Built for Battle: Leupold® Covers Entire Spectrum of Tactical Optics Needs

BEAVERTON, Ore. – Leupold‘s® intense focus on product development has culminated in a new generation of tactical riflescopes that cover the entire spectrum of optics requirements, from close quarters to extended ranges, for warfighters as well as competitive shooters.

In 2011, the Leupold Tactical Optics Division has launched innovative riflescopes including the Mark 4® 6.5-20x50mm Extended Range/Tactical (ER/T®) M5 Auto-Locking Adjustment model, the Mark 8™ 1.1-8x24mm CQBSS™ and the Mark 4 High Accuracy Multi-Range (HAMR™). The U.S. Army has chosen the ER/T M5 Auto-Locking Adjustment riflescope as the primary day optic for its newest sniper rifle, the XM2010. In addition, Leupold recently contracted with the United States Marine Corps (USMC) to supply the CQBSS for use with M2 heavy machine guns and MK19 grenade machine guns. The Marine Corps sight will carry the M521 designation.

“Whatever the mission or application, whether the weapon is a sniper rifle or carbine, we have an optic that will help achieve success on the battlefield or in precision shooting competitions,” said Kevin Trepa, vice president of Leupold’s Tactical Division. “Our next-generation riflescopes are the result of a concentrated product development program with the military over the past couple years, and we will continue our hard work to meet the requirements of our warfighters and civilian shooters alike.”

The ER/T Auto-Locking Adjustment riflescope is specially designed and built with the military sniper in mind. It has an auto-locking elevation adjustment. This feature ensures that reticle adjustment is maintained during rough going and stressful conditions. Reticle options include the Horus™ H27 and H58, as well as Leupold’s Tactical Milling Reticle® (TMR®).

Versatile enough for close quarters battle as well as distances out to several hundred meters, the CQBSS is available with the new Horus H27D reticle or Leupold’s Military-Tactical Milling Reticle (M-TMR™). The M-TMR is designed to allow successful range estimation and target engagement with more flexibility than generally possible with other reticle styles.

Built for precise mid-range marksmanship and fast target acquisition, the HAMR features an illuminated CM-R2™ reticle. Leupold’s DeltaPoint™ reflex sight, utilizing either a 7.5-MOA Delta reticle or 3.5-MOA Dot reticle, can be attached to the HAMR, providing instant target acquisition capability at close quarters. (DeltaPoint and HAMR are available as a package.)

Other recent developments in the Leupold Tactical line include the Mark 4 Close Quarters/Tactical (CQ/T®) riflescope, which is now offered with the CM-R2 reticle; the Mark 4 20-60x80mm Tactical Spotting Scope available with the Mil Dot or TMR reticle; and the Mark 4 12-40x60mm Tactical Spotting Scope with the Horus H32 (standard or inverted) or H36 reticle (standard or inverted). In addition, the new Integral Mounting System (IMS™), created specifically for most AR and other tactical rifles, features a monolithic, cantilever design for strength and durability under the harshest conditions. The IMS eliminates problems associated with the two most common issues faced when mounting standard riflescopes to AR-style rifles: scope height and eye relief.

Kruger Optical Announces TacDriver Tactical Optics Line

Kruger Optical announces the introduction of its TacDriver™ Tactical optics line, now available through select retailers.

Kruger’s team of engineers created the TacDriver Tactical line with the goal of putting high-performance features into an affordable line of tactical riflescopes.

“After looking at the current tactical product offerings in the marketplace, it was clear that there was a large gap between the top-quality tactical scopes and the more affordable models being offered, both in terms of features and image quality,” Kruger President Mark Thomas said. “We felt there was room for a great deal of improvement in terms of the quality of the entry-level tactical scopes out there.”

“Once we identified this need, it was easy to create a line of affordable tactical scopes that offered all the right bells and whistles without the traditionally high price tag,” Thomas said.

The collection includes four scopes, all with 4x magnification systems. The collection includes a 1-4×24, a 1.5-5×32, a 2.5-10×50 and a 10-40×56, all packed with the features shooters need in the field. Retail prices range from $117.57 for the 1.5×32, to $376.39 for the 10-40×56.

The 1.5-5×32 model contains a glass-etched, floating plex reticle with dual color illumination and five brightness levels in green and red. The other models are equipped with glass-etched, illuminated Mil-dot reticles, with 10 discrete brightness levels. Fully multicoated optics deliver a bright, sharp image.

Scopes incorporate 30mm main tubes to allow for ample windage and elevation adjustment rage. Scopes include ¼ and ½ MOA resettable locking adjustments with clicks.
O-ring sealed and nitrogen processed, scopes are waterproof and fogproof for outstanding performance in the harshest environments.
