Leupold Introduces New Mark 5HD Riflescope Line

posted on January 23, 2018

Leupold & Stevens, Inc., has unveiled its new Mark 5HD line of riflescopes. Featuring two models at launch, the company says the Mark 5 HD has been designed to redefine accuracy, precision and optical performance for long-range shooters, in a package that embodies rugged reliability.

The 5-25x56 model is ideal for hunters seeking maximum usable magnification, while the 3.6-18x44 model balances its compact build with superior optical performance. Pick up the new Mark 5HD and the first thing you’ll notice is its reduced weight—up to 20 ounces lighter than other scopes in its class. The 5-25x56 model weighs 30 ounces, while the 3.6-18x44 model weighs in at 26 ounces.

“The Mark 5HD has all of the features long-range shooters and hunters want and need, and none of the ones they don’t,” said Michael Wunnicke, director of marketing for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “This is a product that customers have been calling for, and we’re ecstatic to be able to deliver it.”

The Mark 5HD’s all-new M5C3 ZeroLock adjustments provide precise, repeatable tracking with a dead-on return to zero. The M5C3 elevation dials deliver 30-mils of adjustment in 3 turns, at 10-mils per turn, allowing the Mark 5HD to max out the performance of the latest long-range rifles and ammunition. Visual and tactile revolution indicators are in place to ensure you don’t get lost in the travel, and the auto-lock at zero eliminates the risk of inadvertently moving the dial. The windage adjustment is capped, and the zero indicator mark has been relocated on the riflescope’s maintube so you can see it without having to move your head off the stock of the rifle.

The Mark 5HD is offered in a variety of etched glass reticles, including the Tactical Milling Reticle, H59, Tremor 3 and the new Combat Competition Hunter. The TMR and Tremor 3 will be available in both standard and illuminated versions.

The Mark 5HD 5-25X56 model has an MSRP of $2,599.99, and the 3.6-18x44 model has an MSRP of $2,399.99.
