|Second Focal Plane
||Reticle remains a constant size
throughout magnification range.
|APO Objective Lens System
||Uses index-matched lenses to
correct color across the entire visual spectrum.
|HD Lens Elements
||Premium (High Density)
extra-low dispersion glass delivers the ultimate in resolution
and color fidelity, resulting in High Definition images.
|XR Lens Coatings
||Vortex proprietary XR fully
multi-coated lens coatings increase light transmission for
|30 mm Tube
||Provides greater strength and
wider adjustment lattitude as compared to a 1-inch tube.
||Maximizes alignment for
improved accuracy and optimum visual performance as well as
strength and waterproofness.
||Less susceptible to accidental
||Construction from a solid block
of 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum delivers increased strength
||O-ring seals prevent moisture,
dust, and debris from getting inside the tube for reliable
performance in all environments.
||Filled with argon gas to
inhibit internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures.
||Lenses are locked in place,
fore and aft, with machined locking rings to remain in perfect
alignment and withstand recoil and impact.
|Hard Anodized Finish
||Type-3 hard-coat anodization is
durable; the low-glare matte surface of Stealth Shadow Black
helps camouflage the shooter’s position.
Internal Mechanism Design Features
|Friction Reduction System
||Provides superior durability,
repeatability and accuracy for the life of the product. Prevents
galling or deformation of the erector screw contact point
because the 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. US Patent
wear-resistant performance: precision-machined from a
silicon-brass alloy and treated with an advanced dry-film
lubricant. Turret screw threads are ultra-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 great strength and
durability. The erector spring of chromium vanadium withstands
compression, has high fatigue resistance, and is tumble-polished
to a mirror finish for micro-precise elevation and windage
|Single Spring Construction
||Fully constrains (without
over-constraining) the optical system for predictable, improved
accuracy throughout the range of elevation adjustment.
|Illuminated Center Dot
designed to accommodate conditions ranging from bright daylight
through dim, low light
||Can be turned on or off with a
single click between each of the 11 intensity levels—allowing
access to a preferred illumination setting without having to
progress through each intensity level. Lockable at preferred
|Fast Focus Eyepiece
||Allows quick and easy reticle
|Large Diameter Turrets
||Provide sure gripping for easy
elevation and windage adjustments.
