Leupold has developed a hybrid optic called the Dual Aperture Gunsight Riflescope (DAGR), designed for both long-range and close-quarters shooting.

Leupold’s DAGR System integrates the Leupold Mark 6 3-18x44 mm riflescope with the CQB Aimpoint Micro T-1, allowing shooters to go quickly from 1X to 18X. The unit is 12-inches long and weighs just 34.2 ounces.

“Combat troops have traditionally had to choose long-range accuracy or close-quarter speed when selecting optics,” said Chris Estadt, director of military business development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Leupold’s DAGR System has responded with a shorter, lighter and faster optical system with unprecedented magnification range in a compact size.”

In order to increase effectiveness, Leupold redesigned the elevation turret to reduce the centerline distance between the optics to 1 3/4 inches, which increases the speed of target acquisition for CQB engagements. The DAGR System was recently submitted as the solution for the Miniature Day/Night Sight Enhanced Combat Optical Sight. This system will be available for consumers in 2013. The system includes a Berry Compliant carrying case, Leupold’s Mark 6 Integrated Mounting System and Sight mount.
