Product Description

The GLx rifle scopes redefine what can be accomplished when the latest optics technology is applied to meet the shooting challenges faced in real world situations. New for this line is our enhanced locking turrets with return to zero, AutoLive motion sensing reticle illumination, and our hardened steel-on-steel adjustment system. The fantastically clear, low dispersion glass makes sure the optical system will impress even the harshest critics.

The GLx 4-16x50mm rifle scope has a 4-16x magnification range, offering a massive field of view excellent for scanning and tracking movement, but improved medium-to-long range precision as well. For hunting, competition, or even just punching paper at the range, the combination of quality, features, and of course our Advanced Combined Sighting System (ACSS®) reticles is hard to beat.

This GLx 4-16x50mm rifle scope features our newly designed turrets, offering not just a new look but a host of incredible new features! Each movement of the turret will provide a crisp, audible, and tactile 0.1 MIL click that will never wear out thanks to the tough steel-on-steel construction! Externally, these locking turrets feature a high speed return to zero, ensuring that once your zero is set you won’t have to worry about bumps or the environment making unintended changes to your turrets. The return to zero feature allows shooters to rapidly return to their elevation to ‘Zero’ after dialing out for long-range engagements without having to keep track of the adjustments you made to get out there in the first place. Not sure where you left your elevation the last time you were at the range? Not only can you simply return your scope to your set Zero, the elevation turret features elevation rotation indicators to get you back on track at a glance.

The GLx is also home to one of our newest features. Our smooth magnification ring hosts an innovative swappable adjustment fin. The fin can be easily positioned anywhere around the magnification ring to meet the needs of the shooter. Optional upgrades and alternatives are on the way as well, allowing users to customize their scope to meet their needs.

This 4-16x50mm GLx scope is equipped with the first focal plane ACSS® Apollo 6.5CM/.224V reticle. Simply sight in at 100 yards and you are ready to engage at any range out to 1,000 yards with crosswinds up to 20 mph, all without requiring any math or touching a single turret. Combine the built-in range estimation and hold overs with an infinitely precise chevron tip aiming point and .2 MIL crosshair subtensions, and you have a firing solution at any distance. The reticle has been tuned and optimized for 6.5 Creedmoor and .224 Valkyrie.
