The original Leatherwood ranging telescopic sight was the wonder of the 1960s -- 40 years ago. These are now made by DPMS and there are some teething problems with the new production models. The technology which made the Leatherwood sight so great in the 1960s is no longer proprietary. -- Chuck

DPMS no longer have the rights to Leatherwood scope, those were made with a poor control on quality. the new owner will start making scope and it will be in the highest of quality with a focus on value too. Be on the look out ofr Leatherwood to make a big splash in the State in the next year.

The recent DPMS "Leatherwood" ART-II scopes have had numerous problems as I understand it, mostly QA and construction issues. The "real" Leatherwood scope, the Leatherwood Sporter is a decent scope. The cheapest I've found it is $250 at Cabelas. Cheaper-than-dirt has it listed at around $200 but has been out of stock for a while. The leatherwood website is http://www.leatherwoodoptics.com/ I almost purchased one, but opted for a mil-dot Bushnell Elite instead, which is $50-$100 less.

The new Uni-dial is a very impressive scope, the clarity rivals the more expensive Leupold scope. and the build quality is top rate for the price. I think it is a much better scope then the Tasco SS.
