Leupold & Stevens expanded its Low Power Variable Optics (LVPO) lineup in 2022 with the addition of the 6HD, a 1-6x24 mm riflescope designed to provide true 1X magnification and clarity in a range of lighting conditions, all in a lightweight, low-profile package.

“The Patrol 6HD is a true 1X power tactical optic, designed to help get you on target fast when it counts,” said John Snodgrass, tactical product line manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “It offers the best combination of durability, low-light performance and edge-to-edge clarity of any LPVO on the market.”

At launch, the Leupold 6HD lineup will feature two models, both outfitted with 30 mm main-body tubes, 1/4 m.o.a. adjustments and a rear focal plane. The first model will include traditional capped adjustment turrets and an illuminated FireDot Duplex reticle. The second model will include the company's CDS-ZL2 adjustment dials, which include two full turns of elevation adjustment, along with a locking dial and compatibility with Leupold's Custom Dial System. This second model will also feature an illuminated CM-R2 reticle.

Both models are equipped with the company's Professional-Grade Optical System, designed to promote improved light transmission, glare-reduction and optical resolution. The riflescopes are also built with anti-cant electronic levels that can be viewed within the sight picture. A removable throw lever is also included for rapid magnification adjustments. The first model, featuring the capped adjustment turrets, weighs in at a scant 14.5 ozs., while the CDS-ZL2-equipped riflescope weighs 15.05 ozs. Suggested retail pricing on the new optic starts at $1,399.99. For more information, visit
