Advance your shooting skills with AR-15 Scopes from AT3 Tactical
The AR15 can be a great long-distance rifle – the limiting factor is usually your eyes. If you want the ability to shoot targets at long distances, a scope is a must.
Scopes are classified according to two main things: the magnification the scope provides, and the diameter of the objective lens. You will often see the description of a scope include a set of numbers – for example “4×32”.
The first number – 4 – represents the magnification of the scope. In this example, the scope will provide 4X magification vs the naked eye.
The second number – 32 – represents the diameter of the lens at the front of the scope, in millimeters. In this example, the objective lens is 32mm in diameter.
