G&A 2014 Optic of the Year: Leupold Mark 6 3-18x44 TMR

guns_ammo_of_the_year_awards_2014_optic_leupold_mark_6_3-18x44-TMR_F1This was Guns & Ammo's "do everything" scope in 2014. Ranging in price between $2,750 for one with a MIL DOT to $5,625 for a Mark 6 with an illuminated TREMOR 2 reticle, this optic had to overcome the fact that most readers won't be spending this kind of money for our award winner.

The Leupold Mark 6 3-18x44 was chosen Optic of the Year in the Dec. 2014 issue of G&A. Subscribe here!


Still, it won. Having been born in a military environment, here's what makes it an investment-quality optic: 1/10th-mil pinch-and-turn turret adjustments, front-focal-plane reticles, a power selector with a generous grip, all in a package that aces an optic box test. It measures only 12 inches and weighs 23.6 ounces.
