  • riflescope

A small erect-image telescope for use as a sighting device on a rifle. The chief requirement is a long eye relief to avoid damage to the eye due to recoil. The power may lie anywhere between 1 and 16x. The reticle can be moved vertically for range and horizontally to compensate for a cross-wind.
