One of the big weaknesses of the mark series is some will hold zero through vibration like a rock others you look harsh and its all over the place. Just be sure to confirm zero after you have ridden it in the trunk down bumpy roads a bit.

Dont trust a leupold optic till you confirm its not defective. My mk4 went back 3 times before i said f-it and sold it.

Will do. I'm still not sold on the Mark AR. I really like the SPR Reticle on the 1-4x20. Also looking at Burris but the reticle on the Mark AR 1-4x20 has got me intrigued.

Thanks for your input Jon.

The Burris is really not bad for a cheap optic.

Went to Cabelas for a couple hours today and fondled a bunch of different glass. Nothing looked as good as the Mark AR 1.5-4x20 with the SPR Reticle. Ordered it from Primary Arms along with ADM Scout. Will do a review once I get some range time.
