Safariland Introduces Premier Scope, Newest Addition to Optics Line
Jacksonville, Florida – Safariland, a BAE Systems line of business, announced today the latest addition to the newly introduced line of Safariland optics, the RR-CQLR-1. This new magnified scope features a ranging component and illuminated reticle, improving aiming effectiveness in both low light and daylight conditions.
Designed by Pride-Fowler, Inc., the RR-CQLR-1 provides a precise aim regardless of the power or magnification settings. The scope features a convenient fast-focus eyepiece adjustment and multi-coated lenses that reduce reflections and provide a clearer image of the target. The reticle is aligned in the first focal plane, keeping the reticle and target in the same proportion in any magnification. The RR-CQLR-1 is easily adjusted horizontally for windage and vertically for elevation with positive ¼ Minute of Angle (M.O.A) clicks on the low-profile, target-type knobs allowing the shooter to quickly compensate for crosswinds. Any changes made can be reset back to zero by simply clicking a button.
The RR-CQLR-1 is optimal for .308 Winchester and .223 Remington ammunition as well as other similar ballistic coefficients and velocities. The scope’s variable magnification is
1-4x24mm and is encased in durable 30mm one-piece 6061-T6 aluminium tube, which is available in a matte black anodized finish.
The new Safariland RR-CQLR-1 has an MSRP starting at $1,290 and is available for purchase through Safariland dealers and direct to the end user at www.holsters.com.
