RIFLE SCOPES OVERVIEW and TERMINOLOGY

(AO) Adjustable Objective: The front objective lens is adjustable so you will always be able to keep perfect focus when using a variable power rifle scope.

(E) Illuminated: The rifle scope has an illuminated reticle very good for low light conditions.

Exit Pupil: This is the amount of light that leaves or emits from the rear of the rifle scope tube towards your eye.

Eye Relief: Is the distance your eye will be from the end of the rifle scope while you still have a full view through the scope.

Fixed: A scope that is fixed means simply that it is a single power scope of fixed magnification.

(FOV): Field of View. Quality Optics offer a good field of view. This is what your view is when looking through the rifle scope. Normally when looking at specifications of a rifle scope FOV is stated as to how many feet of width you will be able to see when the object or target is a 100 yards away. If you have a high power/high magnification rifle scope then the field of view is reduced because the target at 100 yards is now apparently a lot closer meaning you can now only see part of the target... (up close and personal) So in short: FOV is reduced when magnification is increased.

Lens Coating: Fully multi coated optics are best. The coatings are applied to the rifle scope lenses to minimize reflection and to enhance light transmission.

Objective Lens: This is the lens at the front of your rifle scope. The larger the objective lens the more light it will let into your scope. So in poor light conditions the larger the lens the better.

Ocular Lens: The ocular lens is the lens nearest to your eye.Power:This is the amount of magnification over and above our normal eyesight. Normal eyesight is expressed as 1 times magnification. So if we are looking at a scope that is 6 times magnification then the object we are looking at will appear 6 times larger than our normal sight

Red Dot: A Red Dot rifle scope also used on bows shot guns and pistols has a red dot which is projected on to the front lens. This dot when aligned with the target is the impact point. (This is not a laser sighting device.) The dot is held within the scope and does not project out of the scope.

Reticle: Best described as the cross hairs for target centering and can come in many different forms e.g. Mill Dot, 30/30, NATO etc.Variable: Meaning the magnification of the rifle scope can be changed.

What the numbers mean: Example (1) 3-9x40AOE means, it is a 3 to 9 times magnification variable power rifle scope. With a 40mm Adjustable Objective(front) Lens.With an illuminated reticle. Example (2) 4x30 means 4 times fixed magnification rifle scope with a 30mmm objective lens.
