Leupold Mk 4 Reliability??

Well ive finally narrowed my choice for a scope down 2 a leupy 4.5-14x50 MK4 m1 with a TMR reticle. Anyways i heard from a few sources that leupolds repeatability in tracking an reliabilty with ur scope maintaining its zero has gone down the toilet lately.:( I was wonderin if its true that their quality isnt up to par or if people r just blowin smoke out...
As always all input is greatly appreciated.
THanx

I have a leupold 4.5-14x40 Mk4 PR and it works fine. Now I do have a complaint about it. Shortly after recieving it I had to send it back to leupold for repair and when I got it back it turned out that they had a replace the internals.

Never owned a Mark 4 but have several Lupy higher end scopes. Last year I had two go down in one season. Both newer 30 mm tube LR scopes. I sure am glad I take extra rifles with me when I go out west to hunt. Both were repaired and returned with no explination. Cutomer service was great with turn around time and no charge was incurred by me except out shipping.

I have since started buying Zeiss for about the same money. I am VERY PLEASED with the Zeiss. You may want to look at them.

As you're also hearing over on the Hide (and Blaserpro too?), the Mk4's are good to go. I've had several, older and newer, and have never had a problem. I suppose if you actually drive over them with the Humvee, you might have to rezero, but I've never had to, even after harder falls that I care to admit to.

I'm about to pick up yet another (the new FFP design), and I have no doubt it will meet Leupold's earned reputation.
