Leupold vs. Nightforce Review

Your Shooting Experience Is Determined By Your Rifle

A sigh. Days are gone when the louder the shot, confirmed a firm target. A great shooting experience today means a great rifle to do the job with. Which silently calls for the readiness to invest a huge amount. The market is swamped with all kinds of rifles, designed to fit varying individual needs. But it is the same market that you need to realize, holds some of the best rifles for a great shooting experience. A sporting experience except, with a killer rifle to make your day.

Leupold VX-1

Leupold VX-1 is the best in its class. Your shooting experience with this rifle will make you forget the price you bought it for. Nothing as hitting a target just with the proficiency of a rifle lens and design. The Leupold is designed to suit different scopes. This is to enhance accuracy based on the varying scopes. It is built in with to provide sight image quality even in low light conditions. Whether in the twilight, in the fog you can hit a target with ease, thanks the multi-coat lens that enhances and clarifies the received light rays through the scope.

No, you will not squint your way to hit jackpot. Just have a strategic pose, hold your rifle right and aim. The rest is catered for.


The Leupold is both waterproof and weatherproof. Leupold users are among the finest shooters around. The rifle comes with an alumina compatible to adopt to changing condition during a competition. Furthermore, lightweight for the silhouette scopes. You can never be too sure with the weather you know. Leupold’s weatherproof sustainability has got you covered.

Contrast and proper aiming

A strategic pose will earn you a better shot than just an aim. Although again, both pose and aim will be important in shooting. Sometimes you will need to move around, to get a sharper focus for your target. In the midst of finding ground you may lose your target. However, this is not the case when using a Leupold rifle. The rifle has different scopes that offer eye relief and room for allowing movement. This means your target is still within focus, unless you choose to shift ground entirely outside the built in space.

With its sharp focus, and eye relief it offers you comfortability, as well as proper aiming during your outdoor activities.


The Leupold passes through a series of stringent tests for durability. Here, factors such as waterproof, weatherproof, fog proof and vibration resistance are put to the test, to satisfy the end target user.

Leupold VX-1 3-9x40 Waterproof Riflescope


  • Waterproof and weatherproof
  • ​Great lens quality
  • Sharp focus and clarity


  • Has no mil dot

What is a mil dot?

It is short for milladran. It measures the degree and angle from the target (One mil of angle is approximately 3.6 inches long at 100 yards). It helps you compensate as you shoot in the wind for a perfect shot. In other words, anything that would distract a shot is sorted by the mil dot.


Leupold comes with a golden ring lifetime guarantee. This means, whichever issue that alters its functionality will either have it, fixed or replaced.

Usage and Proficiency

If you have never handled a rifle before, this is the rifle for you. It is best for starters.

Night Force

This model is known for its outstanding quality. It allows for a great spotting scope, which gives you true adjustment during usage. The Night Force has an excellent glass, with a top magnification. It is because of these two features that the rifle will adjust to different varying light conditions. It offers a strikingly perfect contrast balance during daytime, twilight even nighttime.

Most Night Force Models fall under $1000, which is a plus for both, prospective customers and users. It is good to note however, the Night Force weighs quite a ton. You must be prepared to carry a heavy duty around. It is not entirely a bad thing, it has large calibrations that will enable you to adjust to different lengths for a better aim.

This make will not misplace your bullets as you hit your target. The lapping rings ensure that irrespective of the click, your aim is still the on target and not the click as with most rifles. What do I mean? You will find bullets shift as you click to aim your target. This will not be the case with the Night Force.

Customer Reviews

Different customers had different experiences when they used either of the two rifles:

Leupold Rifle Scope

Scope arrived in fine shape - mounted it on Savage Axis in 308 caliber - Sight picture is flawless - bright and clear even in low light - after some trial and error with bullet weight- (finding the one my new rifle liked) it sighted in with three rounds four were in the black and stacked on top of each other- I will not buy any other brand of optic for my rifles

This scope without a doubt is the finest scope for the money. The clarity and the light gathering is just awesome. I killed a 10 point at 156 yards and if it were not for having this scope on my Browning X-Bolt

I would not have harvested this Buck. You owe it to yourself to have the VX6 on your favorite rifle. The CDs that Leupold sends you after sighting in is just the icing on the cake. This scope is just awesome. I have one on each of my browning’s

Night Force

This is by far the best scope I have ever owned. A little spend y but well worth every penny. Once it was locked on my AK-47 tracts every shot perfectly. You can see bugs crawling at 500 yards, so shots are easy to put wherever you want. Superb product

Best glass I've ever looked through!!! Feel the pain one time. (The cost) plus life-time warranty is awesome!!!

Crystal clear optics.
