Leupold 1.5-4x20 Mark AR Duplex Riflescope?

Anyone have any intel or experience with this scope? Would be used on an AR15 M4 Flatop.

Also recommendations on QD rings/base for this set up?

Thanks for the help!

I have one, for what I paid it's fine. I have it on a Para and haven't had any problems. In a side by side comparison it is not as bright and clear as a Vari-XIII 1.5-5 or a Bushnell 4200 1.5-5 but it's way ahead of a Millet or other cheapo. I would buy another if I had a use for it. HTH

I've had one for about a year on my fal and no probs; Can't beat the quality of a leupold for this kind of money. My only problem is the reticle and 1.5x power being the lowest; why not 1x? I chose it first for the size and the weight going on an fal. I'm going with the burris tac30 next for my ar.

Just got one, mounted it but haven't shot it yet. Looks good so far.
I especially like the longer eye relief which works well with a para rear sight. On some other scopes, even with the ocular back almost touching the rear sight, i end up with my nose touching the stock knuckle. Not a problem with the sliding type rear sight where there is a little more room to bring the scope back, but annoying on a para. Should note I use low QD rings, which avoids the need for a cheekrest.
As above, seems like a good value for the dollar. I'm pleased.
