First Look: Leica Amplus 6 Riflescope Series

posted on March 10, 2020
Leica Sport Optics has launched a newly developed series of riflescopes: the Leica Amplus 6. Featuring a 30mm tube with a 6X zoom, the Amplus balances performance with ruggedness, complimented by 90mm of eye relief and an extremely sharp illuminated dot. The exit pupil, meanwhile, is large at up to 12mm, as i the field of view, at up to 38m. While the Leica L-4a reticle serves as the platform's universal hunting reticle, the L-Ballistics is also available for precision shooting at londer distances. Both reticles are in the second focal plane. Finally, more than 90-percent light transmission make this scope a performer even in lower-light scenarios, like twilight and dusk.

On the development of the Amplus, Ferdinand Mogwitz, product manager of hunting optics at Leica Camera AG, commented: “The Amplus 6 ensures reliability and precision at the critical moment. We rely on the proven Leica DNA: color-neutral images with brilliant color correction, effective stray light suppression, highest-quality and modern coating technology, as well as shock-resistant housing and unrivalled surface finish. This makes the new Amplus 6 series a reliable tool for everyday all-around hunting situations.”
