What’s the difference of quality between your Mod 5 and Mod 7 line?
The difference is the Mod 7 line has higher zoom power, different reticles, larger tube size, better turrets, and argon purging instead of nitrogen purging.
What is your Mod 3 line optimized for?
Our Mod 3 line is a high-quality optic with a great price point that is optimized for a standard AR platform in a .223 or 5.56 caliber. The Mod 3 2-7×32 specifically has a Bullet Drop Compensated (BDC) reticle for a .22 long rifle.
Do you offer a Horus reticle?
We do not currently offer a Horus reticle.
Our Riton scopes rated for air guns?
Do you have zero stop turrets?
Our newest product, the Mod 7 4-32×56 has zero stop turrets. This scope will be available soon.
What scopes are compatible with your throw levers?
Our throw levers are compatible with our Mod 1’s, Mod 3 GEN2’s, and Mod 5 GEN2’s.
What scopes come with a Sun Shade?
Our Mod 7 4-20×50 and Mod 7 5-25×56 come with a sun shade. Our sun shades will fit the Mod 5 4-16x50FOV, Mod 3 6-24×50 and Mod 5 6-24x50IR.
Can I purchase a sun shade on it’s own?
Yes. We sell them for $29.99. Take a look at the product page: https://www.ritonoptics.com/product-category/accessories/sunshade/
What is the minimum range that your parallax adjustable scopes can focus?
It depends on the scope, but most of our models start at 10.
How do your scopes perform in low light?
This is where our scopes shine. Because we use high quality HD Japanese glass in all of our optics, we average 99.5% light transmission so you’ll be able to see better through our scopes in low light than you can with your naked eye.
What scopes do you have in First Focal Plane (FFP)?
Our Mod 5 6-24x50IR, Mod 7 5-25x56IR and Mod 7 1-8x28IR-T.
Are the Riton reticles etched?
Yes, all Riton reticles are etched.
What torque specs do you have for your rings and bases?
Riton recommends 18 in/lbs for our rings. Our base nuts can be tightened to 45 in/lbs.
Can I change the Reticle in my scope?
This is not currently a service Riton Optics offers.
What type of glass do you have in your optics?
Currently, there are no American manufacturers that can supply enough high quality, HD lenses to support our needs. Thus, we source all of our glass for each and every optic from Japan. You can expect high quality HD (High Density) glass in every optic.
The source of the base material is not nearly as important as the optical design. Our glass is so much clearer due to our proprietary lens coatings, how we engineer the prescription of the lenses, and the construction of the optic itself.
Where is your final assembly?
All of our optics have hand sourced Japanese glass and are final assembled in Japan or China depending on price point. We source all of our raw materials and use oversees assembly based on price point.
What is the difference between First Focal Plane (FFP) and Second Focal Plane (SFP)?
First focal plane scopes have the reticle installed towards the front of the erector tube or forward of the magnification lenses. When the magnification is increased, the reticle increases in size along with the image you are looking at. The advantage to this FFP is the reticle subtentions stay the same through any magnification.
With an SFP reticle, the spacing for holdover in the reticle is only correct at one magnification, usually the highest setting. If the scope’s magnification is set lower, the size of the reticle relative to the target changes and the increments of the spacing will change.
What is parallax?
Parallax describes a situation where the focal plane of the object in the scope is offset from the reticle. If you have parallax, you have an optical illusion that must be corrected. Parallax should not be confused with focus. Parallax compensation changes neither the focus of the reticle nor the focus of the image; it simply moves the planes at which these two objects are in focus so that they share the same plane.
