Fixed power riflescopes.

4×40 and 6×40 are very versatile scopes, simple to use and suitable for a range of calibers including .22 rimfires.

Variable power riflescopes.

Starting from the 1-5 through the 3-9, and up to the 6-24 powers, we have a large range of options to cover any use you can think of. From hunting through to target or varmint, we have a scope for you. Our scopes have a variety of features, depending on the model. From choice of reticle to front or side parallax, illuminated reticles, sunshades, flip up covers, target adjustments for windage and elevation, or normal low profile adjusters with protective covers. Available features are listed in the individual product descriptions. Choose the features that suit you the best.

Red dot and reflex and prism sights.

We have a range of options here, but basically, this group of optics is suitable for closer range hunting of fast moving game, with fast target acquisition and clear bright reticles a priority. The majority of this class of optics will fit straight on to common Weaver style or picatinny rails. The prism scopes are usually of a fixed 2.5x or 3x power magnification.

Compact riflescopes.

The 2-7, 3-9×40 and the 3-9×42 IR scopes are for compact or lightweight rifles where weight and size is an issue. Ideally suited for lever action , pump action and compact bolt action rifles.

Airgun scopes.

Available models are the 4×32, the 2-7×32 and a 3-12×40. Built tough to withstand the pounding given to them by modern spring/piston rifles. The lenses are held in place using a different method than usual because of this. Also, parallax adjustment is provided down to the closer ranges that air rifles can be used at. These scopes are also suitable for .22 rimfires where a tough scope is needed.

Laser sights.

Max power < 5mW

We have two models laser sights, the ND51-19 red laser suitable only for night use or use in sheds and other outbuildings. The GL-8XY is a green laser suitable for use over a spotlight or daytime in lower light conditions. Both can be attached to firearms or scopes using a variety of options.
