ZeroTech Optics has just expanded its catalog with the LR Hunter series of rifle scopes, a hybrid optics line that aims to do it all.
ZeroTech Optics is an Australian company with a focus on hunting scopes, so it only makes sense that their products are as versatile and rugged as the land they’re designed in. Their latest riflescope series is called the LR Hunter line, and the optics have an interesting set of features that could be appreciated by anyone who hunts in a variety of different environments and ranges.
At launch, the LR Hunter series features two scopes, both called the Thrive HD. One is in 4-16x44mm, and the other is in 6-24x50mm. Both models, however, are First Focal Plane (FFP) designs and use the LR Hunter glass-etched, illuminated reticle. ZeroTech claims that by incorporating an illuminated reticle into an FFP scope design, they’ve created a true hybrid, “do it all” hunting scope.
The LR Hunter scopes achieve this by providing a more traditional sight picture on lower magnification levels but enabling better precision when used with greater magnification at longer ranges. This is a great feature not only for Australian hunters, but many American hunters as well. When chasing certain kinds of game found in both countries, you never know when you’ll be presented with a shot very close by or at the very edge of your maximum engagement distance. The LR Hunter scopes should make either shot equally achievable.
Both scope models in the LR Hunter series will include a set of metal flip-up lens covers, a scope multitool, an instruction manual, reticle range chart and a microfiber cloth. MSRPs are not yet available.
