Good things have been coming out of Bushnell lately, with the Engage series of products being the latest and greatest.
The Bushnell Engage 6-24x50mm riflescope provides high-end features at a mid range price point, delivering a host of features you only expect to find in top-end optics.
The Engage is housed in a hard-anodized aircraft grade 30mm aluminum tube, with a 50mm objective lens. Ample eye relief gives you plenty of mounting options and the easy to rotate magnification ring with the ability to mount a throw stud, provides delineated markings between 6-and 24-power. A side parallax adjustment lets you easily correct POA/POI based upon range and can even be used to help range the scope. The Deploy MOA Reticle on the Engage has incorporated several 1-MOA hash marks for adjustments on the fly.
Locking turrets feature 50 MOA of adjustability and the caps lock so they won’t be accidentally moved. Lift up on the turret cover to turn them and unscrew the top cap to return to zero, without needing tools.
All of the air-to-glass surfaces are coated with Bushnell’s proprietary multi-coating to improve contrast and color clarity. The EXO Barrier molecularly bonds to the glass and makes them resistant to dust, smudges and fingerprints, as well as avoids distortion from water by changing the size and geometry of water droplets. An ultra-wide band coating transmits the full spectrum of light and is customized for every lens in the scope, while reducing glare and keeping the image from appearing washed out in bright light. Both lenses are further protected with Butler Creek flip up covers.
The bottom line - you get great optical performance, no matter the environment. The tube is fully nitrogen purged and O-ring sealed for complete waterproofing and it won’t fog up inside during temperature changes.
These features are found in top-end riflescopes that sell for over a thousand dollars, but the Engage offers these features for less than $450, making the Engage a powerful optic for a great value and an every man price.
All of this is backed up by the Bushnell Ironclad Warranty, providing full protection for the lifetime of the scope, no questions asked and is fully transferable should you sell or gift the scope to someone else.
The Engage 6-24x50mm Engage scope is part of a whole line of Bushnell Engage scopes and binos that includes nine different scope configurations and four different binocular options. Each of the Engage optics uses specialized coatings to maximize performance.
