Perfect Scope For A Ruger GSR

by Trout Hunter, from United States, CA Written on December 24, 2014
This is an ideal scope for my new Ruger GSR Scout. The construction is solid, the sight picture is crisp, and the scope is both sturdy and dependable. The eye relief is perfect, as is the magnification. This scope is a winner!...

Leopoldo scout review

by Handgaurd, from United States, TX Written on December 4, 2014
Excelent optics.
Very sharp very clear light transmission.
2.5 x magnification does not sound like much but it really is.
Instant target acquisition
Worth the money for sure
One of my favorite scopes...

150 Rounds Later

by Mickey, from United States, NJ Written on December 3, 2014
Mounted the FX-II on my NIB Savage Scout and have journeyed to the range each month since July 2014. From 25 to 200 yards, using this scope to launch 150 rounds of 149 Grain 7.62X51mm Nato M80 has made me one satisfied customer.

One issue is the 3/4" required distange from the bend at the Occular Bell to the back of the rear ring. It causes the Occular End to extend approximately 3/8" over the breach. No amount of movement of the rings along the Weaver Rail can reduce that. It would have been nice to have known about the requirement before purchase, but at this point in time I can say that the FX-II was the right choice, over the Burris 2.75 IER.

The FX-II weighs an ounce more that the Burris, but it's larger diameter lets in more light and allows a greater field of view. Additionally, despite the lack of a focusing ring (for my old eyes), I believe that makes it just a little more rugged than the Burris which can be focused....
Pros:
  • field of view
  • gathers light well
  • appears rugged
Cons:
  • Weight (but expected and accounted for)
  • mounting restriction
  • lack of focusing ring
Best Used for:
  • Scout Rifles

Excellent Optics

by Mack, from United States, MN Written on November 24, 2014
Just what the Scout rifle needed. I tried a red dot scope but it was totally inadequate. The Leupold certainly stands up to it's reputation. The ease of picking up your target with the long eye relief was unbelievable. I was a little bit sceptic at first but that scepticism was completely unfounded....

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

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 Disgusted Customer, 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...
