Zero Compromise Optic ZC Hunter

The ZC Hunter 1.7-12x50 is a top-tier choice in the premium riflescope market, adept for various hunting scenarios such as moving, driven, and raised hide hunts.

Boasting an expansive 23m field of view at its 1.7x magnification setting, this riflescope leads the market with its unparalleled field view and a 50mm objective lens. The versatile magnification range, up to 12x, paired with the 50mm objective lens, ensures a crisp, high-contrast, and sharply detailed view. This makes it ideal for precise shooting in challenging light conditions, including low light or twilight environments.

Its reticle options enhance targeting precision: choose between a red/green illuminated dot in the first image plane or opt for the second image plane featuring advanced diffractive illumination technology with an exceptionally bright red dot.

Convenience is essential with the ZC Hunter 1.7-12x50. The eyepiece includes a comfortably designed, easy-to-manage zoom ring for smooth 1.7 to 12x magnification adjustments. An optional "throw lever" accessory is also available for even quicker zoom operation.

The "KP1" reticle, a creation of esteemed gunsmith Kurt Pritz from Mariapfarr, Austria, is featured in the first image plane. It is meticulously designed with a ballistic hold line for 300m, facilitating long-range precision shooting without additional adjustments. This reticle also offers a comprehensive and bright field of view, maintaining maximum edge clarity as the bars do not extend to the edge of the field of view.

The advanced Multi-Hunting-Reticle (MHR) in the first focal plane represents an evolution of the classic hunting reticles 1, 4, and 8, developed in collaboration with German shooting instructor Michael Gast. The MHR is ideally suited for the new universal hunting glass, catering to driven hunts and long-range shooting.

Additionally, for enthusiasts of traditional hunting, the 4A-iD is a widely favoured reticle that features horizontal bars proportioned such that at 100 meters, they approximate the length of a buck, with a centre distance of 140cm at 100 meters. The reticle's 2cm/100m centre dot utilizes diffractive illumination technology, ensuring its visibility even under the most intense lighting conditions.

In addition to the standard capped turret featuring traditional click adjustments, there is a ballistic turret option for the ZC hunter. This system, crafted from premium aluminium, is both highly accurate and user-friendly.

It enables the shooter to pre-set three distinct shooting distances, marked with colored rings for quick range selection. This feature is seamlessly integrated without affecting the complete mil adjustment scale's functionality.

Furthermore, the turret is equipped with a locking mechanism, ensuring that adjustments remain unchanged during activities like navigating rugged landscapes or transporting the firearm. This design feature adds an extra layer of reliability and precision for the user.
