At AUSA ’13 Canadian firm Elcan unveiled their new Specter TR Tri FOV. This scope features three power settings, 1x, 3x and 9x, which are selected using a dial on the side of the scope. Because the scope has three distinct power settings, rather than a range of zoom like traditional scopes, the operator can quickly select the desired power rather than twisting the scope’s power ring through its entire range of motion. Another unique feature of this scope is that is has both a traditional reticle and a red dot (reflex) sight. Not having used this scope myself I cannot say how well such a hybrid-reticle works in practice, but it is an intriguing concept.
The scope measures 10.3″ in length and weights 1.8 lbs.
