A tactical scope with a mid-range price that exceeds performance expectations
by the Shoot On staff
Scopes represent a key component of any high-performing firearm setup. Of course. Too often, though, big money is dumped into a scope that surpasses the platform it’s attached to or the practical needs of the shooter for that platform. In other words, a vanity scope purchase.
That’s why we tend to hover in the mid-tier scope arena for most of our firearms. It’s a place where optic quality and performance is suitable for the task and the investment is more in line with our limited budgets, leaving coin for other things of equal importance, such as ammunition.
One scope that we’ve recently worked with is the Eminus series from TRUGLO. It’s based on a 30mm tube and is offered in three power and objective configurations: 3-9x42mm, 4-16x44mm, and 6-24x50mm. For longer-range shooting applications with an AR or bolt rifle platform, the latter is a solid choice.
As with any long-range optic, the Eminus includes all the requisite features, starting with an MOA-based reticle with 1 MOA increments across the field of view for windage and elevation compensation. The glass-etched TacPlex Reticle is also illuminated (11 illumination settings) for low-light work. Also included is parallax adjustment from 15 yards to infinity.
The Eminus 6×24 also incudes target turrets with 1/4 MOA increment adjustment. These are one-screw slip-turret caps that allow you to set to zero once the firearm is zeroed. From there, wind drift and BDC is easily adjusted and returned to zero.
Included with the 6×24 model are flip-up caps, a 3-inch sunshade, and a monolithic aluminum cantilever mount for Picatinny rail installation. Should you require direct-to-receiver mounting on a bolt-action rifle, we recommend 30mm Talley rings.
