When Leupold produces a riflescope, you can be assured of two things: First, the quality is going to be top-notch. The glass is going to be crisp and clear, adjustment turrets and magnification levers will be clearly marked and operate cleanly, the finish will be excellent and the scope will last. Second, it’s going to have exactly the features you need for the purpose at hand, and may even surprise you with features you didn’t know you wanted, but find you can’t live without. In the case of the Mark AR 1.5-4x20 mm scope, the illuminated green dot at the center of the Firedot-G SPR reticle is an example of the second. Not only does the Mark AR have clear hash marks for windage and elevation adjustments on the fly, but the green dot can also change brightness—or even blink—to instantly draw your eye to the target.

“There might be less-expensive riflescopes out there for entry into 3-gun competition, but few bring the clarity, durability or ease of operation Leupold offers in the Mark AR series.” —Jay Grazio, Associate Editor.
