Firefield recently released a new scope in 1-6X24.I’ve always liked the 1-4 power scopes and use them on my rifles. I felt they come up a little shy on the range at longer distances.This new 1-6×24 will allow shooters to use it in competition,hunting as well as just shooting at distances that really stretched the 1-4 scopes ability. In other words it gives the shooter a wider variety of uses for the same size as the 1-4 variety.
This new Firefield is a first focal plane scope at a very reasonable price of $215.99. To quote the company “The Firefield® 1-6×24 First-Focal Plane Riflescope is equipped with a green or red illuminated, first-focal plane reticle for range estimation at any magnification to help find the distance between the shooter and the target. The first-focal plane reticle remains in the same visual proportion to the target across the riflescope’s entire magnification range. While the reticle appears to change when adjusting the magnification, the reticle stays in position proportional to the target. This is extremely beneficial for rapid rangefinding and holdovers at various distances.”

Rings come with the scope.The scope is warranted for three years. I checked this scope and others in the product line and found the glass to be very good especially at that price. Watch for a complete review by Thomas in the not too distant future.
The Firefield scope can be found at Optics Planet and other retailers.
