Some weeks ago, with its 1-8x24 PM II ShortDot Dual CC riflescope, Schmidt & Bender won the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr) tender. So, here it is: this new version of the 1-8x24 PM II ShortDot Dual CC has a FlashDot in the 2nd focal plane and an illuminable reticle at the 1st focal plane.
CC stands for Close Combat, and the advantage of the 1-8×24 with CC is that it offers a combination of a reflex sight with a conventional riflescope, since in CC mode the scope has a true 1 time magnification and is parallax-free up to 7 m.
An ideal solution for mobile use in urban terrain from short to medium distances.
As explained by the Manufacturer, “by increasing the magnification above the CC Mode the riflescope is parallax free to 100m. Since the FlashDot is located in the 2nd focal plane the size of the dot is not magnified and stays constant.
Hereby three different illumination increments are eligible. At higher magnifications the Mildot reticle in the 1st focal plane can be used. Thus a opportunity for a direct measurement of target and object sizes is enabled.
With a maximum magnification of 8 the 1-8×24 PM II ShortDot Dual CC is also an ideal riflescope for identification purposes and operations up to medium distances. Hereby the illumination of the reticle can be regulated in 8 different increments, whereof three are optimized for the usage with a night vision.”
