I'm still in the research stage of my SPR project and had a question about the scope used.
I've read that Mark 12 Mod. 0&1 SPRs are issued with the Leupold Mk4 M3 scope, and most pics that I've seen seem to bear this out.
However, there's a huge pic of a SF trooper with an SPR (Mk. 12 Mod. 1) on the cover of this month's SOF magazine, and the scope on his SPR looks smaller than the M3 and is described in a caption as a "Leupold TS-30 sniper scope" (I'm not aware of this model?).
Is this a new issue scope, a typo, or a personal procurement thing?
Thanks for any help here on this issue.
