The Leupold Prismatic series of rifle scopes combines the precision optics of Leupold's much-heralded rifle scopes with the short-range dependability of a red dot sight. Unlike many other Leupold rifle scopes, scopes in the Prismatic series don't feature long magnification ranges and large objective lenses. Instead, Leupold Prismatic riflescopes are closer to red dot sights than they are to a traditional riflescope, but they still provide excellent target acquisition and accuracy. Unlike other red dots, these Leupold red dot scopes utilize an etched glass reticle that's visible whether or not there's batteries in the scope. A removable Illumination Module makes the rifle scope reticle easier to see in low light, but even without the module the reticle is visible at all times, giving you the speed and accuracy of a red dot scope without having to depend on batteries. More and more rifle scopes are being built with lower power for a traditional feel but a more modern design and performance. Of course, it's only these Prismatic Scopes that have Leupold's name behind them, and as one of the world's most popular brands, it's not hard to see why these scopes are popular. Leupold manufactures the Prismatic in a number of different forms, including a Hunting edition, a Tactical edition, and an NWTF edition, all with 1x magnification. These low-profile, high visibility scopes are ideal in lots of different tactical situations. To add precise accuracy to your shotgun, muzzleloader, or short-range firearm, mount a low-profile Leupold Prismatic scope to your weapon of choice.
