The Red Tail Rifle Scope with Mount – The Best Value, Fastest on Target, Locking Caps, & BDC Reticle

The AR-15 is arguably the most versatile weapon system available today.  It is fast, lightweight, and accurate even at long distances.  AT3 Red Tail Riflescopes are the perfect fit on your rifle or PDW to help you accurately engage targets from 25 yards all the way to 600 yards.

You Asked, We Listened! Red Tails with Locking Windage and Elevation Caps

New for 2022, the Red Tails come standard with locking caps for windage and elevation. Keep all the precision of the 1/2 MOA adjustments for the BDC reticle, with the added security of a push-pull lock mechanism. And the clicks are audible and tactile for quick changes in the field.

What is an LPVO and why do you need one?

LPVO stands for Low Powered Variable Optic. LPVO’s are different from traditional rifle scopes (and perfect for AR15’s) because you can use the scope as a red dot replacement at 1x magnification, and still have high magnification to engage targets at distance.  This will give you most of the benefits of a traditional red dot sight (wide field-of-view, both eyes open shooting, better situational awareness, etc.) but also the ability to turn up the magnification and make long-distance shots more accurately.

Best Value in the Industry

Like all AT3 optics, our Red Tail rifle scopes are packed with features and value. Right out of the box, the Red Tail rifle scopes are range and field ready.  Get the the scope of your choice, anodized throw lever, flip-up scope caps, and an optional one-piece aluminum cantilever Picatinny scope mount.  The AT3 Red Tail with the mount is the best value in the LPVO market, but if you have another mount in mind for your, we’ll leave it up to you.

Fast and Accurate

The AT3 Red Tail Rifle Scope’s features true 1x magnification and can be zoomed in to either 4x or 6x at the top end depending on the model.  Use 1x with an illuminated reticle to take the place of your red dot if you need to engage targets up to 100 yards.  Crank up the magnification as your shots get longer.

Make more Accurate Shots

The AT3 Red Tail rifle scopes have a custom-designed and illuminated Bullet Drop Compensation (BDC) reticle.  The reticle has holdovers for shots out to 600 yards using popular .223/5.56 cartridges.  With this reticle, you won’t have to guess where to aim anymore – just use the holdovers and make more accurate shots.

Adjust On-the-Fly

Tactical windage and elevation turrets make adjusting for environmental factors simple and fast for your next shot.  The Red Tail features ½ MOA clicks, and push-pull locking for secure adjustments that won’t spin out in the field.

Love it

Just sighted in this scope & literally 3rd round was a dead center bullseye on my new Sig Tread M400. A few more shots in kept a tight group all within a couple inches at 100yards.
Hitting the range tomorrow to play some more but compared to my more expensive Sig Tango MSR on my Rugar SFAR this scope is very similar & so far performs just as well.

Great review! We're happy to hear that you're enjoying the AT3™ Red Tail™ Rifle Scope with Locking Caps - 1-4x or 1-6x Magnification - 5.56 Illuminated BDC Reticle. Thanks for the positive feedback!

So far... SO good!

Amazing!!

I’ve fallen for AT3! Their scopes and sights are extraordinarily built, durable and accurate! I’ve bought 3 or 4 of their RD50 red dots and now my first Red Tail and they easily hold their own with pricier big name brands. Love that they added the locking turrets! For what I’m getting out of the box I’ll buy AT3 all day.
