BEAVERTON, Ore. — Redfield® introduces the latest model in their line of tactical optics, the Battlezone™ Tac.22™ 2-7x34mm riflescope.
Designed for .22 Long Rifle firearms, the Battlezone Tac.22 comes with two elevation adjustment dials. The first is marked in ¼ MOA increments, and the second is a Bullet Drop Compensation (BDC) dial calibrated to the .22LR, shooting a 36-grain hollowpoint at 1,260 feet per second. The BDC dial is marked from 50 to 150 yards.
The Battlezone Tac.22 features the Tac-MOA™ reticle, which matches the ¼ MOA adjustment dials. Stadia lines on the horizontal and vertical crosshairs are set at two minute of angle increments, allowing for fast windage and bullet drop adjustments as well as range estimation. Parallax is set at a rimfire-friendly 75 yards.
A fully multi-coated lens system delivers excellent brightness, clarity and resolution. The fast-focus eyepiece provides an unmatched field of view, and makes reticle focus fast and easy to maintain in the field. Aggressively knurled, pop-up resettable adjustment dials feature audible clicks that assure precision, repeatability and a wide range of adjustment travel.
Like all Redfield optics, the Battlezone Tac.22 is nitrogen-filled for a lifetime of waterproof, fog proof and shockproof performance.
All Redfield riflescopes are covered by the Redfield “No Excuses™” warranty.
