Bushnell's best AR glass. Now with illumination and 8x magnification.

The Bushnell AR Optic scope series comes with a rugged, high-speed tube and reticle with fast focus, precise MIL adjustments, complete waterproofing, and clear glass in a compact profile. For those of you rocking a long-range .223 or 5.56 setup, the AR Optics Riflescope 1-8x24mm provides that extra distance and accuracy well beyond the usual 300 meters.

Alongside Bushnell's patented throw-down Power Change Lever (PCL) and a bright and easy-to-use .223/5.56 BDC reticle, the AR Optics 8x is a front runner for those wanting small but capable AR-15 glass.

Not convinced? Fine. How about the AR Optics' IPX7 waterproof (submersible) rating? Argon purging and O-ring seals? Machined aluminum housing? Fully multi-coated lenses? Yeah, this scope's ready for whatever abuse you can throw at it, too.
