The price suggest that it’s an entry level scope, but its features tell it’s a superb piece of equipment. The single piece tube and multi coated lenses will withstand any abuse that comes its way and can be used with firearms of any caliber. The AO system, adjustable parallax and a fast focus eyepiece provide adaptability and easy target tracking at any range. The lens is rather large to let in enough light for dusk shooting, but the V-Brite reticle comes with an illuminated central dot as well.
With the clear image, adaptability and a forgiving eye-box, it’s a scope for all hunter and for the beginners in shooting that have an appetite for longer ranges as well.
The tube is manufactured out of a single piece of aircraft grade aluminum for both durability and increased accuracy. The hard anodizing protects the material from corrosion and the elements, as well as against scratches. All the joints are sealed with O-rings to prevent moisture, water and debris to enter the scope, while nitrogen gas purging of the inside will prevent any internal fogging.
The construction of the single piece tube is rugged and will withstand both impacts as well as recoil of any caliber. The lenses are multi-coated in all lens-to-air surfaces to ensure a sharp and clear image as well as protect the lens from stains and scratches.
