Only in combination with top-class target optics can hunters use the potential of their rifle to the fullest. Therefore it is even more important that function and handling of the optics are perfectly tuned to the use in the field . If the design of the riflescope is then optimally aligned with the firearm, the result is a combination of unparalleled elegance and performance.
Reticle in the first focal plane
For highest possible shooting accuracy under all conditions, technical solutions are needed where precision-reducing factors are already excluded due to the construction. This applies not only to firearm and scope mount, but also to the target optics themselves. A good example of such a coherent design are the notches to fit the Blaser Saddle Mount: They are positioned directly on the barrel, thus resulting in the ideal integration of optics to barrel. The philosophy behind the design of the Blaser riflescopes is “zero tolerance”. Only with riflescopes featuring a reticle in the first focal plane, the point of impact cannot be changed when switching magnification due to their special design. The reticle overlays the target image before the moving parts of the zoom system come into play.
The reticle revolution
Reticle in the first focal plane, thin reticle structures with minimal target subtension even on highest magnification, daylight-visible illuminated dot, adjustable to extreme light conditions: From daytime in winter to hunting at night. Enabled by Swiss technology.
Estimating distances easily
When seconds matter; first focal plane scopes are the preferred choice for shooters who will be utilizing reticle subtensions for target distance estimations. This tried and true method eliminates complicated mathematical formulas and allows you to easily estimate range or use the correct hold over point to take a long distance shot. As with reticles in the first focal plane, the distance between the reticle bars in relation to the target size remains constant with any magnification you choose. Your riflescope will become a tool that can be used to estimate the shooting distance at lightning speed.
iC Illumination Control
If the Blaser R8 bolt action rifle features an iC cocking slide, pushing the cocking slide into the ready-to-fire position automatically activates the illuminated dot in all Blaser riflescope models.
IVD – Intelligent Variable Dot
The Blaser 1–7x28 iC is state-of-the-art level performance additionally equipped with an Intelligent Variable Dot. Rough terrain, foul weather, and high levels of stress will put even the most experienced hunter to the test. The dual output feature of the illuminated dot is just the answer you have been searching for. At low power of magnification, 4x and lower, the illuminated dot is larger in size and ideal for fast moving game providing ideal situational awareness and intuitive target acquisition. The IVD’s dot intensity can also be adjusted by a side mounted turret.
QDC – Quick Distance Control
Shooting over very long distances while hunting is the exception rather than the rule. However, there are situations, in which a long-range shot may become necessary. Good, when you are technically prepared for being able to remain on target and not having to aim higher. The reticle adjustment of the Blaser riflescopes was specially developed for this purpose. Its highly precise and at the same time robust mechanics provide a consistently reliable repeat accuracy.
PARALLAX COMPENSATION: NO UNINTENTIONAL ADJUSTMENT POSSIBLE.
The adjustment turret for parallax is also protected against unintended movement. The turret is locked for a distance of approximately 100 m. The turret is also graduated for distances greater than 100 m and is easily pulled out to select the desired distance.
Rifle and scope – a perfect match
The Blaser riflescopes were designed by hunters with a passion for hunting. Thanks to the sophisticated layout and intuitive handling of all functional elements, the hunter can totally focus on a safe and accurate shot. Their distinctive design gives rifle and scope a perfectly shaped overall appearance.
58 mm OBJECTIVE LENS DIAMETER
Compared to riflescopes featuring a 56 mm objective lens diameter, 58 mm provide an additional light yield of 7%. This allows use of a higher magnification with better detail recognition in deep twilight or at night.
Blaser 4–20x58 iC
The twilight specialist – superior for sitting game and when hunting in the very last light. Excellent light gathering characteristics far exceed what other scopes provide in low light conditions. Making the impossible long range shot possible.
