We've reached the eve of the 146th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, and new product announcements have already started to drop. Among the first bits of news to arrive is the launch of the new Engage riflescope and binocular line from the trusted folks over at Bushnell.

The Engage scopes and binoculars will feature multi-coated glass that's meant to capture bright, clear images while preventing glare and actively repelling water, oil, dust and debris. The new EXO Barrier is being hailed as Bushnell's finest protective lens coating technology. Added at the end of the coating process, EXO Barrier molecularly bonds to the lens and fills microscopic pores in the glass. The result is a slick coating that repels water, oil, fog, dust and debris. Rain, snow, fingerprints and dirt will not stick.

“The Engage line is built to outperform all other comparable scopes and binoculars and completely dominate the elements,” said Curtis Smith Global Product Director for Bushnell. “The only sure thing about any environment is that it will change, but Engage optics were built from the inside out to deliver world-class performance every time, in every condition.”

Engage riflescopes will feature a new look for Bushnell, as well as upgraded features and a new Deploy MOA reticle that offers 1-MOA windage and elevation hashmarks. The riflescopes will be available in nine configurations from 2-7x36mm up to 6-24x50mm, all Engage riflescopes feature Butler Creek Flip Caps, the new Deploy MOA Reticle and Bushnell’s new Ironclad Warranty. Five models feature a 1-inch tube and low-profile, capped elevation and windage turrets. An additional four models boast 30mm tubes and the new Toolless Zero Reset Locking Turrets.

“Engage scopes offer a full suite of the modern features hunters and shooters are looking for,” said Greg Palkowitsh, Riflescope Product Manager. “The Deploy Reticle and Zero Reset Targets give shooters all the confidence they need for mid- to long-range shots.”

MSRPs on the Engage riflescopes range from $149.99 to $449.99.

The Engage binoculars are likewise backed by the company's all-weather assurance of the exclusive EXO Barrier. Four configurations will be offered, from 8x42mm to 12x50mm. ED Prime Glass is meant to ensure sharp images, while PC-3 Phase Coating has been added to enhance resolution and contrast.

“The image is bright, clear and sharp thanks to ED Prime Glass and our dielectric phase-coated prisms,” said Steve Smith, Binocular Product Manager. “But these are rugged binoculars, too. The chassis is built to take a beating, and a locking diopter permanently secures the desired focus setting, so you can maintain focus and quickly engage what's ahead.”

MSRPs on the Engage binoculars range from $349.99 to $409.99.
