Carl Zeiss Sports Optics introduces the new “Duralyt” riflescope line available in 1.2-5x36, 2-8x42 and 3-12x50 models. Known for their reliability and precision, all three premium German-made models are available with illuminated reticle # 60 or non-illuminated reticle # 6, giving today’s active hunter excellent options for most hunting situations. The distinctive design, durability and outstanding value of these 30mm scopes set them apart in the premium segment.
The illuminated reticle #60 features an extremely fine red dot in the center of the crosshairs. When turned off, the dot disappears and it looks identical to reticle #6 (both are non-magnifying reticles in the second image plane). The daylight-visible illuminated reticle #60 was developed using fiber optic nanotechnology that produces the finest illuminated dot in its class – covering just 0.3 inches at 100 yards on 12x magnification. Illumination is activated, and brightness intensity controlled, by pressing one of the two touch keys on the eyepiece. After four hours of unaltered operation, the illuminated dot switches off automatically. For manual deactivation, both buttons must be pressed simultaneously.
The progressive design of the “Duralyt” scopes also features a unique dark grey, anodized surface with deep black rubber operating elements to ensure that the scopes blend well into natural surroundings. The “Duralyt” scopes are also nitrogen filled to remain water and fog proof for years of hard use and enjoyment.
The three ”Duralyt” models provide hunters and shooters with options for just about any situation afield. The “Duralyt” 1.2-5x36’s low magnification and wide field of view allows for quick and safe target acquisition at close range making it an excellent choice for dangerous game and tactical applications.
The sleek and compact ”Duralyt” 2-8x42 provides bright images in twilight and allows for accurate shooting at moderate distances exceeding 200 yards. This is the model of choice for those seeking a practical magnification range for various types of hunting.
The “Duralyt” 3-12x50 is the ideal choice for shooting medium to longer distances during the day or in twilight conditions. The 50mm objective allows for excellent low light performance and yet this scope is still lightweight enough for mountain hunters.
