For over twenty years, Simmons has cultivated a reputation as a leader in offering the true outdoorsman great binoculars, riflescopes and other sport optics products.
The ProSport 4-12x40 A/O Riflescope features the TrueZero erector system for enhanced repeatability, and fully coated optics for a clear and crisp sight picture - even when it's raining.
This ProSport's 4-12x magnification range is a notch up from the age-old standby of 3-9x - sometimes a little more power makes all the difference in the world - just ask any varmint hunter. The front bell of this optic is a mid-sized 40mm - and it's adjustable for parallax correction.
The Quick Target Acquisition eyepiece affords the shooter peace of mind - dialing across the entire power-range has no effect upon the eye relief. A consistent cheek-weld is a key component of accurate shot-placement, and a constant eye relief simplifies that process tremendously.
A mounting base and rings are used to attach a riflescope to a firearm. A comfortable sight picture is contingent upon the height of the rings. A comfortable cheek-weld is the result of properly positioning the scope over the receiver. Mounting the scope close to the receiver is preferable, yet scopes with larger objectives need higher rings so the front bell can clear the barrel. It should be noted that in many mounting applications, a professional gunsmith's skills will be needed for proper installation.
