Preview: Maven RS.2 2-10X Riflescope

posted on June 13, 2021

Both the least expensive model in the company’s line, and the only one with its reticle located within the second focal plane, Maven’s 2-10X 38 mm riflescope is well-suited to a variety of short-to-medium-range hunting pursuits. Though the 12.4-oz. RS.2 is an ultralight optic, Maven bundles the RS.2 with extra low-dispersion glass for enhanced optical clarity and coated for increased image contrast.

Maven's RS.2 2-10X 38 mm ultralight riflescope is built with a 1" body tube that allows up to 50-m.o.a. elevation and windage adjustment. Furthermore, its low-profile turrets provide audible and crisp adjustments with 1/4-m.o.a. values. Maven provides a fixed parallax that is set for 150 yards to avoid additional bulk and weight.

Offered with either a duplex or Maven’s Simplified Holdover Reticle, the RS.2 is nitrogen-purged to help resist the fogging of its lenses, and is rated waterproof down to 3 meters. A lifetime warranty comes standard, too. The RS.2 is made in Japan and retails for $550. To learn more, go to the Maven Outdoor Equipment website;
