The 3-9x40 Point Black Riflescope (Black Matte) from Barska features bullet-drop technology specifically designed for .223 caliber shooting. The scope's elevation turret is calculated to compensate for the elliptical drop of the .223 with either a 50, 55 or 62 grain bullet. A multi-grain bullet drop compensation chart (B.D.C) is engraved on the elevation turret. The Point Black riflescope can be combined with varmint rifles, bolt action rifles, semiautomatic rifles, AR-15 / M-16 assault rifles, Mini-14, ranch rifles and any of the large selection of firearms that chamber the high velocity .223 bullet.
The Point Black has a black matte finish, a 1" single-tube construction, is provisioned with an illuminated, user-selectable green, blue or red 3G glass etched reticle and a fast focus eyebell. It boasts a generous 3.9 inches of eye relief. The click value adjustment of the windage and elevation turrets is ¼ MOA. Barska's proprietary Accu-Lock technology locks the inner tube of the scope providing continuous accuracy over time. Fully multicoated optics for brighter viewing, an adjustable side parallax correction turret, easy-grip target-style windage and elevation turrets and flip-up scope caps make this riflescope offering a plethora of features at a very acceptable price. And it is backed by Barska's Limited Lifetime Warranty.
To use a riflescope with your firearm, you'll need a mounting base and mounting rings in addition to the scope itself. Bases attach to your firearm and the rings attach your scope to the base. Proper spacing of the rings, as well as the ring height should be considered to ensure that a proper line of sight can be established. This will maximize the value of your investment, and enhance your shooting experience. It should be noted that in many mounting applications, a professional gunsmith's skills will be needed for proper installation.
