Earlier this year Bushnell announced a newly designed series of rifle scopes and binoculars named Engage. The optics target the hunter that wants reliable and sturdy scopes at a reasonable price.
Both the new Bushnell rifle scopes and the binoculars feature multi-coated glass. The coating features the new EXO Barrier which is added at the end of the coating process and is being called the best protective lens coating technology by Bushnell.
The different coatings are designed to capture bright and clear images. Glare is prevented and they also actively repel water, oil, dust, and debris.
Engage Rifle Scopes
The scopes offer a new look. They have upgraded features and also a new reticle option. The scopes are available in nine different configurations ranhing from 2-7x36mm to 6-24x50mm.
Five of these models will have a 1 inch tube and the other four feature 30 mm tubes. The 1 inch scopes have low-profile elevation and windage turrets which are capped.
All turrets on the 30 mm tubes feature newly designed easy-to-use zero reset locking mechanisms. After zeroing in your rifle you can reset the turrets without any tools to read zero. When you make adjustments in the field you always an dial back to zero to have a known starting point.
The scopes also feature a new reticle, the Bushnell Deploy MOA reticle. It features 1 MOA windage and elevation marks. It’s designed to reach short and mid-range targets. In addition, all scopes feature Butler Creek Flip Caps.
The MSRP for the Engage rifle scopes starts at a low $149.99. The high-end scope has an MSRP of $449.99. Street pricing will eventually end up being lower.
Similar to the scopes, the binoculars also feature the EXO Barrier coating. This provides resistance to all environmental impacts while providing a clear image.
There are four configurations being offered that range from 8x42mm to 12x50mm. All binoculars use ED Prime Glass to ensure sharp and crisp images. PC-3 Phase Coating is added to enhance the contrast and resolution of the image.
The diopter adjustments can be locked to permanently secure the desired focus settings. The binoculars are built tough to withstand the use in the field without problems.
