The main new Konus entry in shooting scopes for this year is the “Sight-Pro Atomic” red-dot sight, a sturdy and versatile, extremely high-quality alternative to the Aimpoint Micro-T1. The Konus “Sight-Pro Atomic” red dot micro-sights are light enough to remain functional even when used on handguns or bows, not to mention rifles and shotguns, and will sustain any kind of heavy-duty use, be it sports shooting competition or tactical deployment. The Konus “Sight-Pro Atomic” red-dot sight features two tactical-type adjustment turrets and two integrated mounds, for Weaver and 11mm rails. An upgraded, non-magnified version of the design also exists, named the Konus #7215 QR, featuring a red or green 40 M.O.A. dot adjustable to five different brightness levels, 20mm lenses with unlimited eye relief, an overall length of 2.7 inches per 4.6 oz. of overall weight, and a MIL-STD-1913 “Picatinny” mount with quick-release system.
Yet another new entry concerns the “Konuspro” line of riflescopes, renowned for their low price tag despite their use of military optics technology, such as having the reticle directly carved on optical glass. The “Konuspro” riflescopes line will now feature two new models equipped with a ballistic reticle, thus providing for easier aiming and more accurate shots within 275 metres, this being the most commonly encountered distance in hunting − thus providing a higher first-shot clean kill probability.
The new “Konuspro-275” #7278 3-9x40mm and #7279 3-10x44 riflescopes feature multicoated lenses and quick-use adjustment turrets. The 275-type ballistic reticle, equipped with horizontal and top marks, helps the shooter to calculate the ballistc drop on pre-set distances (75, 125, 175, 225 e 275 metres); the red or blue central dot can be adjusted for both MOA ans brightness; each click on the turret equals to ¼ M.O.A. (7.25 mm.) at 100 meters.
The “Konuspro-275” #7278 3-9x40 riflescope is 13 inches long and 17 ounces heavy, and sports a 11.5 meters FOV at 100 meters when set to 3x and a 3.8 meters FOV at 100 meters when set to 9x, plus a 76mm eye relief and an eye pupil ranging from 13.3mm at 3x to 4.4mm at 9x. Required installation standards are a 14.2-inch mounting distance and a 1.3mt @ 100mt gamma setting.
The “Konuspro-275” #7279 3-10x44 riflescope is merely eight grams heavier than the #7278, and just as long, yet its 76.2mm eye relief and its 14.7mm exit pupil at 3x and 4.4mm exit pupil at 10x will result in a field of view ranging from 10.7 meters on 3x settings and 3.3 meters on 10x settings at 100 meters; the required mounting distance is also shorter, standing at 5.5 inches, yet the required gamma setting raises to 1.6 m at 100 meters.
