What are your opinions on the Leupold Mark4-M3 6x tactical scope? & Why did Leupold dicontinue this scope?  I beleive there is a market/need for a intermediate power scope such as this..... Oh yeah- I have made 600 yard kills on Prarie dogs using this scope & its BDC system!

M3          scopes adjust 1moa per click elevation and 1/2 moa per click windage.  Most shooters want the 1/4 moa adjustments to fine tune their shots and this becomes even more important at distance. Most shooters also want a variable power scope. Leupold scopes are quite expensive and models that do not sell well will be discontinued. When you are talking about a tactical scope the market is the U.S. Military and Police departments so individuals may get the benefit of being able to get the same model but if it is not selling to the Military or to Police its gone and for the most part they want variable power scopes. US Army does uses some Mk4 10x M3 scopes on the M24 but I would be willing to bet the next generation of scopes is a variable power hopefully with FFP.  I would actually like to see adjustment knobs the height of the M3  on  some of the better Mk 4 LRT scopes something shorter than the M1 knobs but still 1/4 moa clicks.

For a good 6x42 tactical see the IOR it is awesome glass equal to or better than my Mark 4 10x M3.
