Guns & Ammo Names Leupold® Mark 6® 3-18x44mm 2014 Optic of the Year
BEAVERTON, Ore. — Leupold & Stevens, Inc., is proud to announce the Mark 6® 3-18x44mm riflescope has been named Guns & Ammo 2014 Optic of the Year.
The 2014 award winners were chosen by a select group of staff and contributors from Guns & Ammo magazine. The awards were judged based on merits of performance, proven long-term durability, product value and availability to the consumer.
The staff was impressed by the Mark 6 3-18x44mm’s Tremor 2 reticle, 1/10th-mil pinch-and-turn turret adjustments, DiamondCoat™ 2 lens coatings, front focal plane reticles, power selector, Xtended Twilight Lens System™, length and weight.
“We are thrilled to receive this honor from Guns & Ammo,” said Pat Mundy, Director of Brand Communications for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Their expert staff sees and tests all the very best equipment, so their recognition of the Mark 6 is truly special.”
Guns & Ammo presents awards in six categories: handguns, rifles, shotguns, ammo, suppressors and optics. Manufacturers, sales and advertising representatives were not invited into the selection process.
The Mark 6 riflescope was designed with the help of tactical end users with “smaller, lighter, faster” in mind, and continues the Leupold® tradition of top-notch optics designed, machined, and assembled in the United States.
