Inside Look at Leupold's New Mark 4HD Riflescopes

Leupold has announced the immediate launch of the brand-new family of scopes.

Leupold has an all-new line of riflescopes to get the job done in the field for at the range—the Mark 4HD. Learn more in the video above.


From a Leupold & Stevens news release:

The Mark 4HD series features a 4:1 zoom ratio and five magnification ranges, giving you an accurate and reliable option for close-quarter engagements, long-range dominance, and everything in between.

"The Mark 4HD family was designed to deliver incredible performance and versatility–there’s an answer in the line for every rifle, on every range," said John Snodgrass, Tactical Product Line Manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. "While its features will allow it to immediately find a home on the rifle of even the most experienced professionals, we’re also excited that, right away, the Mark 4HD offers shooters across the board the opportunity to make the jump to premium performance optics."

The five magnification ranges available include: 1-4.5x24, 2.5-10x42, 4.5-18x52, 6-24x52, and 8-32x56. The 1-4.5x24 and 2.5-10x42 models feature 30mm maintubes. All 1-4.5x24 models are Second Focal Plane, while the 2.5-10x42 model is available in First (FFP) or Second Focal Plane (SFP). The three higher magnification options have 34mm maintubes and are all FFP optics. MIL or MOA adjustments and reticles are available throughout the line.

Illuminated reticle options are available. It is push-button operated and features Leupold’s Motion Sensor Technology (MST) which will put the illumination to sleep after five minutes of inactivity, reactivating it as soon as the scope moves.

The entire Mark 4HD family features Leupold’s Professional-Grade Optical System, which delivers the light transmission, glare reduction, and resolution that professional guides and shooters demand. The push-button ZeroLock dial system eliminates accidental dial movement and allows a rapid return to zero. Select models feature a similar ZeroLock windage turret.

New with the Mark 4HD is the PR3-MIL reticle. Building upon Leupold’s popular PR2-MIL reticle, the PR3 provides a clutter-free image for fast, accurate precision aiming.

"Since we rolled it out, the PR2-MIL reticle has been winning competitions around the world," Snodgrass said. "The PR3-MIL is based on direct feedback from those very same competitive shooters. It utilizes the .25-MIL increment foundation of the PR2’s vertical and horizontal stadia lines, while removing the ‘Christmas Tree’ portion in the lower field of view. It’s incredibly fast and incredibly clear."


The Mark 4HD is waterproof, fogproof, shockproof, and guaranteed to perform for life. Like all Leupold riflescopes, it is proudly designed, machined, and assembled in the company’s Beaverton, Ore., factory.
