Vortex Scope Cut-Away

Saw this at the Vortex booth during the 2019 NRA show. And I have to tell you, it was amazing!

Scott Terhall spent about 20 minutes going over the particulars of their scope construction and assembly processes with myself and our PhD Engineer. 

At some point during the conversation, I’m lost! So they went down the rabbit hole as engineers are prone to do! 

In the meantime, take a look at all the parts that go into a single scope. The gimbal. The eye-lens. Even the reticle! 

I’ve never held a reticle in my hand until that moment! And the only way I can describe that feeling is like this: try to imagine some kind of all seeing, all knowing, mythical specter that only appears in one very specific place. 

And having that specter suddenly sitting in your hand as a physical, tactical object, while 30 people look on? Seriously. 

Think about it. When was the last time you ACTUALLY looked at a reticle and it wasn’t a single, solitary experience? 

I’ll say it again. This was amazing!
