Variable magnification second focal plane (SFP) rifle scope designed for rapid engagement of targets at point blank to medium range. Ideal hunting scope when light weight and compact size are critical. Illuminated reticle allows rapid sight acquisition in mid to low light conditions. Would suit a 22LR rifle, in particular would be a fun addition to a semi-auto for informal competitions.  MRAD tactical turrets and reticle make sight adjustment quick and easy. 

Falcon scopes have been sold around the world for many years and there are many reviews across their product range. Their target audience is riflemen looking for great performance without having to pay premium prices. The reviews support how successful Falcon have been in hitting their target.  

Optical Features 

  • Fully multi-coated glass delivers excellent clarity and sharpness. The anti-reflective coatings work with the high quality glass to deliver maximum brightness. 
  • Second Focal Plane tactical reticle with 2 MRAD centre box and solid vertical and horizontal bars provides rapid target acquisition from point blank to medium distance targets. 
  • The MRAD reticle allows accurate holdover and ranging at 8x magnification. 
  • The reticle providse 10 MRAD of elevation holdover below zero and 5 above, with 5 MRAD left and right for windage.
  • Hash marks allow precise aiming when using the reticle to hold over.  See the diagram in the pictures for details. 
  • Glass-etched reticle means crisp cross hairs, labels every second MRAD.

Construction Features 

  • 30mm diameter main tube provides significant internal elevation and windage adjustment and improved rigidity compared to 1 inch tubes. Wide range of quality scope mounts available (not included). 
  • One-piece construction of main tube, objective and turret saddle ensures internal alignment for improved accuracy and visual performance, as well as strength and sealing. 
  • Constructed from aluminium for strength and rigidity with light weight. 
  • Waterproof construction and nitrogen gas purging prevents internal fogging. 
  • Rugged construction withstands recoil to 338 Lapua Magnum levels (providing good quality mounts are used in accordance with the manufacturers specifications). Reviewers attest to Falcon Optics ability to maintain reliability and repeatability through hard knocks. 
  • Durable anodised finish provides a low-glare matte surface, preventing reflections which could distract the shooter or alert quarry. 
  • Tactical turrets provide audible and tactile click feedback and visual confirmation of elevation and windage adjustment. 
  • Turrets have two rows of markings, eliminating the need for mental calculations on the second rotation of the turret when dialing to extremely long ranges. 

Internal Mechanism Design Features 

  • Low-friction, wear-resistant, precision-machined turret adjusters allow resetting of elevation and windage zero quickly, easily and accurately. 
  • Steel and brass turret clicker/detent mechanism.

Useability Features 

  • Fast focus eyepiece allows quick and easy reticle focusing.  
  • Tactical turrets allow dialling in elevation and windage adjustments without having to remove turret caps.
  • Large and wide turrets with a knurled, serrated top edge ensure a good grip, useful in cold conditions and when wearing gloves. 
  • Both elevation and windage turrets have markings showing the number of turns, reducing confusion when adjustments of more than one full turn of the turret have been made.  
  • 10 MRAD per turret revolution. 
  • Both the reticle and the turrets are in the same unit. MRAD turret and reticle make sighting in and in the field sight adjustment simple - measure the change using the reticle and then dial it on the turrets, regardless of the magnification. No need for mental maths (or reaching for the calculator) to convert MOA to MRAD or vice versa.   
  • Metric MRAD system simplifies the mental model required for adjustment. One MRAD is 10cm at 100m and each click is 0.1 MRAD, (1cm at 100m) at 8x magnification. 
  • Ranging is simplified using the MRAD divisions on the reticle against a known/ estimated size of the target, again reducing the mental math required compared to an MOA reticle.
