The “first wave” of Leupold & Stevensʼ Tactical Optics Division products has been so incredibly successful that the Beaverton (Oregon)-based company simply couldnʼt hold back from proceeding on the same path of innovation, introducing two compact and exceptionally fast, versatile riflescopes for military warfighters, law enforcement personnel and competition shooters, and an utterly reliable pair of new binoculars. Thatʼs the “WAVE 2” of Leupold Tactical Optics.
The new, compact (10.3 inches long; weight is 17 ounces) Mark 6 1-6x20mm M6C1 riflescope features a powerful 6x zoom range providing an expansive field of view and rapid target acquisition at low magnification, as well as outstanding long-range target engagement at higher powers. Reticle options include the CMR-W 7.62 and CMR-W 5.56, which enable both speed and long-range precision for shooters using 5.56 and 7.62 carbines, Designated Marksman or patrol rifles.
The Mark 6 1-6x20mm M6C1 features illuminated front focal plane reticles that are visible in daylight and allow for accurate ranging and shot correction at any magnification and in various light conditions. With seven illumination brightness settings, the scope is compatible with night vision devices. Off positions between each setting also help extend battery life and make returning to the preferred setting nearly immediate. The Mark 6 1-6x20mm riflescope also features new M6C1 adjustments: 0.2 mil-per-click elevation adjustments (M6) that allows for easy and precise corrections; Auto-Locking low profile Zero Stop (C) to eliminate accidental movement in the field; One-Turn (1) zero stop elevation and windage dial providing 11 mils of elevation travel in a single rotation. A rugged 34mm maintube and 6x erector system provide more than 37 milliradians of total adjustment.
All Leupold Mark 6 1-6x20mm M6C1 riflescopes sport a matte black finish and are filled with an Argon/Krypton gas blend, making them second-generation waterproof, fog proof and shock proof. Covered by the Leupold Mark 4 Warranty, the scopes undergo arduous environmental and impact testing to ensure they meet the highest quality standards for durability and dependability.
Designed for optimal versatility and efficient performance, the Mark 6 3-18x44mm M5B2 riflescope comes in a small, light package (11.9 inches long; weight is 23.6 ounces) well suited to military, law enforcement and competitive shooting applications.
The Leupold Mark 6 3-18x44mm riflescope has a powerful 6x zoom range that provides an expansive field of view and rapid target acquisition at lower magnifications, as well as outstanding long-range target engagement at higher powers. Reticle options include the new CMR-W 7.62, which enables both speed and long-range precision for shooters using 7.62 carbines and other battle/patrol rifles. In addition to the CMR-W reticle, the Horus™ H-58 reticle is available as an option.
The Mark 6 3-18x44mm also features new M5B2 adjustments: 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 and 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.
A rugged 34mm maintube creates more than 28 milliradians of total elevation adjustment. All Mark 6 3-18x44mm 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. Covered by the Leupold Mark 4 Warranty, the scopes undergo arduous environmental and impact testing to ensure they meet the highest quality standards for durability and dependability.
Last, the Leupold BX-2 tactical binoculars series feature a slim, in-line BAK-4 roof prism design with contemporary styling that makes them compact, lightweight, and ergonomic. The optics feature phase coated prisms and a multi-coat lens system for exceptional brightness, contrast, and clarity, while the proprietary nitrogen-filling process makes it waterproof and fogproof. Armor-coated, rugged and waterproof, the Leupold BX-2 tactical binocular is a truly all-round mission-capable instrument available in 8x42mm or 10x42mm versions, with a close focus distance of 10 feet.
