Leupold Scout Scope Review

by RC, from United States, MO Written on August 5, 2014
I have purchased 3 of these scopes now, and I cannot recommend them enough. One is used on an AR-15, and the other two are mounted on top-eject Winchester Model 94s. The glass is bright and clear from edge to edge, the adjustments are crisp and repeatable, and the extended eye relief makes getting on target very easy. The duplex reticle is clean and easy to use. The only drawback to this scope is that with a small objective lens and 1 inch main tube, it does not allow in enough light to shoot in dark conditions. I imagine if that's a concern the scope could be ordered with an illuminated reticle, but for my purposes it is more than sufficient just the way it is....
Pros:
  • Ext Eye Relief
  • Compact Size
  • Positive Adj
  • Generous Field of View
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • hunting
  • Top-Eject Lever Actions
Would recommend: Yes

Great scope ...lousy service

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, TX Written on June 24, 2014
I received and love the scope. I will probably order another one for a different gun...but OpticsPlanet forgot to send the rings I ordered. I understand everyone fouls-up once in awhile. The problem is that so far...no replacement...no explanation. I am moving my business to Midway!
Pros: I really like the scope
Cons: Optics Planet horrible customer service...
Would recommend: Yes

Not much competition.

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MS Written on August 6, 2013
Don't get me wrong, this is a great scope. I do recommend to anyone with a scout style rifle. I researched all of the options to try to get low cost and good quality. This one won. It went on my .308 Ruger Gunsite. 2.5x power is just a bit low for the caliber. Does what I need it to, but would have liked a higher power option. Still, great fit and finish. Looks great on it, too.
Pros: Good quality construction. Clear picture.
Cons: Expensive for what it is....
Would recommend: Yes

Leupold FX2 2.5x28

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, VT Written on March 20, 2013
I must be spoiled by my "older" Leupold M8 2.5x28 scout scope because the newer FX2 is not even a close second in optical quality. I have 20/20 and the optics were not in focus for me and there is no adjustment. I think they lowered the bar regarding quality. Sent it back and now considering a Burris 2.75x scout scope.

Pros: Light weight
Cons: Disappointing optics...
Would recommend: No

Leupold FX-II Scout Rifle Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TN Written on March 10, 2013
The extended eye relief needs darker or bolder outside crosshairs. The ultra fine crosshairs are great to define the impact point.
Pros: Extended eye relief(approx. 9"), clarity
Cons: Ultra fine crosshairs...

cannot focus eyepiece

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on January 9, 2013
Am I the only old guy a little far-sighted? All my other scopes can be focused. May exchance for the Burris scope which has adjustable focus. I called to return it and was #29 on the waiting list, so I guess I'll have to make arrangements online for refund/replacement.
Pros: nice looking scope
Cons: lack of focus makes it unusable for me...
Would recommend: Yes
