Leupold Carbine Optic (LCO) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best dang red dot i have ever owned! The Leupold LCO has a huge field of view, which makes it absolutely fantastic to shoot both eyes open with. The dot has brightness settings that make it huge and visible in the sun, and it can be dialed all the way down to a nice crisp dot in low light conditions. The auto wake feature in this thing is pretty cool, and the battery lasts a very long time. It has perfect cowitness out of the box for AR height sights, and the adjustment clicks have a positive feedback. The LCO has great return to zero when removed and re-installed. Overall I give this thing a 10/10. Leupold hit it out of the park with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Red Dot on the market...PERIOD!!! I bought this two months ago and have put 1,000 rounds through my AR so far and this thing is dead on. I set the zero and it hasn't moved a bit. I love Leopold optics and have 100% confidence in their craftsmanship and durability so I forked over a little extra cash than I was hoping to spend with high expectations. My key reason for spending so much on a red dot was the lifetime warranty and ability to add their unique magnifier later on. I have this optic on a high-end AR and the quality and finish on this sight is perfect and compliments my rifle perfectly. I would feel confident putting my life on the line with this rifle in my hands. I've spend 4-1/2 years in combat overseas and I can assure you that next time I go this will be on the flight with me. The 1 MOA dot is crisp and allows for very precise shot placement with 1/4 MOA click adjustments. The massive 32mm aperture allows for a huge FOV during reflexive fire and really dominates all the other red dot sights I've tried. The overall shape and design is awesome. I love that it's a different design than every other red dot optic out there. I can't wait to get my hands on a magnifier and see this combo truly shine to its full capacity. If you are on the fence trying to decide if this optic is "just another red dot" I can promise you its not. Spend the money and get the best and you will never look back. Thank you Leuopold for another amazing product!
