TALOS 4-16X40 BDC 600 IR

If you ask any hunter they’ll tell they probably have filled more tags in the low-light hours than any other time. With that said, it would be wise to design a scope to excel in early-morning and late-evening light. With the Talos BTR cope with Athlon Advanced multi-coated lenses for clarity and brightness in low light, you’ll be able to add precious minutes to every hunting day that you’ve worked hard for. These scopes, with their 4X magnification range, will give you great versatility whether you are hunting Impala in the grassy southern planes of Limpopo or Jackal in the dense scrub of Northern Natal. With one-piece tube design, the Talos BTR line includes an assortment of specialty scopes for big-game, varmint, MSR’s, 22 rimfire, slug, black powder and guinea fowl hunting.

This  Talos 4-16×40 Model has BDC 600 IR second focal plane illuminated reticle in it.

Fog proof

Fog proof to allow you to immediately engage your target when you take your rifle to cold ambient temperature  from warm inside


Robust mechanical system with special designs on both control and erector system that give you the ultimate recoil resistance to withstand 1000G recoil for 1000 times.
