Leupold riflescopes, binoculars, and spotting scopes are iconic in the optics world—not only for their signature gold ring, but also for their unparalleled commitment to quality. The United States Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Secret Service, and Navy SEALs all trust Leupold scopes in high stakes situations where accuracy is imperative.
Founded in the USA in 1907, Leupold & Stevens began producing equipment for surveying and water monitoring. On a hunting trip, founder Marcus Leupold grew frustrated that his hunting optic was plagued by internal fogging of the lenses. He knew he could build a better weapon sight, and the company began mass producing them in 1945. Leupold is credited as the first optics manufacturer to purge the space between the lenses with dry nitrogen gas to resist fogging. It’s now an industry standard and a must-have feature in any serious binocular or scope.
Today, Leupold binoculars and sport optics are still designed, machined, and assembled in the company’s facility in Beaverton, Oregon, where it employs 700 workers. Leupold & Stevens remains family operated, now passed down to the fifth generation of owners. Recently, Leupold expanded by acquiring another esteemed optics brand, Redfield.
Backed by the Gold Ring Lifetime Guarantee, Leupold scopes and binoculars are built to withstand the test of time. Your Leupold optic is guaranteed to perform for a lifetime, even if it changes owners. There are no warranty cards to keep track of. The only exclusion is electronic components.
