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.

Leupold's D-EVO and LCO rifle optics created a huge buzz at the 2015 SHOT Show.
The 6x magnification D-EVO was originally designed with coyote hunting in mind. When the 'yotes come in close, the 1x optic makes for fast shots. However, if those pesky dogs hang up at 100 yards or more, they're still in range of the D-EVO.
Mounted at an offset location, the D-EVO has a periscope design that peers down the side of a rifle.
The D-EVO holds a low-profile when mounted to an AR-15.
Form meets function, especially when paired with the new Leupold Carbine Optic.

Shown here with the Leopold DeltaPoint Pro, the D-EVO works in conjunction with nearly any 1x optic on the market.
