Mark 8 1.1-8x24mm CQBSS M5B1 Front Focal

From close quarters to long range target engagements, the Leupold Mark 8 CQBSS 1.1-8x24mm incorporates everything Military, Law Enforcement and Competition shooters need into one extremely versatile riflescope. The illuminated front focal plane reticles provide accurate range estimation throughout the entire zoom range. Eight brightness settings ensure optimal visibility of the illuminated reticle in all lighting conditions and are compatible with night vision devices. An off position between each numbered brightness setting ensures long battery life and nearly instant return to the desired reticle intensity. The 34mm Maintube and twin bias spring erector system provides over 40 Milliradians of total windage and elevation adjustment. Auto-Locking Pinch & Turn 1/10th Mil click adjustments make precise corrections quick and easy, yet eliminate accidental movement in the field. Quick change BDC (Bullet Drop Compensation) rings allow the scope to be matched to virtually any ammunition for long range precision. The Mark 8 CQBSS is completely waterproof, fog proof, and backed by the Legendary Leupold Mark 4 Warranty. The ultimate blend of rapid target acquisition, precision, and rugged durability, the Mark 8 CQBSS eliminates compromise. ©

Mark 8 1.1-8x24mm CQBSS M5B1 Front Focal is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from For long-range targets, this is worth every penny This scope gives me an advantage on long range targets and since I have some damage to my retina, the magnification and quality have helped me see things that used to be difficult to see. I use a CMR-W reticle, and the windage aiming points are helpful to me as well with my vision issues. Some people have told me this would be heavy for a competition rifle as a woman, but I don't finnd it heavy at all. You can only shoot what you can see, and this will help you see!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leupold MK 8, Mildot on Barrett MRAD 300 winmag Glass: 10/10 Structural integrity: 10/10 Turrets: 8.9/10 Size: 10/10 Price: 8/10 Great product overall. However if you are going to buy this for occasional use only, then i wouldn't recommend it. I have used this optic non stopped and have had no issues with it. *The turrets are very high quality/solid, however i'd like them to be a little more crisp. *The price is dependent on how often you are going to use the weapon system. If your going to use this all the time, well than I think its worth it. Thanks, Leupold Sincerely, Matt La Rue

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough as a boat anchor For the record, I'm a sponsored shooter of Leupold. With that said, I don't use products that I don't believe in 100% and I refuse to lie about a product. In both competition and hunting I have used the Leupold Deltapoint, Deltapoint Pro, Prismatic, LCO, DEVO, VX2, VX3, Mark 4, Mark 6, and Mark 8 lines. I cannot say enough good things about their quality, features, and variety. Specifically, the Mark 8 1.1-8 is not a light scope, but I feel confident I could drive over it with a Ford Focus and I would still be okay. I prefer FFP scopes and love the simplicity of the TMR reticle. The lens system is extremely bright, something that is useful when the range schedule falls behind. These parts are man-made, and man-made things will fail. That leads me to my final thought about Leupold. No matter what is is you are shooting, I know that I will be taken care of in the off chance that my scope fails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battle Tested I used this optic (H59 version) exclusively throughout my recent tour down range and it preformed flawlessly.I purchased this on my own dime, as I was not satisfied with the ACOG, ELCAN, or EOTECH options that I had at work. M4: Though it is a touch heavy on an M4 gas gun, TGT acquisition was super fast while using the red dot, and doable in the event I didn't have time to turn it on. It really shined when I was shooting out past 300. You know its good when TM Mates are asking you to look on ridge lines to PID dudes- so much for the ACOG with doctor sight option. Durability: It maintained zero through multiple incidents (MAT-V door was closed on it twice), in addition to daily abuse on the range and on OPS in some seriously extreme conditions ranging from 30-135 degrees, rain, fog, and dust storms. The battery never failed me either and I often switched the optic between M4 5.56 and the SCAR Heavy. For those who are wondering, a MAT-V door weighs in excess of 800# constructed from solid steel. Tracking: While I was a Designated Marksman on the SCAR Heavy using 118LR ammunition, I was accurately engaging E-Type steel and "other" sized targets out to 800m+ with first round hits. Not too shabby for an 8 power and only possibly with top notch glass to discern the faint details. I also ran a ladder test, and it was spot on throughout the full spectrum. Glass quality: The glass is equal to Schmidt Bender PMII 5-25X56 we used on our bolt guns as far as clarity and brightness. Not trying to compare the 2, but its widely known that the PMII is the standard that all other scopes are measured too. It also performed well while calling winds and making corrections for the 300 win shooters. FFP is a must have. Functionality: The ocular power ring is sheer genius. While being a participant in a two way range I can attest to this. The pinch turret design that everyone complains about online- yea, I had no problems with it. Frankly speaking, im glad it has it. I had that warm and fuzzy feeling knowing its impossible for it to move. Its also handy when you forget your wrench while zeroing. You simply slip the rings later. Night Vision: Using NVG`s, it is possible to to turn the dot on the faintest setting and engage targets out to 300 with decent loom. Be forewarned, you catch some recoil in the face! Negative: Both the front and rear flip up lens covers were ripped off at some point during the initial OPS. The rear cover was cumbersome from day one, so NBD. I did appreciate the fact the were aluminium vs plastic though. Future Possibilities: I re-purposed this scope on my 338 WIN for dark timber elk rifle. After a quick zero, my friend made the longest shot of his life- first round hit: 737 yards on 18 inch steel plate. IMO, you can`t ask for a better Dark Timber Optic for out West. Illuminated day time reticle, 1-8 power, with the ability to dial up elevation for a ethical cross canyon shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Scope! The scope is very robust with flawless fit and finish. It will hold up to a lifetime of use. The glass is fantastic without any distortion. At 1.1X magnification, the focus is crystal clear from the exit of the scope all the way to long distances. As you increase the magnification, the focus stays spot on at further distances. It truly is a CQBSS scope. The turrets are awesome with the squeeze the rotate and release to lock function. Makes for very quick and precise changes in elevation and windage. The large surface area of the magnification ring is a big plus for quick magnification changes without fiddling around. I have the M-TMR reticle. At 1.1X the larger outer crosshairs make for quick acquisition of targets close in. As you increase the magnification, the finer center crosshairs come to life for making accurate and precise shots out to far distances. The illumination is not daytime bright. This may be an issue for people who love red dots. However, given all the other features and functionality, it's truly a top shelf scope.

2nd Generation Argon/Krypton Waterproofing

While we still waterproof other optics with bone-dry nitrogen – technology pioneered by Leupold® – Select models feature our exclusive, proprietary Argon/Krypton gas blend. Its advantages are two fold: it nearly eliminates the effects of thermal shock, and the Argon/Krypton molecules are significantly larger than nitrogen molecules, reducing the diffusion of gases sealed inside your scope even more than our proven nitrogen technology already does. We pioneered riflescope waterproofing, and now with Argon/Krypton we’re exceeding the standards we set ourselves.

34mm Maintube

8:1 Zoom Ratio

With an astonishing 8:1 zoom ratio, shooters will no longer sacrifice precision for field of view. The wide 8X magnification range offers an incredible field of view at lower magnifications, and excellent long-range target discrimination at higher powers.

Alumina Threaded Lens Covers

Blackened Lens Edges

Blackened lens edges reduce unwanted glare and diffusion through the lens edges to provide better resolution, improved contrast and superior optical perrformance.

DiamondCoat 2

Exterior lens surfaces are treated with DiamondCoat 2™, an ion-assist lens coating, for higher light transmission and the greatest level of abrasion resistance we’ve ever offered. DiamondCoat already exceeds military standards for hardness and durability. DiamondCoat 2 offers unsurpassed durability and will prove its worth in the wildest places on earth. DiamondCoat 2 has the additional advantage of assisting in light transmission, for greater brightness, clarity and contrast.

Extreme Fast-Focus Eyepiece

The extreme fast-focus eyepiece ensures a generous eyebox, superior field of view and optimal diopter adjustment in the field. It allows the the user to adjust through the full range of diopter adjustment in one complete turn of the eyepiece.

Front Focal Plane (FFP)

The reticle magnifies along with the image, so you can estimate range at all magnification settings. These reticles are ideal in tactical situations, yet also provide greater accuracy of range estimation for hunters and target shooters.

Generous Eyebox

The generous eyebox makes it faster and easier to get your eye behind the riflescope and achieve a full, clear sight picture. Setting up for longer shots you'll appreciate the flexibility it affords, and in close up big game or dangerous game situations the quick target acquisition will be the difference maker. At high power, the longer eye relief and more generous eyebox gives you incredible head position latitude and an improved sight pictue that fills the eyepiece completely - putting you in better position to make the shot of a lifetime.

Index Matched Lens System

A Leupold® exclusive, this system has nearly perfected Leupold’s already impeccable light management. Leupold engineers specify different coating materials for each lens surface in the riflescope, based on the lens’ index of refraction, placement and function, layering each coating to eliminate reflections and maximize light transmission. The result is unparalleled brightness and extremely sharp resolution across the entire visual field.
