The long anticipated return of Leica to the rifle scope market has finally occurred. This premium sport optics leader introduced two models at the 2009 Shot Show. and they are exceptional to say the least. Leica focused on the 42mm size for its initial introduction which has been a long time favorite of sportsmen. If these two premium level rifle scopes are any indication of the future Leica is sure to care out a respectable share of the rifle scope market. These models should be available sometime mid year 2009.
