(GunReports.com) – Leupold’s Tactical Optics Division has announced the addition of Horus reticle options for the Mark 4® 12-40x60mm Tactical Spotting Scope. This Mark 4 spotter is the standard Scout Sniper Observation Telescope (SSOT) of the U.S. Marine Corps.
Horus H32 and H36 reticles join the Leupold Mil Dot reticle as options. The H32 has a mil line for target measurement and speed estimation, while the H36 features an inverted “L” in Inch Of Angle (IOA) for ranging. The Mil Dot reticle matches those found in Leupold Mark 4 riflescopes, allowing a spotter to quickly range a target, view the same sight picture as the shooter and convey necessary adjustments.
Other key features of the Mark 4 Tactical Spotting Scope include light weight (37 ounces), a waterproof body, and premium optics. The armored magnesium body allows for this variable-power spotter to replace the fixed 20X M49 spotting scope that was used by the Marines since World War II.
Measuring 12.4 inches in length, the Mark 4 Tactical Spotting Scope mounts on a tripod and comes with a form-fitting, padded soft-side case with easy access panels. The case, which has a detachable strap, can remain on the scope, eliminating the need for lens covers.
