Bushnell Elite Tactical Rifle Scope

The New Busnell Elite Tactical Rifle Scope is exactly that...elite. It's compact and durable, it provides long-range precision without sacrificing short-range capability. 

It was designed alongside military and law enforcement experts, Bushnell left out no details when creating the Elite with it's unfailing reliability and precision. It's crafted with a rock-solid, hammer-forged, waterproof aluminum alloy body. The Elite Tactical HDMR Rifle Scope has multi-coated lenses with waterproof and fogproof RainGuard HD coating for excellent clarity and light transmission.

There are so many application-specific features to the rifle scope such as T-Lok tactical turrets for precise, positive adjustments, a blacked-out finish for optimum concealment, and sophisticated reticles for CQB and long range shooting. The Elite Tactical HDMR Rifle Scope features a G2 reticle, which provides 10 mils of holdover with .5 gradations and the capability to make .5 mil windage holds while not obscuring the view of a target.

It measures at only 13.2" long making it streamlined and compact. You've gotta use it to believe it.

Kershaw: Thermite

Once the Kershaw Thermite knife was introduced last year, it's been in high demand ever since. Kershaw has now given it a new look with the "blackwash" finish. 

What is blackwash, you ask? It's that already-broken-in-look that people love, kind of like your favorite well-worn pair of jeans. The coating provides a nice extra protection for the metal but the blackwash design helps to hide any additional scratches you may put on the knife during normal use.

While the look may be changed, the Thermite's tactical styling and practical performance, designed by Rick Hinderer, will not. This is a no-nonsense functionality, but with enough style to be an exceptionally eye-catching knife and blackwash just makes it more so.

For easy opening the Thermite is equipped with SpeedSafe which can be assessed with the ambidextrous flipper or thumbstud. The 3.5" blade is hollow-ground, with provides excellent slicing ability.

  • SpeedSafe® assisted opening
  • Frame lock with lockbar stabilizer
  • Flipper and thumbstud
  • 4-position deep-carry pocketclip (right/left; tip-up/down)
  • Stainless steel blade, BlackWash™ finish
  • Handle: Machined G-10 front, 410 steel back, BlackWash™ finish
  • Blade length: 3.5 in. (8.9 cm)
  • Closed length: 4.9 in. (12.4 cm)
  • Overall length: 8.4 in. (21.3 cm)
  • Weight: 4.9 oz.
