Leupold Mark 8 3.5-25x56mm M5B2 Delivers Success at any Distance


Leupold’s Tactical Optics division introduces the Mark 8 3.5-25x56mm M5B2 riflescope, giving serious shooters the flexibility and precision necessary for making surgical long-range shots.

With a wide 8x zoom range, the Mark 8 3.5-25x56mm M5B2 gives operators a wide field of view at lower settings, yet still provides excellent long-range target discrimination at higher powers.  Illuminated front focal plane reticles allow for accurate ranging and shot calls at any magnification under any lighting conditions.

“The modern warfighter and law enforcement officer needs to be flexible, able to fulfill roles from long-range marksman to urban intelligence gathering,” said Kevin Trepa, vice president, tactical division for Leupold & Stevens, Inc.  “The wide power range on the Mark 8 3.5-25x56mm M5B2 allows one operator to control his fire zone from 100 yards out to the maximum reach of his rifle.”

With a choice of a Mil Dot reticle or a Horus Vision H58 reticle, operators can be assured of precise ranging and holds at all distances.  Seven illuminations, with an off position between each one, extends battery life while ensuring “on” is just one click away.  Night-vision compatibility means the Mark 8 3.5-25x56mm M5B2 is combat-ready in any environment, night or daytime.

A 35mm maintube provides more than 25 milliradians of total elevation adjustment and features the M5B2 adjustment:

  • 0.1 mil-per-click elevation adjustments (M5) that allows for easy and precise corrections
  • Auto-Locking Pinch and Turn (B) to eliminate accidental movement in the field
  • Two-turn (2) zero stop elevation dial with a tactile revolution indicator, providing 20 mils of travel (10 mils per revolution) while eliminating under- or over-rotation of the dial

Quick change Bullet Drop Compensation (BDC) rings allow the Mark 8 3.5-25x56mm M5B2 to maintain its accuracy between multiple long-range cartridges.

Leupold’s Xtended Twilight Lens System provides superior light transmission for the best low-light performance, particularly in the blue/violet light of dawn and dusk.  The system produces an extremely bright, sharp image across the Mark 8 3.5-25x56mm M5B2’s entire visual field.
