One of these scopes is about to go onto my list of recommendations. Somewhat unusually, it is about to land there before I fully finish with my review, so I figured I should qualify that a little.
They had sort of a soft introduction earlier on, but now both models are available. I never quite paid attention to that, but I have a retro AR project that I am conceiving.
[SHOT 2020] Brownells MPO Precision Rifle Optics
By going directly to the OEM and being the only retailer, Brownells is able to keep the price lower that similarly configured competition. To be clear: I have probably seen all of them, so do not take this statement lightly.
It is not the shortest, nor the lightest. Size-wise, it is decidedly midpack and given the moderate price, I am very comfortable with that. I am leery of excessively ambitious designs on a budget. Everything in this scope just works. Image quality is very good. Turrets track as they should with a zero stop integrated into the elevation turret and windage turret covered. The reticle, while looking somewhat unusual with its double lines, works very well across the entire magnification range.
Illumination is well calibrated to keep the reticle visible even in low light. These are better than the MPO, but at triple the price, they better be. Tangent Theta is the best optimized x scope I have seen to date and it is lighter than everything similar other than March. However, if someone comes to me without a very specific application in mind, I will usually steer them toward something less expensive that works well overall.
Add some appropriate rings and you are good to go. Most importantly, the sight picture you get is exactly the same on all three platforms and you are likely to manage it without mortgaging your kidneys to finance the whole thing. The MPO punches above its weight class. Here are some through the scope videos as well.
I will probably redo some of these to get better focus, but for now they will do. You must be logged in to post a comment.

Question Please enter your question.Brownells says that the MPO line is built with edge blackened Japanese glass so we expect the clarity to be every bit as good as the prototype scopes we saw at Industry Day At The Range last year. If you are an MOA scope lover, you are out of luck this time.
Brownells even saw fit to incorporate a rather stout zero stop system into the optic that appears reasonably intuitive at a glance. The N-OMR is designed with an open center main crosshair that allows for an easy to acquire crosshair without it obscuring the target.
Announced inBrownells MPO scopes are geared toward precision rifle shooters, PRS competitors and anyone else looking for high-quality scopes with lots of features typically found on much-more expensive scopes.
The reticle gives a strong crosshair at low magnification, but still allows the shooter to easily center the target without covering it up at high magnification. Brownells MPO scopes have resettable zeros, capped windage turrets to prevent accidental adjustments, and come with a sunshade, lens covers, lens cloth and built-in throw lever for instant magnification changes.
So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. Read More. Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial.
Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. Forums New posts Search forums.

Joined Feb 9, Messages 1, First glance it looks like a Tangent Theta from the spiral dials. Anyone get to fondle one yet? You must log in or register to reply here. Recent Posts.We wanted to incorporate many recent innovations in optics, while pricing it ideally for Production Class in the fast paced Precision Rifle competitions.
The MPO has fully multi-coated, edge-blackened Japanese glass for superb image clarity. The turrets offer tactile and audible clicks and are easy to reset to zero. Elevation turret features a zero stop and allows. An added bonus is the thin double line increase visibility of the crosshair at low magnification. This type of reticle is excellent for shooting disciplines requiring fast shots under a time constraint, or when fast follow up shots are needed.
The Brownells x56mm MPO is the perfect optic for the long-range competitor whose budget is not unlimited, or somebody who wants to get started in the sport.

Brownell's Match Precision Optic New Scopes
Please verify your age! Item is not in stock! Would you like to backorder? Important Information! Would you like to be alerted when the item becomes available again? Quantity: Email:. Thank you for contacting our Chat Team!If you have acquired one of the Brownells retro guns or if you have other ARs with a carry handle, now you can retrofit it with the replica of this historical Vietnam War era Colt scope. The new scope is made with modern technologies and materials yet externally it is pretty much identical to the original scope down to small details like the yellow inspection sticker on the bottom.
It is waterproof, fog proof and features multi-coated lenses. The scope has a BDC adjustable turret tailored for grain. The scope comes with the carry handle mount and can be attached to most carry handles without a use of tools. This new scope has a non-illuminated duplex reticle, 3. Its overall length is 6. Looks just like the original and even made by the same company!
This should make any retro build look even cooler. Tell us in the comments section what do you think about this scope and building retro guns in general.

The optic clamps directly to the carry handle via an integral mounting clamp. The optic has a duplex reticle and is calibrated for modern and 5.
As the name suggest, the optic has a fixed 4x magnification. It has a 21mm objective lens with elevation adjustments marked in yard increments. Also new are the BRN lower receivers. The two new lowers available from Brownells allow you to build firearms that are optimized for use with folding stocks or braces, they both include integral Picatinny rail attachment points on the rears.
The lowers use standard AR mags and components. The billet version is available now. The forged lowers are expected to be available in February So it made sense for them to team up and offer the WWSD to consumers.
The Mk3 Lower also has an improved pistol grip angle and texture. The stock on the lower has QD socket points for a sling as well as a storage compartment that can be used for a cleaning kit, batteries, etc. The Mk3 lower will also be available separately either stripped or with Mil-Spec internals.
