LEICA MAGNUS 2.4-16X56 SCOPE
The Leica Magnus 2.4-16×56 made quite an impact on the market in 2011 when it was first presented; due to the unbelievable light transmission for a super zoom scope, rated at 91%. With its 56mm objective lens and such a light transmission rate it is a true lowlight specialist in the Leica Magnus series of riflescopes. Astonishing light transmission rate in a scope with 6.7x zoom ratio however, was not the only strong point of the Magnus 2.4-16×56. Stray light suppression, high level of resolution and vivid colors were all on the top-level expected from a brand with such a high reputation.
WIDE FIELD OF VIEW
Leica also created a new benchmark with 2.4-16×56 riflescope in the terms of wide field of view. At 2.4x magnification the Leica Magnus 2.4-16×56 is offering an impressive figure of 17m / 100m. No other scope with 2.4x or 2.5x magnification offers this much field of view.
EFFORTLESS EYE POSITIONING
Another thing which is also immediately noticeable when using this scope is how easy and how effortless it is to look through it. The Leica 2.4-16×56 is as undemanding as it gets at eye position and the user gets the perfect picture even if their eye is not perfectly aligned with the scope axis or their eye relief is not exactly 90mm as stated by Leica. The eye box size is big which is one of the main advantages of the Magnus 2.4-16×56 riflescopes when used in real world situations. If you will look carefully at the photos below you will also see that the circular image through the scope is bigger with the Magnus 2.4-16×56 than with any other scope we tested.
Since this Magnus was designed for lowlight use, with its big entry lens, it is also a great choice for long- range shooting. With parallax adjustment and high magnification the image can be zoomed in and because of Leica Optics, all the details are crisp and sharp. Magnus riflescope also features an advanced ballistic elevation turret called Leica BDC (previously called Leica ASV), Leica BDC turrets have 100 clicks (1cm/100m) in one single turn and can be locked into position. With an elevation range of 10 mrad this is a true long-range scope and with its locking function perfect for hunting, even when stalking in dense forest or bushes. Leica also produces 12 different rings for their BDC turret, which have engraved values for 12 different ballistic curves. These curves cover almost all common calibers and enable the user to easily dial the correct elevation correction for any distances. These custom BDC rings are named EU1 to EU12 and have marks like this: 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4 and so on for the corresponding distances 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400 meters. Long-range shooting while hunting has never before this easy and precise.
