Bushnell Hunting Rifle Scopes
For over 70 years Bushnell has been lauded by hunters as one of the finest producers of scopes and other optics equipment. Founded in 1948 by David P. Bushnell, the company got its start by marketing affordable binoculars to middle-class hunters. In this comprehensive collection you’ll find a wide variety of optics products custom designed by hunting experts.What is the Bushnell Trophy XLT?
Featuring a class-leading 91% light transmission and an ultra-durable one-piece tube, the Bushnell Trophy XLT is a well-known riflescope line in the American market. Featuring offerings such as the 3-9x 40mm Bone Collector and the tiny Trophy 1.75-4x 32mm, this line’s crowning achievement is the DOA 600 which can land centerfire shots at distances up to 600 yards.How do you install a riflescope?
To begin, make sure that both of your bases are mounted securely the correct distance apart. Then, install the rings that will support your riflescope. A section of dowel can be used to pivot a dovetail into position. After double-checking your ring fit and alignment, position and install your scope. The last step is to view down the reticle or use a bore-sighter to fine-tune your zero.
- Install scope bases
- Mount scope rings on bases
- Align and fit scope rings
- Position and install scope
- Bore-sight to align reticle
While in most cases riflescopes and air rifle scopes are two very different things, many Bushnell products are compatible with both air rifles and traditional firearms. This isn't the case for all Bushnell rifle scopes, however. Most high-end Bushnell Elite products double as air rifle scopes, but many of the lower-end options don't. Make sure that the item for sale is designated as an air rifle scope before purchasing.Where are Bushnell products made?
Bushnell Outdoor Products, a proud American company, is headquartered in Overland Park, Kansas. As a subsidiary of Vista Outdoor, this company was previously sold to Bausch & Lomb in 1971 and has acquired various subsidiaries and changed hands more than a few times before ending up with its current ownership. This American employer provides jobs to over 1,000 people and their products are distributed worldwide.What other optics equipment is available from Bushnell?
While perhaps more commonly known for their riflescopes, Bushnell also produces a number of other tactical products for the great outdoors, including binoculars, spotting scopes, and trail cameras. An innovation that no hunter should be without, trail cameras give you the drop on game even when you’re miles away. Laser rangefinders allow you to accurately judge your distance from a target before you ever set your eye behind a reticle.
