Cool,thanks, That's pretty much how i've been saying it all along, 'cept maybe a little more of a Z sound at the end rather than a hard S.

Heck, I thought it was "Caals" all this time. Glad I looked it up!

+1 on "call-us"

And it's:

LeUpold (lew-pold), not LeOpold (lee-O-pold)

Sah-ko, not Say-ko

oops, lemme get off my soapbox.... :banghead:

I have to concentrate with both eyes shut to call my 75 a "Sah-ko" rather than "Say-ko", but I keep trying!!!

Umm, slight correction on Leupold. As a German name, it should be pronounced 'loy-polt', but most Americans bend it into 'lew-polled.'

I stand corrected, and very refreshed with the intellect lurking on THR. :D

The trickiest one I've found is Geissele, the AR trigger company. They pronoune it GUYZ-lee.
