Leupold keeps their successful tradition of delivering state of the art sport optics alive with persistent attention to detail, precision and quality. This American optics company, located in Portland, Oregon, pioneered the process of nitrogen purging to waterproof riflescopes in 1947. Since then and to this day Leupold continues to develop new technologies, and use advanced materials to push the envelope to produce some of the worlds finest sport optics.
The Leupold 3.5-10x40 Mark 4® LR/T M3 Riflescope is a favorite of tactical marksmen and precision shooters worldwide. This is a scope that was designed from the ground up to perform flawlessly under actual high-stress field conditions. 3.5-10X covers the range preferred by marksmen, going from low to high power with a short quick turn of the zoom ring. At low power you can get a good view of the surrounding area and by coming in tight on your target you can execute surgically precise shot placement with ease. For long range shooting, extensive adjustments must be made to correct for bullet drop. The 30mm main tube provides this advantage, giving the shooter the ability to accurately dial-in the correct compensation when needed. The reticle is placed in the second focal plane ensuring the tactical milling reticle does not magnify and obscure details in your sight picture at high power. The 40mm objective delivers a brilliant image and allows a comfortable low mounting option. This is an extremely versatile sighting system that's perfectly suited to your favorite varmint or long range firearm.
To use a riflescope with your firearm, you'll need a mounting base and mounting rings in addition to the scope itself. Bases attach to your firearm and rings attach to your scope. By affixing the scope mounted rings to the rifle mounted base you create a reliable accurate, and secure sighting system. Proper spacing of the rings, as well as the ring height should be considered to ensure a proper line of sight can be established. This will maximize the value of your investment, and enhance your shooting experience. It should be noted that in many mounting applications, a professional gunsmith's skills will be needed for proper installation.
