New to the Mark 5HD family is the Mark 5HD 2-10 x 30. This scope is an evolution of a line originally targeted at long range target shooters — circling back to service those looking to make closer shots or have smaller guns. This scope is shorter than most others in the line and weighs less than 24 ounces.
The entire Mark 5HD family has similar mechanics from the front of the turret back to the eyepiece with a 35mm main tube, three turn zero lock dial, revolution indicator, fast power selector with integrated throw lever and fast focus eyepiece.
We’ve already featured the Mark 5HD 7-35 x 56 on the channel, so there should be very little transition to the 2-10 x 30.
Also new this year are the BX-4 Range HD TBR/W 10 x 42mm, a set of rangefinding binoculars with a professional grade optical system and TDR/W ballistics program installed.
It also works well with Leupold’s CDS scopes, and can be activated with either the right or left hand.
Let us know – are you a fan of line extensions? What might you use the Mark 5HD 2-10x 30 for and what do you think of Leupold’s new products?
