Vortex Golden Eagle HD is the first series of target rifle scopes from Vortex, which is specifically designed for precision long-range shooting, F-Class or Benchrest. Currently, only 1 rifle scope is available from this series, the Vortex Golden Eagle HD 15-60x52.
The zoom factor on this rifle scope is 4 times, and thanks to the big maximal magnifications, shots at extreme distances are still visible through the rifle scope. The turrets on this rifle scope are exposed, and have a target-style design, so the shooter can easily change the elevation and windage adjustments without taking off some protection caps. The clicks are in 1/8 MOA, so they are very precise for the smallest corrections.
The reticle is set in the second focal plane, so it has the same dimensions on all magnifications. Currently, 2 reticle options are available, the ECR-1 MOA which has additional lines in the reticle for ranging and reading the corrections (at 40x magnification), and the SCR-1 MOA reticle, which has a simple crosshair design with 2 very thin lines that don't cover a lot of the target. Both reticles are non-illuminated. The parallax is adjustable from 20 yards (18 meters) to infinity.
The Main tube is made from a single piece aluminum to withstand all the recoil, and the mounting diameter is 30 millimeters. In this tube are only high-quality premium High-Density extra-low dispersion lenses, which deliver a great color fidelity, high resolution with no apochromatic aberrations. These lenses are additionally fully multi-coated with the XR™ Plus coating to increase the light transmission for a brighter picture. The outer surfaces of the lenses are coated additionally with the ArmorTek coating for a more scratch-resistant surface. The internals of these rifle scopes is filled with argon gas to prevent fogging in cold environment.
The Vortex Golden Eagle HD features a European-style fast focus eye-piece, an additional windage turret, sunshade and an Aperture Stop Ring.
This Vortex is covered with the Vortex VIP Unconditional Lifetime Warranty.
