Leica Magnus i rifle scopes are the second generation of the Leica Magnus rifle scopes. They were introduced on IWA in 2016. Leica is a well-renowned producer of optics and has long been regarded as one of the best producers of binoculars in the world. Magnus line was Leica's entrance in the premium class of rifle scopes and they invested a lot of effort in producing one of the best hunting telescopic sights on the market. Leica Magnus scopes have the widest field of view, true “Leica” vivid colors and an outstanding contrast. Leica Magnus scopes also offer an extraordinary light transmission rate of more than 91% and this is a remarkable achievement for a super-zoom rifle scope. Zoom factor of the wide angle model is 6.3 and 6.7 for bigger models. These rifle scopes really offer versatile possibilities of use and are a great choice for anything from driven hunts or safari to low light hunting or long-range shots due to their large field of view. All outer lens surfaces are covered with Leica AquaDura coating that prevents fogging at low temperatures, repels water and protects lenses from scratches. Mechanics and general build quality of Leica Magnus scopes are also on such a high level that you can rely on Magnus scopes in any kind of challenging conditions.
All Leica Magnus i rifle scopes come with new turrets, where the zeroing of the scope is done by pressing the turret and turning it, without any key needed. They come with an even better-illuminated reticle and a very advanced illumination system, located on the top of the eyepiece. The operation of the system is very intuitive and can be done even while wearing gloves. The knob for regulating the illumination on the Magnus i series of riflescopes locks into place more firmly, so that the accidental turning on or off cannot take place.
There are 60 levels of illumination intensity altogether, meaning that the illumination can be fine-tuned for any lighting conditions, either as a day bright dot for driven hunts or as a very dim point of aim for low light hunting. The illumination system also features a position sensor which automatically turns off the illumination when the scope is tilted sideways or is in a vertical position. The illumination system features new, updated electronics which reduce energy consumption. This system substantially increases battery life. All Leica Magnus i rifle scopes can optionally be ordered with the Zeiss ZM/VM rail for simple mounting, or BDC lockable turrets with 100 clicks in a single turn (the wide-angle model cannot be ordered with the BDC-turret).
