Leupold®Launches Custom Shop Web Site
BEAVERTON, Ore. — Hunters and shooters can construct a preview of customized Leupold® rifle, pistol and shotgun scopes before purchasing on the company’s new Custom Shop Web site, www.leupold.com/customshop.
Visitors to the site can select from 11 series of scopes. Following scope selection, customers begin the personalization process by choosing model, finish and reticle. From there, users can add custom colors and finishes to select models.
Laser engraving is another option available with the Custom Shop. In addition to their name or initials, users can also choose from 21 animals to have engraved into a scope.
After each customization step, the displayed image of the scope is automatically updated.
“The new Custom Shop Web site allows hunters and shooters to combine the optical excellence, ruggedness and durability of Leupold scopes with a personalized look and custom performance features,” said Pat Mundy, Leupold’s marketing communications supervisor. “By the end of the process, customers have a scope tailor-made for their unique brand of hunting or shooting.”
Other customization options include:
* Ring and Medallion
* Bullet Drop Compensation
* Parallax Adjustment
* Adjustment Dials
The site also features an itemized cost section where customers can see the price of each selected option as well as a total price. Once finished, customers can order their personalized scope directly from the site.
