ALPEN OPTICS Apex XP 2.5-16x42 A4 riflescope with SmartDot technology

Product informationen

The ALPEN OPTICS Apex XP 2.5–16x42 is a universal riflescope designed for day and twilight hunting. It has a tube diameter of 30 mm and comes with the German #4 illuminated reticle, which is located in the second focal plane and does not increase in size when you zoom in. This means that you don't need to do any calculations using the MOA (minute of angle) method. The reticle can be easily adjusted with MRAD - i.e. 1 click = 1 cm at 100 metres.


Short & crisp

  • Premium riflescope with German #4 illuminated reticle for day and twilight hunts
  • Short dimensions and lightweight design (615 g), ideal for use with attachments
  • Zoom with FluoDigits technology (fluorescent zoom digits)
  • Innovative, premium coating for crystal-clear, razor-sharp images
  • Innovative SmartDot technology saves energy and time
  • Reticle in the second focal plane
  • Reticle adjustment with MRAD
  • Waterproof and recoil-proof

Lightweight and durable design

Thanks to the short dimensions and lightweight design (615 g), the riflescope is ideal for use with attachments. It is also recoil-proof and features a waterproof housing to enable use in adverse weather conditions.


Zoom with FluoDigits technology

The zoom ring features a comfortable grooved design and can be moved effortlessly with a small knob. And thanks to the FluoDigits technology, the riflescope is also easy to use in low-light conditions: the fluorescent zoom numbers display the zoom level discreetly during twilight or even in the dark without revealing your location - with a battery life of at least 5 hours. Perfect for use with attachments!

Coating

Another highlight of the riflescope is the innovative and premium coating, which produces clear and razor-sharp images.

Innovative SmartDot technology
MADE IN GERMANY

The riflescope comes with SmartDot technology, which reduces battery consumption and saves you time. Thanks to the built-in tilt sensor, the light point 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 to ensure that the riflescope is always ready for use, saving you valuable time. As you'd expect from a riflescope, the ALPEN OPTICS Apex XP 2.5–16x42 comes with 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 2.5–16x42 is recoil-resistant up to 1000 grams (equivalent to a Magnum caliber).

Parallax compensation for perfect positioning

Simply set the parallax compensation to the desired range and the position of the reticle will remain the same. This is particularly useful if you look into the eyepiece at a slight angle, as the reticle will stay locked on your target.

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.

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.

Detailed, high-resolution images

Ideal for hiking, hunting and trekking – the high-definition optics produce an outstanding image in all types of conditions. The surroundings are rendered in high resolution and stunning detail. In addition, the high-performance HD glass has a very high light transmission, and produces bright images even in adverse weather and light conditions.

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.

Waterproof design

The housing features a splashproof design, which protects the optics during rain and adverse weather.

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.

Perfect for high magnifications

Featuring a tube diameter of 30 mm, this scope lets in a large amount of light so that you can view bright images even at high magnifications.

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.

Differnce 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.
