Mark 8 1.1-8x24mm CQBSS M5B1 Front Focal is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
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 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.

34mm Maintube

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Waterproof

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.

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.

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.
