Product Info

Manufacturer Description

Fully multi-coated optics with fine reticule. Many observers spend hours just looking through this Vixen finder-scope for use as their rich field viewer. With a locking front ring to set focus, this finder-scope is one of the best. Features an illuminated single cross hair and includes CR2032 battery. Field of view: 7°. Bracket and shoe are not supplied.

Please note that many other websites incorrectly state that this # 8616 Vixen finder has a red dot reticle. This is not correct.

      5.0 Texasa Slim




      Aside from the usual Vixen quality (optics and mechanics), this higher-end finder has an illuminated reticle which, unlike cheaper models, does not flare when the brightness is turned up. In addition, the illumination is internal and not provided by a protruding attachment (which frequently gets in the way when in darkness). Quality shows and, in my estimation, is worth the extra expenditure.
