Question: Can this scope be used with my rifle's built-in iron sight, or do I need a riser mount?
Answer: Yes, this scope with the included mount will clear a standard front iron sight with no need for a riser mount.
Question: What does IR stand for, is it infrared?
Answer: "IR" Stands for "Illuminated Reticle" not infrared. The reticle design can be illuminated from black to red or green.
The new SWAT-AR 1-6x32 IR Rifle Scope has been specifically designed for close to mid-range targeting, and works best with the popular AR-style rifle. The included cantilever scope mount positions the SWAT-AR scope perfectly on flat-top AR rifles, positioning the scope just ahead of the rifle's charging handle where it will not interfere with operation. The scope's 1-6x magnification provides an excellent zoom range for engaging targets in CQB situations while providing enough zoom to hit targets out past 100 yards. A solid 35mm main tube and tough shockproof construction keeps the SWAT-AR on target shot after shot. Additionally, fully multicoated optics and adjustable parallax settings help maintain maximum clarity at these longer distances, providing maximum light transmission to the user while correcting any parallax discrepancies.
The SWAT-AR 1-6x32 Tactical Scope features the popular Mil-Dot Reticle located on the second focal plane. This glass-etched reticle can be illuminated in either red or green and set to different brightness levels. This allows the shooter to adjust the brightness settings of the reticle to fit the current lighting environment, which is especially helpful in low-light situations. Two buttons conveniently located near the ocular lens control the Illuminated Reticle (IR) settings. One push activates the illuminated reticle, and additional pushes adjust the brightness until it returns to its highest setting.
This SWAT-AR model features innovative external locking turrets. The windage and elevation turrets can be adjusted, locked into place, or returned to zero quickly without having to remove any turret caps. These large textured turrets are easy to adjust even with gloves on, and their ability to lock into place ensures that no unintentional movement will occur to the windage or elevation settings. The 1-6x32 SWAT-AR Rifle Scope also comes with a one piece cantilever scope mount, two flip-up scope caps, and one CR2032 3V Lithium battery. This scope is fully nitrogen purged and o-ring sealed for complete waterproof and fogproof protection, ensuring years of reliable service. The SWAT-AR 1-6x32 Rifle Scope is backed by Barska's Limited Lifetime Warranty.
