Please beware that the Alumina series flip covers and intensifiers DO NOT FIT the objective on the Mark 4 1.5-5 x 20mm scope. I found this out the hard way (after ordering them) and somewhat by accident (happened to mention it while on the phone with Leupold).

The problem is that Leupold maintained the 30mm tube diameter out at the objective end of the scope. They do not offer the alumina accessories in 30mm. So those of us who shelled out $1K for a Leupold scope seem to be SOL.

Caveat Emptor!

pyro_451,

 

     This is correct The covers and intensifiers will not work on the Mar 4 1.5-5x20 30mm Illuminated tube, but the cover and intensifiers will work on the 1.5-5x20mm 1" VX-III non-illuminated. From what I have heard they are working on getting one for this scope in the future....

Then you should update your product description here to reflect the correct fit. It currently says "The Alumina Intensifier Kits fit all 2004 and newer Leupold riflescope models (except LPS and the VX-III 1.5-5x20mm Illuminated model). For retrofit threading options on Leupold riflescope models manufactured prior to 2004, contact the Leupold Custom Shop at (503) 526-1400."

From what I can see it does not exclude the Mark 4 scope (56994) that I recently purchased.

To be fair, Leupold neglected to place the proper warning in their catalog. I now own a completely useless set of 20mm alumina filters (purchased elsewhere).

pyro_451,

 

You just informed us on this problem yesterday when you called. After I got off the phone with you I contacted Leupold about this problem... As far as the web site, it take time to make correction. I'm gather up all the correct information before we make the changes... Once again I do apologize.
