Leupold’s Mark 5HD riflescope series is getting a boost with new MOA models joining the scope family.
The Mark 5HD line will now feature 5-25×56 and 3.6-18×44 MOA models. The 5-25×56 version tips scales at 30-ounces while the 3.6-18×44 weighs in at 26-ounces. Both models boast Leupold’s Twilight Max HD Light Management System. The system balances image color and contrast in addition to light transmission and glare management.
Using a 35mm main tube, the Mark 5HD comes with M1C3 ZeroLock adjustments. Its elevation dials provide 100 MOA of adjustment in three turns on the 3.6-18×44 model while the 5-25×56 brings 120 MOA in three turns. The windage adjustment features a capped design with a zero indication mark on the main tube.
