With the introduction of the DeltaPoint, Leupold set the standard for red dot sight technology. Now that standard has been raised with the launch of the DeltaPoint 2.

The DeltaPoint 2 retains Leupold's patented Motion Sensor Technology, which instantly detects any motion, activates the illumination and adjusts the brightness to the environment, but now also includes a manual brightness adjustment, for those who prefer brighter or dimmer dots.

Also added is a master on/off switch, so the unit can be completely powered down to prevent excess battery drain during transportation or storage.  Powered by a CR2032 battery, DeltaPoint 2 does not need to be removed to change the battery.

Extremely rugged, the DeltaPoint 2 features a lightweight magnesium housing, while the squared aspheric lens delivers the widest field of view and the best image quality ever produced in a red dot sight. Dot bloom is virtually eliminated thanks to new lens coating, offering shooters a crisp, clean dot for precise and immediate shots on target.

"The DeltaPoint really set the standard for durability and technology," said Pat Mundy, senior marketing manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. "The DeltaPoint 2 is easier to use, possesses better clarity and brightness, and generally improves the DeltaPoint across the board."

From handguns to shotguns to rifles, the unlimited eye relief and generous 60 minute of angle (MOA) adjustments make the DeltaPoint 2 the perfect fit for any firearm. Lightweight, shock proof and waterproof, the DeltaPoint 2 is equally at home on the competition range as it is in the hunting field or the patrol car.

Available in a 3.5-MOA dot or a 7.5-MOA Inscribed Delta, the DeltaPoint 2 features DiamondCoat lens coating for scratch resistance and blackened lens edges for optimal clarity.

A cross-slot mount allows the DeltaPoint 2 to be mounted on any Picatinny or Weaver-style rail or bases. The complete mount kit includes specific mounting plates for the most popular handguns.

While the performance and ruggedness has been raised for 2014, the price remains untouched making the DeltaPoint 2 an even greater value than before.

  • Weight – 0.9 ounces
  • Height – 1.2 inches
  • Length – 1.64 inches
  • Width – 1.22 inches

From .22LR handguns to .458 SOCOM AR rifles, the DeltaPoint 2 is built to handle the shock of recoil. The DeltaPoint 2 is covered by the Leupold Full Lifetime Warranty, with the electronics covered by the Leupold Golden Ring Electronics Warranty.
