LAS VEGAS-- In keeping with their growing role in the riflescope market, MINOX USA will feature two expanded lines of quality riflescopes as their headline items at SHOT Show 2013 in Las Vegas. Also being introduced will be new German-made binoculars, a new trail camera and other quality optics.
After the great success of their award-winning ZA line, MINOX now has added a "premium, Made in Germany" line of ZE 5i riflescopes, and an very affordable entry-level line of ZV 3 3~9x40 riflescopes.
The ZE 5i riflescopes have been meticulously designed and engineered to meet the high standards of serious hunters across the globe. All feature a 30mm main tube, an illuminated reticle in the second focal plane and a 5x zoom range. The illuminated reticle is a center dot illumination with 11 different brightness settings and an "off" position between each brightness level.
The ZE 5i line is available in 2~10x50, 3~15x56, and 5~25x56. These premium "Made in Germany" riflescopes are priced under $2,000.
The entry-level ZV 3 'scopes deliver German design and engineering to meet any hunter's demand for quality gear at an impressive price-performance range. They provide great optical performance, thanks to fully multi-coated lenses and reliable mechanics, including long 4-inch+ eye relief. They also offer precise 1/4 MOA windage and elevation adjustments. The lightweight aluminum body is nitrogen filled and waterproof.
These riflescopes are available in 3~9x40 with both the Mino-Plex and BDC reticles as options. MSRPs start at $269. As with all MINOX riflescopes, these ZV 3 entry-level riflescopes and the premium ZE 5i Series are covered by the MINOX Total Coverage Lifetime Warranty for added peace of mind, for as long as one owns the product.
