Overland Park, Kan. – Bushnell, an industry-leader in high performance sports optics for more than 60 years, has introduced two new 1-4x 24mm riflescopes in the AR Optics line. Featuring true one-power magnification, high-quality optics and target turrets, the AR Optics product line is a high-quality, cost-effective optics solution.
Featuring fully multi-coated optics, the AR Optics line provides exceptional light transmission and image clarity. With an overall length just over nine inches, the scope is a perfect fit on AR-style rifles. Built from a durable, one-piece 30mm tube, the riflescope has plenty of travel for extended-range elevation adjustments. In addition, target turrets and a fast focus eyepiece allow shooters to make quick adjustments in the field.
The first riflescope in the line features the new Drop Zone 223 Reticle, a bullet-drop compensation (BDC) reticle with a 100-yard zero and aiming points out to 500 yards. The reticle is calibrated for .223/5.56mm ammunition with a bullet weight range of 55-62 grain. The target turrets on this model have a ½ MOA click value.
The second model is a first focal plane riflescope that features the BTR-1 illuminated reticle and a throw down power change lever for quick magnification adjustments. The BTR-1, calibrated for .223/5.56mm ammunition, is an illuminated BDC reticle that functions as a red dot at low power while offering aiming points to 600 yards at full power. The target turrets on this model have .1 Mil click values.
The AR Optics 1-4x 24mm Riflescopes are available for estimated retail prices of $199.99 and $299.99, respectively.
