4-16x50 MOA, P3 MilDot RETICLE, Illuminated, Police Marksman
The popular 4–16 x 50 in an illuminated reticle LP model. As with all our LP series scopes, an illuminated reticle and parallax adjustment are standard, each controlled by a separate turret. Our LP system features a color-coded elevation knob that gives the shooter instant reference as to where the elevation is set. Just one turn of the knob provides 28 minutes of elevation. A window within the dial then changes to yellow, and one additional turn provides an additional 28 minutes of adjustment. The entire 56-minute adjustment range can be covered in just two turns of the elevation knob. Click values are 1/4 MOA.
P-3 Mil-dot reticle
The P-3 Mil-dot Reticle was developed by the U.S. Marine Corps in the late 1970s as an aid for the Marine sniper in estimating distances. It has since become the military standard for range estimating within all branches of the service.
Built at the request of the U.S. military to provide a long-range capable scope with a smaller objective diameter. Includes illuminated reticle and parallax adjustment, each controlled by a separate turret. It is equipped with a special Gen 2™ XL reticle with illuminated dots and cetner crosshair.
There are two elevation adjustment: double-turn clockwise turret with 1/4 MOA click values and 56 MOA total adjustment, plus our color-coded window indicators which graphically illustrate the reticle's position within the overall adjustment travel. This prevents the shooter from becoming "lost" within the adjustment range. Complete illuminated reticle control is standard. Offered with P3 reticle.
The name “mil-dot” comes from the term “millradian,” and the dot that is spaced in 1 mil increments on the crosshairs. By using the mil formula, a table can be generated based upon the size of the object being range-estimated. This table is included with the scope. The object viewed is bracketed between the dots, and by consulting the table the distance can be estimated.
