The Best Riflescopes of 2020

Rugged, lightweight, and clear - these award-winning riflescope lines from Leupold feature new upgrades and proven performance, no matter the conditions.

Leupold Mark 5HD Riflescope

The award-winning Mark 5HD launched in early 2018 and combines elite optical performance, rugged reliability, and user-friendly features in a package that could only be produced by leveraging the 70 years of optics manufacturing expertise that Leupold possesses.

In 2019, Leupold introduced the highly anticipated MOA version of the Mark 5HD. The newest model takes everything you know and love about the Mark 5HD and combines it with a MOA measurement option. Whether you prefer MRAD or MOA, now there’s a Mark 5HD for you.

If bringing an MOA option to the market wasn’t enough, we also launched a 7-35x56 model for diehard long-range shooters. The scope gives you even more magnification to push past your limits and shoot any distance with confidence. And with the same dimensions and only 3 ounces more that its brother, the 5-25x56, you won't pay a size or weight penalty.

Designed to redefine what a riflescope can be, the Mark 5HD delivers all the features long-range shooters have been asking for in a user-friendly package. Elite professionals and top-level competition shooters were consulted throughout the design process, and the end result is a riflescope that provides edge-to-edge clarity, extreme low-light performance, increased travel, improved ergonomics, and rugged reliability.

The heart of the Mark 5HD is the all-new M5C3 ZeroLock adjustments, which provide precise, repeatable tracking with a dead-on return to zero. Offering a 35mm maintube and three revolutions of elevation adjustment, the Mark 5HD was built to max out the performance of the latest long range rifles and ammo. This riflescope is ergonomically designed with more tactile, audible click adjustments, larger numbers, illuminated reticles, and a high-speed throw lever, so you can put accurate fire downrange faster.

Pick up a Mark 5HD, and you’ll feel the difference: it’s up to 20 ounces lighter than other scopes in its class. Get behind one, and you’ll see the difference. And like all Leupold riflescopes, the game-changing Mark 5HD is designed, machined, and assembled in the USA and covered by Leupold’s Lifetime Guarantee.

Leupold VX-5HD Riflescope

Leupold’s VX-5HD riflescope – which has been recognized for its excellence by being named “Optic of the Year” by Guns & Ammo magazine – features a 5x erector assembly and defines relentless versatility. Its wide magnification ranges give hunters and shooters the ability to adapt to any environment.

For 2019, we wanted to make this already impressive family of scopes even better by adding a model featuring milliradian adjustments and a Tactical Milling Reticle (TMR). Designed to suit any potential need a recreational shooter or hunter might have, a Mil/Mil configuration ensures that those preferring an MRAD setup can still benefit from the line’s class-leading features.

Featuring Leupold's two-turn CDS ZeroLock 2 adjustment (Leupold’s proprietary Custom Dial System), you’ll have the confidence to take long-range shots without worrying about holdovers. Simply range your target, turn your CDS dial to match the range, and aim dead on.

In addition, Leupold’s Guard-ion lens coating shed water and dirt, keeping your target clear even when the weather isn’t, while Leupold’s Twilight Max HD light management system delivers the maximum amount of usable light to your eye for unmatched low-light performance and clarity.

Take this riflescope out for the day, and you’ll quickly realize the award-winning VX-5HD is everything you've wanted and more. So, if you demand crystal clear HD glass, repeatable performance, and one of the lightest optics in its class, look no further than the VX-5HD riflescope. And like every riflescope offered by Leupold, the VX-5HD is designed, machined, and assembled in Beaverton, Oregon and is backed by Leupold's legendary Lifetime Guarantee.

Leupold VX-Freedom Riflescope

Leupold’s award-winning line of VX-Freedom riflescopes deliver relentless, class-leading performance at an unbeatable price point. New for 2020, Leupold has added five illuminated and numerous CDS (Custom Dial System) models to the VX-Freedom family, ensuring that it remains the most versatile scope line in its class.

All five 2020 illuminated models feature a 30mm maintube and an illuminated reticle – helping shooters see their aiming point even in the most challenging conditions. Like all of Leupold’s illuminated riflescopes, the new VX-Freedom features the company’s Motion Sensor Technology (MST), which puts the FireDot into a battery-saving standby mode after five minutes of inactivity. When the MST detects motion, it instantly activates the sight, so it's ready when you are. A manual mode allows the sight to be shut off when not in use – like when you’re posted up on a ridgeline waiting for a deer, or when your rifle has been returned to its place in your gun safe.

The VX-Freedom delivers the legendary Leupold performance and dependability hunters and shooters have demanded for decades, combined with a host of new and improved features. The entire VX-Freedom line is designed, machined, and assembled right here in the U.S.A. with one purpose in mind – to give you the freedom to put a Leupold on any hunting rifle, .22, AR, or long gun you own, knowing it will perform for a lifetime.
