Bushnell has extended its AR Optics line with four additional sights that are each optimized for the AR platform.
The first two are purpose-built, caliber-specific riflescopes—the cutting-edge Accelerate 3x prism sight and the ambidextrous Transition 3x Magnifier.
The 6.5 Creedmoor, a favorite of long-distance shooters and hunters alike, can be paired with Bushnell’s new AR Optics 4.5-18x 40 mm scope. A Drop Zone 6.5 Creedmoor reticle is designed to maximize the round’s performance by providing holdover points for shots out to 600 yards. Tactical-style target turrets allow fast adjustments, and the side parallax focus allows clear target images at any range. The fully multi-coated optics give a bright, crisp sight picture and are housed in a durable 1" aircraft-grade aluminum tube.
Bushnell has also added an optic for shooters favoring ARs chambered in .300 Blackout. The Bushnell AR Optics 1-4x24 mm illuminated scope is equipped with a specially designed DropZone .300 Blackout Illuminated reticle. The reticle features holdover points calibrated to both subsonic and supersonic .300 Blackout ballistics. The scope’s first focal plane design performs like a high-performance red dot at low power. When turned up to 4x magnification, it offers holdover points out to 300 yards. Magnification changes are nearly instantaneous with Bushnell’s exclusive ThrowDown PCL (power charge lever).
Gas guns like ARs are well-suited for compact optics, yet red dots don’t offer the magnification sometimes needed to reach downrange. The new AR Optics Accelerate 4X Prism Scope is designed to bridge the gap between the two, offering the compact stature of a red dot with the 4x magnification of a riflescope. The illuminated BTR-3 reticle in the scope offers five brightness settings in both red and green. The center circle and red dot work together for quick acquisition, with drop points for long-range shots. The mil-based design works with any caliber firearm.
Rounding out the new additions is the AR Optics Transition 3X Magnifier. Simply mount it behind a red dot optic with the ambidextrous flip mount. Engage the 3X magnifier when you need it, and flip it out of the way when you don’t. The Transition 3x Magnifier pairs perfectly with Bushnell’s AR Optics TRS-25, but works with any red dot. It’s built with fully multi-coated optics that provide optimal light transmission and is waterproof, fog proof and shock proof.
