Leupold® Mark 8™ 3.5-25x56mm M5B2 Delivers Success at any Distance

BEAVERTON, Ore. – Leupold’s® Tactical Optics division introduces the Mark 8™ 3.5-25x56mm M5B2 riflescope, giving serious shooters the flexibility and precision necessary for making surgical long-range shots.

With a wide 8x zoom range, the Mark 8 3.5-25x56mm M5B2 gives operators a wide field of view at lower settings, yet still provides excellent long-range target discrimination at higher powers. Illuminated front focal plane reticles allow for accurate ranging and shot calls at any magnification under any lighting conditions.

“The modern warfighter and law enforcement officer needs to be flexible, able to fulfill roles from long-range marksman to urban intelligence gathering,” said Kevin Trepa, vice president, tactical division for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “The wide power range on the Mark 8 3.5-25x56mm M5B2 allows one operator to control his fire zone from 100 yards out to the maximum reach of his rifle.”

With a choice of a Mil Dot reticle or a Horus Vision® H58 reticle, operators can be assured of precise ranging and holds at all distances. Seven illuminations, with an off position between each one, extends battery life while ensuring “on” is just one click away. Night-vision compatibility means the Mark 8 3.5-25x56mm M5B2 is combat-ready in any environment, night or daytime.

A 35mm maintube provides more than 25 milliradians of total elevation adjustment and features the M5B2 adjustment:

0.1 mil-per-click elevation adjustments (M5) that allows for easy and precise corrections

Auto-Locking Pinch and Turn (B) to eliminate accidental movement in the field

Two-turn (2) zero stop elevation dial with a tactile revolution indicator, providing 20 mils of travel (10 mils per revolution) while eliminating under- or over-rotation of the dial

Quick change Bullet Drop Compensation (BDC) rings allow the Mark 8 3.5-25x56mm M5B2 to maintain its accuracy between multiple long-range cartridges.

Leupold’s Xtended Twilight Lens System™ provides superior light transmission for the best low-light performance, particularly in the blue/violet light of dawn and dusk. The system produces an extremely bright, sharp image across the Mark 8 3.5-25x56mm M5B2′s entire visual field.

300 Blackout Reticle Available in Leupold® Mark 4® 1.5-5x20mm MR/T®

BEAVERTON, Ore. – Leupold® Tactical Optics now offers its Mark 4® 1.5-5x20mm MR/T® riflescope with its new front focal plane 300 Blackout reticle. Designed to meet the dynamic needs of military, law enforcement and competitive shooters, this new Mark 4 blends speed, precision and accuracy with the flexibility of the .300 AAC Blackout cartridge.

“Leupold Tactical Optics is always looking for ways to improve the optics we put into the hands of our military, law enforcement and competition shooters,” said Kevin Trepa, vice president, tactical division for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “One of the latest advancements has been the .300 AAC Blackout cartridge, and we want to ensure operators have premium riflescopes to pair with this new round.”

The illuminated front focal plane reticle allows for precision aiming at lower power settings and intuitive ranging at higher powers. Seven intensity settings feature an off position between each numbered brightness mark to help extend battery life and ensure that illumination is never more than one click away.

From point-blank range to beyond 700 yards, the Mark 4 1.5-2x20mm MR/T provides the rugged flexibility sought by both combat and action rifle shooters. With a twist of the magnification dial, operators can quickly transition between instinctive, short-range snap shots and precision long-range shots.

Developed in conjunction with Advanced Armament Corporation®, the new 300 Blackout reticle is calibrated for use with both subsonic and supersonic loadings of the .300 AAC Blackout cartridge. This .30-caliber cartridge delivers enhanced suppressed knockdown energy when compared to pistol caliber carbines. In its supersonic loadings, the .300 AAC Blackout has proven to be a solid hunting cartridge for game up to whitetail deer.

300 Blackout Reticle Available in Leupold® Mark 4® 1.5-5x20mm MR/T® Leupold’s Xtended Twilight Lens System™ delivers superior light transmission and edge-to-edge image clarity throughout the entire zoom range.

Colt Adds Crimson Trace Laser Grips to New Agent Pistol

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. – Colt’s Manufacturing Company LLC has teamed up with Crimson Trace Corporation for the first ever Lasergrips®, grip-integrated laser sight emblazoned with the Colt® logo, which is now standard on the Colt New Agent® pistol. This compact, lightweight Colt 1911 series pistol with wrap-around, front activation laser sight, gives shooters increased accuracy and confidence in their shot placement.

“The Colt New Agent is an excellent choice for a concealable pistol for personal protection,” said Joyce Rubino, Colt’s Vice President of Marketing, “With the addition of Crimson Trace® laser sights, New Agent shooters can be increasingly confident that their shots will hit the mark.”

The upgraded New Agent model 1911 weighs less than 24 ounces and measures 6.75 inches in length. While possessing the power and protection of a full sized pistol, this compact model is a great option for concealed carry. Colt’s New Agent offers a seven-round magazine capacity in .45 ACP and an eight-round magazine capacity in 9 mm Parabellum.

The carbon steel slide is finished in matte blue and the lightweight alloy frame is black anodized. The New Agent’s trigger is skeletonized aluminum with a 3-inch bushingless barrel.

The New Agent’s traditional double diamond grips have been replaced with black, wrap-around Crimson Trace grips made of a polymer and rubber combination. With the Crimson Trace laser sight and trench style sighting system in lieu of iron sights, the New Agent has a snagless draw, adding to the capability of this pistol.

Highly visible at self-defense distances, the red laser comes factory-zeroed at 50 feet. The unit may be fine tuned by the user for their choice of ammunition, via integral windage and elevation adjustments. When the pistol is held with a natural firing grip, the instinctive, front-activation laser is initiated.

“We’re thrilled to offer this quality Colt pistol paired with Crimson Trace’s popular laser sight to give shooters a product combination that will increase shot confidence,” said Rubino.

Leupold® Introduces Scope for Crossbow Hunting

BEAVERTON, Ore. – Designed specifically for crossbow hunting, Leupold‘s new Crossbones scope features an exclusive reticle integrated with a special power selector to maximize shooting accuracy.

The power selector is calibrated in velocity rather than magnification, allowing the hunters to easily match the ballistic profile of their arrows to the exclusive Crossbones Ballistic Reticle (CBR).

“Our CBR reticle is ideally suited to the function and power of today’s modern crossbow,” said Pat Mundy, communications manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “The power selector ring allows shooters to effortlessly adjust to their arrow velocity and calibrate the CBR for the arrow at the same time.”

A 2-7x33mm scope, Crossbones offers all the optical performance and ruggedness typical of Golden Ring® riflescopes. Another key feature is Leupold’s Quantum Optical System™, which includes lead-free, precision-ground and polished lenses with Leupold’s exclusive Multicoat 4® coatings for enhanced resolution, clarity and contrast. Carefully positioned in optimum relationship to each other, the lenses deliver up to 92 percent total light transmission.

Finger-adjustable, ¼-MOA click windage and elevation dials allow quick zeroing and fine tuning in the field. The power selector ring incorporates a tactile indicator, making it easy to grasp and turn even while wearing gloves. A fast-focus eyepiece with a low-profile lock ring makes reticle focus easy to achieve and maintain.

Crossbones is waterproof, shockproof and fog proof. The scope is built for rugged use with a matte black one-inch maintube manufactured from 6061-T6 aircraft-quality aluminum alloy. It is covered by Leupold’s Full Lifetime Guarantee.

Weighing 9.9 ounces and measuring 11.3 inches in length, Crossbones sports modern styling with a gold-plated Leupold® medallion highlighting the exterior design.
