What's the scoop on these scopes? The photos I've seen on SWFA look like newly designed turrets. Has anyone had a chance to handle one of these? They're not listed on Leupold's website yet. Is Leupy trying to improve they're position among the mid-price ranged tactical scopes?

The thing I notice is that the turrets are not as tall as the ones on my Mark 4 PR. I have often thought the ones on the PR are too tall to be a good choice if you are stalking through brush like the M1 turrets they will catch on everything you pass these Mk2 seem to be about the right size. I think that Leu has always realized that some police departments just are not willing to spend $1000 plus on glass even though they should as their liability is at stake.  As for Leu careing about the rest of us HAHA - they will do business as long as they get top dollar. I do like Leupolds and have some frighteningly expensive ones but when it comes down to it a Super Sniper 10x at $299 is a cant be beat value.

Thank you for the reply. I tried to garner some info on a predator hunting site that I frequent but got slammed by another frequent poster just for showing an interest/curiousity in this new model. Thanks again for your opinion.

Any new information on these?  See that they are listed on riflescopes.  Wondering if anyone has had a chance to look at them and compare glass.  Hope they give a chance for a lower priced yet quality option.  They might take the spot of the ss variables before they get here.
