Ranch Rifles and Ranch Rifle Optics

Bushnell Rifle ScopesI’ve spent enough time on the internet gun boards to hear all of the squabbling about the Mini 14 Ranch rifles.   The short answer on Mini 14 accuracy is this, they are good for what they were originally intended to be used for, and that was to be used for “a few quick shots”.   The Mini 14 Ranch rifle is highly recommended for those in Coyote Country or for varmint hunting.   They are light and can easily accomodate 30-40mm rifle optics.   While we are aware that the .223 has long range capablilities, I highly recommend something in the 3-9×40 power.   You can the wider objective and some amount of magnification.
Bushnell rifle scopes options can vary from 1.5-4.5×32 to 4.5-30x50mm.   The smaller the objective the darker your view will be, but we also acknowlege that you pay for what you get.   Bushnell optics have been around for a long time and are defanitely rugged enough for most hunting and target shooting purposes.


The Plinkers Optics

Tasco RiflescopesSome of the Tasco optics can in a 1″ or 3/4″  tube so make sure you put some thought into what kind of size you need and get the proper scope rings. Tasco Pronghorn Rifle Scope 3-9X 40 30/30 Matte 1″ is a great scope to start out with.  There are a few tasco riflescopes that are good for Varmint hunting, too.   The Tasco Target Rifle Scope 6-24X 42 Illuminated Mil-Dot Matte has an illuminated reticle for even more possibilities.

Hopefully I don’t sound demeaning in calling Tasco riflescopes a plinkers scope, but I gotta be honest.  They are. and they are possible one of the best starting scopes any shooter can begin with.  Riflescopes can cost in the thousands of dollars, but not everyone needs a combat optic that can see the rings around Neptune.



Hunting Optics the Zeiss way

Zeiss Rifle scopesFor the hunter who can appreciate the advantage of confidence, Zeiss offers two riflescope platforms that feature an array of objective sizes, reticle configurations, and laser rangefinding capabilities. So there’s a riflescope that’s perfectly designed to match every hunting situation.

Whatever suits your hunting style, Zeiss riflescopes offer unmatched ease of use so it’s possible to react quickly – and confidently – when the opportunity arises. The robust, one-piece tube bodies of Conquest riflescopes are built to stand up to the most abusive recoil and demanding terrains. Designed to meet the needs of every hunting style and scenario, Conquest scopes excel in whatever situation presents itself. Available with a variety of reticles, including RAPID-Z®, Conquest scopes feature Zeiss MC coating for enhanced light transmission, anodized finishes, and are waterproof, dust proof, and nitrogen filled to prevent fogging.


You can’t hit what you can’t see

Leupold ScopesLike many novice shooters, we start out with whatever we can get our hands on.  There are a lot of cheap optics on the market that all fall in the under $100 market that may work fine for somebody just looking to plink or use for hunting once a year, but I’ve put enough lead downrange to know that serious shooters don’t want to be sitting on a firine line watching a reticle spin when they are trying to sight in.  Some gun owners will get those gun show specials only to find out that all of those cheap optics they bought won’t last a lifetime.Durability is only one part of the selection.  Hunting early in the morning or late in the afternoon can be a challege especially for those not equipment with quality optics.

The Xtended Twilight Lens System™ optimizes the transmission of low-light wavelengths, so you see the details of low-light scenes in greater, brighter detail than with any other riflescope availableLow-profile SpeeDial™ adjustments smoothly slide up and open for adjustment.The finger-adjustable ¼-MOA click adjustments are easy to zero.A more generous eyebox than you’ll find even in premium European optics.Blackened lens edges reduce light diffusion, so more usable light reaches the shooter’s eye, for a brighter image with higher resolution.If you want to know what I mean, next time you have the ability to compare various optics side to side, set the magnification on each to maximum and compare the brightness of each.  In most quality gun shops you’ll find a selection of Leupold Scopes and I challege you to list the manufacturers that are equal or better.

Hunting and Tactical Rifle Optics

Trijicon OpticsFor decades, Trijicon’s Brilliant Aiming Solutions™ have been trusted by those who defend America; like the Marines, Army Special Forces, Navy Seals and FBI. Which is just another reason elite firearms manufacturers such as Glock, Smith & Wesson, Beretta and Springfield, among others, continue to offer Trijicon as original equipment on their firearms — more than any other illuminated system in the world.

Trijicon’s founder, Glyn Bindon, devised a way to bring both-eyes-open shooting and magnified optics together for the first time. This discovery has been named in his honor— the Bindon Aiming Concept™ (BAC). Aiming with both eyes open gives you a far superior sense of balance and a wider field-of-view. Combining these benefits with a magnified Trijicon Optics sight gives you a considerable advantage over your target.



Nikon Rifle Scopes

Nikon Rifle ScopesChoosing the right riflescope is as important as choosing the right rifle – many experts agree that it can be even more critical to the success of a hunt. The fact that most rifles today no longer come equipped with iron sights is testament alone to the need for a telescopic sight, but it is the quality of the sight that can make the difference between getting your riflescope’s crosshairs on a trophy or going home empty handed.

Nikon has a large selection of highly rugged, Nikon Rifles Scopes, shotgun scopes, muzzleloading rifle scopes, turkey scopes, handgun scopes and other specialty optical sights, including dot sights. From the flagship Nikon Monarch Riflescope line and its Monarch Gold Riflescope and Monarch X Scope 30mm tube variations with light transmission pushed to an incredible 95% – to the Buckmasters riflescopes, Omega and SlugHunter lines with 92% – and the ProStaff and Team Realtree scopes with 90% light transmission – Nikon has made optical performance its trademark and has turned riflescope optical design into an art form. All Nikon riflescopes are backed by the Nikon Lifetime Full Warranty.


Leupold Scopes

Leupold ScopesIt’s a decidedly American story: one century ago in 1907, a young German immigrant named Fred Leupold set up a one man shop at 5th and Oak Streets in Portland, Oregon, repairing optics for surveying equipment. Leupold & Stevens is still family owned, though our focus has turned from surveying to helping people all across the globe survey their environments with the innovative, high-performance sports optics and accessories.

A lot happened in between. Fred Leupold was joined by his brother-in-law, Adam Voelpel. Later, an ingenious and prolific inventor and consulting engineer named John Cyprian Stevens became a partner in the business. The small company survived the First World War and the Great Depression. But it was the Second World War that would change the company forever. Working with the U.S. Army on a riflescope and the Navy on Leuopold optics for use aboard ships, the engineers at Leupold learned the secrets of waterproofing and durable construction that would completely change the world of sports optics.
