One of Leupold’s latest telescope offerings is likely to set a cat amongst the pigeons… because it’s not often that a telescope from a prestigious manufacturer that carries a lifetime warranty and is also made in the USA is set to retail for less than R4,000.
For hunters who have always wanted a Leupold but couldn’t afford one up until now, the new American Marksman 3-9x40mm telescope offers a great opportunity. According to Leupold, this new product has been introduced with the express aim of providing quality features and unbeatable durability at an affordable price.
The lead-free lenses feature Leupold’s exclusive Multicoat 4 lens coatings that provide top-class resolution, clarity, and contrast in a one inch tube.
The 1/4-MOA finger click adjustments make for quick and precise zeroing and easy adjustment in the field. Inside the scope is the LR Wind-Plex reticle with long range holdover points and 1-MOA windage marks on the horizontal crosshair.
A tactile power selector ring is easy to grasp and turn, and the lockable fast-focus eyepiece allows the shooter to focus the reticle quickly and easily, to get on target without wasting time.
The Marksman is 100% fogproof and waterproof, is made in the USA and is backed by Leupold’s Full Lifetime Guarantee.
