Leupold dubs itself “America’s Optics Authority”. There’s a good reason for that. Leupold scopes are built to last. Yes, they have great optics and some real innovative designs, but it’s the Made in the USA dependability that makes Leupold scopes so desirable. Yes, you will pay a small premium for a Leupold, but you get a lot back in return.
Leupold is an extremely easy company to deal with. Their Technical guys are top notch and know their stuff. Should you ever have any questions or problems Leupold will take care of you and treat you fair.
Leupold offers a rock solid Full Lifetime Guarantee. Simply put, if any material or workmanship issues ever arise with your scope, they’ll fix the scope or replace it free. For life. Even if you’re not the original owner. Now that’s a guarantee.
Leupold scopes are also known for the long eye relief they provide. Eye relief is the distance from the eye-piece to your eye that allows you to see the entire sight picture. Leupold scopes have approximately 4 inches of eye relief. Cheaper scopes have 2.5 to 3 inches of eye relief. Short eye relief is bad, especially with powerful calibers, as the recoil from your gun can make the scope hit your face and give you a black eye. Longer eye relief also provides a more comfortable shooting position for more accurate shots.
Leupold scopes come in a variety of finishes. Matte black is the most popular, along with gloss black, silver and Earth Tone are available. Funky anodized colors are available from the Leupold custom shop.
A large variety of reticles are available on Leupold Scopes. The standard duplex is the most popular, with several variations. There are also ballistic type reticles like the Boone and Crockett, Varmint hunters and Long Range Duplex reticle, various illuminated reticles, specialty reticles for target shooters and tactical purposes. If the Leupold scope you want does not come with a reticle you desire, you can special order that scope/reticle combination through us for a nominal charge.
All Leupold scope main tubes are made from aircraft quality T6 aluminum, all scopes have second generation waterproofing, are fog proof and shock proof.
