Beaverton, OR -(Ammoland.com)- Leupold, America’s Optics Authority, has been selected to deliver Mark 6 3-18x44mm riflescopes to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Designated for use by the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team (HRT), the Mark 6 3-18x44mm delivers a wide magnification range in a compact, efficient package perfect for urban environments as well as extended rural settings.

“The world’s most elite military and law enforcement units are finding the Mark 6 3-18x44mm to be the complete package,” said Wilson Timothy, director of tactical and international sales at Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “The 3 to 18 power range covers almost any scenario these groups may experience, all in a riflescope that’s less than 12 inches in length.”

The Mark 6 3-18x44mm riflescope has been selected by a number of agencies and departments for its rugged durability, exceptional optical quality, and American design, machining and assembly. As part of the ECOS-O (Enhanced Combat Optic Sight – Optimized) program, the Mark 6 3-18x44mm was selected by the Naval Special Warfare Center.

In addition, the past two International Sniper Competitions have been won using the Mark 6 3-18x44mm by SSGT Daniel Horner and SPC Tyler Payne. The famed Los Angeles Police Department Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team has also made the Mark 6 3-18x44mm the standard optic for the unit’s precision rifles.

“We especially want to remind rifle manufacturers that may be submitting weapons for the U.S. Army’s Compact Semi Automatic Sniper System (CSASS) trials that the Mark 6 3-18x44mm has been accepted and approved in a number of military contracts,” Timothy said. “There are a number of details to worry about in any military contract process, but your optic does not need to be one.”
