BSA Optics CO312X40SP overview

  • 1Description

The Contender 3-12x40 Riflescope (Black Matte) from BSA boasts a side parallax adjustment turret with a setting range of 10 yards to infinity. Side parallax adjustment provides compensation for the shooters head movement as it affects the apparent movement of the target relative to the reticle. The BSA Standard Contender reticle, a classic crosshair with unique arrow-head pointers instead of traditional hash marks or dots, is located in the first focal plane. Locating the reticle in the first focal plane allows the size of the pattern to increase as the magnification is increased. A practical 3-12x fast focus zoom combined with the moderately large objective size of 40mm make this scope a first choice for all-around use in variable environments and situations. The BSA Climate Extreme protection delivers o-ring seals for a waterproof tube and a nitrogen-filled tube for internal fogproof dependability. BSA BrightView fully multi-coated lenses provide optimal sharpness and resolution. An objective sunshade, windage and elevation knobs with push/pull zero reset, scalloped turret knobs, a precise ⅛ MOA click value, a 1" tube, a magnification power ring, a fast focus complete this feature packed riflescope.

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.
