The new tactical SMRS 1-6.5x 24 mm scope combines close quarters precision with outstanding mid-range capability. With a true 1x magnification and the new BTR-1 and BTR-2 reticle options, this scope delivers instant target acquisition and calibrated ranging for longer shots. The scope features an illuminated reticle with 11 brightness settings.

The BTR-1 reticle is an illuminated, ballistically calibrated reticle that is optimized for use with 5.56 NATO/.223 Rem. This bullet drop compensating (BDC) reticle provides accurate ranging and aiming to 600 meters. The BTR-2 is an illuminated mil-hash reticle that allows for ranging, holdover and windage adjustments. Both the BTR-1 and BTR-2 illuminated reticles are available in first or second focal plane.

Bushnell Elite Tactical series scopes are built to withstand the rigors of the field, whether in military and law enforcement situations, competitions or countless rounds at the range. With fully multi-coated optics and the new anti-reflective Ultra Wide Band (UWB) coating, the scope delivers light transmission across more of the visible light spectrum than before. This feature leads to enhanced clarity, exceptional brightness and true color from dawn to dusk.

Built from high-quality forged aluminum alloy, the scope features a robust 30 mm one-piece tube and Argon purging. Integrated to deliver long-lasting performance and reliability, Argon provides added resistance against corrosion, reduced chances of fogging and longer seal life.

The scopes are 100 percent fog proof, shock proof and waterproof. Bushnell takes all-weather performance a step further with its patented RainGuard® HD lens coating. The permanent, water-resistant finish gives shooters a clear view when weather conditions present a challenge.

Beginning in 2012, every product in the Elite Tactical series is not only covered by the Bushnell limited lifetime warranty, the entire product line is also backed with the new one-year, no-risk Bushnell Bulletproof Guarantee. The 100 percent money back guarantee is valid up until one year from the original date of purchase.
