Riton Optics is releasing the new 3 PRIMAL 3-18x50 mm riflescope. This cross-over scope is the latest product to join Riton Optics’ ample offerings of riflescopes.

The 3 PRIMAL riflescope is suitable both for long distance shooting and hunting as it has a wide magnification range–from 3X all the way to 18X. The scope’s 50mm objective lens aids in providing the shooter brightness and clarity along with strong light transmission across lighting conditions. The 3 PRIMAL makes use of Riton Optics’ LRH (Long Range Hunter) first focal plane (FFP) reticle. The reticle is also illuminated, and all brightness settings are adjusted via the parallax knob; there are six brightness settings. Like many modern optics, illumination is turned on or off in between each brightness adjustment level.

The 3 PRIMAL’s body measures 30mm wide and is constructed from aircraft grade aluminum that is anodized in black. The optic is fogproof, shockproof and waterproof–like all other glass sold by Riton Optics.
