Leupold D-EVO: Exclusive First Look

posted on January 18, 2015

One of the problems faced by competitors and warfighters alike is target engagement distance. An optic that is good out to 600 yards might not be the best for CQB. Leupold has taken an innovative approach with its brand-new D-EVO, which stands for Dual-Enahnced View Optic. Essentially, it is 6X periscopic gunsight that protrudes off the right side of a gun's top rail. This allows a 1X optic, such as Leupold's LCO (Leupold Carbine Optic) to be used at close distances not requiring magnification.

The D-EVO has a really useful reticle called the CMR-W (Close Mid-Range with Wind Holds). The reticle has a half-m.o.a. dot, a five m.o.a. inside and 7.5 outside diameter circle, then wind, elevation and windage hash marks in mils.

The way it works is pretty slick: If targets are close, use your red dot. If they are far, you can simply look down into the D-EVO without breaking your cheek weld. It is really with the flick of an eye that you can change target distances. Check out this video of American Rifleman's Editor-in-Chief Mark Keefe in this exclusive first look.
