Leupold® Tactical Optics Delivers Mark 6® 1-6x20mm for Soldier Enhancement Program Evaluation

BEAVERTON, Ore. – Leupold’s® Tactical Optics division has delivered 351 Mark 6® 1-6x20mm optics to Ft. Stewart, Ga., as part of the Soldier Enhancement Program (SEP). SEP is designed to identify and evaluate commercial-off-the-shelf products that can bring increased effectiveness to military personnel.

In addition to providing the Mark 6 optics, Leupold sent a team of engineers and support personnel to Ft. Stewart to help develop and administer training programs, facilitate installation and answer on-the-ground technical questions.

“We appreciate having the opportunity for servicemen and women to evaluate our tactical optics firsthand,” said Chris Estadt, director of military business development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “No one knows better the needs of our armed forces in the field than those who have been there and done that. The feedback the Army receives from these evaluations is critical in equipping our armed forces with the best possible equipment in a shortest possible time Mark 6 units are already in service overseas with various U.S. military units. As a commercial-off-the-shelf product, the Mark 6 1-6x20mm is also the top choice among 3-gun and multigun competitors. Built around an ultra-bright daylight visible illumination system, the Mark 6 offers a true “both eyes open” situational awareness at 1x while offering the ability to identify and engage long range targets at high magnification.

Supported by a team of dedicated engineers, the Leupold Tactical Optics staff works with American warfighters, law enforcement personnel, and competitive shooters to design and build products that meet their needs. Currently, there are more variable-power long-range Leupold Tactical Optics in service with the U.S. Army than any other brand.

Leupold & Stevens, Inc., the preeminent American-owned optics company, employs 650 people in its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility near Beaverton, Ore. Family owned and operated, Leupold offers products that are sold worldwide to hunters, competitive shooters, American military warfighters, law enforcement personnel and wildlife observers. The product line includes rifle, handgun and spotting scopes; binoculars; rangefinders; trail cameras; mounting systems; and optical tools and accessories.

Deal of the Day by Webyshops: VORTEX Viper PST 4-16×50 FFP Riflescope

Specifically designed for the military, law enforcement and committed precision shooting communities, the VORTEX Viper PST 4-16×50 FFP Riflescope, EBR-1 MRAD Reticle (PST-416F1-M) offers the highest levels of performance and reliability. With features such as matched turret/reticle subtensions, CRS zero stop mechanisms and precision ranging reticles, the Viper PST is ready for any situation.

The Viper PST (Precision Shooting Tactical) is built on a precision-machined, one-piece aircraft-grade aluminum tube protected by a type-3 hard-anodized finish. The large diameter 30mm tube provides additional strength and rigidity, as well as extra room for extreme range elevation adjustments. The construction is 100% waterproof, dustproof and fogproof – purged with argon gas to prevent internal fogging and corrosion.

This model riflescope uses a first focal plane reticle. This style of reticle maintains its subtensions regardless of magnification change – the reticle appears to grow and shrink as the magnification changes. The main advantage to this style reticle is that the reticle subtensions used for ranging, holdovers and wind drift corrections are always accurate at any magnification.

XR coatings deliver incredible image detail with extremely high resolution and light transmission. XD (Extra-low Dispersion) glass objective lens elements made of extra-low dispersion glass enhance image resolution and are carefully selected and precision crafted to exacting standards for true-to-life images of startling clarity and color accuracy.

The Viper PST FFP riflescope uses a side focus parallax adjustment which, when properly set, eliminates parallax errors. Parallax is a phenomenon that results when the target image does not quite fall on the same optical plane as the reticle within the scope. When the shooter’s eye is not precisely centered in the eyepiece, there can be apparent movement of the target in relation to the reticle, which can cause a small shift in the point of aim. Parallax error is most problematic for precision shooters using high magnification.

Deal of the Day by Webyshops: The GX-4i Golf Rangefinder (114900)

The GX-4i Golf Rangefinder (114900) with Leupold’s high performance DNA (Digitally eNhanced Accuracy) engine and advanced infrared laser provides faster measurements and increased accuracy displayed to the nearest 1/10 of a yard. Exclusive PinHunter laser technology, fog mode, and three selectable aiming reticles consistently hunt down the pin in virtually any weather conditions.

Prism Lock technology affords unmatched accuracy by using highly reflective prisms already incorporated into many course features and pins to obtain a high intensity return to your GX rangefinder. With Prism Lock, holding the rangefinder steady becomes much less of a concern, and you can be assured your distance measurement is exact. Taking customization to the extreme, the removable Smart Key of the GX-4i adds the incredible benefit of True Golf Range (TGR) and the Club Selector, giving you the confidence you need to play the right shot every time.

TGR provides ranging information matched to your personal hitting strength, the slope of the shot, and current conditions to accurately compensate for uphill shots that play long and downhill shots that play short. The Club Selector™ feature combines your specific hitting strength and TGR to the target, automatically recommending the appropriate club for each shot. Simply input the distance obtained with three specific clubs and the GX-4i will do the rest.

Rugged, compact, and completely weatherproof, Leupold’s GX rangefinders are sure to shave strokes from your game.
