Leupold: Rifle Scopes

Edited: Sep 07, 2016

Product Information:

Leupold is issuing a customer alert to purchasers of products, particularly via Internet sales, in regards to bogus Leupold products that are apparently being illegally imported from the People's Republic of China. These products bear many of the marks and trade dress of current Leupold & Stevens rifle scopes making them very hard to distinguish externally from authentic Leupold products.

Counterfeit scopes which purport to be Leupold Mark 4 riflescopes, Leupold Prismatic riflescopes and Leupold CQ/T riflescopes have begun to arrive with increasing regularity in our Beaverton, Oregon, headquarters for service. Counterfeit products are not manufactured by Leupold and are not covered by the Leupold Full Lifetime Guarantee. We do not provide service for counterfeit products.

All Leupold riflescopes are given an individual serial number. Counterfeit scopes often use a fake serial number, all identical serial numbers, or incorrect numbering convention. If a customer finds a scope that is suspect, he or she can simply write down the serial number and call 1-800-LEUPOLD to ask if the scope is authentic. In most cases, we can confirm a scope's authenticity by its serial number.

Leupold riflescopes are all designed, machined, and assembled in our Beaverton Oregon manufacturing facility. We do not have any other riflescope manufacturing facilities or offices anywhere in the world. A Leupold riflescope shipping into the United States from China is a very likely a counterfeit.

Recommended Action:
