New Leatherwood/Hi-Lux Top-Angle Focus "Professional" Models
You can pay a lot more for a quality riflescope, but you'll be hard pressed to buy one that is better built than the new Top-Angle Focus 30mm tube "Professional" ATR* Series scopes now available from Leatherwood/Hi-Lux Optics. One thing is for certain, you won't find a scope with as many great features - even at twice the price!
Every "Professional" model starts with a premium quality one-piece aluminum tube, featuring heavier walls than used by other scope makers. The erector housing is larger in outside diameter, adding to the overall rigidity of this scope. Plus, it permits additional machining inside to allow for added windage and elevation adjustment, as well as forming a recoil shoulder against the front ring for heavy recoiling rifles such as the .338 Winchester Magnum, the .375 H&H Magnum, or even a .50 caliber BMG long-range tactical rifle. The internal erector is much beefier than that found in "standard quality" scope construction, providing a more solid mounting for internal lenses.
A great new feature of this model is the Top-Angle Focus adjustment, which makes it easier than ever to adjust for parallax and keep the sight picture and target crisp and sharp at all ranges. Located just forward of the elevation adjustment turret, and off-set at a 45-degree angle, the Top-Angle Focus turret is much easier to reach than objective lens mounted parallax adjustment…or even the side-mounted parallax focus adjustment of a few other scopes. Being mounted at an angle also makes it easier for the left-handed shooter to reach.
Another great feature of this scope is the "No-Math Mil-Dot" reticle. Determining range has never been easier. Brackets on all four sides of the juncture of the crosshairs allow the shooter to zoom in the power of the scope until a target of known size is framed by the crosshair and bracket (or between two brackets for larger targets), then all the shooter has to do is look at the range on the eyepiece and hold accordingly to allow for bullet drop. The system is quick…and accurate.
Other standard features include Leatherwood-designed "Tri-Center" spring tension on the erector housing for positive windage and elevation click adjustment; photographic quality lenses that have been fully multi-coated for 99-percent light transmission to insure a clear, bright sight picture; quick focus eyepiece; covered target-style windage and elevation adjustment turrets; and Leatherwood/Hi-Lux's wear resistant PermaCoat finish for long lasting good looks.
The 3-12x, 4-16x, 6-24x, and 7-30x Top-Angle Focus "Professional" ATR Series scopes all feature a 50mm objective lens. Each scope comes with a front lens shade extension and flip up front and rear lens covers. Suggested retail prices are $299.00 for the 3-12x...$349.00 for the 4-16x...$449.00 for the 7-30x.
