Mark 4HD Scope

The new Mark 4HD series of optics from Leupold has all the renowned performance of the Mark 5HD line and little less. The smaller, slimmer main tube of the Mark 4HD is still packed full of the features you loved in the Mark 5HD line, but with less weight and less bulk. Whether you’re a dedicated enthusiast or a uniformed professional, the Mark 4HD’s optical clarity and lightweight design will get the job done at the range or in the field. The Mark 4HD series features five magnification ranges, with options for close-quarter engagements or long-range precision as well as everything in between. The scopes are available with a three-turn elevation dial and a precise ZeroLock windage adjustment that won’t move when knocked around, along with a side focus for targets as close as 25 yards. Like all Leupold riflescopes, they’re waterproof, fogproof, and backed by a lifetime guarantee. There are five magnification ranges in the Mark 4HD line to choose from:

  • 1-4.5x24: 30mm main tube, 18 ounces weight
