1x Scopes

    Shooting Illustrated has posted an article written by Steve Adelmann about the latest in 1x, 1.1x and 1.5x zoom scopes.

    While passing through Leupold’s booth at the SHOT Show in January, I noticed crowds gathering around several CQBSS scopes on display. The company’s new optic is user-friendly, and its tactically appealing features were generating much buzz. For example, the zoom function is handled by the entire ocular bell. There’s no need to apply gorilla strength to a small ring.

    The article is well worth reading.

    Earlier this gun blogger Say Uncle wrote about wrote about the 1x scope he purchased …

    The concept of a 1-4x always intrigued me but I never really bought one or shot one. I reasoned that pros would be that it is suitable at 1x for close work with both eyes open and for a wide field of view. The center portion of the German #4 reticle seems to function adequately has a red dot for fast target acquisition.

    I love low powered scopes 🙂
