  • Weight: 14.1 ounces.
  • Eye relief: 4 inches.
  • Objective lens: 40mm.
  • Exit pupil: 13.3mm.
  • Mounting length: 5.5 inches.

This riflescope is amazingly reasonably sized, without being neither too small nor too big, which is convenient for the user to carry around. Before you decide to purchase this product, ensure that you have enough space to fulfil the required mounting length.

Just how powerful is this riflescope?

The riflescope boasts high zoom capabilities. Magnification for this product ranges from3X to 9X. The magnification makes it possible for you to bracket your target at 3X magnification and then zoom-in with 9X magnification to achieve a fantastic up close and personal shot. The zooming feature does not alter the resolution in any way, a shot at 3X magnification will be just as clear as a shot taken at 9X magnification.

Getting to know the Optics Quality on the scope

It is worth mentioning the optics on this riflescope are fully multicoated. Multi-coating assures the user of no glare or reflection when using it. The lenses are O-Ring sealed which makes the scope completely waterproof. The barrel, on the other hand, is filled with dry Nitrogen to avert fogging.

​The Multi-X reticle is seen as a major setback of using this riflescope. It is simplex in nature lacking markings that are vital for range compensation. To take care of this little problem, you will need to keenly study the ballistics of this riflescope at various ranges to come up with a pinpoint accuracy.

​The last focus eyepiece works perfectly. It allows you to focus in real time for you to take the shot. The focus is clear even in long distance. Ignore the rumors that say that focus blurs beyond 75 yards. As mentioned above, Bushnell provides a bulletproof 100% money back guarantee on this product. In case your riflescope develops any problem, you can contact customer service, and they will be more than willing to sort you out.

​The scope’s light gathering capability

​With a 91% light transmission, the riflescope offers you with an impressive light gathering capabilities. Even in low light conditions, expect great results. One shortcoming of this riflescope is that the reticles lack illumination. In spite of seeing your target clearly in a bad lighting situation, it’s possible that you may fail to make out the reticles.

​How wide is the field of view?

​At just 3X magnification, the field of view is a remarkable 40 feet at 100 yards. With the 9X magnification, you will get a 13 feet field of view at the same 100 yards. These represent an excellent field of view at all magnifications, enabling you to have the required visual to spot, bracket, and zoom in for the perfect shot.

​All about mounting the scope

​You should encounter very minimal challenges when mounting this riflescope; there are no special tricks required. The scope does not include rings on a purchase, and so you will need to buy a set of 13 rings separately. If you have the set rings, there is no reason to buy again.

I recommend high rings, but everyone has their preferences. If you typically prefer high rings with your firearm. Make sure you get the exact style of rings for your riflescope. Once you have the rings, the scope mounts very easily to most firearms. With just 5.5 inches of mounting required, the riflescope works best for bolt action rifles.

​How easy is the Riflescope to Sight In?

​With elevation adjustment knobs and fingertip windage, sighting in is made incredibly easy without necessarily using additional tools. I recommend using a laser bore sighting tool to save time and ammunition. The rifle scope holds zero remarkably; I noticed this when I did some trials with several rounds using my AR-15 with this periscope installed.

​The durability of the riflescope

​The scope's nature means that Bushnell built it to last longer with features such as being shockproof, fog proof and waterproof. The one piece 30mm tube is rugged and sturdy, as a result of being built from aircraft-grade aluminum. The design ensures that the scope can withstand the recoil of powerful shotguns and rifles. The durability with a limited life warranty assures your years of excellent service.


  • Outstanding magnification and light transmission – for some time now, Bushnell have built an excellent reputation for high-quality products and their customers a testimony. This rifle scope has a second to none magnification for better shots. Their portfolio speaks for itself.
  • Competitive prices – the price is to-die-for. With the harsh economic times, Bushnell decided not to make their customer’s lives harder by selling this scope at a pocket-friendly price. You can, therefore, buy the riflescope without straining your budget.
  • Innovative, superior quality – this includes elevation adjustments and fingertip windage to make everything much easier. Bushnell takes into consideration different criticisms and ideas suggested by their clients and other stakeholders to give them better products.


  • Rings not included on a purchase. You need to buy them separately which can be both time consuming and costly.
  • There is no illumination to reticles.
  • The Multi-X Reticle does not have range compensation markers.
