Worked great for ruger scout rifle

by Bryan, from United States, WI Written on September 23, 2014
Purchased ruger scout rifle and was not sure if I should use iron sights or pop for a scope or red dot. After some research I decided to go with scope due to longer range capabilities of .308 cartridge. Quite pleased with the results. Lower fixed power scope seems like good compromise between fast on target and magnification for longer shots. Leupold quality is always a plus.

Lots of discussion regarding what height scope rings needed. Many recommend medium height but I opted for low rings and believe this was the way to go! Good cheek weld and minimal barrel offset....
Pros:
  • Quality, clarity and price
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes

Scout Scope

by Washooter, from United States, WA Written on September 16, 2014
I bought this scope to mount on my Ruger Gunsite Scout. While there was infinite options, I decided to stay with the "Scout" concept - easy target acquisition, long eye relief, simplicity of fixed power. Optic is classic Leupold quality, near perfect glass and finish....
Pros:
  • Leupold Quality
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes

Nice scope

by ZIB, from United States, PA Written on September 3, 2014
I like this scope. It fit on my ruger scout rifle. I shot it. Now it's in my gun safe. Nice scope. Really nice scope. It was the only one I could afford. I'd rather of had an acog. It's really nice though....

Leupold Scout is the ticket

by hussssh, from United States, MT Written on August 29, 2014
This scope has bright and clear optics. The 1/4 moa adjustments are "spot on" and easy to read, numbered in 1 moa increments and its easy to reset zero. I have used this scope on an M1 Garand to shoot a steel plate match with targets from 100 - 500yd in odd increments and it performed flawlessly and was good for a second place finish on an M1 against all sorts of modern bolt action sporters and varmint rifles. I have tried some other brands that drove me nuts with mushy clicks, poor parallax, and breaking reticles so I rate this offering as the best scout scope currently available!...

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...

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
