New Aztec Emerald 5.5 – 25 x 50 Scope Available Now
A new name in the airgun optics arena is Aztec Optics. Their first product is the Aztec Emerald 5.5 – 25 x 50 scope.
This new scope offers the very wide zoom range from 5.5 to 25 X with a 50mm objective lens and 30mm tube diameter. This covers just about all of the possible magnification requirements for the vast majority of airgunners.
The Aztec Emerald 5.5 – 25 x 50 scope has side parallax adjustment for focusing down to 10 yards. The included “big wheel” is, of course, what is required by every Field Target shooter.
The turrets are click-adjustable at 1/4 MOA and the reticle is said by the manufacturer to have been specifically designed for airgun use. The graduations and overall design of the DYND-1 reticle in the Aztec Emerald 5.5 – 25 x 50 Scope certainly make it clear that this is the case.
The Field of View is said to vary between 19.1 and 4.2 Yards at 100 Feet (33.3 Yards, a very typical airgun scope sighting distance). Of course, this will be dependent on magnification, with the widest Field of View at the lowest – 5.5 X magnification.
Eye relief is competitive, too, at between 3.94 and 3.54 Inches. Again, this will vary in the Aztec Emerald 5.5 – 25 x 50 scope – as with any other scope – depending on the magnification selected, with the shorter eye relief at the highest magnification setting.
This is a fairly large scope at 14.375-inches long and 25.4 Ounces. But it looks as if it will balance well on the majority of PCP air rifles, for which it was undoubtedly designed.
