The Ares ETR First Focal Plane Scope is loaded with features that will allow you to take your long range shooting to another level.

Featuring a completely revamped turret system, it also has a locking Windage turret along with a true zero stop on the elevation turret to make sure your turrets and shots are right on every time. Extra dispersion ED lenses allow for the sharpest and best color image possible.

Constructed with a 34mm tube, this riflescope can withstand even the harshest of elements.

  • Comes in Black or Brown
  • Choose one of the following reticles:
  • All Ares ETR Rifle Scopes features 4.5-30x magnification with a 56mm lens diameter
  • First Focal Point – allows you to fully use the specially designed reticle
  • Extra Low Dispersion – AKA ED Glass (what’s this?) – giving you the brightest and sharpest image possible
  • 34mm long tube which allows for more distance and windage adjustment 
  • Features a locking Windage turret – pull up on the turret to turn, then push down to lock in place. This feature prevents the windage knob from being turned accidentally and keeps your zero all the time
  • Precision Zero Stop System – lock down your zero position and dial back to it with a sharp and precise stop right at your zero mark even you are turning it in pitch-dark or blind folded
  • Illuminated reticle – enhances visibility during dusk and dawn
  • Etched glass reticle – excellent for complex reticle design (Learn More)
  • Water, fog and shock proof – this scope handles any condition
  • Argon purged – Argon Purging (as opposed to Nitrogen Purging) uses the inertia gas with bigger size molecules to purge any moisture out of the tube giving you better waterproofing and thermal stability
  • Lifetime Warranty – we guarantee you’ll love this scope, and that it will love you (warranty details)

Yes, the Ares ETR is air gun rated.

No it doesn’t, but we are working on a package deal so you can get this featured.
