I have one of these, (Leupold Mark AR 1.5-4X)and I’m purchasing another which is as good a testament to it as any. Some reviewers had complained that this was too light? Try as I might, I cannot rate that as a bad thing on a rifle that is already weighed down with a bipod and 30 round mag. I’m always looking for ways to save weight on a rifle, especially one with no kick, so I count a lightweight scope, especially one with a full lifetime Leupold warranty (which is about as close to foolproof as you can get) as a definite plus. The optics are clearer than anything in it’s price range, and it takes a beating and holds zero well. If I shoot around the square, it comes right back to zero, something which I have only seen other Leupolds do, although all the various brands claim it. I tried other brands (Bushnell, Nikon, Millett) because I thought that I was just paying for the name, but after several mishaps and one ruined pronghorn hunt, I buy only Leupolds now. Even my lowly .22 wears a Leopold rimfire. I know this is one of the cheaper ones you can get, but for the life of me I can’t figure out why, so buy it before they up the sticker on it.
