Rangefind­ing ret­i­cle

Air Gunner - - Contents -

Scope ret­i­cles seem to be get­ting more and more so­phis­ti­cated these days and PAO (Pro­fes­sional Air­gun Op­tics) has added the GBTR one to their range. This stands for Grad­u­ated Brack­eted Tar­get Ret­i­cle and shows a cal­i­brated scale, ver­ti­cally par­al­lel to the mod­i­fied mil-dot cross hair which uses hash marks, as op­posed to dots and can be il­lu­mi­nated red or green to suit the con­di­tions of the day. The com­bi­na­tion al­lows you to mea­sure tar­gets of a known size to cal­cu­late the range and the ret­i­cle helps you to ad­just your aim with great pre­ci­sion.In­ter­est­ingly, the scope has an un­usual spec­i­fi­ca­tion, be­ing fixed 10 x 56, per­haps in­tended for com­pe­ti­tions like hunter field tar­get where vari­able mag­ni­fi­ca­tion isn’t needed. As ever with this brand, mounts are in­cluded in the price. RRP £149.99

PAO set about of­fer­ing a true HFT scope with this in­ter­est­ing new model
