Blaser In­fin­ity

2.8–20x50 $3,500 Rheo­stat il­lu­mi­na­tion con­trol

This el­e­gant op­tic shines with aris­to­cratic flair. This is the first ri­fle­scope from Ger­man gun­maker Blaser, and our test sam­ple came rail-mounted on a Blaser R8 ri­fle trimmed in leather. The pair­ing would be per­fect for a Bavar­ian boar drive or a high-seat roe­buck hunt. Cu­ri­ously, the windage tur­ret is on the left, where you might ex­pect to find the focus on most scopes, and the il­lu­mi­na­tion con­trol is on the right. Not just a show­piece, the 30mm Blaser has plenty of game. The front-plane plex ret­i­cle is fast, the glass is stun­ningly clear and bright, and the price is strato­spheric.
