Brea, CA - January 7, 2013 - U.S. Optics, Inc., manufacturers of the world's finest rifle telescopes for military, Law Enforcement and civilian use, have announced that they will be debuting their newest rifle optic, the SR8 (1-8x30mm), which is proving to be the most versatile and rugged short to medium range rifle optic ever, at their booth (#20031) at the 2013 SHOT Show, in Las Vegas, NV.
Featuring the new 8:1 zoom ratio, the SR8 can be used similarly to that of a red-dot reflex sight at true 1x, making it one of the first variable power optics with a true 1x magnification. The SR8 allows this while providing threat identification and engagements at distances in excess of over 800 yards.
The optical clarity of the SR8 is achieved through a precision-engineered lens system, with advanced lens coatings for superior performance in the harshest conditions. With the simple push of a button, a Second Focal Plane (SFP) red-dot can be turned on and used in total daylight, while the First Focal Plane (FFP) reticle allows for ranging and the MIL knobs and reticles offer exact dimensional accuracy.
As with all U.S. Optics scopes, the SR8 is constructed of Type III hard-anodized 6061-T6 aluminum; making it extremely durable and lightweight. Combined with the low profile sleek design, the new SN-8 makes for a snag free tool in all shooting situations.
"At U.S. Optics, we work hard to ensure that we provide the best optical solutions to our customers," said U.S. Optic's Vice President of Sales And Marketing, Dave Roberts. "As an American manufacturer, we take pride in delivering the best products and meeting the needs of our war fighters, first responders and civilian customers."
