Leupold & Stevens, Inc., has redesigned its Gold Ring Spotting Scope line, giving it a new industrial design and a reticle to match its riflescopes.

The new line of scopes include the addition of the Impact Reticle in the 12-40x60 mm HD and the 20-80x60 mm models. This MOA-based, front focal plane reticle allows guides or spotters to call impacts and offer immediate corrections. A minute-of-angle based grid set in the lower half of the viewing field allows for fast and accurate measurements at any magnification. Additional milradian dots allow the Impact reticle to be used with mil-based reticles as well.

The combination of an MOA reticle in the spotting scope and matching adjustments on the riflescope make sighting in a simple, two-shot process. Fire a shot, measure the adjustment using the reticle’s gradiations, dial in the adjustment and fire the second to confirm.

“Spotting scopes are one of the most important tools in the hunter’s pack,” said Pat Mundy, Leupold & Stevens, Inc. director of brand communications.  “A good spotter helps the hunter scout longer and the wider field-of-view can help locate and identify animals otherwise missed.”

A new armor coating offers protection in the field, while the prism-less Folded Light Path system significantly reduces the overall length, which is ideal for excursions where space is at a premium. The new scopes continue to be designed, machined and assembled in Leupold’s Oregon manufacturing facility. To see the full line of Gold Ring spotting scopes, visit leupold.com.
