Ilya, one of my buddies is interested in a Leica Tempus. Any thoughts?

None yet.

I'll see if I can get my hands on one.

Looks interesting. Wonder if they are taking a swipe at the Docter market...

Interestingly enough from what I see, Zeiss competes in the same space as Docter but you see far more Docters in Europe

I got some info from a Leica contact.

Tempus uses basic Docter screw pattern, but is a touch longer (by a third of an inch or so).

He flat out said that optical performance is unmatched in the industry at the moment and Leica guys usually do not say this kind of stuff too lightly, so I will get my hands on it and test it on both rifle and handgun.

The specs look interesting.  Unlike most other red dot makers out there, Leica is not bullsh*tting about it being parallax free.  They are actually listing parallax error numbers at 40 meters.  That is veyr refreshing.

I have a spare 10mm slide sitting around, so once I get Tempus in, I will send it to Mr Rifledude to cut it for me.  He got my other 10mm slide set-up with a Doctersight, and the work he does is exceptional:


I'll have the second slide cut for the Tempus and compare them side-by-side.

About Leica Tempus?

I am sorta intrigued, so I will test one on a carbine and then have Ted cut another 10mm slide for it.
