Bushnell introduced a new spotting scope in the company’s tactical line up.  The new LMSS (lightweight, modular spotting scope) is an 8-40x 60 that is less than 13″ long and weights 37 ounces.

The aluminum body is rubber coated to help protect it in the field.  The scope is waterproof to IPX7 standards.

    I’m actually in the market for a cheap mil-dot spotting scope (needs to be waterproof). The cheaper the better, any suggestions? Preferablly at least 10x-40x or above, but starts out at 10x.

    Yay, it’s tan. That’s tactical as fuck.

      …and a rail!! (obligatory…) Yo dawg… I heard you like scopes… so we put a rail on this scope, so your scope can have a scope..

        As silly as it sounds, it is quite common for astronomers, telephoto photographers, birdwatchers, spotters, etc. to mount a small, wide-angle optic such as a red dot onto a large and powerful optic to assist with pointing it at a desired target.

    Despite its “tactical” name, I see this being a nice selection for open range hunters. You have a good magnification range for distance. The tan color avoids that suspicious black object, in contrast to the earth tones, attracting game animal’s attention – whether while being carried on in operation.

    Have a look at this small and light weight attachment from a new player called Digital Crosshairs. It attaches to your scope without any tools and adds IR night vision with an LCD display. http://www.digitalcrosshairs.net
