ALPEN OPTICS Apex XP 1.5-9x45 A4 riflescope with SmartDot technology

Product Information

Featuring a 30 mm tube diameter, the ALPEN Optics Apex XP 1.5-9x45 is a universal riflescope for day and twilight hunts. The German #4 illuminated reticle is located in the second focal plane and does not increase in size when you zoom in. In addition, with the ALPEN OPTICS Apex XP 1.5-9x45 riflescope you don't need to do any calculations using the MOA (minute of angle) system, as you can adjust the reticle using MRAD - i.e. 1 click = 1 cm at 100 metres.

Lightweight and durable design

Thanks to the short dimensions and lightweight construction weighing just 599 g, this riflescope is perfect for use with attachments. It also features a robust, recoil-proof design. And thanks to the waterproof housing, the ALPEN OPTICS Apex XP 1.5-9x45 is also suitable for use in adverse weather conditions.

Zoom with FluoDigits technology

Easy to use - the zoom ring features a grooved design and can be moved effortlessly with a small knob. Thanks to the built-in FluoDigits technology, the riflescope is also suitable for use in low-light conditions and with attachments: the FluoDigits system displays the zoom level discreetly so that you don't reveal your location in dark surroundings - with a battery life of at least 5 hours.

Coating

This riflescope for day and twilight hunting features a premium and innovative coating that produces clear and razor-sharp images.

Innovative SmartDot technology
MADE IN GERMANY

The SmartDot system features a built-in tilt sensor that automatically switches off the illuminated reticle to save battery power. It also saves you time by ensuring that you're always ready for action: the light spot switches on and off automatically when you move the rifle to a shooting/idle position. The light unit is located on the left side of the tube. And as you'd expect from a riflescope, there is also a zero stop function.

Weatherproof and recoil-proof

Thanks to the premium ALPEN optics, the riflescope is also suitable for use in adverse weather conditions. It is waterproof to up to 3 metres (IPX7), and can therefore withstand strong rain, snow, fog or even a short spell in a stream. The sturdy housing provides a reliable seal and prevents liquid from getting inside the optics. In addition, the optics are filled with nitrogen to prevent the lens from fogging up and obstructing your view in the event of abrupt changes in temperature. As a premium riflescope, the ALPEN OPTICS Apex XP  XP 1.5-9x45 is recoil-resistant up to 1000 grams (equivalent to a Magnum caliber).

Second focal plane (SFP) reticle

The reticle is located in the second focal plane, and therefore does not increase in size when you zoom in. As a result, the subtension depends on the zoom level.

Always spot on

Thanks to the innovative SmartDot technology with a built-in tilt sensor, the light spot switches on and off automatically based on the position of the rifle. This saves you valuable time and prevents the battery from draining.

Keep track of the zoom level

Fluorescent zoom numbers on the eyepiece – the innovative FluoDigits technology displays the zoom level discreetly in low-light conditions so that you don’t reveal your location. Perfect for attachments!

Brighter images

The ultra-bright coating lets even more light into your eyes so that you won’t be left in the dark during twilight and in challenging light conditions.

Watertight design

Thanks to the waterproof housing that prevents liquids from reaching the inside of the optics, you don’t need to worry about heavy rain or dropping the binoculars in a puddle.

More light for clearer images

The optics are fully coated with a premium multi-layer coating, which increases the light transmission to up to 95% to produce stunningly bright images.

Weatherproof design

The binoculars are filled with nitrogen, which prevents the inside of the lenses from fogging up and obstructing your view during abrupt changes in temperature.

Premium recoil-resistant optics

This premium riflescope can withstand recoil forces of up to 1000 grams, equivalent to a Magnum caliber.

Shows your target in the right light

In general, larger tube diameters provide better light transmission. Featuring a tube diameter of 30 mm, this scope lets in plenty of light to render your target clearly.

Nitrogen filling

The temperature can change rapidly when you’re out in the wild. To prevent the lenses from fogging up on the inside and obstructing your view, the optics are filled with nitrogen.

Zero stop

This riflescope is equipped with a zero stop function so that you can readjust the optics, e.g. due to a change in the wind conditions. With a correctly configured zero stop, you can return to the zero position without conducting a visual check. The zero stop prevents you from going below the zero position.

Difference MOA and MRAD

The MOA and MRAD turrent systems refer to two different measurement systems: metric and imperial. The Metric and the Imperial. Thus, the imperial system uses MOA and inches, and the metric system uses MRAD and centimeters. Therefore, at some point the question arises which turrent system is the better one. First and foremost, it's a matter of habit and personal preference.

MOA

MOA stands for Minute Of Angle and corresponds to 1 / 60 of a degree. The system is suitable for those familiar with the imperial system, since it is calculated in inches. 1 MOA is equivalent to 1.047'' at 100 yd (2.9 cm at 100 m).

MRAD

MRAD stands for milliradian and is 1 / 1000 of a radian (angular measure). 0.1 MRAD / MIL is equivalent to 1 cm at 100 m and is suitable for those using the metric system. One advantage of the metric system is, that it is very easy to calculate. The shooting distance (unit meter) can be quickly converted into the unit of turret adjustment (centimeter). One click of an MRAD click adjustment thus corresponds to 3 cm (0.03 m) at a firing distance of 300 m. ALPEN Optics uses MRAD 0.1 click adjustments for all riflescopes.
