Leupold’s Mark 5HD riflescope series is getting a boost with new MOA models joining the scope family.

The Mark 5HD line will now feature 5-25×56 and 3.6-18×44 MOA models. The 5-25×56 version tips scales at 30-ounces while the 3.6-18×44 weighs in at 26-ounces. Both models boast Leupold’s Twilight Max HD Light Management System. The system balances image color and contrast in addition to light transmission and glare management.

Using a 35mm main tube, the Mark 5HD comes with M1C3 ZeroLock adjustments. Its elevation dials provide 100 MOA of adjustment in three turns on the 3.6-18×44 model while the 5-25×56 brings 120 MOA in three turns. The windage adjustment features a capped design with a zero indication mark on the main tube.

“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,” John Snodgrass, Product Line Manager for Leupold, said in a news release.

“Competitive shooters across the country have been impressed by what it’s capable of, and we’ve been fielding calls asking for a model designed for the minute of angle shooter ever since. We’re ecstatic to be able to deliver the industry’s best long-range tactical optic to both the Mil and MOA communities in 2019,” Snodgrass continued.

The Mark 5HD MOA scopes will be available with three reticle options: Impact 60, PR1-MOA and Illuminated PR1-MOA. Prices start at $2,399.
