZL2 Firedot Duplex Riflescope is taking optical performance to a whole new level. We gave it a High-Definition optical system for sharpened clarity, and the Twilight Max™ Light Management System for even greater low-light performance, giving hunters a visible advantage at dawn and dusk when the biggest game is on the move. The new CDS-ZL2 (Custom Dial System ZeroLock 2) elevation dial locks in place so it cannot be inadvertently rotated off zero. A mere press of a button will allow the user to dial up two turns of elevation, if necessary. On the 2nd revolution of the elevation dial, the button sinks in to show you are on the 2nd turn so you can dial for extended ranges and never lose your place. The covered pop-up windage dial provides fast and accurate sight-in and easy rezero. All VX-5HD CDS-ZL2 riflescopes include one free Custom Ballistic Dial with purchase. FireDot illuminated reticles provide daylight bright, red dot-like performance with an easy to use 1 button intensity adjustment.

Let there be light. The Leupold VX-5HD 3-15x56mm CDS-ZL2 Firedot Duplex Riflescope gives you all the flexibility of its 44mm counterpart but with the 56mm objective bell, so it maximizes as much exit pupil light as your eye can handle. From the mountains to the open plains to range day, this scope can dominate.
Plus, it comes with our proprietary Firedot® illumination to give you a bright, intuitive aiming point that won't get lost in low-light conditions.

Again, the VX-5HD defines relentless versatility. Its wide magnification ranges give hunters and shooters the ability to adapt to any environment. Built around Leupold’s Professional-Grade Optical System, it offers unmatched light transmission that’s designed to outperform in the most challenging lighting conditions. Its industry leading glare reduction provides a clear image in harsh, direct light, while the resolution and clarity will meet the demands of any professional guide or shooter in the field. And when it’s time to pull the trigger, you’ll want the accuracy and additional elevation that the CDS® ZeroLock® 2 dial delivers.

We do this because we believe in superior quality and craftsmanship, and we’re confident your Leupold won’t let you down.


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,  adjustments to the design are performed. Then it is tested again. again.


From torrential downpours to crossing rivers, you’ll never have to worry about a Leupold optic leaking or fogging up. Proprietary gas blend and seals are tested to a 33-foot depth and a multitude of pressure changes.


Leupold makes sure optics perform at the highest level in the harshest conditions by ensuring they will survive from -40 degrees Fahrenheit all the way up to 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
