Konus Introduces New Riflescopes for 2015

posted on March 25, 2015

Riflescopes, spotting scopes, and electronic sights are highlighted as Konus announces their exciting new products for 2015. Each year the Konus team works hard to deliver new products that will help the hunter or shooter have good quality optics without breaking the bank in their respected categories. For example, the new Konus Pro F30 is an uncommon tactical riflescope you at an uncommon price you would expect to pay for all the features you receive. Including, first-focal-plane reticle which allows ranging at all magnifications along with an internal level bubble that removes canting for greater accuracy and so much more.

But that's not all that Konus is shedding light on for 2015. The new KonusPro 50mm IR Riflescope gives accuracy a whole new light. Mark Shore, vice president of sales and marketing, says, "The high demand for our dual illuminated 30mm scopes has spurred an unusually high request rate for a quality 1-inch scope having the same blue and red illumination. The new KonusPro 3X-9X50mm answers that request, but goes one step further, coming with the famous Konus unbreakable glass etched reticle."     

Konus knows there is not just one sighting answer for today's shooter. Their new SightPro R8 is an electronic sight with 8 different reticle patterns making it one of the most versatile electronic sights ever developed. An added benefit to this model is that it is rechargeable, and comes with a USA and a European plug for worldwide hunting.

Spotting scopes play an important part in the field and at the range. That's why Konus introduces a high-powered; zoom spotting scope kit with impeccable optical quality at a fantastic price. This15X-45X60mm spotting scope will turn heads this year and jaws will drop when the consumer sees its price.
