I have a 4X Leupold scope with a version of the post and cross hair reticle. Instead of a vertical post with only a horizontal cross hair, it has a conventional cross hair reticle with  the bottom half of the vertical cross hair thicker forming a post. Does Leupold still offer this style of reticle?  Does any one other than Leupold offer changes to the reticle in Leupold scopes?

I THINK I know what you're talking about, but could you possibly take a picture of it through the scope?

For what it will cost you to change a reticle you are better off to buy a scope that has the reticle you like inside it.  The post used to be a lot more common than it is today. As far as a post goes these are pretty cool :
Trijicon 1-4x24 Accu-Point 30mm Rifle Scope Red Triangle Trijicon 1-4x24 Accu-Point 30mm Rifle Scope
Stock # - TR24R
  • Matte
  • Red Triangle
  • 30mm
$1,020.00

Leupold doesn't offer that anymore.  I had one once.

Thank you for your replies. What I find interesting about this is that we're talking about a "custom" option. I understand why Leupold or any other manufacturer doesn't offer P & C as a standard reticle these days. It was popular in the 1940's, 50's and 60's, but fell out of favor for the duplex. But as an option from a "custom shop" it would seem to be a valid option for some one who wants a simpler sight picture or a good woods rifle scope. I have a couple of Weavers with the P & C reticle, but they are getting close to fifty years old and we know older scopes are less sturdy than their modern day counterparts. Frustrating for somebody who doesn't want or need a scope reticle with lots of extra lines cluttering up their sight picture.

Leupold does have the German #4 that might be an acceptable substitute. Especially in a woods rifle for low light usage. I find the standard duplex reticles in their scopes to be lacking in that regard.

That's the German #1 reticle. My personal favorite by a long shot but your mileage may very. Maybe a little worse for long range duty but otherwise the German #1 is a mighty fine reticle. Too bad it has been dropped in the US other than a few Leica's hanging around.
