This was my first product design at Leupold – The illuminated Prismatic 1x14mm rifle scope (MSRP $499).  This scope has a magnification of 1x so you can operate with both eyes open for the superior depth perception and wide field of view that’s crucial for fast target acquisition and reactive shooting.  This was designed with different height mounting spacers to accomodate several weapon platforms.  Also compatible with the A.R.M.S. #22-34mm Throw Lever type mount.  Index Matched Lens System for clarity, brightness, and contrast.  Thickest maintube ever in a Leupold product – meant to be stout and rugged.  Waterproof.  Illumination is a single tact push button with plenty of inteligence such as hold for power on/off, auto-off, and push to cycle through brightness.

This is my SolidWorks model anodized Dark Earth.

For comparison to my SolidWorks model, here's a catalog shot of the real thing in matte black.

  

 

Here's my SolidWorks model with Butler Creek objective flip cover, eyepiece flip cover, illumination assembly, and quick release Picatinny rail mount. Depicted in the lower right is the illuminated circle dot reticle.
