Simmons Rifles Scopes – A Buyers Guide

Time to upgrade your hunting and shooting accessories again? In that case look no further than Simmons rifle scopes. For those of you who don’t know Simmons was bought out in the late 1990s by Meade Instruments – a California based optics company. Meade are well know for producing some of the most advanced and impressive telescopes in both the commercial and recreational industries. It was greatly anticipated when the buyout took place that Simmons rifle scopes would again begin to demonstrate some of the high class features that Meade has come to be associated with. That has definitely proven to be the case with the introduction of the Master Series from Simmons which has taken the shooting world by storm.

Several of the new Simmons rifle scopes sport some of the new Meade sourced technology – including the ProHunter, ProSport and the AETEC range of scopes. The ProDiamond also feature some of these new advancements. Just one of the features youíll see in the new lineup of Simmons scopes is a side focus parallax adjustment. This feature is available on variable power models with high-magnification.

One thing that wonít change in the new Simmons Master Series is the high-quality glass configurations and multicoatings that shooters have enjoyed for years. If anything the quality of the configuration will now be even better that Meade is involved in the equation.

Meade did resolve one problem that’s common to many high power rifle scopes. This is the elimination of the “fringe” that regularly appears around the edge of an image viewed through the scope. By combining different types of glass along with better quality optical coatings, Meade believes they have finally solved this problem and may have just revolutionized the rifle scope industry in a dramatic way.

Premium ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass is used in the design of the new objective lens. This is something that has never been done before in the production of scopes and although it may seem to be a bit revolutionary, that may just be what the industry needed to set it sailing toward new heights. With the use of this new construction application, the lenses are able to actually correct according to color, which can significantly reduce the amount of chromatic aberration that is experienced. In addition, resolution and contrast are simultaneously enhanced right along with light transmission. All of this results in images that are stronger and brighter and well as more accurate.

If you’re the kind of person who likes to stay on the cutting edge of their sport or hobby then you need look no further than the new range of Simmons rifle scopes. They have the future in their sights and are rapidly zeroing in to perfection.
