First Look: Leupold D-EVO Rifle Optic

First Look: Leupold D-EVO Rifle Optic


Leupold is one company that's clearly been thinking outside of the box, as witnessed at the 2015 SHOT Show with their revolutionary Dual-Enhanced View Optic (D-EVO) rifle optic.

With its periscope design and offset magnification tube, the D-EVO has an intriguing appearance which is nothing like we've seen before. The optic provides 6x magnification with a bullet drop compensating reticle that makes for intuitive target acquisition out to 100 yards and beyond. The D-EVO is something of a marvel in itself, however the real magic happens when it's paired with a 1x optic such as the new LCO (Leupold Carbine Optic) or the Leupold DeltaPoint Pro.


Combining the D-EVO with a 1x sighting device enables the optic system to be used like a pair of bifocal eyeglasses. When engaging close-range targets, use the traditional 1x optic. As distances stretch, transitioning to longer ranges is as simple as looking down into the D-EVO. Rather than moving your entire cheekweld from the stock, Leupold has designed the D-EVO so the sight picture appears by just moving your eyes. The resulting sighting system allows users to transition between targets as distances change.


The D-EVO comes to market for $1,874, the LCO is available for $1,249 and the DeltaPoint Pro has an MSRP of $599.
