The new Leupold Patrol 6HD 1-6x24 riflescope has features that law enforcement, professional shooters and hunters can all appreciate. Here's a first look.

Leupold Patrol 6HD 1-6x24 Riflescope: Exclusive First Look

Leupold & Stevens, Inc. has announced the launch of the Patrol 6HD 1-6x24, the company’s latest low-power variable optic. Designed to help defend your ground, the ultra-lightweight, low-profile design of the Patrol 6HD deploys quickly, while its 1-6x magnification lets you engage targets anywhere–from tight corners to open fields.

“The Patrol 6HD is a true 1x power tactical optic, designed to help get you on target fast when it counts,” said John Snodgrass, Tactical Product Line Manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “It offers the best combination of durability, low-light performance and edge-to-edge clarity of any LPVO on the market.”

Two models will be available at launch, both with a 30mm maintube and Rear Focal Plane configuration. One features 1⁄4-MOA adjustments using a traditional capped dial and is equipped with an Illuminated FireDot Duplex reticle. The other still has 1⁄4-MOA adjustments but comes equipped with Leupold’s CDS-ZL2 dial system, allowing two full two turns of elevation adjustment with a locking dial and making it compatible with the company’s Custom Dial System. The CDS-ZL2 model has an Illuminated CM-R2 reticle.

The Patrol 6HD features Leupold’s Professional-Grade Optical System, which delivers the light transmission, glare reduction and resolution that professional guides and shooters demand. An anti-cant in-scope electronic reticle level, meanwhile, simplifies mounting and improves long-range accuracy. Its lightweight design disperses recoil energy for unrivaled durability, and a removable throw-lever allows for quick magnification changes in the heat of the moment. It is waterproof and fogproof, and its superior ruggedness has been verified through Leupold’s Punisher testing process.

Like all Leupold riflescopes, the Patrol 6HD is designed, machined and assembled in the company’s Beaverton, Ore., factory and backed by the Leupold Lifetime Guarantee.
