CARL ZEISS SPORTS OPTICS INTRODUCES VM/V 6-24x56 RIFLESCOPE
Zeiss Offers a Highly Reliable and Precise Riflescope for Hunting and Sport Shooting Chester, 02/14/2003. Carl Zeiss Sports Optics announces the latest introduction to the V-Series line of riflescopes with the addition of the VM/V 6-24x56. Developed for the long-range shooter in mind, this riflescope is ideal for hunting, varmint or precision shooting at great distances.
As with all riflescopes in the VM/V series, optimal shooting precision is guaranteed by the characteristic features of the VM/V 6-24x56. With the largest elevation adjustment in its class at 57.6 inches coupled with the 18.6-foot to 5.2-foot field of view, this riflescope enables the shooter to quickly and confidently adjust the point of impact for that long shot. Additionally 1/8" MOA click adjustments allow a very exact correction of the point of impact.
Equipped with a turret mounted parallax adjustment, the new VM/V 6-24x56 eliminates the need for the shooter to take his eye off the target. Again, this allows for a faster, more accurate shot. The user-friendly external target turret knobs have no caps for the shooter to lose and make it easier to view the windage and elevation. The 56mm objective lens clarity and light transmission is outstanding exceeds any other and provides perfect balance without adding weight or requiring raised mounts. The world-renowned T* multi-coatings applied to the lenses enhance the clarity by affording truer color and higher contrast. These coatings also offer a higher transmission in the blue range, assuring brighter images and better colors in low light situations.
Because the riflescope does not require raised mounts, the shooter is able to mount the scope very close to the barrel which significantly decreases the degree of deviation of the point of impact of the bullet due to tilting. Accuracy and weight are contributing factors in long-range shooting, and Zeiss combines proven technology and industry innovations when manufacturing the VM/V 6-24x56. A quick focus eyepiece ensures that the reticle and the image you are looking at are in the same plane ensuring a crisp, clear and sharp picture without having to move your eye. Made with thin lens technology, arsenic/lead free glass and housed in an alloy aluminum body, this riflescope is lightweight and offers a clear image even in low light conditions.
The Zeiss VM/V 6-24x56 also contains a scratch-resistant, anodized surface that offers years of protection against rugged use. Guaranteed to be water and dust-proof, the riflescope is subjected to sealing, temperature and shock tests in compliance with the German Environmental Standard DIN 58 390 80. An industry leading lifetime transferable warranty insures the performance and function of the riflescope from generation to generation. As with all Zeiss riflescopes, the VM/V 6-24x56 is filled with nitrogen to ensure that it does not fog in extreme temperature changes. Additionally, a constant eye relief of 3.1" offers a great degree of safety – even when firing upwards - and a full field of view despite the high magnification.
Currently available for a suggested retail price of $1,499.99 with the illuminated model available for a suggested retail price of $1,699.99, the VM/V 6-24x56 delivers unsurpassed quality and performance.
