Formerly of Riflecraft, Bentley Parsons now works for their supplier, Vortex Optics. At SHOT, he showed us the Strike Eagle 1-6×24 sight.
The American optics firm has billed it as an AR scope – but that 1-6x magnification might interest quite a few driven shooters over here and on the continent. It’s got a suitably wide field of view – 116.5 feet at 100 yards on the lowest mag – and a 30mm tube, while it weighs just half a kilogram.
Pricing and availability on this side of the Atlantic is yet to be confirmed – but in the USA it’s starting from $429.
