Featuring fully multi-coated optics, the AR Optics line provides exceptional light transmission and image clarity. With an overall length just over nine inches, the scope is a perfect fit on AR-style rifles. Built from a durable, one-piece 30mm tube, the riflescope has plenty of travel for extended-range elevation adjustments.
