Here’s the dirty little secret we all know: many shooters either can’t or don’t want to purchase a $2,000 optic for every rifle build. When you’re a serious trigger puller, regardless if your passion comes from hunting, long-range shooting or simply plinking away at the range, most real shooters own a multitude of rigs. It’s tough financially to equip them all with expensive glass. For anyone, for any reason, looking for a quality, multi-purpose long-range optic, the Riton 5 Primal 2-12×44 checks a bunch of boxes.
Riton 5 Primal 2-12×44 Details
Billed as the “most versatile 2-12×44 riflescope” by Riton, the 5 Primal brings a host of features geared toward hunters and long-range shooters. The optic features fully multi-coated HD glass for clarity and light transmission. It also delivers a generous field-of-view throughout the magnification range, according to Riton. It all comes housed in a rugged 30mm 6061 T6 aircraft-grade aluminum main tube. The optic rates waterproof, shockproof and fog proof as well. “This riflescope is designed and built to withstand the harshest environments and conditions that a hunter or shooter may encounter,” stated a Riton press release.
Windage and elevation adjustments come via tactile, low-profile turrets in 1/4-MOA adjustments. Machined aluminum turret caps protect the system and dialed adjustments.
The Riton Precision Hunting Dot (PHD) reticle and second focal plane optical design in the 5 PRIMAL 2-12×44 provide hunters and shooters a precise aiming center dot, as well as holdover and wind-hold references for quick target acquisition and accuracy. Further, hunters can utilize the PHD reticle for range estimation on deer-size animals while dialed to 12X, utilizing the Riton Ranging Chart, found online.
Best of all, the 5 Primal 2-12×44 comes backed with a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Riton Promise. Retail is listed at $779.99. For even more info, please visit ritonoptics.com.
