I am amazed by the optics industry and how it has been increasing quality, decreasing price, and then increasing capability. For a while 1-8x optics have been in the 1000$ + range, but a few companies have introduced “working man” priced optics in the 1-8 flavor. Atibal’s latest offering is a 1-8x retailing at 399.99 with a free mount for a limited offer and is targeted towards 3 gunners and competitors on a budget.
Here are the specs:
- Magnification: 1-8x
- Objective Lens Diameter: 24mm
- Eye Relief: 4 inches
- Field of View: 105-12.45 ft
- Tube Size: 30 mm
- Turret Style: low profile capped
- Adjustment Per Click: 1/2 MOA
- Max Elevation Adjustment: 120 MOA
- Max Windage Adjustment: 120 MOA
- Weight: 17.4 ounces with no mount
- Length: 10 inches
- Made of 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum
I don’t have this one in my hands yet, but keep an eye out! If it is durable and has good clarity, we may have a winner for an all around budget variable. It also features a detachable Cat Tail out of the box. Can’t wait to see it. See it at Atibal’s website Here.
