BEAVERTON, Ore. — Team Leupold congratulates all participants in the 2011 International Sniper Competition held Sept. 26-30 in Ft. Benning,Ga.
The competition gave the world’s best snipers a place to meet and put their skills to the test on a level playing field. As an event sponsor, Leupold® Tactical provided competitors with its next-generation Mark 4® ER/T® 6.5-20x50mm M5A, which is part of the M2010 Sniper Weapon System.
“It was a privilege to be part of the International Sniper Competition and demonstrate the commitment Leupold Tactical has made to developing new optics for military and law enforcement professionals,” commented Kevin Trepa, vice president of Leupold Tactical Division.
Leupold engineers and product specialists were on site to oversee all technical details of the optics in use.
“Our objective was to observe our optics used firsthand by the sniper community and get feedback,” said Ray Brock, Leupold Tactical product line manager. “The Mark 4 M5A was well received and the snipers were excited to see new developments in optics that meet their needs.”
A total of 32 two-man teams from around the world participated in the competition. Approximately 25 teams used the Mark 4 M5A as their riflescope of choice. They had the opportunity to purchase the Leupold scopes used in the competition.
“The scopes were well received,” said Chris Estadt, military business development director for Leupold Tactical. “The shooters were amazed at how clear the glass was and the functionality of the new feature sets. We are looking forward to their continued feedback.”
