Note: This is identical to the TS-30A2 scope with turret BDC for 7.62mm 168gr M118LR ammunition. Well, maybe not identical, but it is the same scope.
This scope does not have the exterior hash marks or the correct BDC turret, but in all other aspects, in the same scope as the TS30-A2, model 112633, at a slightly lower price point.
The one thing you need to know about Charlie's grading, is we are tough. We take some scopes and a very small number of collector / clone items in trade, or we buy from other dealerships that are selling large lots of inventory. We look for the good stuff. This scope is graded high, B+. One of the reasons we are tough graders are that we want you to buy a demo, used or open box item, and say, "wow." Take a look at our reviews. The other reason we are tough graders is that we just cannot take the time to take pics of each inidivual item. For this scope, we regulaly get in used or demo models, so we know what we are looking for. Glass has to be near perfect, or we don't take it. A high grade means there might be a smudge on the lens, but no scratches. Sometimes we will grade "B" with very minor scratching, but at the end of the day, it is the quality of the scope and the functionality that matters. A B+ rating might show very minor scope ring evidence, but no maring, and not scratches on the surface of the tube. There could be evidence of previous painting. Typically, if the scope was painted, you will find thei on the magnification knob, as it is hard to get those super-clean. You might see some wear on the serial number area under the scope. Other than that, a high rating is close to new.
Designed specifically for mid range applications, the Leupold Mark 4 Mid Range Tactical Rifle Scope is ideal for competition or for tactical purposes. They feature easy to adjust tactical turrets and range estimating reticles while the 30mm tube provides greater strength and more light transmission. These scopes are completely water, fog and shockproof and come with flip up lens caps. Covered by Leupold's Full Lifetime Guarantee.
Charlie's editorial comment: The one thing I continue to get amazed at, is just how many different model numbers Leupold has for the same scope, or maybe one small variety. For example, the 67925 and 60170, if someone can explain the difference to me, great. The only difference we can find at Charlie's is the year the scope was made. The 67925 is generally a 2014 to 2017 manufacture date, give or take. You cannot hide these things, as the box has the "born on date" if you have the original Leupold box. The 60170 is more in the 2007 to 2010 vintage. But, remember, this scope, as the TS30, A1, A2, et. seq., was all produced initially in 2000 or so for the SPR program, before the War on Terror began, and the scopes make their way to the Mk12.
Anyway you look at this scope -- in mil dot or TMR (which is effectively mil dot with different shapes) -- this scope has seen a very long period of action, from 2000 in the SPR program, to wide-spread use on the Mk12 Mod0 and then the Mod1, and then, nearly 20 years from the first design, the same scope makes its way to the USMC m27 infantry platform. This scope is a classic, in whatever form or model you choose to buy, if you can find it. :)
