THE BUSHNELL AR OPTICS 1-4X24MM RIFLESCOPE
I am just past the half-century mark, and the art of armed combat has evolved markedly during my lifetime. Modern, tricked-out combat rifles are unrecognizable alongside their 1960s-era forebears.
One of the starkest examples of this process has been in the area of tactical glass.
Riflescopes back in the day pretty much fell into two broad categories: You could have a crude and clumsy fixed magnification optic or you could perch something variable atop your smoke pole—most typically, 3-9 power. This was great for shooting deer. It didn’t work so well in a fluid, close-combat environment.
Nowadays, Bushnell has developed the ideal optical format for today’s modern sporting rifle (MSR).
The MSR is a close- to medium-range gun. If your target is lurking out there a kilometer away, you need a different tool. The Bushnell AR Optics 1-4x24mm scope is, itself, optimized for the MSR envelope.
Turn the tube down to 1X, and you have a zero-magnification, both-eyes-open sight for use at bad-breath ranges. Spin it up to 4X, and you can drop your rounds on target reliably out to several hundred meters. Naturally, the optics are multicoated, the unit is waterproof, and it can stand up to a holy beating. This deep into the Information Age, we would tolerate nothing else.
The Bushnell Drop Zone-223 Bullet Drop Compensator lets you make elevation adjustments on the fly with a little practice. The scope’s second focal plane design means that the reticle remains the same size, independent of the sight’s power setting. All this is packed into a robust package that looks cool.
There are dozens, if not hundreds, of optical options for your favorite black rifle. In the Bushnell AR Optics 1-4x24, you get reliable quality, along with features that are custom designed to fit this platform. Versatile, robust and functional, this glass will keep you on target.
