This precision optic was built from the ground up, offering a crystal clear 4.5-18x magnification range, built on a proven and easy to mount, 30mm" one piece, 6063 aluminum tube construction with nearly 6" of mounting length. The optical system is set on the Front Focal plane, keeping the MLX reticle measurement aspects precisely consistent through the entire range of magnification. The NEW MLX reticle is a highly useful Mil based reticle with over 10MILs of measurement in ,hold over, and 5 Mils of hold under available on the highest magnification in the field of view. The windage and elevation turrets are metered in a precise 1/10Mil tactile and audible click adjustment increments featuring a very useful Lift, Adjust Press down to lock, Lift Higher to re-zero, mechanisms designed for secure and precise adjustments available to meet the needs of the shot. The glass selection and lens coatings have been specifically designed to offer an exceptional high resolution image through the carefully balanced optical engineering with a 44mm objective lens providing the light gathering performance second to few.
