Riton Optic's First Focal Plane Low Power Variable Optic (LPVO) has arrived, with the unveiling of the 5 Tactix 1-10x24mm. The 6061-T6 aluminum scope boasts clarity and red-dot capabilities with 1x power, paired with precision on 10x power for long-distance shots. A dual-lever throw system allows this magnification to be adjusted smoothly and easily. 

3OT Reticle, zoomed in and zoomed out, with measurements

Capped, zero-resettable windage and elevation turrets provide the option of protected or exposed low-profile turrets based on usage. Precise and audible 1/10 MRAD turrets allow rapid adjustments for those who prefer to dial. For shooters who prefer holdover, the illuminated 3OT Christmas tree reticle provides a quick solution. Protective caps are machined aluminum.

"The 5 Tactix LVPO has been a long time coming and we are thrilled it is finally here," said Jerimiah Alexander, director of product at Riton Optics. "We have spent a lot of time, research, and development creating a riflescope that would excel in any environment and exceed expectations."
