Bushnell’s Engage Optics Line


Bushnell recently introduced a new line of optics. Called the Engage line, this new line includes both rifle scopes and binoculars that are designed for hunters and other shooters who spend time outdoors. According to the company, the new line is designed to provide “world-class performance” and to “completely dominate the elements.”

Both the scopes and binoculars offer multi-coated lenses that allow for a bright image while protecting against scratching, water, oil and other debris. The company’s EXO Barrier is a lens coating that is said to molecularly bond to the glass and fill the tiny pores in the glass that are invisible to the naked eye.


The scopes use Bushnell‘s new Deploy MOA reticle. It offers 1 MOA hashmarks. All of the scopes come with flip caps from Butler Creek.

There are nine different configurations of scopes that are available in this line. They range from a 2-7x36mm to a 6-24x50mm. Several models use a 1″ diameter tube with standard turrets while others use a 30mm tube with the company’s Toolless Zero Reset Locking Turrets.

There are four different models of binoculars in this line. They run from 8x42mm to 12x50mm. The binoculars use a rugged chassis for harsh use. Both the scopes and the binoculars have Bushnell‘s “Ironclad Warranty.”

Prices run from $149.99 to $449.99.

    Cool scope, good price, but wish it was ffp instead of sfp. Also haven’t checked the weight against competitors, but the Bushnell AR I already have is really heavy and has broken from a minor drop already, life time warranty took care of it but it did break.


    Meh, I’m over cheap scopes. Five hundred dollars gets you poor mechanical tracking, lousy glass and significant POI shifts when you change magnification. Hell, I have a $1000 Viper that shifts over 4 inches POI at 100 yards when adjusting from 6.5x to 24x.

    As opposed to those who do their hunting and shooting indoors? 😉
