Lucid P8 4X Prism Optic

Featuring a wide, open field of view, a blue illuminated reticle that is quick for the human eye to pick up and a trio of mounting options, the fixed 4X P8 prismatic scope from Lucid Optics is a great option for a variety of mid-range shooting applications.

The reticle, which is powered by a single AAA battery and has 10 brightness settings, is composed of a 2-m.o.a. central aiming dot surrounded by a 16-m.o.a. circle, with BDC-style hold points positioned every 4 m.o.a. down its center.

The nitrogen-purged P8 weighs just 8.4 ozs., and three separate Picatinny rail mounts of varying heights included with the optic allow it to be used with a broad range of firearm platforms.

MSRP is $599. For more information, visit
