With a 6x magnification, the Strike Eagle 3-18x gives the hunter, target shooter and PRS competitor a wide range of magnification with a lightweight platform and the advanced optics of both MRAD and first focal plane, all in a budget friendly package.
The gap between tactical mid- and long-range shooting is gone. Top off your carbine or DMR rifle with a first focal plane optic that’s versatile, tough, ultra-clear at any magnification, and specifically designed for rapid adjustment in fast-changing target scenarios.
The Strike Eagle 3-18x44mm Riflescope was designed as a lightweight, highly versatile optic that offered more magnification than Vortex’s 1-8 LPVO, to extend the shooter’s effective range, but weighed less than Vortex’s 5-25x56mm for greater mobility. The Strike Eagle in mid-magnification is long-range capable and excels at intermediate to extended range applications, like dynamic target shooting or varmint/predator hunting. The overall design of the Strike Eagle 3-18 is compact at 13" and weighs just 27 ounces for outstanding maneuverability. Like many of Vortex’s optics, the Strike Eagle 3-18x is outfitted with an HD Optical System, which uses a combination of high quality glass and advanced lens coatings to provide an image with crisp edge-to-edge sharpness and high light transmission. To ensure accurate holdovers throughout the entire magnification range, the Strike Eagle 3-18x44mm utilizes a first focal plane reticle. The EBR-7C reticle in this scope is an MRAD configuration. The EBR-7C features an ultra-fine 0.04 MRAD center dot, as well as an abundance of sub-tensions and hash marks allowing the user to determine ranges, make holdovers/windage corrections, and accurately engage moving targets. The reticle is also illuminated for use in low light situations, and the illumination dial is integrated directly into the parallax knob for better ergonomics.
Other features of the Strike Eagle 3-18x44mm include an intuitive turret design. The elevation turret is exposed, and can be pulled up to make quick adjustments in the field, and pushed down to lock it in place. The elevation turret’s RevStop Zero System ensures a fast, reliable return to zero, and a capped windage turret helps cut down on the weight and profile of the scope. The innovative turret design is made even better with the Strike Eagle’s massive 45 MRAD elevation adjustment range and 18 MRAD windage adjustment range thanks to optimized internal components. In addition, the Strike Eagle 3018x44mm ships with included accessories: tethered lens covers, a throw lever, a lens cloth, a CR2032 battery, a 2mm custom tool, a 3” sunshade and a RevStop Zero Ring.
The Strike Eagle intermediate range scope also features a 34mm tube, for universal fit with premium scope rings and mounts. The objective lens, at 44mm makes for a slimline design and less weight, while still getting ample ambient light into the lens for the 18 power magnification at longer distances. The overall 3-18x magnification range is perfect for shooting in the 75 to 900 yard range.
