Smart shooters know that less is often more when it comes to dialing magnification on a riflescope. The new XTR II 1-8x24mm gives shooters the benefit of a true 1x optic—excellent situational awareness with a wide field of view and both-eyes-open shooting, quick target acquisition for fast initial and follow-up shots, and improved marksmanship from improvised shooting positions thanks to less perceived reticle wobble.

While quality is never a bad investment, most of us are interested in a durable sight, with good features, at an affordable price. Enter the AR-F3.
