Leupold Adds 7-35×56 Models to Mark 5HD Riflescope Line

BEAVERTON, Ore. — Leupold & Stevens, Inc. has expanded its award-winning Mark 5HD riflescope family with the addition of models that will features a 7-35x magnification range. The new 7-35 models will be available with either milliradian or MOA adjustments and reticles.

The Mark 5HD line has been crafted to redefine accuracy, precision, and optical performance for long-range shooters – and do so in a package that embodies rugged reliability. The 7-35 models deliver those same traits – but with the enhanced magnification range that diehard long-range shooters have demanded.

“From the beginning, the Mark 5HD project team set out to deliver riflescopes that had all the features long-range shooters have been calling for, but in a user-friendly package,” said John Snodgrass, Product Line Manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Shooters across the country have been impressed by what the Mark 5HD’s are capable of, and many have asked when we’d be adding more magnification to the line. We’re ecstatic to be able to deliver 7-35 models to the long-range community.”

In designing the Mark 5HD line, Leupold’s product specialists asked elite shooters what they needed to put accurate fire downrange faster, and used that input to design a riflescope that provides all the tools necessary – in both quality and features – without the unnecessary extras that add weight and cost for consumers. The 7-35×56 models weigh in at just 33 ounces, making the scope significantly lighter than nearly anything else in its class. But don’t let that fool you into thinking it can’t take a beating – quite the opposite. The Mark 5HD’s lightweight construction disperses recoil energy faster and creates unrivaled durability.

Get behind a Mark 5HD, meanwhile, and you’ll see the difference. All models deliver superior edge-to-edge clarity and extreme low-light performance. The Twilight Max HD Light Management System delivers the perfect balance of image color and contrast, light transmission, and glare management. The Mark 5HD is designed with a 35mm maintube for increased adjustment travel, and ships with a high-speed power selector ring featuring an optional low-profile throw lever that provides additional leverage.

The heart of the Mark 5HD is in its ZeroLock adjustments, which provide precise, repeatable tracking with a dead-on return to zero. The M5C3 elevation dials deliver 30-mils of adjustment in 3 turns, at 10-mils per turn on milliradian models, allowing the Mark 5HD to max out the performance of the latest long-range rifles and ammunition. The M1C3 elevation dials deliver over 70 MOA of adjustment in 3 turns on the 7-35×56 MOA models. Visual and tactile revolution indicators are in place to ensure you don’t get lost in the travel, and the auto-lock at zero eliminates the risk of inadvertently moving the dial. The windage adjustment is capped and the zero indicator mark has been relocated on the riflescope’s maintube so you can see it without having to move your head off the stock of the rifle.

The milliradian models Mark 5HD 7-35×56 will be available in six reticle options: H-59, CCH, TMR, Tremor 3, and Tremor 3 Illuminated. The MOA version will be available with an Impact 60 MOA reticle.

All Mark 5HD riflescopes are designed, machined, and assembled in the United States and backed by Leupold’s legendary Full Lifetime Guarantee.

      As far as I know their glass is made in Japan. Don’t think it’s LOW, but possible.

      • Dogma says:

        As I understand it Leupolds glass blanks are are sourced to meet their requirements, with each one inspected. After passing inspection the blanks are ground, polished and coated to meet requirements, then inspected again before assembly into the body of scope, also made by Leupold, then inspected once again after assembly.

    • Mac679 says:

      There’s only about 2 or 3 companies in the world that make camera grade glass (ED/HD) and they’re in Japan and Germany.
