Leupold & Stevens has announced its Mark 5HD riflescope has been 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 bolt-action multi-caliber system chambered in 7.62 NATO, .300 Norma Mag. and .338 Norma Mag. 

“The Mark 5HD has been built from the ground up to deliver the unparalleled performance that the men and women serving our country overseas require," 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 extremely 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.”

The Mark 5HD is crafted for the precision and optical performance required by long-range shooters. Three models—a 7-35x56 mm, 5-25x56 mm and a 3.6-18x44 mm—are available in both milliradian and MOA configurations. The scope is up to 20 ounces lighter than others in its class. Edge-to-edge clarity and low-light performance continue the superior performance enthusiasts have come to expect from the legendary company.

Leupold proudly provides its optics to the United States military, law enforcement and government agencies across the country, and to the armed forces of many of our nation’s closest allies. No American optics company has held more U.S. military contracts than Leupold.
