Top 5 LPVO Scopes

An LPVO is a Low Power Variable Optic, meaning that the minimum magnification is 1x and the maximum magnification is usually at least 4x. LPVO's are quickly becoming the go-to optic for tactical rifles like an AR-15. They offer the benefits of a red dot for close quarters while also providing the extra magnification when its needed at longer ranges. Most LPVO's will be 1-6x but recently manufacturers have been releasing 1-10x scopes. This list has everything from our top of the line LPVO's to some of our best budget LPVO options. Check out our full list of LPVO optics here.

Awesome 1X10 Scope!!

My very first LPVO was a Vortex Viper 1X4, descent and great as a red dot. Upgraded to the Vortex Razor 1X6 Jerry Miculek edition. Huge improvement over the viper. Glass clarity was way better. Eye relief was a big improvement. Worth every penny. That was my main LPVO for my rifle for a long time. As soon as I heard they were gonna start to release the Vortex Razor 1X10 LPVO soon. I knew I had to sell my Gen 2 Razor and focus on buying the Gen 3 Razor. Knew it was gonna be sold out everywhere and had to wait. Finally got a chance to buy it off Midway USA. They had the one I wanted the MRAD edition. I didn't pause or stop to think about it. I bought it ASAP and was shipped out ASAP. Mounted to my rifle and zero it in. What a difference and upgrade this is from the Razor Gen 2. Glad to see Vortex stepped up there game and went a step further on creating this Gen 3 Razor. Now you have X10 magnification, the throw lever is easier to turn than there Gen 2 version, comes now with the throw lever in the box, you ...

What Customers Are Saying

New Tango-MSR 1-10xx28mm

Scope looks incredibly well built. Everything has a very good feel to it. Will get it zeroed tomorrow but I would say Sig did a great job on this, and I don't expect there to be any issues after zero. Compared to my vortex viper PST Gen II I feel confident this is Sig scope is a notch above the vortex. I've never been a big Horse shoe reticle guy, but with all the windage marks I feel this will stay right atop my MCX Virtus.

Leupold VX-5HD CDS-ZL2 Rifle Scope

The VX-5HD is taking optical performance to a whole new level. Leupold gave it a High-Definition optical system for sharp clarity, and the Twilight Max Light Management System for great low-light performance, giving hunters a visible advantage at dawn and dusk when game is on the move. The 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 re-zero. All VX-5HD CDS-ZL2 riflescopes include one free Custom Ballistic Dial with purchase.

Features

  • CDS-ZL2 Elevation and Pop-up re-zero windage dials
  • Guard-ion lens coating sheds water, dirt and fingerprints
  • Bungee style lens covers included


What Customers Are Saying

Awesome scope

Ordered one with the Boone and Crocket reticle to top my Christensen Arms 300 RUM. Mounted it on a Nighforce one piece 20 moa rail in Burris signature rings. The scope has awesome glass as usual from Leupold. The weight is also less than the comparable sized Nightforce scope which helps make for a nice light rifle. No sense in payin exta for a carbon fiber wrapped barrel just to put a tank of a scope on top. So far I've shot it 50 times and scope hasn't moved at all. I love this scope and I'm thinking about getting another one for my 338 RUM to replace the 3.5-10 Leupold I have on that rifle.

It's a keeper

Moving out to longer distances with a stock AR platform and this has allowed me to dial in 200 yards with ease. Looking forward to pushing out to our range max of 600 yards in the future.
