With five new riflescopes and three red-dot optics, Bushnell’s Tac Optics line is designed to get shooters on target no matter their range.

What does Bushnell’s new Tac optics line bring to the table:

  • With prices from $360 to $1,446, the Tac Optics line has options for every budget.
  • The riflescopes have power range options including 10x, 5-15x, 6-24x and 4.5-30x.
  • They are outfitted, depending on model, with 40mm or 50mm objective lenses.
  • There are three Tac Optics red dots: Mini Cannon, Lil P(rism) and Big D(ot).
  • The Mini Cannon offers four reticles, the Lil P(rism) is among the smallest prism sights available, and the Big D(ot) offers an extended field of view.

Iron sights… it’s tough to beat them. They are ready for action the moment a shooter is and provide practical accuracy and speed to those who know how to handle them. But even with the advantages the rock-solid and age-old aiming solution offers, modern technology has enhanced the shooter’s ability to hit a target or targets, more precisely and with greater rapidity than ever before.

Optics, in every shape and size, have revolutionized modern shooting, making marksmen — whether close or long range — more efficient. This is especially true when it comes advancements in optics tailored to get the most out of AR-15-style rifles and other tactical arms. Bushnell Optics has turned an especially studied eye to this corner of the shooting world in 2018, introducing a new scope and red-dot optics line engineered to milk the most out of today’s most popular semi-automatic rifles.

The Tac Optics line is a full-spectrum family of eight aiming solutions, covering every conceivable shooting situation and range. And with prices ranging from around $360 to $1,446, the line has an option to fit nearly every budget.

For the most part, Tac Optics riflescopes are adjustable power, with 5-15x, 6-24x and 4.5-30x options. The company ensures each optic has the ability to keep pace with its magnification, outfitting them with generous 40mm and 50mm objective lenses and multi-coating all lens surfaces to enhance image delivery. And they are set up with, depending on the model, standard Mil-Dot reticles.

The exceptions are the 6-25x50mm Tac Optics scopes, which come with the option of an illuminated Mil-Dot reticle or an elaborate G2 reticle. These scopes are ideally set up to take full advantage of their reticles, given both have them placed on the first focal plane, and are thus usable no matter the magnification. Uniquely, the new line also boasts a fixed-power option (10x) with a 40mm objective lens that is ideal for those who embrace a much simpler system.

Each Tac Optics scope features well-sized turrets with ample adjustment for windage and elevation — 50 to 120 MOA. And weighing from 15 to 27 ounces, the scopes aren’t overburdening even on the lightest rifle setup.

Bushnell has also released three new red-dot optics in the Tac Optics line: the Mini Cannon, Lil P(rism) and Big D(ot). Each is designed to deliver superior battery life and bring a little something different to the table. The Mini Cannon offers the versatility of four reticle options at the push of a button. The Lil P is one of the industry’s smallest prism sights now available. And the Big D delivers an extremely large field of view with its massive 37mm objective lens.

The TAC Optics red dots are shockproof and feature adjustable brightness settings to adapt to whatever lighting conditions a shooter might face. The 1x optics are also unobtrusive, weighing in at 7 to 13 ounces.
