SHOT Show 2018: Leupold Mark 5HD Riflescope

Leupold's big announcement for SHOT Show 2018 is the Mark 5HD Riflescope, promoted as having the features long-range shooters and hunters want and need, and none of the ones they don’t. “This is a product that customers have been calling for, and we’re ecstatic to be able to deliver it,” said Michael Wunnicke, director of marketing for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. 

Two models were featured at launch, a 5-25x56 model (weighing in at 30 ozs), and a 3.6-18x44 edition (checking in at 26 ozs.), lightening the load by as much as 20 ozs. lover other scopes in its class. 

“Our Mark 5HD project team had one goal in mind: delivering riflescopes that had all the features long-range shooters have been calling for, but in a user-friendly package,” Tim Lesser, vice president of product development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc., said. “We asked elite shooters what they needed to put accurate fire downrange faster, then we used that input to design riflescopes that provide everything necessary—in both quality and features—without superfluous extras that add unnecessary weight and cost for the end user."

The Twilight Max HD Light Management System balances image color and contrast, light transmission and glare management. Both models are available with or without illuminated reticles, feature 35 mm maintubes for increased adjustment travel, and a high-speed power selector ring featuring an optional low-profile throw lever that provides additional leverage.

The heart of the Mark 5HD is the all-new M5C3 ZeroLock adjustments, which provide precise, repeatable tracking with a dead-on return to zero.
