The popular Bushnell AR Optics series just got a little bigger thanks to the addition of new riflescopes and red dots.

On the riflescope end of things are new models tailed to work with .22 LR, .223/5.56, .308 Win., .300 BLK, 6.5 Creedmoor and .224 Valkyrie rifles. These scopes boast fully multi-coated optics, as well as custom BDC reticles for precise elevation holds. Two of the models feature illuminated reticles. Four boast 30mm tubes. The new additions bring the total number of Bushnell AR optics models to 11. They range from 1-4x24mm to 4.5-18x40mm and come in eight different reticles.

“Each scope has a throw-down power-change lever that can be set to two different heights,” said Bushnell Tactical product manager Bryan Parrish said. “It makes these scopes as customizable as the rifles they share a name with.”

In addition, Bushnell is adding two new red dot sights to its AR Optics lineup. The first is the TRS-26, which features a longer battery life than its predecessor. It also has a brighter dot—which is 3 MOA—and a 26mm tube body, in addition to a push-button operation.

The First Strike 2.0, meanwhile, also has a longer battery life. It features a small, reflex-style, rugged housing and 4 MOA red dot.

“The First Strike 2.0 is two times the red dot its older brother was,” Parrish said. “It also features longer battery life, a brighter dot and tool-less side compartment battery removal.”

Both the TRS-26 and First Strike 2.0 are waterproof, fog proof and shockproof. Each offers adjustable brightness settings.

MSRP on the TRS-26 is $194. The First Strike 2.0 is priced at $277.45. See the specs for each below.
