ART Scope on M1A

by L-Con, from United States, FL Written on December 4, 2014
This scope appears to work well, but the chart that comes with it for calibrating it is very limited and does not include some of the most common ammunition. The scope arrives already mounted in the rings, but I found mine to be canted to the right a bit. I loosened the ring screws to rotate the scope tube to remedy the cant and found the front mounting screws were already loose, or so I thought. I leveled the scope and as I was tightening the ring screws I found that the front ring cap was not recessed enough for the screws and that the mount threads were in fact stripped due to inadequate thread engagement because the screws were too short since the cap was not allowing enough protrusion of the threads to engage the mount. I emailed hi lux a week ago and have not heard back from them on this issue. Apparently quality control is not up to par. I will need a new front mount, cap, and screws now. They are not a standard size stocked by my local hardware store, or I would opt for screws that are a bit longer to remedy this. They don't match up with standard now metric screws that the hardware store stocks. The pitch appears to be non standard....
Pros:
  • Easy to use features
  • easy installation
Cons:
  • Quality Control
  • customer service
  • Setup is complicated when ammunition not listed on included chart is used.
Would recommend: Yes

Really Like it

by Dan G, from United States, OH Written on November 25, 2014
I put this on a Colt Le901. I guess i am kind of old school with an M1 and 1903a4. I saw the originals used in Vietnam. This scope mounted easily and have only been able to use it on a 100yd range. It looks really good on the LE901 ( old school ) and the combination is very accurate. I just purchased a LE6940 upper and have not had the chance to see if the scope will hold zero if a switch them from one to the other.

I am planning on getting another scope for the 6940 but this way I can use it as a backup if needed....
Pros:
  • Mounts quick and secure
  • good multi purpose
  • glass is clear and sharp
Cons:
  • Heavy scope
Would recommend: Yes

At KnobCreek Range this scope is a beast.

by TomTom269, from United States, KY Written on October 17, 2014
I have this scope mounted to my M1A and have fired a couple hundred rounds through it. I have had no trouble sighting this scope in so far. The first time my gunsmith bore sighted it and I had no trouble with it. The second time I needed to sight it I got that done easy enough. I have had more trouble with my Springfield M1A than I have had with any thing else. Buy it, switching range is that easy. Watch the videos a couple times, gain experience and you will enjoy this scope....
Pros:
  • accuracy
  • Easy mounting
  • easy of finding range
  • 10x
Cons:
  • Weight (oz) 26.30 , not really that bad for a scope with this quality and size of glass
Best Used for:
  • hunting
  • sport shooting
  • protection
Would recommend: Yes

excellent scope for the money.

by Bob Reese, from United States, TX Written on August 7, 2014
Ithink works very well on my 'AK' and I also transition it to my winchester '94' 30/30. With multiple setting for zeroing it, I can simple going to the setting for the weapon I am using and never loose the other setting for my other weapons. Great .. more than I expected....

Horrible scope.

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on December 6, 2013
I purchased the first M1000 and was excited to try it out on my new out of the box Remington model 700 VTR .308. I set up a sandbox target 4'x4' with an 18" square painted in the middle for referance. I moved out 100 yards and and used the alternated zero method to zero it in. After several shots I was not even hitting the target I tried holding over holding off shooting left right. Nothing... I moved in to 50 yards after a few shots a limb 6 feet above the target fell. All this after be zeroed by laser. Boxed up the scope and sent it back Optics Planet. I now have my 4th one sitting in the closet in it's box. I have never hit that target with one Leatherwood scope. I went down to Walmart and bought a $70 Center Point 4-16x40 used the same laser and was only off by 6 clicks down and 3 right @ 100 yards. I'm shooting 3/4 MOA with surplus FMJ ammo. I'll send the scope to Leatherwood one day, till then I'll rock the Center Point.
Pros: Looks cool
Cons: Everything else...

Leatherwood ART Camputer

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MD Written on April 17, 2013
Have had this mounted on on a Sig 556 DMR and have seen 100yd 3MOA accuracy at best with several factory loads and handloads tried. Placed a Leupold 3X9 vari-X II to rule out the DMR and shot 5 five shot groups of sub to 1.5 MOA with same ammo. Don't know if the Leatherwoods' mount is the issue or the optics.
I did find the reticle image to be rather cluttered and the noticeable parallax with halo around the edges to limit the scopes potential. The glass/coatings transfers better than average light with no abnormal color hues.
Pros: range finding feature
Cons: optics cluttered reticle distortion/parallax...

Leatherwood ART Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CO Written on January 22, 2013
I was surprised that quality was still good even though the manufacturing has moved to China. While I prefer to buy in the USA when possible I could not have afforded two if they were US made. (Sorry state of affairs, just true.) The instructions are straight forward and the mounting is simple. Would definately purchase more, if needed.
Pros: Well made, good price, fairly easy set-up.
Cons: The list of ballastics could be larger....

Scope broke after 12 rounds of 30-06

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, FL Written on August 6, 2012
At this writing, I am out $388.00
and have only been able to shoot 12 rounds. I mounted the M1000 scope to my Mossberg 100 ATR 30-06 and took it to the range. I was working to POA and 12 round into the sight in, the minute pins in the Zoom ring both broke of leaving me stranded. I called Hi-Lux/Leatherwood and spoke to a lady who sent me to an oriental gentelman in Tech. He informed me that I had the zoom ring to loose and that is what caused the breakage. He sent me back to the lady to get my address to send me a new one. Also, the range/zoom ring always had a very noticable lump at the 400 an 600 yd ranges. That was in May and after near 3 months I called again and got ahold of Chris Tully, the sales manager. He said to send in the scope w/ an RMA and he would make it functional. In May I sent pictures, and explanations of my delema...No response at all. So far a 3 month nightmare is all I have for my investment not counting the 20.00 lost range fee for the day and a 23.00 shipping bill. I had such high hopes for this scope, maybe Chris can make it right.
Cons: Zoom ring Pins are way too small. Need to be twice the dia....

Very good auto-ranging riflescope.

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 21, 2012
Though this scope is made in China, I found that quality was built into it. Fit and finish was great. It is very bright with smooth/snug moving components. Mil-dot reticle is 8x8 vice typical 10x10 mils disiplay. Solid mounting base. I wish these mil-dot scope would use mil-dot turrets vice MOA. Auto-ranging is very accurate provided the shooter can accurately judge objects that are 0.5m (20"). The range marks are in meters so keep this in mind when at a range that uses yards. I have used this scope for 2 years and have found it durable and it has not had any problems. Bullet drop cam worked flawlessly with dust, dirt in the mechanism.
Pros: Quality product, easy to use....
