IWA 2019 Novelties


Like every year, the Optics Trade team visited IWA Outdoor Classics at the beginning of March to receive some insights and be on track with all the latest novelties in this field. We have gathered them all in this article.


In the field of riflescopes, many of the optics manufacturers have expanded the existing series by adding a model or two. A few companies, however, introduced a whole new series. The first one is Meopta which launched Optika 6. Noblex presented brand-new, NZ6 Inception and Vector riflescopes, both made in Japan. Delta Optical added the 4–24×50 model to the Titanium HD series and Stryker HD was upgraded with new turrets that feature both Zero Stop and a Locking function.

Red Dot Sights

Aimpoint introduced a brand-new, enclosed pistol red dot sight at Shot Show, called ACRO P-1. It was designed for the professional market, and because Aimpoint likes to keep the products for the professional and civilian market offered separately, they introduced a civilian version at IWA 2019 called ACRO C-1.
