New MTC Optics King Cobra 4-16 x 50 F2 Scope
UK-based MTC Optics has announced a new King Cobra 4-16 x 50 F2 riflescope. The company is positioning this model as ideal for airgun use in hunting, field target competition and informal target shooting.
As usual with MTC scopes, the King Cobra 4-16 x 50 F2 features MTC’s etched-glass SCB2 multi-aimpoint reticle. Located in the second focal plane (SFP), it ensures plenty of aimpoints to counter trajectory and windage deviation without obscuring the target.
MTC says that the 1 mil dot square around the cross is designed to give rapid acquisition for small, fast-moving targets such as rats and squirrels.
This is combined with click-stop adjustment in MILs (1 click =1cm at 100m), actuated via lockable, finger-adjustable elevation and windage turrets. The turrets have 60 clicks per revolution. This allows a maximum adjustment capability of 140 cm (55 Inches) at 100 Meters (109 Yards).
The centre of the reticle can be illuminated red, to one of six brightness levels to suit any lighting scenario. There’s separate on/off and brightness controls.
The King Cobra F2 scope has a 30mm tube diameter, together with a 50mm objective lens. Minimum focusing distance is 10 meters (11 Yards) with parallax adjustment by rotating the left turret. A large diameter sidewheel is available as an accessory – as is a long objective sunshade.
In common with many other MTC Optics models, the King Cobra 4-16×50 F2 comes complete with a set of magnetic flip covers. The rear one contains a 2x magnifier to help shooters read the parallax and turret verniers. This can be a very useful feature for those of us with eyes that are not so young and adaptable as they once were!
This new F2 scope is just over 14 Inches long and weighs 26.5 Ounces.
It’s shipping in the UK right now and should be available for US customers soon through Airguns of Arizona and Precision Airgun Distribution dealers.
