MINOX will be shipping the new ZE 5i scopes in 2013 according to a company press release. The scopes use Z-Rail mounting and will come in four basic models: 1-5x 24, 2-10x 50, 3-15x 56, and 5-25x 56.
There will be three illuminated reticles available: German 4, BDC and Center Dot. All three have a red center dot. The center red dot has 11 brightness settings to allow the shooter to dial in what works best for him and her in their specific lighting conditions. The dot has an auto-power off so your batteries will not run down if stored with the reticle illuminated. A spare battery is stored in the adjustment drum.
The scopes are waterproof. The objective lens components are multi-coated.
The scopes are made in Germany and should start shipping in August 2013. They come with a 30 year warranty. MSRP is expected to be less than $2,000.
