Leica Magnus scopes also offer extraordinary light transmission rate of more than 91% and this is a remarkable achievement for a super-zoom rifle scope. Zoom ratio of the wide angle model is 6.3 and 6.7 for both 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. 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 is also on such a high level that you can rely on Magnus scopes in any kind of challenging conditions.
All Leica Magnus rifle scopes come with illuminated reticle and very advanced illumination system, located on the top of the eye-piece. Operation of the system is very intuitive and can be done even while wearing gloves. Illumination itself has 60 levels of intensity and can fine-tuned for any light conditions, either as day bright dot for driven hunts or as very dim point of aim for low light hunting. Illumination system also features position sensor which automatically turns off the illumination when the scope is tilted sideways or in vertical position. This system substantially increases battery life.
