Camera Land's Shot Show Preview
I'm headed out to Vegas Sunday for SHOT. Of course I will be writing and posting a daily SHOT Show report. We have set up a SHOT Show News tab on our home page for you to see updates and new product announcements.
We are running a SHOT Show Week Sale for you while I am gone that will run through the 22nd. If what you're looking for is not marked down just call the store, 516-217-1000, and I'm sure they'll hook you up. Our web builder has already started lowering prices on our site.
I'm looking forward to the show, seeing people and maybe adding a new brand or 2. We have been approached by Astra Optix who has already sent me their 10x42 Rangefinder Binocular which sells for only $499.99. I was curious, with no hopes of it being decent, when they offered to send it to me to check out, but shockingly the optics are way better than I expected and the LCD rangefinder is basic but does the job. Is this the greatest, absolutely not, however, a good quality 10x42 rangefinding binocular for only $499.99 is a great option for many people. I have set up a meeting with them to see what's what.
We have already let you know about some new products and here's a few that have been announced:
Athlon HERAS SPR Riflescopes
Athlons new line of Heras SPR Riflescopes pushes the envelope even further with features previously unheard of at this price point. The HERAS SPR offerings are incredibly versatile and cover a wide range of applications suitable to hunters, small-bore shooters, and air-gunners alike. This robust line is designed to handle the forward impulse of springer air guns, PCP and recoil from magnum centerfire rifles.
Heras 2-12x42 Riflescopes
Heras 4-20x50 Riflescopes
Heras 6-24x56 1st and 2nd FP Riflescopes
Sightron has just released 2 new scopes. Sightron S6 1-6x24
S6 1-6x24 FFP - LRT
S6 1-6x24 SFP - IR4A
Sightron’s engineers gave thoughtful consideration in designing a LPVO (low power variable optic) to meet the demanding needs of 3-gun competitors, tactical operators and close-range hunters. First, using the finest Japanese glass combined with Sightron’s exclusive MC-777 lens multi-coating, gives the shooter amazing clarity, contrast, and excellent light transmission all while reducing flare. This and combined with Sightron’s Precision Focus Eyepiece which provides comfortable eye-relief and a generous sight picture gives the shooter an uninterrupted sight of the target under varying lighting conditions. In those challenging lighting situations, another aid to help the shooter acquire their target is the 11-position illumination dial with off positions between each setting allowing the shooter to quickly set their desired intensity. The aircraft grade aluminum 34mm tube houses Sightron’s exclusive ExacTrack W&E system for consistent, repetitive tracking, and is O-ring sealed, nitrogen charged and 1,000G rated shockproof so that your scope provides reliable performance these shooters demand.
