First Look: EOTech Vudu 1-8x24 SFP Riflescope

posted on June 1, 2021

Competition shooters and hunters demand speed and precision from their riflescopes for close quarters to mid-range shooting applications. The new EOTech Vudu 1-8x24 SFP riflescope offers a versatile 8X zoom range so that shooters can quickly dial in the optimal magnification for any target presentation. Ideal for any AR-type rifle, bolt action, lever action or single-shot rifle, the Vudu 1-8x24 SFP provides tactical precision for shooters of all types, especially when every shot counts.

The Vudu 1-8x24 SFP has a wide field-of-view and a daylight-visible, illuminated aiming dot for fast target acquisition in almost any lighting condition. The scope’s field of view at 100 yards is 105.8 feet at 1X and 13.2 feet at 8X. The reticle features a .5-MOA illuminated center dot along with bullet drop compensator (BDC) hashmarks. The Vudu 1-8x24 SFP’s HC3 reticle has four hold-over points providing the fastest compensating method for bullet drop on targets at different distances.

The Vudu 1-8x24 SFP features a rugged 30 mm T6 aircraft-aluminum tube with a matte-black hard-anodized finish. This rugged housing protects the scope’s internal components, and bright and ultra-clear multi-coated HD lenses enhance light transmission, an essential in a scope meant for real-world shooting conditions. The 1-8x24 SFP is waterproof, fogproof and shockproof, just like all the scopes in the Vudu lineup.  

Low-profile capped turrets add to the riflescope’s sleek profile, while the finger-adjustable turrets, with .5 MOA clicks, make adjustments in the field a snap. The power and brightness buttons are intuitively combined with the battery compartment. The auto power-down to sleep mode kicks in after two hours should the shooter forget to turn off the switch, helping squeeze up to 500 hours run-time out of its CR2032 battery.
