First Look: Trijicon Tenmile Riflescope

posted on January 9, 2020
Trijicon expanded its line of premium riflescopes in 2020 with the launch of its all-new Tenmile and Tenmile HX series of optics. Both lines are designed for serious long-range shooting, and several options are available in each line, with select riflescopes available in either first or second focal planes and MOA or MRAD reticles.

The company boasts that each model in the Tenmile lineup is "Alaska-to-Africa Tested," ensuring that the optics can provide dependable performance in temperatures ranging from -20 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Every model also undergoes durability testing, enduring 5,000 rounds of simulated heavy-cartridge recoil to ensure that there is no reticle shift. The optics are drop-tested, immersion-tested and filled with dry nitrogen to eliminate fogging in harsh conditions.

Six models are available in the Trijicon Tenmile collection, ranging from 3-18x44mm on the low-magnification end to 5-50x56mm on the high-magnification end. This extraordinary zoom range makes it possible for today's top-tier precision shooters to acquire their targets at distance clearly and make match-winning shots, thanks to the optical clarity and illuminated reticles offered in each model. Milling and hold-over reticles are available to compensate for windage and elevation at longer ranges.

Each optic in the Trijicon Tenmile lineup features up to 100 MOA and 29.1 MRAD of elevation adjustment, ensuring that shooters have the built-in mechanical capabilities to compensate for ballistic drop at extreme distances. The optics are available in 30mm and 34mm tube sizes to accommodate this expanded adjustment range. Other features found on Tenmile riflescopes include an easy-focus eyepiece and multi-coated, broadband, anti-reflective glass designed to provide enhanced light transmission, fine image detail and clarity and zero image distortion.

The Trijicon Tenmile HX options are purpose-built to provide hunters with long-range optics designed to perform well in the field. Available in four separate models, these HX optics have glass optimized for low-light use, as well as illuminated, hunting-based reticles available in the first or second focal plane. The low-profile design of Tenmile HX riflescopes also prevents turrets and focus rings from snagging on brush and branches in the field.

Suggested retail pricing on the Trijicon Tenmile optics lineup starts at $1,399 and tops out at $2,700, depending on the options and magnification range selected. For more information on these new riflescopes, visit Check out detailed specifications on available models here:
