--what are the Hive's thoughts about this one? I've been playing with one mounted on a display rifle at work, and have come to really like it, but I don't see them discussed here much. Why?? I feel that it combines many of the best features of the Aimpoint and the ACOG--

I might be wrong on this, but the CQ/T was on the leading edge of close quarter/intermediate range optic a few years ago. I took mine out to a match after using the TR21 over a year, and the CQ/T was just barely good enough at 400 yds The 3 MOA dot was not precise enough for flash targets between 350-400 yds. It is still a very good scope IMO.

Mike, I wish Leupold would of kept the heavy circle of the CQ/T when they designed the MRT. The new reticle is hard to pick up in quick transitioning between targets in close range.

The Meopta Meostar can do everything the CQT can with better illumination, 4X instead of 3X, for less or same money, same weight, same size, same warranty, and better glass.

I agree with many of the comments above. I carried a CQ/T on an M4-type upper in OIF. I believe the optic is (1) generally too large and heavy for what it is; (2) The reticle does nothing for precision engagements past say, 200M; (3) I also get the feeling I'm looking through a drinking straw; (4) No positive stop for the dialable light switch; (5) Wrong color -- should be a neutral color, like coyote.

I spoke with Leupold's Military/LE guy a while back about this -- especially the reticle issue, and was referred to their custom shop. I was told they can do nothing for me given the "unique nature" of the CQ/T design. Still, it served me well and it's tough as nails. Going to Kosovo for a while next month and it's coming along for another go-around.

I suspect Leupold may do something about the CQ/T in 2006 based on some rather loose comments made by some of their employees last month. Exactly what will be done is anyone's guess. I just wish they'd follow the advice posted in this thread.

Wow, and I eat shit on here every time I mention these points.

But I see I am still correct.

Mike can you give your personal impression with this optic, likes, dislike

I have one (got it from Mike in fact) and I love it.

I may or may not send it to Leupold to have the reticle "upgraded" when they start taking the orders.

Either way I think it's a great scope. I don't mind that it sits a little higher.
One of the better investments I've made for my rifle so far.

I love my MR/T as well. Just got it a week and a half ago and it's awesome.

I had a chance to look through one at a recent three gun match. I liked it, however it mounts fairly high and I didn't like that. It doesn't work well with my check weld.

I met a Luepold rep at the same match and he said they're coming out with a new reticle for it in the next few months.

+1 on these points; otherwise good optic; would suggest mounting it on a 308 carbine type rifle.
You want mine? I paid $780; it has the arms mount Like new
