Hello just another quick question for all you leupold experts.
Was the M8 6X42 ever made with any of these??
PA ring on the front??
Target style turrets??
And mildots or dot reticle??
Or maybe all 3.
I have seen one for sale today secondhand with all 3 and i have never seen one before.
But if i remember correctly Prem reticles did things like this to scopes.(except the PA)

Thank you

Leupold did make a Tactical 6x42 that had adj. obj. mildots, target turrets w/ 1/4" clicks and was fully multicoated.  Part # was 50230 with the mildot.  If the gold ring is black then it was one of these.

 

The new FXIII have the index matched lenses like the new VXIIIs.

 

Multicoat 4 lens coating was added to the 6x42 M8 series starting in 1990.  Before that the m8 6x42 only had the single coating lenses.

Glazer, I have one mounted on a Webley Patriot airgun for night time pests in the garden and it it is real sweet. Clear and bright and I don't always have to use my mounted Surefire. This gun has severe recoil and I have gone through three mounts to get it right. The PA is nice for target shooting and shooting at cans at 80 yards.
