The old fixed 6 power I sent in resulted in a phone call from Leupold. The customer service guy said they were not sure, at that time, that they could fix the scope, and he said they didn’t use lead anymore. And would it be Ok if they had to send me a new one. Well...sure it would be Ok. I meant to ask him what he meant about lead. Anybody know what that’s all about?

Lead in the glass? Lead to hold lenses in place?

Nice!!! Not sure about the lead, myself. I finally got a tracking number for one of mine. I was beginning to think that they lost it. The end of the year must have backlogged them big time!!!

this is one quote I found:

Leupold is bringing forth new offerings (finally), using good no-lead glass with edge blackening and better coatings.

That is a February 2015 quote. Three years old.
