Leica Amplus 6 MOA

The Amplus 6 scope from Leica Sport Optics is now available in MOA versions as well. Featuring 6X zoom and reticle illumination in a 30 mm design, Amplus 6 MOA combines high-quality optical performance in a feature-rich and robust construction for everyday all-around use.

When developing the Amplus 6, Leica placed an emphasis on the high-quality components of the functional elements. Ferdinand Mogwitz, Product Manager Hunting Optics at Leica Camera AG, commented: “The Amplus 6 ensures reliability and precision at the critical moment. We rely on the proven Leica DNA: color-neutral images with brilliant color correction, effective stray light suppression, highest-quality and modern coating technology, as well as shock-resistant housing and unrivalled surface finish. This makes the new Amplus 6 series a reliable tool for everyday all-around hunting situations.”

The Leica Amplus 6 MOA balances premium optical performance with rugged features which are complimented by the extremely sharp illuminated dot, 6x zoom, large exit pupil and wide field of view. This robust design makes the Leica Amplus 6 a good choice for use in almost any situation, even in the most adverse conditions.

The precise, illuminated reticles of the Amplus 6 line ensure fast target acquisition and a sharp, easy to see illumination, without any annoying over-glow. This ensures that users can have a clear sight picture, even when in challenging light conditions, while the second focal plane Leica L-Ballistics reticle enables precision shooting at longer distances.
