TFB were the first to report about Finnaccuracy’s MSR2 reticle, which will be a great help for the premium optic manufacturers and their existing and upcoming super-zoom rifle scopes.

If you missed it, you can read about the Multipurpose Sniper Reticle II – MSR II here.

Since then premium suppliers like Steiner, Kahles and Schmidt & Bender have all released optics with the MSR2, and there are more to come.

New reticles usually take years to develop and incorporate, so in parallel to the MSR2 reticle development, Finnaccuracy has been busy with another mind-blowing invention. You can read the Press Release below, together with a description of the Patent behind everything.

Below: MSR2 reticle, at least parts of it. Developed for the latest super-zooms.

FinnAccuracy MSR Digital Reticle System – A New Era Of Riflescope

We are extremely happy and proud to announce the new Finnaccuracy MSR-DRS Digital reticle.

For the very first time in optical aiming device history, rifle scope users can now design their own reticles, with no compromises. With the MSR-RDS you can use this reticle on virtually any rifle scope – your own imagination is the only limit.

After almost five years of intensive development between Finnaccuracy and several premium partners in the optics, electronics and aerospace industry, we are proud to present this true game-changer.

The latest brake-through was a license agreement which allows the use of a miniaturized HUD-technology from SAAB Aerospace AB. This was a key component to make this brilliant clip-on device technically possible.

An interchangeable clamp interface makes sure you can fit the MSR-RDS to virtually any existing rifle-scope on the Planet.

There are still some testing being done, but the commercial release will be in the 1st half of 2019 and the estimated MSRP is $5250.

Below: Some of the custom reticles available. If you don’t like these, you can chose from hundreds of others, or design your own custom reticles and still use your existing scope.

MSR-DRS Key features:
  • 8 -color, fully user programmable reticle pattern – 4 x 1920×1080 (8MP) OLED: seamless HUD merging to daytime scope view
  • UHD display for magnifications +30x via beam splitter – equaling under 5-micrometer resolution on apparent reticle details
  • FHD-CMOS sensor feedback for real-time image processing – reticle pattern adaptation based on sophisticated object shape and color recognition algorithms
  • Exynos 9810 CPU: 338 teraflop processing performance with low power consumption
  • Seamless functionality developed in close co-operation with current digital rifle scope manufacturers: Schmidt&Bender / High-Power digital and Steiner / M7Xi IFS

    $5250? Don't you think there's enough entry level gear out there?

    Am I the only one kind of disappointed that this isn't a real thing? This could actually be really useful. Got a favorite handload, or that rifle in a caliber that no one makes reticles for? Cook up your own BDC and ranging reticle, upload to your scope, and you're good to go. Or post it online for the 6 other people who still actually shoot 7.7x58mm Arisaka.
