Daten, Fakten & Informationen

Sighting devices on hunting rifles are becoming more and more advanced over time. While a few decades ago hunters mostly used open sights - so-called shooting via "rear sight and front sight", today there are various forms of aiming aids - mostly in the form of telescopic sights or red dot sights. Thus, over time, special types of these aiming aids and scopes for different types of hunting have emerged. Three types stand out in particular.

The classic: The typical and probably most commonly used riflescope is the gladly so-called "all-round glass". It is a solid rifle scope, which usually has a lens diameter of 56mm and a magnification range of 3-12 or 3-15 or 1,5-15. These scopes are also often referred to by the combination of these values - i.e.: 3-12 x 56. A dimmable illuminated dot in the center of the reticle has also become standard. This glass is an absolutely popular choice, especially with young hunters, as it can be used for stalking and raised hide hunting, as well as for twilight and night hunting with the moon. For this purpose, it can now often even be combined with a pre or post sight. Furthermore, it can also be used on movement hunts such as driven hunts. A true all-round riflescope.

The driven hunt scope: In order to perform well on movement hunts while keeping the overall weight of the rifle low and the level of balance high, many shooters - especially more experienced shooters - like to use a so-called driven hunt glass on movement hunts. These driven hunt binoculars usually have objective lens diameters between 22 and 42mm and a magnification range in the lower single digits (popular sizes are: 1-4x42, 2-6x36, 2-4x32, etc.). With these features, the scope should favor being able to cleanly stretch elusive game at short distances.

The red dot: The red dot sight, often simply called red dot, represents the absolute movement hunting glass. It usually consists of an optic with 1 to a maximum of 3 times magnification and shows only one (usually red glowing) dot in the reticle. It is also very popular in tactical shooting and sport shooting.

The prices of rifle scopes vary greatly depending on the manufacturer and model. For beginners, there are all-round scopes starting at about 350-500€. The professionals prefer to fall back on brand quality and this has its price. 2000€ - 4000€ is the range that covers most high-quality branded riflescopes. In some cases you can spend even more for your optics. The price depends heavily on the requirements one has for his scope. These requirements, in turn, are based on one's personal pursuit of hunting. How often do you hunt? When do you hunt?

Especially online, you can get a good idea of the scopes on the market by comparing prices. Gunfinder is here to help you find the right scope for you. To do this, it is important that you pay close attention to your needs and thus also to the essential characteristics of the rifle scope in terms of mechanics, construction, image quality and magnification.

In hunter's language, the so-called "reticle" refers to the crosshairs of an optical system. Over time, the reticles of rifle scopes have also evolved greatly. While there used to be only a handful of reticles, nowadays a wide variety of hunting optics are available with a wide variety of crosshairs. In addition to the type of reticle, which is often designated with a number (e.g. reticle No.4), modern rifle scopes also have a dimmable illuminated dot as standard. As mentioned above, red dot sights, which only have the illuminated red dot as an indicator in the optics, are very popular, especially for driven hunts. The reticle should also be chosen according to the type of hunting.

Light transmission (transmittance)is the ability of optical glass or optical systems to "let through" as many light rays as possible.

In a good or fast riflescope, the light transmission should be more than 90 percent.
The transmission performance or transmission loss of optical devices, such as binoculars, riflescopes, etc., depends heavily on the optical coating of the lenses.
Another important factor for the level of transmission loss, e.g. of binoculars, is the type of lens used.


Basically, however, it can be stated that a riflescope works better in twilight if it has a higher lens diameter, since the light transmission generally increases proportionally to the lens diameter.

There are various mounting systems for rifle scopes and other hunting optics. Among the best known and most popular mounting types for rifle scopes are the EAW swivel mount, the Picatinny rail, the single-hook mount, the ring mount and the Hexalock mount. The mount types sometimes differ greatly in terms of their modularity, area of application, and also price.

Before you purchase a scope for a new or used gun, you should consider how you want to mount it on the gun and whether the two parts are compatible. Especially with used guns, you should pay attention to which base is already available for which mount. Even by gun manufacturer, the type of mount used varies, sometimes greatly.

The field of view of a binocular or riflescope is given either in degrees (angle of view) or in meters. The size of the field of view indicates the width of terrain that can be observed through the binoculars at a distance of 1000 meters.

In contrast, for riflescopes, the field of view is usually given for distances of 100 meters.

Binoculars without a wide-angle function have fields of view of up to 130 meters. A larger field of view makes it easier to observe large objects and to track moving objects. With increasing magnification, the field of view generally decreases for any optic, which also depends on the design of the optical system.

It happens time and again that even suppliers of inexpensive entry-level products make generous claims regarding the field of view, which hardly differ from those of the significantly more expensive brand-name products. It should be noted that this information is not necessarily incorrect, but the larger field of view is achieved at the expense of reduced edge sharpness. Other suppliers, on the other hand, advertise optimum edge sharpness, but conceal the fact that this was achieved by reducing the field of view.

As mentioned above, there are many different rifle scopes from many different manufacturers that serve many different hunting needs. We would like to introduce you to a few brands below.

ZeissSince 1904, ZEISS has been a pioneer in the field of rifle scopes for hunting rifles. It secured this leading position through a multitude of innovations and an extremely high standard of quality. Milestones include the two hunting riflescopes with variable magnifications from 1922: the Zielmulti, or aiming mulitlar - and the Zielmacht, the first riflescope to combine high magnification with maximum twilight performance.

SvarowskiSwarovski Optik is without question one of the best-known manufacturers of high-quality rifle scopes and has enjoyed great popularity among hunters for many years. Swarovski rifle scopes all have one thing in common - the combination of state-of-the-art precision technology with robust construction and elegant design. Adverse conditions such as poor lighting, extreme temperatures or simply long distances are not an obstacle for the developers and designers of Swarovski rifle scopes, but an incentive to always make the perfect shot possible even in these situations. Flexible ballistic turrets, Swarolight and Flexchange are just a few examples of the technical innovations with which Swarovski continues to perfect its rifle scopes.

BlaserWorld-renowned and respected as a gun manufacturer, Blaser is now also trying its hand at rifle scopes and is not doing badly either. Blaser's credo here: "Only in conjunction with first-class riflescope optics can the hunter reliably utilize the performance of his rifle. It is therefore all the more important that the function and operation of the optics are perfectly geared to hunting practice. If, in addition, the design of the riflescope is matched to the rifle, the result is a combination of unique elegance and performance. "

A riflescope, especially one that fits your gun and needs, can be purchased very easily on the internet, or from the gunsmith you trust. Whereas the gunsmith usually offers the advantage of an assembly of the optics on site, you have the possibility on the Internet to compare different scopes and target optics according to different categories.

Of course, you can surf on the pages of the gun dealers for your suitable scope, or also - especially in the case of the acquisition of a used gun - search on the common portals on which used weapons are advertised.

But you can also be clever and use Gunfinder offers you the great advantage that you can make your comparison with a large number of category options at your discretion. Furthermore, Gunfinder searches all of the above-mentioned common portals for you and compiles the best results in an overview.

A good quality rifle scope is the key to success, whether shooting at the range or hunting. Scopes bring targets and objects in the environment closer to the hunter or sports shooter, allowing for better and more accurate marksmanship.

Through their lenses, rifle scopes collect and use available light. This makes it possible to shoot even in low-light conditions. As a result, with the right glass, the hunter can hunt effortlessly and be successful even at dawn or dusk.
