Leatherwood Hi-Lux Optics "Wm. Malcolm" USMC SNIPER Scope Does Well At 2012 CMP Vintage Sniper Match

There was a new competitor on the firing line at this year's Vintage Sniper Match held at Camp Perry, OH during the Civilian Marksmanship Program's National Games on July 31 thru August 4, 2012.  And when the shooting ended that competitor walked away with the 2nd, 3rd and 11th place awards, plus placed in several other Top 25 spots.   We're talking about the new-made copy of the scope used by U.S. Marine Corps snipers during WWII - the Leatherwood/Hi-Lux "Wm. Malcolm" 8x USMC SNIPER scope, which was making its debut at the Camp Perry matches.

This is a new competition for Camp Perry.  Still, 241 two-man sniper teams competed, firing vintage scoped military rifles from the prone position.  Each team consists of a shooter and a spotter, and each team member first fires 10 rounds on a target at 300 yards, firing in 20 second intervals.  Both then repeat the sequence, spotting then shooting, at 600 yards.  Their scores are then combined for a team aggregate.

One observer said there had to be at least 50 of the new-made Hi-Lux Optic "Wm. Malcolm" 8x USMC SNIPER scopes on the line.  The scope had been in production for less than 6 months, and many shooters were amazed at how quickly the model has been accepted by serious competition shooters. 

Company president John Wu attended the match to speak with competitors, and says he was pleased to receive a tremendous amount of positive feedback, and to listen to the wants and needs of those competing in this match.  He said, "We appreciate everyone who took time to visit us and we congratulate all the competitors on helping this years' CMP match to be a very successful event."

Hi-Lux Optics PRO 30mm Riflescopes Are Built For The Serious Rifleman

Feature for feature, the Hi-Lux Optics PRO 30mm riflescopes easily compare to many higher priced models costing twice as much - or more.  The crafting of this model begins with a solid one-piece 30mm diameter high tensile strength aluminum tube.  Here is a full-featured scope for those shooters who like to keep a scope mounted low and closer to the bore.  The 1.5-6x model is built with a 42mm objective lens, while the 2.5-10x model comes with a 44mm objective lens.  Both offer an exceptionally big and bright sight picture.

Like all Hi-Lux Optics riflescopes, the air surfaces of every lens used in the construction of this great scope are fully multi-coated to insure maximum light transmission.  These scopes also come with crisp and precise target style windage and elevation adjustment turrets, with 1/4" click adjustment.   The 2.5-10x model  comes with the Hi-Lux Optics "No Math Mil-Dot" ranging system.  Just zoom in on a known 18-inch object  (like a deer's chest cavity from top to bottom) until it fits inside a grid incorporated in the reticle, then look at the range on the magnification power ring.  This model will range from 250 to 1,000 yards.

The PRO 30mm models are built tough to take on any terrain your hunts will take you into - and reliably hold alignment.  Compare this scope with any other 30mm scope of this class and you'll immediately realize what makes this series such a great buy.  The 1.5-6x model retails for $199, the 2.5-10x scope sells for $239.  Each comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
