There are many cases when an illuminated dot in the reticle makes sense. Whether you're hunting whitetails in dense, dark forests or taking that once-in-a-lifetime shot at a leopard over bait in Africa, an illuminated sight can make all the difference. But if you've only got a few seconds to fire then you don't want to waste your time turning that illuminated reticle to the ON position.
Blaser and Zeiss have developed a revolutionary system that allows the shooter to accomplish both tasks at once. With a Zeiss IC (Illuminated Control) system, the scope is synchronous with the cocking device on the rifle.
This means that when you cock the rifle the scope is automatically illuminated, allowing for quick shots in poor light. When the rifle is de-cocked, the illumination turns off automatically.
It's a very fast and efficient system that preserves battery life, a technological breakthrough that literally mates the function of the gun with your optic. In addition, the Zeiss scope offers a very clear field of view, accurate ¼ MOA adjustments, and is durable enough to stand up to even the most demanding hunts. This rifle/optic combination from two of Germany's top companies might be one of the best hunting rigs of this or any other time.
ABOVE : Zeiss's IC models are synchronous to your rifle, meaning that the illumination feature will only come on when the rifle is cocked using the thumb safety. This preserves battery life and eliminates the need to fumble with an on/off switch just before the shot.
The Zeiss Victory V8 4.8-35x60 has 35x magnification combined with the BDC competition bullet drop compensator for ultimate long-distance shot excellence. The smallest targets appear highly detailed and so close that you can touch them. 92% light transmission and unique 60mm lens provide the nccessary brightness to enable accurate long-range shots even at high magnification in darkness.
A large exit pupil facilitates fast target acquisition, and the scope comes standard with parallax compensation. The Zeiss Victory V8 has the finest illuminated dot that features subtension the size of a two cent coin at a distance of 1000m.
