  • APO System:       Apochromatic objective lens system uses index-matched lenses to correct color across the entire visual spectrum.
  • Optically Indexed Lenses:  Optimize image sharpness and brightness from edge to edge.
  • HD Lens Elements:  Premium HD (High Density) extra-low dispersion glass delivers the ultimate in resolution and color fidelity, resulting in High Definition images.
  • XR Fully Multi-Coated:  Proprietary coatings increase light transmission with multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces.
  • First Focal Plane Reticle Scale of reticle remains in proportion to the zoomed image. Constant subtensions allow accurate holdover and ranging at all magnifications.
  • Glass-etched Reticle: Allows for intricate reticle design. Protected between two layers of glass for optimum durability and reliability.
  • Illuminated Reticle: Provides precise aiming under low-light conditions.


  • Tube Size:    35 mm diameter provides maximized internal adjustment and strength.
  • Single-Piece Tube:  Maximizes alignment for improved accuracy and optimum visual performance, as well as ensures strength and waterproofness.
  • Aircraft-Grade Aluminum:  Constructed from a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum for strength and rigidity.
  • Waterproof:  O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating the riflescope for reliable performance in all environments.
  • Fogproof:  Argon gas purging prevents internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures.
  • Shockproof: Rugged construction withstands recoil and impact.
  • Hard Anodized Stealth Shadow Finish     Highly durable hard-coat anodization provides a low-glare matte surface and helps camouflage the shooter’s position.
  • ArmorTek:  Ultra-hard, scratch-resistant coating protects exterior lenses from scratches, oil and dirt.
  • Exposed Tactical-Style Turrets:    Provide fast, accurate and easily read elevation and windage adjustments.
  • Side Focus: Adjustment located on left side of turret housing is easily accessible from shooting position. Provides optimal image focus and parallax removal.


  • RZR Zero Stop    Rapid Zero Return (RZR) feature stops the turret from dialing below sight in range using rugged steel components. Internal mechanisms stay free of sand, dirt, dust, moisture and other foreign materials—even when setting the zero-stop position. US Patent 8,166,696 B2
  • Friction Reduction System           Heat-treated, hardened-steel pad floats on the end of the turret screw and interfaces with a hardened steel ring on the erector tube for steel-on-steel contact. Prevents galling or deformation of the erector screw contact point for superior durability and repeatability. US Patent 7,958,665
  • Turret Screws    Provides low-friction, wear-resistant performance: precision-machined from a silicon-brass alloy and treated with an advanced dry-film lubricant. Turret screw threads are precision machined to sub-2 micron tolerances (less than 78-millionths of an inch). Ultra-smooth operation and adjustments.
  • Erector Tube System      Precision-machined from premium brass alloy with anti-galling properties for strength and durability. The chromium vanadium erector spring withstands compression, has high fatigue resistance and is tumble-polished to a mirror finish for micro-precise elevation and windage adjustments.


  • MAG-View Fiber Optic  Provides a highly visible reference point for the magnification setting.
  • Radius Bar  Fiber optic turret rotation indicator provides a highly visible and tactile point of reference for turret rotations. US Patent 7,937,879
  • Fast Focus Eyepiece Allows quick and easy reticle focusing.
