This year at the first Northwest Shooting Sports Expo, Leupold was in the house with its custom shop products in tow. That’s right, Leupold has a custom shop and they had a booth all to themselves. What you can expect from these guys are customizations to Leupold’s off-the-shelf products with quick delivery and agile capabilities.
Three custom features are shown in these photos:
• Leupold ITL — integrated throw lever — system, offering scope throw levers in various styles and length options. These give the user a much greater purchase on the zoom adjustment dial allowing for faster, more positive adjustment plus the ability to more easily find the dial without breaking cheek weld.
• Zero Lock-2R, which is a new zero-step technology in the elevation turret. The turret is locked at your zero, and pressing the button will release the turret for adjustment. Within the first rotation the button protrudes, but upon entering the second rotation it sits flush.
• An illumination dial has been substituted in place of a button, and the scope illumination is in green rather than the normal red.
Leupold’s Custom Shop also provides custom finishes, ballistically matched turrets (CDS — custom dial system) and reticles, laser engraving, custom scope builds, and more.
Hat tip to my friend, “CASES4CASES,” for attending NWSSE and snagging photos and info for us.
