Crimson Trace 5 Series

Crimson Trace recently announced its newest mid-range, variable-power riflescope, the CTL-5318 5 Series. The first focal plane optic utilizes Japanese ED glass clarity to deliver uncompromising performance.

The CTL-5318 5 Series features a custom-designed MR1-MIL advanced reticle. It is fully illuminated and offers quick hold-over points for both windage and elevation. The exposed .1 MIL tactical turrets provide a precise and rugged feel when dialing for accurate shots, according to Crimson Trace.

Delivering a variable magnification range of 3-18X, the 50mm objective lens should transmit ample amount of ambient light. Once looking downrange, shooters will find a glass etched, MR1-MIL Advanced Illuminated reticle. It sits in front of the magnification mechanism, scaling to provide correct ballistic hold points at any range. This feature allows the reticle to be sighted in at any part of the magnification scale and get precise range measurements, according to Crimson Trace.

Numerous windage holding points allow for on-the-fly adjustments during ever-changing environmental conditions. Meanwhile, premium, fully multi-coated ED glass leads to enhanced image quality across the visual spectrum, according to Crimson Trace.

Allowing for elevation and windage adjustments makes the 5 Series optimal for long-range precision and precision competition applications. The Zero-Stop delivers a simplified return to zero and 2nd rotation indicator. A forgiving eye-box with diopter adjustment helps maintain a focused reticle.

Each 5 Series scope utilizes a single anodized 30mm main tube. Waterproof and fog proof, coated lenses protect against scratches, oil and debris. Nitrogen purged and O-ring sealed, the 5 Series handles the most demanding environments.

The entire Crimson Trace scope line offers EZ Mount Leveling Indicators for quick and exact mounting. Meanwhile, a red alignment ring helps ensure proper eye placement. All Crimson Trace scopes come with the Free Batteries For Life program. The company’s Lifetime Protection Guaranteed Warranty further insures the optic.
