Mark AR has long range shooting solutions for the tactical hunter that have never been easier. Is the target at 500 yards? Simply turn the dial to the 5 and squeeze the trigger. It is that easy. Whether you shoot an AR15 platform or a bolt action, the Leupold Mark AR has it covered. Featuring fast focus eyepiece, BDC reticle, waterproof, and has the same performance standard as Leupold Mark 4.
Several Leupold riflescopes are available with the Mil Dot reticle, which was designed to help the U.S. Marine Corps estimate distances. It's now standard for all military branches.
Light reflecting off lens surfaces diminishes image quality. So Leupold® engineers developed Multicoat 4®, our own proprietary lens coating system to keep image quality pristine. Multicoat 4 greatly increases the amount of all available light that reaches your eye, while at the same time, it minimizes the reflections of the sky on the outer eyepiece.
Quantum Optical System
The Quantum Optical System™ is a leap forward and provides a new level of optical performance for hunters and shooters. Using the rugged foundation of the legendary Vari–X series and employing state–of–the–art optical and mechanical design software and manufacturing processes, this system delivers new levels of performance in every optical category. Lead free, ecologically friendly glass compositions are used throughout—the geometry of each lens is maximized through a combination of Ze–max® design software and evaluation using Leupold's Zygo® Interferometer to minimize wave front error and increase resolution. The result is razor sharp imaging across the typical light conditions experienced on any hunt—from the bright daylight of varminting to the dawn and dusk hours when big whitetails are on the move. By repositioning optical elements, employing new coatings and importantly, leaving key, time–tested mechanical aspects of the Vari–X system untouched, significant performance gains have been achieved in many other areas as well. The Quantum Optical System has greatly enhanced light transmission (up to 92% in the VX–1 system and 94% in the VX–2 system), resolution and color fidelity—all while preserving the ease of use and nearly indestructible ruggedness that has been a hallmark of Leupold riflescopes for generations.
2nd Generation Argon/Krypton Waterproofing
While we still waterproof other optics with bone–dry nitrogen — technology pioneered by Leupold® — select models feature our exclusive, proprietary Argon/Krypton gas blend. Its advantages are two fold: it nearly eliminates the effects of thermal shock, and the Argon/Krypton molecules are significantly larger than nitrogen molecules, reducing the diffusion of gases sealed inside your scope even more than our proven nitrogen technology already does.
