Check Out the Latest Leica Sport Optics at NRA Annual Meetings

 

Leica Sport Optics invites you to stop by booth #3811 during the NRA 2013 Annual Meeting & Exhibits to see and handle some of its newest products. Leica is officially unveiling the new Leica ER i riflescope models during the NRA event to be held in Houston, Tex., May 3-5 2013. Get a close-up look at the ER i 2.5-10×42 and the ER i 3-12×50 riflescopes, as well as the new Geovid HD-B laser rangefinder binoculars.

Boasting a lean and classic design, the two models feature Leica’s legendary optical performance and the addition of an illuminated red dot, available in three reticle configurations: 4a, Ballistic and IBS.

The ER i features a large and ergonomically designed setting dial on the left side of the riflescope, so even a gloved hunter can easily activate and adjust the illuminated dot on the reticle. Nine brightness settings, as well as clearly defined “On/Off” positions, guarantee a clear and distinct view, even during low-light hours when game animals are most active.

Leica’s sophisticated, energy-saving system ensures maximum battery conservation. On the brightest setting, the battery lifetime in continuous mode is more than 40 hours and more than 210 hours on the intermediate setting. Plus, with Leica’s intelligent “Auto On/Off” function, the illumination will turn off when not in a regular shooting position or when left on unintentionally, providing even longer battery life.

You also won’t want to miss the opportunity to examine the Geovid-HD B. This new laser rangefinder binocular contains advanced ballistics technology enabling users to add/create their own custom ballistics info for their specific firearm as well as class-leading ranging abilities.

The newly developed ballistic function ABC™ (Advanced Ballistic Compensation) provides the proper aim point for the hunter and shooter. The Geovid HD-B’s integrated, highly precise ballistic processor can instantly gather and analyze the ballistic information with one touch of the button, giving accurate information for the correct hold over, turret adjustment or drop down reticle aiming point. When calculating the trajectory, the distance, angle, temperature and air pressure are all taken into account.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to review the latest in Leica new products and innovations. They’ll be plenty of Leica representatives on-hand to answer your questions regarding the impressive new products.

Leica Sport Optics Introduces the ER i Riflescope

 

Leica Sport Optics adds to its already successful line of ER riflescopes with the introduction of two new illuminated riflescope models: the ER i 2.5-10×42 and the ER i 3-12×50. These new riflescopes boast a lean and classic design making them simple and easy-to-use. They also feature Leica’s legendary optical performance and the addition of an illuminated red dot, available in three reticle configurations: 4a, Ballistic and IBS.

ER i 3-12×50
Understanding the nature of the hunt, Leica Sport Optics designed the ER i riflescope to perform reliably, regardless of weather or terrain. The ER i features a large and ergonomically-designed setting dial on the left side of the riflescope, so even a gloved hunter can easily activate and adjust the illuminated dot on the reticle. Nine brightness settings, as well as clearly defined “On/Off” positions, guarantee a clear and distinct view, even during low-light hours when game animals are most active.

Backcountry hunters need not worry about the scope’s battery life. Leica’s sophisticated, energy-saving system ensures maximum battery conservation. On the brightest setting, the battery lifetime in continuous mode is more than 40 hours and more than 210 hours on the intermediate setting. Plus, with Leica’s intelligent “Auto On/Off” function, the illumination will turn off when not in a regular shooting position or when left on unintentionally, providing even longer battery life.

ER i 2.5-10×42
With the new Leica ER i riflescope, hunters get the quality they expect from a a premium Leica product. Among its impressive optical qualities, the scope boasts extraordinary contrast, low vignetting, generous field of view and extraordinary light transmission. Like other scopes in the ER line, the ER i provides 4 inches of eye relief, which gives an extra dose of safety when shooting lightweight, big-bore rifles. The scope’s design enables reliable observation and ethical shooting until the last available light.

The ER i riflescope line embodies all the advantages of the proven ER mechanical design: substantial dimensioned tube wall thickness, the tightest production tolerances and Finite Elements Method (FEM) optimized geometric shapes, leading to a superbly reliable product. The generous mounting area and lean, classical lines guarantee perfect mounting and a stylish look for this true performer.

The ER i comes available with three illuminated reticles.

Reticle 4a: Classical hunting reticle
Reticle Ballistic: Ballistic reticle with stadia lines for long-range shots
Reticle IBS: MOA based ballistic reticle with stadia lines and hash marks
Also, a new, patented bullet drop compensator (BDC) turret is now available for ER i scopes. When equipped with the BDC, the ER i gains a whole new level of long-range capability.

Leica is now offering two different mounting systems: the “tried and proven” rail mounting system popular with European firearms, and the traditional “ring and base” system.

Prices for the ER i riflescopes range from $1,599 to $2,349 depending on model, reticle, and mounting system.

Leica Introduces Integrated Ballistics System (IBS) for ER Riflescopes

Leica‘s optical experts have joined forces with G7′s ballistics experts to develop the Integrated Ballistic System (IBS ) reticle. This multi-purpose reticle allows the hunter to use the ballistic drop reticle or the center aiming point in conjunction with a custom ballistic turret that has been calibrated in yards.

The hold-over aiming points provide the shooter with aim points out to approximately 500 yards, depending on the cartridge and bullet used. The reticle’s windage hash marks assist the shooter in compensating for the wind.

The G-7-powered IBS Ballistic Calculator lets the shooter calculate and print out the distance for each hold-over dot or hash mark for his or her rifle and cartridge. The shooter enters the ballistic information of the cartridge into the calculator, or the factory cartridge specifications are selected; then the user can print a field-carry hold-over chart for that specific load.

A custom ballistic turret, which can be ordered from G7, allows the shooter to adjust the vertical turret to match the distance to the target, then hold right on to complete the shot.

The new IBS System provides shooters with maximum flexibility and ease of use for ultimate in long-range performance, whether using a bullet-drop compensating turret or reticle. The IBS reticle will be available in both Leica’s 2.5-10×42 and 3.5-14×42 ER riflescope models either with or without target turrets (elevation only).
