>>27539756 It's expensive because Leupold thinks their Barska-tier scopes are on par with NF and that their Nikon-tier scopes are on par with fucking March. >there can be no other explanation for why the Mk6 has a $2600 MSRP and the Mk8 has a $3400 MSRP despite both being objectively inferior to the NF ATACR or Vortex Razor HD2 lines, which are both in turn inferior to USO which is in turn inferior to stuff like Unertl or S&B which is in turn inferior to March, which only costs ~$3000
Also, the LCO loses zero if you shake the rifle it's on. Or at least the one at SHOT did, the zero turrets were so loose literally shaking the rifle would turn them.
No, it's not worth $1200. With the issues Eotech's been having with -all- its products (problems the LCO will also have since they use the same glass and boards), I'd say it's not worth the ~300 you could get a used EXPS2 for.
>>27539858 Well, the one you linked to looks like a VX-R Patrol 1.65-4x (advertised as 1.25-4x, it's not, it's been independently tested, Leupold's currently being sued over it), which costs twice what a Vortex 1.0-4x costs (and the vortex has better glass and "we don't care how you broke it" lifetime warranty).
Literally the only Leupolds that've EVER been worth buying were the VXIII low-mag scopes (1.5-5x, 2-7x, or 3-9x), and they were NEVER great on price:perf, just 'worth buying'.
For an AR right now, if you can spend >$200 Vortex for all magnification ranges. If you can spend <$200 Primary Arms for all magnification ranges. Full stop.
>>27539956 Look at primary arms weather tests. Their 1-6 that I have on my AR10 can be frozen, packed in snow, both over night, dropped, fucked with, whatever without damage.
They're very good quality, /k/ just assumes that because Trijicon can away with 1400 dollar ACOGs on brand, and military contract alone, that if an optic doesn't cost in that same price range, its shit. Oh, and I don't remember which scope it was, but at one point, Primary Arms won a military contract nut because some of the parts were from china, the military backed out.
