Rated 5 out of 5 by travenscroft Leupold VXR 4-12 40mm CDS AWESOME
My third Leupold scope. I have had two VX3 in the past and I have used the VXR for about three weeks now. I am very impressed with the quality of the VXR scope. I have used the scope on my FNAR to shoot about 12-13 hogs so far and it is awesome. The low light visility is excellent and the red dot stands out on the black of the hogs in extremely low light conditions. In fact you are able to shoot hogs well after legal shooting hours in Florida. You must be careful about clock watching so you don't hunt past shooting hours.

I have the VXR 4-12 CDS and the fire dot reticle lights up every time I pick the rifle up.I have compared this scope to other scopes that I have that cost three times as much at dusk and I can not tell the difference in clarity and light transmission.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TKB86 bad design
I liked the fire dot reticle concept. Gives you a better focal point when aiming. I like how you can adjust the brightness of the dot or make it an intermittent flash. The bad about this scope is the design for the battery. When you place the battery on the left side of the scope it is hard to put the cap back on, resulting in the battery popping out, or breaking the little metal clips inside where the battery goes in. Once the battery is in if it's not in correctly the fire dot won't light up. This leaves you frustrated, and without a scope.

I found the answer to my own question. Apparently, this scope has 8 levels of brightness for the firedot. I am concerned about this because I haven't heard great reviews from my friends that have non-adjustable lighted reticles. The reticles get so bright that you can't see your target in low light. I might have to give this a try.
