Good to see you again. I didn't keep my promise to update this blog regularly for 2010, but we will start the new year right by showing you a new prototype scope from IOR. The "holy grail" of wide zoom scopes starting with 1x power continues to be searched for by quite a few top end companies. For various reasons, up until this point, no one has brought anything to the market quite yet in other than a 1-6x (exception: March 1-10x) Numerous 1.1-8x or 1-8x scopes are in the pipeline, and not one to be left behind, the guys at Valdada, importer and gatekeeper of the IOR scopes, is debuting a 1-10x of their own.
FFP 1-10 x 26 on 35mm Tube.
Dual reticule with super bright lumen dot
.1 milrad click value
dual illumination for either the dot, reticule, or both
true 1x power
true 10 power
cat tail on the magnification ring
zero stop with resetting turets
11.50 inches long
The design is pretty much finalized, except for the possibility of eliminating the side focus.
Now, here are the pics! What do you think??
Price TBD, delivery expected around June, can't wait to see the scope and reticle at SHOT Show next week!!
