Outdoor Life Editor’s Choice One of Many Awards for Leupold® Products

 

BEAVERTON, OR. – Leupold & Stevens, Inc., is pleased to announce that the VX®-6 riflescope has been selected as the Editor’s Choice by the staff of Outdoor Life magazine.

The premier riflescope in the Leupold® catalog, the VX-6 brings a 6X magnification range, delivering unmatched clarity and utility in a single riflescope.

Outdoor Life editor Andrew McKean wrote that the VX-6 “delivers a crisp, bright image across the power range, its controls are precise, and its illumination system is intuitive.”

Unlike many higher power scopes that deliver their best sight picture only at each end of the zoom ratio, VX-6 is engineered to deliver exceptional image quality from edge-to-edge of the visual field at any magnification.

The VX-6 offers hunters the flexibility of 3-18 power in one riflescope. Side-focus adjustment and Custom Dial System® (CDS®) compatible elevation and windage dials allow for fast and easy adjustments from any shooting position.

In addition, the editors at Binoculars.com have bestowed the Binocular of the Year title on the new BX®-4 McKinley™ HD™ binoculars.

The BX-4 mates new extra-low dispersion objective lenses with rare earth element-coated ocular lenses to provide superb color rendition, exceptional low-light visibility and superb color rendition.

Available in 8x or 10x magnification, the BX-4 features 42mm objective lenses; multi-staged, variable height eyecups; and a responsive, fast-focus central focus dial.

A strong, lightweight magnesium alloy chassis delivers unsurpassed durability and rugged utility in the field. Leupold’s second-generation water and fog proofing ensures crystal-clear vision in any weather condition.

Finally, the readers of Predator Xtreme magazine have selected Leupold as the Riflescope manufacturer of the year in its first Readers Choice Awards. Leupold also received bronze medals in the binocular and rangefinder categories.

Quantum Optical System™ a Clear Difference for Leupold® VX® Riflescopes

BEAVERTON, Ore. – All Leupold® Golden Ring® VX® riflescopes in the 2012 line feature the Quantum Optical System™ to maximize the light management capabilities and overall performance of each model.

“Our Quantum Optical System redefines the process by which Leupold builds variable- power riflescopes,” said Pat Mundy, communications manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “It puts everything we have into our mission of building better riflescopes for hunters and shooters.”

The Quantum Optical System is applied to VX (variable power) riflescopes, according to the unique set of specifications, material requirements and performance expectations for each model. Working together to create the system are:

Teams of mechanical and optical scientists, engineers and product line managers who pool their industry-leading experience and expertise.

Sophisticated optical design and manufacturing tooling.

Materials including lead-free, precision-ground and environmentally friendly glass compositions. Glass lenses are refined via advanced software and equipment to increase resolution and produce razor-sharp imaging across the entire spectrum of light conditions.

Application-specific lens coatings that help boost total light transmission up to 92 to 98 percent. These premium and proprietary anti-reflective coatings include Multicoat 4®, Index Matched and Xtended Twilight. Select models offer blackened lens edges to provide the highest resolution and contrast.

Precision assembly of riflescope components for maximum optical performance. Specialized design tools allow near-zero tolerance machining of mechanical system parts to help ensure that all fit and work together in perfect harmony.

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.

Leupold® Tactical Optics Creates a New HAMR™

BEAVERTON, Ore. – New from Leupold’s® Tactical Optics Division, the Mark 4® High Accuracy Multi-Range (HAMR™) riflescope has the performance and versatility required for active duty in bright daylight, low light and at night.

The Mark 4 HAMR is a fixed power 4x24mm sight. Built for precise mid-range marksmanship and fast target acquisition, it offers a variety of features that work to the advantage of military warfighters, law enforcement personnel, and other tactical or competitive shooters. These features include the ballistically matched illuminated CM-R2™ reticle, a fast-focus eyepiece and Leupold’s advanced Xtended Twilight Lens System™. In addition, Leupold’s DeltaPoint™ reflex sight can be attached to the HAMR, providing instant target acquisition capability at close quarters. (DeltaPoint and HAMR are available as a package.)

“Our new Mark 4 HAMR is versatile, tough, compact and combat-ready,” said Kevin Trepa, vice president of tactical sales and marketing for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Simple to use, it can be employed with any AR-15 variant to engage targets with exceptional speed and precision.”

The CM-R2 reticle is designed for the most popular tactical rounds and weapons systems. An etched glass reticle, it is clearly visible with the illumination activated or in the “off” mode.

By combining the ranging ability of Leupold’s Special Purpose Reticle (SPR®) with the quick acquisition of the Leupold Circle Dot reticle, the CM-R2 provides the flexibility necessary on the modern battlefield or 3-gun course. The CM-R2 preserves the instinctive fire capabilities of the Circle Dot for the short-range, low-magnification needs of the CQB warfighter and competitive multi-gun shooters.

The CM-R2 is designed to allow the shooter to focus more attention on the target and less attention on the reticle. A boldly illuminated 0.5 MOA dot surrounded by a 5.0 MOA semi-circle enhance the shooter’s focus and combine precision with speed when the target is up close and personal. Hash marks on the horizontal stadia are calibrated for leading moving targets at 5, 10 and 15 mph, respectively. Vertical tic marks allow users to estimate ranges based on 18″ wide targets at increasing ranges, while also providing precise holdover points for targets between 300 and 900 meters.

With a quick 1.5 revolutions “lock to lock,” the rapid adjustment speed of the HAMR’s eyepiece helps get the shooter in focus and on target in short order. The addition of a DeltaPoint allows the user to quickly shift from the reflex sight to the HAMR, transitioning from close quarters to longer ranges with speed and ease.

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 HAMR’s visual field. Combined with a constant 2.71 inches of eye relief, the optical system is much more forgiving and effective than first-generation optical sights.

A flat-top Picatinny mounting system is included with each HAMR. It is compatible with any rail mounting system. Other features include 0.10 mil click adjustments for windage and elevation, and a F88 5.56mm Bullet Drop Compensation (BDC) dial.

Ready for deployment, the Mark 4 HAMR comes in a matte black finish, weighs 17.2 ounces and is 5.6 inches long. The scope is waterproof, fog proof and shock proof.

USMC Awards Contract to Leupold Tactical for Mark 8 CQBSS Riflescopes

BEAVERTON, Ore. – Leupold’s® Tactical Optics Division has won a contract with the United States Marine Corps (USMC) to supply 728 Mark 8™ 1.1-8x24mm CQBSS™ riflescopes for use with M2 heavy machine guns and MK19 grenade machine guns. The sight will carry the M521 designation.

Ordered to meet the need of Afghanistan-based Marine units for a Heavy Day Optic, the Mark 8 CQBSS scopes will be employed to support combat operations. A key feature of the scope is Leupold’s new Marine-Tactical Milling Reticle (M-TMR™), which is designed to allow successful range estimation and target engagement with more flexibility than generally possible with other reticle styles. The M-TMR’s “staircased” configuration preserves the instinctive-fire capabilities on low magnification while allowing precise range estimation at any power setting.

“The Marine Corps’ innovative employment of this new technology will bring enhanced lethality to two combat-proven systems, the M2 and MK19 heavy machine guns,” said Kevin Trepa, vice president of Leupold’s Tactical Division. “We will continue working hard to deliver the new tools that our warfighters need to succeed on the battlefield.”

The Mark 8 CQBSS has a state-of-the-art lens system providing operators with the capability of an 8-power precision riflescope in one rugged, field-proven unit. The 34mm maintube features a fully checkered ocular bell for making quick magnification adjustments even while wearing gloves.

A front focal plane reticle, the M-TMR is accurate at all magnification settings. Eight illumination settings allow for optimum contrast with or without night vision. An off position between each intensity setting makes returning to the preferred setting nearly immediate.

In addition, the Mark 8 CQBSS has Auto-Locking Pinch and Turn turrets with 0.10 mil clicks that are extremely easy to adjust, yet eliminate accidental adjustment in the field. Leupold’s Index Matched Lens System® with DiamondCoat 2™ helps enhance optical performance by providing increased light transmission and scratch resistance that exceeds mil-specs.

Mark 8 CQBSS riflescopes have a matte black finish and are filled with an argon/krypton gas blend, making them second-generation waterproof, fog proof and shock proof. Flip-open lens covers and a 2.5″ sun shade are standard issue.

Mossy Oak® Camo Finishes Now Available on Leupold® VX®-I and UltimateSlam® 3-9x40mm Scopes

BEAVERTON, Ore. – Utilizing an exclusive camouflage application technology for superior durability, Leupold® now offers the popular Mossy Oak® Break-Up® and Mossy Oak Treestand® hunting patterns on VX®-I and UltimateSlam® 3-9x40mm scope models.

Leupold’s advanced anodization process bonds the camo pattern directly to the scope body, ensuring an extremely tough and long-lasting finish, without adding thickness to the maintube diameter. The VX-I and UltimateSlam scopes are the first to feature this process.

One of the most versatile camo patterns, Mossy Oak Break-Up is effective in various hunting environments, from flooded timber to deep woods. Mossy Oak Treestand is designed specifically for whitetail deer hunters who shoot from an elevated position, providing concealment among the bare limbs of a tree in late fall.

“With these field-proven camo patterns, our VX-I and UltimateSlam scopes are a great choice for deer hunters concerned with concealment, whether they use a rifle, muzzleloader or shotgun,” commented Pat Mundy, communications manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Our unique anodization process, combined with the ruggedness typical of all our scopes, will deliver years of reliable performance, season after season.”

The VX-I camo riflescopes have the time-tested Duplex® reticle, micro-friction dials marked in ¼-MOA increments for easy windage and elevation adjustments, and Leupold’s classic lockable eyepiece for a secure focus. UltimateSlam scopes are designed to enhance accuracy with muzzleloaders and shotguns. Each UltimateSlam pairs Leupold’s exclusive Sabot Ballistics Reticle (SA.B.R.®) with an innovative power selector ring that allows hunters to synchronize their gun with their preferred load.

In addition, VX-I and UltimateSlam scopes feature Leupold’s Standard Multicoat lens system for a bright, clear image. Like all Golden Ring® scopes, they are waterproof and fog proof, and tested under extreme conditions to ensure ruggedness and durability.
