The scope's powerful 6x zoom range provides an expansive field of view and rapid target acquisition at low magnification, as well as outstanding long-range target engagement at higher powers. Reticle options include the CMR-W 7.62 and CMR-W 5.56, which enable both speed and long-range precision for shooters using 5.56 and 7.62 carbines, Designated Marksman or patrol rifles.

"Whether you're on the battlefield or in a three-gun competition, our new Mark 6 1-6x20mm riflescope packs all the optical performance and versatility you need in an extremely compact, efficient package," said Kevin Trepa, vice president, tactical division for Leupold & Stevens, Inc.

The Mark 6 1-6x20mm features illuminated front focal plane reticles that are visible in daylight and allow for accurate ranging and shot correction at any magnification and in various light conditions. With seven illumination brightness settings, the scope is compatible with night vision devices. Off positions between each setting also help extend battery life and make returning to the preferred setting nearly immediate.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.
