You just bought a new rifle and you want to kit it out with the best optic you can afford. But it’s taken a long time to save your cash and you really don’t want to make a mistake buying a scope that’s isn’t exactly right for you. That’s where Vulcan Circle comes in, a new subscription service that sends you high-end scopes, red dots and reflex sights to try for three months at a time.
Think of it as Netflix for your rifle. You’ve had your eye on a Zeiss 5-30×50 Conquest V6 for your Ruger Precision Rifle, but $1900 is a lot of samolians. You want to be sure before you buy. You’re also thinking that a Leupold LCO would be the perfect sight for your Daniel Defense DDM4. But you’ve never tried one yourself and don’t want to regret writing that $600 check.
Or maybe you’d love to top your Nosler Model 48 with a first-rate optic — something like the Steiner 3-15×50-T5Xi — for an upcoming hunt. But you don’t want to buy one, you just want to use one for your trip.
Vulcan Circle lets you try before you buy, offering various membership options to give you access to different optics depending on how many and how long you’d like to use them. Here’s their press release . . .
Vulcan Circle Launches All-New Optics Subscription Service
Vulcan Circle, which officially launched this month, has sought to revolutionize today’s shooting sports market by offering an optics-rotation subscription service.
“We have found many firearm enthusiasts, including ourselves, purchase an optic that took months of savings, to then find the ‘next best thing’ just hit the shelves,” says John Luke Tippetts, President of Vulcan Circle. Tippetts hopes to eliminate this feeling by allowing members of Vulcan Circle to receive and use high-end optics from brands like Vortex, Leupold, and Swarvoski and send them back to receive a new item every 3 months.
Sign-up is simple with plans starting at only $45 per month for their Legionary Armory, which includes optics like the Aimpoint T2, Trijicon ACOG, and more. Vulcan Circle also offers a step up from their Legionary Armory, the Centurion Armory. This plan includes optics like the Elcan Specter, all optics found within the Legionary Armory, and more. The final plan, the Tribune Armory, is the highest level offered by the company and includes optics from Tangent Theta, U.S. Optics, all optics found within the Legionary and Centurion Armories, and more.
As interest in the shooting sports continues to grow, Vulcan Circle seeks to help those new to the idea familiarize themselves with optics and determine their needs. “Instead of purchasing the optic up-front, members have unprecedented access to the most advanced firearm optics on the market,” says Tippetts. He goes on to say, “Even better, members can exchange optics every 3 months to experience something else.”
Vulcan Circle also offers a point-based rewards program for its members. The “Vulcan Honors” program allows members to redeem points which are accrued every month for products like tents, binos, rangefinders, YETI coolers, and more. Members are rewarded with points for continued membership and for returning optics on time and in good condition.
“We really wanted to spice things up, so we searched hard and found a quality often underemphasized in this industry. That quality is exclusivity,” says Tippetts. “As a member, our goal is to create an enriching experience through a “club-like” atmosphere never seen before in respect to the commerce of firearm accessories. From our recurring giveaways to our Vulcan Honors program, our goal is to provide you access to experiences often found unattainable.”
