The Bushnell 3-12x42 Engage Riflescope combines reliable optics with a versatile reticle and turret system to produce a scope suited for mid- to long-range shooting and hunting from dawn to dusk.

The reticle, located on the second focal plane, is a simple yet effective traditional crosshair design with a series of hashmarks and stadia lines that allow you to improve your shot placement without having to touch your turrets. When you do need to make manual adjustments, the exposed turrets provide precise 1/4 MOA per click impact point correction with a wide 50 MOA adjustment range on both the windage and elevation at 15 MOA per turret rotation. Each turret is lockable to prevent accidental movement with tool-less zero reset.

To withstand the repeated recoil of regular use and to provide the adjustment room required for the windage and elevation turrets, the one-piece maintube is made of lightweight but strong aluminum and is robust at 30mm in diameter. The housing is sealed to an IPX7 rating for waterproof performance in the most adverse weather, so the scope will keep working in the most extreme conditions.

Optical Performance
  • Broad 3-12x zoom range is ideal for precise mid- to long-range hunting and shooting
  • 42mm objective balances size with light gathering ability, allowing its use in challenging light without being overweight
  • Index-matched broadband anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics are specifically engineered to match each lens element to further improve light transmission, contrast, and color fidelity across the entire visible spectrum
  • Proprietary EXO exterior lens coatings resist external fogging, scratches, and abrasions while allowing oil, dirt, and sap to be cleaned off without leaving smudges or residue
  • 30-foot field of view at 100 yards on 3x, 6-foot on 12x
MOA Deploy Reticle Details
  • Second focal plane placement: Reticle appearance won't change as magnification moves power up and down, it appears the same at all power settings
  • Subtensions are accurate at 12x power and need to be adjusted at other magnifications
  • Modified version of the traditional crosshair design, presenting a clear and unobstructed view on the upper half
  • Crosshairs are easy to see without obstructing the target picture
  • Stadia lines at every 1 MOA for accurate elevation holdover
  • Wider hashmarks every 5 MOA eliminate the need to count lines
  • Hashmarks below zero are 2 MOA wide to aid in accurate windage holds
  • Five indicators at 1 MOA spacing on upper vertical crosshair
  • Not caliber specific
