View Full Version : Info on Leupold Mark 4 1-3x14mm CQ/T?

01-10-2007, 10:00 AM

My brother stumbled onto this scope and is thinking about getting it for his first AR he's currently building. It'll be a flat top M4 style, he wants a red dot with at least some level of magnification. Any input on this particular scope, or is there something else he should consider?


I believe he was also considering some flavor of Aimpoint that had a 3x magnification tube that could flip off to the side when not in use. Its more cumbersome and expensive than the leupold. Any thoughts?

I haven't personally used it, but you can usually find good deals on used ones at AR15.com's Equipment Exchange. Caveat Emptor.

I looked at it, but went with the Meopta Meostar 1-4x22 K-Dot instead. It's somewhat cheaper, has higher magnification and the reticle, with one horizontal and two vertical lines, was more appealing to me.

Gose, how much was your KDot and where did you get it? I cant decide between the CQ/T, KDot or the Horus Talon. Blah!

$719, bought it from Midway.
I can bring it to Chabot Sat/Sun this weekend, if you want to see it in person (and happen to be in the bay area).

The CQT is heavy and big requires a battery (if I remember correctly), The Meopta Gose mentioned would be my choice before the CQT.

The Accupoint from Trijicon. Not a true dot at 1.25 magnification 4 power on top. No batteries, target style knobs under caps, blah blah.

The Accupoint has won just about every major 3 gun match for the last 4 or 5 years.

Good luck

The Meopta requires a battery for the illumination. It can still be used as a normal scope with the un-illuminated reticle though.

The couple guys in my unit that went down range with CQTs swapped them out for EOTech or ACOGs after a few months. They're "okay" apparently, though nothing to get excited about. Incidentally, I *THINK* this is the site that let down a certain SMU and led to the Short Dot.

I would personally pick Acogs over CQT's. Used acogs can also be had for almost the same price as the leupold cqt's. I sold my Acog with donut reticle last year to someone for $600.00.
