The Bushnell AR optics lineup is getting a little bigger this year with the addition of two new riflescopes, along with the Accelerate 3x prism sight and the Transition 3x Magnifier.

For 6.5 Creedmoor fans, the Bushnell AR Optics 4.5-18x 40mm scope with Drop Zone 6.5 Creedmoor reticle provides holdover points for shots out to 600 yards. The scope boasts tactical-style target turrets that allow for fast adjustments, and the side parallax focus offers clear target images at any range. The multi-coated optics provide a crisp sight picture and are housed in a 1-inch aluminum tube.
If you’re a MSR shooter who prefers .300 Blackout, meet the 1-4x24mm illuminated scope, which sports a DropZone .300 Blackout Illuminated reticle. The reticle features holdover points calibrated to subsonic and supersonic .300 Blackout ballistics. The first focal plane design of the scope performs like a high-performance red dot at low power, according to the press release. When turned up to 4x magnification, it offers holdover points out to 300 yards, and magnification changes are basically instantaneous thanks to Bushnells ThrowDown power charge lever.
Next up is the Accelerate 4X Prism Scope, which blends the compact stature of a red dot with the 4x magnification of a riflescope. It boasts an illuminated BTR-3 reticle which offers five brightness settings in red and green. The center circle and red dot combine allow for fast acquisition, with drop points for long shots. This mil-based design works with any caliber firearm.
To use the Transition 3X Magnifier, you mount it behind a red dot with the ambidextrous flip mount. Engage it when you need it, and flip it out of the way when you don’t. It works with any red dot and is built with fully multi-coated optics that offer optimal light transmission. It’s also waterproof, fog proof and shock proof.
“With rugged durability, high-quality optics and coatings, and a price any AR rifle owner can afford, these new sights embody the AR Optics line,” Bushnell AR Optics line manager Bryan Parrish said. “And they further expand the AR Optics supremacy within this key category of the firearms market.”
