MODEL 18407650

Ad­just­ing the in­ter­nal fo­cus is smooth and easy keep­ing the right eye closed. Ad­just for eye strength next with only the right eye open by twist­ing the eye­piece. The binoc­u­lars are light, partly due to the ab­sence of a com­pass. The neck strap snaps on and off eas­ily, and the ob­jec­tive lens cov­ers flip down and out of the way. The eye­piece cov­ers hang from the neck strap.

IN THE BOX: The bal­lis­tic ny­lon carry case in­cludes a padded neck strap and lens caps and a lens clean­ing cloth. CON­CLU­SIONS: These let us read the chart at line 8, sec­ond from the bot­tom, in both dim and mod­er­ate light. They ex­celled in sun­light but, as ex­pected, weren’t as bright as the pricier mod­els. In our 100yard test they could read line 6, fourth from the bot­tom, con­sis­tently. We pre­fer their in­ter­nal fo­cus to sep­a­rately fo­cused oc­u­lars be­cause changes from one range to an­other were quick, as tested by switch­ing from 25- to 12-yard tar­gets.
