Leupold expanded its Mark 5HD riflescope lineup in 2023 with the launch of its 2-10X 30 mm option. The new optic provides the rugged performance for which the Mark 5HD line has become known while offering a smaller, lighter scope for carbines and other platforms where size and weight are a factor. Watch the video below to learn more about the new offering from American Rifleman Senior Executive Editor Kelly Young and Leupold & Stevens Tactical Product Line Manager John Snodgrass:


"The 2-10X 30 mm is still the same game-changing scope that shooters across the country have adopted," said John Snodgrass, tactical product line manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. "It has the unparalleled optical performance, it has the Three-Turn ZeroLock adjustments, and rare for a 2-10X, it has side-focus. It's got it all. We're excited to announce that, going forward, the Mark 5HD's industry-leading feature set will be compatible with even more rifle builds and platforms."

Each 2-10X 30 mm Mark 5HD riflescope is built with Leupold's Professional-Grade Optical System, which provides increased light transmission, glare-reduction, resolution and clarity compared to other options on the market. The optic measures 11" long and weighs 24 ozs. At launch, three models are available, all with a first focal plane reticle. Two models will feature either a TMR reticle or illuminated TMR reticle with milliradian adjustments, while a third model offers a PR1-MOA reticle with m.o.a. adjustments.

Suggested retail pricing on the Leupold 2-10X 30 mm riflescope starts at $1,900. All Leupold Mark 5HD riflescopes are designed, machined and assembled in the USA and are covered by the company's Full Lifetime guarantee. For more information, visit
