Leupold & Stevens’ Mark 5HD riflescope was selected as the day optic for the U.S. Army’s Precision Sniper Rifle (PSR) program. Like all Leupold riflescopes, the Mark 5HD is designed, machined and assembled at the company’s Beaverton, OR, factory. 

The U.S. Army Mark 5HD 5-25x56 mm will come in a proprietary flat dark earth coating and utilize the U.S. Army’s patented Mil-Grid Reticle. The optic will be issued on the USSOCOM selected MK22 Mod 0 based on the Barrett MRAD rifle, a bolt-action, multi-caliber system in .338 Norma Mag., .300 Norma Mag. and 7.62 NATO.  

“The Mark 5HD has been built from the ground up to deliver unparalleled performance,” said Sam Horstman, director of military sales for Leupold. “And, like all of our optics, the Mark 5HD has been strenuously tested for durability and fully meets the high standards that the military demands. Our Soldiers need their optics to perform, and we’re glad to be able to offer a solution that’s built to deliver on those expectations.”
