Bushnell is a US company that has been producing state-of-the-art rifle scopes in terms of both quality and value since its founding, in 1948. The top-of-the-line Forge range is specifically tailored to the needs of hunters and represents the next step in hunting optics. Three configurations are available – for driven, stalking and high seat/ generic/hunts. Built with premium technology, Forge riflescopes offer the enthusiast top-quality ED Prime glass, generous magnification range, a new extra fine reticle, locking Target turrets, all in a water- and shock-proof housing.
Bushnell Forge riflescopes in three models: 1-8x30, 2-16x50 and 3-24x56
The new 4H Ultra illuminated reticle is extremely thin and covers only the smallest part of the target for perfect shot placement. The 8x magnification makes this series of scopes very versatile. A Throw Hammer power change lever on the magnification ring allows for quick and easy power up-and-down. The lever can be easily removed in case you don't want it.
The main tube with a diameter of 34 mm provides a very wide amount of reticle elevation and windage travel. Parallax adjustment is of the "Side focus" type.
The locking, target turrets allow for easy but reliable dialing. In models 2-16 and 3-24 reticle correction is 1 cm per click.
The multi-layer anti-reflection coating guarantees maximum light transmission in all lighting conditions, while an additional "Exo Barrier" treatment prevents moisture, dust and dirt from adhering to the exterior lens surfaces. A tube nitrogen filling makes the lenses fog-proof.
