Considering a Mark 4 3-10

Leupold Mark AR 3x9 Mil Dot Review

By Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on July 4, 2014

A prefect match for my Colt M4 carbine. Very clear and bright for a 20mm scope and stays focused through the power range. Adjustments are great even though I shoot bullets in the 62gr. plus range I have no problem dialing in from 50 to 200 yards.
Pros: Crisp Optic's - Fine Adjustments
Cons: None...

Would recommend: Yes

I own both the Leupold Mark AR MOD 1 3-9x40 Firedot and 1.5-4x20 Firedot . Both are excellent scopes. They are not the most expensive Leupolds but they are more then adequate for all but the most abusive shooter. The Mark AR series has all the features of the VX-2 series with the added ability to get the illuminated Firedot which is not offered on the VX-2s.
The Firedot is perfect for my needs. I have used other fully illuminated reticles on the range and in the woods and have found that they wash out the scope when it starts to get dark. The Firedot on the other hand is just a small green dot in the middle of the crosshairs. The brightness can be adjusted and it does not wash out the scope at dawn or dusk. I have a 1.5-4 on my AR15 and AK47 it is great for 3 gun, CQB, and hunting in thicker woods. The 3-9 is currently on my 30-06 and has killed a few deer.
The dials are the 5.56 55 grain FMJ P5 CDS with .1 mil adjustments. Adjustments are smooth and accurate. Custom dials can be ordered from Leupold to match any round. I'm ordering dials for 7.62x39 and 30-06.

Would recommend: Yes

This was my first Leupold scope utilized on my AR15 platform. I highly recommend the firedot green reticle as it will assist in all lighting situations. Overall the scope is light, easy to dial-in, and optics are very clear. A great first scope that I know I will utilize for a very long time. If you are into target ranges for practice and/or hunting, I do not see any reason you can go wrong with this purchase. I will likely upgrade to a 3x9 leupold but I would never sell this one.

Chose this scope for my LWRC M6A2 SPR because it is light weight, has a good eye-relief range, an illuminated reticle, Leupold warranty, and was a good value. So far I am very pleased.
Pros: Light weight, good eye-relief range, an illuminated reticle (FireDot Model), Leupold warranty, relatively good value.
