U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- BEAVERTON, Ore. — Leupold & Stevens, Inc., provider of the world’s most rugged, lightweight, and clear riflescopes, is pleased to announce that its SX-4 Pro Guide HD Spotting Scope has been named “Editor’s Choice” by Petersen’s Hunting in the magazine’s annual gear issue.

The editorial staff at Petersen’s Hunting selected the Leupold SX-4 Pro Guide HD 15-45x65mm as the top spotting scope for 2020, specifically calling out its low-light performance, reliability,
and value.

“The SX-4 is compact and relatively light, making it portable for real world use,” Petersen’s editors said in their review. “Waterproof and fog proof internals and HD glass provides for a
capable optic in any conditions at a price that is within reach of many. At 15X this scope is great for range use, while 45X gives the user a clear view of all but the most distant animals.”

Built to take on the harshest conditions and perform all season long, the SX-4 Pro Guide HD spotting scope has found a home with hunters and shooters nationwide. You’ll see more in less
light with Leupold’s proprietary Twilight Max HD Light Management System, while a generous,  oversized eyebox, meanwhile, helps eliminate eye-strain and fatigue. Leupold has engineered it
from the ground up to deliver unparalleled optical quality in its class.

The entire Pro Guide HD observational line has been tested in extreme climates and guaranteed to provide the rugged performance that Leupold is known for. They are waterproof and fogproof,
and shed dirt and water for clear, crisp images with a Guard-ion lens coating.

“The SX-4 is a spotting scope for nay hunter shooter that absolutely requires top-of-the-line performance and rugged reliability in the field,” said Zach Bird, Product Line Manager for Leupold ; Stevens, Inc. “Thanks to the in-house optical engineering team that we have working right here every day in Beaverton, Ore., we’re able to bring our consumers the high-quality products they deserve, and we’re proud that the editors of Petersen’s Hunting recognize that.”

Everything except the price. If you have to ask you can’t afford it. Well, you people with money to throw around can.
The 15 to 45 models are $1040 each and the 20 to 60 models are $1300. MSRP.


Actually, that price is reasonable for a decent scope. If is is a decent scope, IDK. Leica and Swarovski scopes run up towards 3k without the eyepiece…which can go another 2k!!! Those, are “decent” scopes!

Get the Leupold SX-1 Ventana 2 20-60x80mm instead then! Optics Planet has it for around $400. It works. I have it. You do get better glass with the SX-2, SX-4 and SX-5 series, though. The SX-5 costs $2,340 MSRP!
