Built For The Shooter

The Mark 3HD comes loaded with shooter-specific features, including precise MIL-based adjustments, multiple MIL reticle options, and a high-speed power selector with a removable throw lever. Select models come with the new P5 external dial with 1/10th MIL adjustments and high-contrast adjustment markings. Combine all that with Leupold’s long heritage of manufacturing military-grade optics, and the Mark 3HD is the clear choice for shooters looking to put an industry-leading optic on top of everything from a low-power close-range AR to a high-power long-range rifle.

Adjustable Illumination

Adjustable FireDot illumination makes it easy to identify and aim at long-distance targets in low-light situations. But we wanted to make using an illuminated reticle even easier, so we introduced dial illumination control to select Mark 3HD scopes. Now, adjusting your illumination is as simple as turning a dial so you can make quick changes on the fly with total confidence. And the Mark 3HD is supported by Leupold’s Motion Sensor Technology, which extends the battery life of your scope by going into sleep mode after five minutes of inactivity.

Legendary HD Performance

The superior optical quality of the Mark 3HD sets it apart from other scopes on the shelf. Serious shooters need an optic that can effectively manage light to deliver a crisp, bright image while maintaining high contrast and resolution even in the harshest conditions. The HD performance of Leupold’s Elite Optical System puts the Mark 3HD far ahead of other optics in its class, giving you the true advantage over the competition.

Lightweight, Rugged, and Guaranteed for Life

The Mark 3HD is 100% waterproof, fogproof, and guaranteed to perform for life. In fact, if it ever fails, we will repair or replace it for free - whether you’re the original owner or not. You don’t need proof of ownership or a warranty card, and there’s no time limit. We do this because we believe in superior quality and craftsmanship, and we’re confident your Leupold won’t let you down.
