Premier Reticles Enters Hunting Market with New Long Range Hunting Scope

Las Vegas, Nev.—January 18, 2011—Today at SHOT Show Booth #5018, Premier Reticles made its foray into the world of hunting and announced the Premier Heritage 3-15x50mm Hunter Scope. Premier Reticles is well-known in the tactical market for making high-quality long-range sniper precision scopes, and is now making a shift into hunting with the introduction of the first big game hunting scope good enough to be called Premier.

Premier Reticles’ first hunting scope owes its pedigree to the same German optical engineering as the sniper scopes the company builds for the United States Marine Corps. Handcrafted in the USA, the Premier Heritage Hunter Scope is precise, well-built and as rugged as they come. And the five-time magnification delivers an uncompromising field-of-view throughout the power range.

“There are high-end hunting scopes available on the market, but none had the Premier name on it,” said Chris Thomas, President of Premier Reticles. “We wanted to change that and come out with something to really raise the benchmark in the industry. We are confident that we’ve lived up to our incredibly high standards and 65 years of optical experience with the introduction of our new Premier Heritage hunting scope.”

From Five Feet to 500 Yards: Premier Reticles’ New Tactical Scope Delivers Revolutionary Precision

Las Vegas, Nev.—January 18, 2011—There’s a new world order for CQB scopes. Today Premier Reticles announced the availability of the first tactical riflescope in the company’s V8 Series: The V8 1.1-8x24mm. This innovative, nimble unit lets shooters toggle between two unique sighting systems in the moment, without altering firing posture in the slightest.

Premier’s illuminated GEN 2 CQB reticle operates from the first focal plane from 3x to 8x. And when the magnification is set at 3x or below, a projected red dot appears. Together, this unique, two-plane sighting system gives shooters precision from five feet to 500 yards.

“The new V8 tactical scope was built based on feedback directly from the field,” said Chris Thomas, President of Premier Reticles. “Having a more versatile tactical scope that could go from long-range to short range, quickly and easily, is a need, and we felt like our experience with custom-sighting options in the tactical world gave us the ability to meet that need. This is an extremely adaptable scope that we know tactical shooters will appreciate.”

The US-built V8 1.1-8x24 is based on a rugged one-piece main tube that is 34mm diameter and constructed from 6061- T6 aircraft aluminum. All internal parts are precision-machined to matching tolerances, providing exacting performance, reliability and movement. All Premier riflescopes come with a fully-transferable lifetime warranty and are backed by more than six decades of customer satisfaction.

The new addition to Premier Reticles’ tactical line of scopes will be available for purchase in September of 2011.
