posted on February 13, 2019

Bushnell introduced three new lines of optics at the 2018 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits, and continues to build its premium Forge line with its new 15X56mm Koening Prism binocular.

The Forge line offers the best of all worlds for optic enthusiasts, with ED prime glass, special prism coatings for enhanced resolution and contrast and the company’s Ultra Wide Bandanti-reflection coating. The EXO barrier makes the Forge 15X56mm binocular fogproofand waterproof but also prevents smudges and debris, including oil and dust, from sticking to the glass.

The Forge 15X56mm weighs 51 ounces and has an overall length of 8.9. The unit has a field-of-view of 235 feet at 1,000 yards, with an exit pupil of 3.7mm. This binocular is made for picking apart large tracts of habitat to find an ear, antler or throat patch to make you successful, and is ideal for a westernhuntlike Coues deer, or mountain hunting for sheep or goat.

The new Bushnell Forge 15X56mm binocular has an MSRP of $799.99. For more information, visit
