Alpen Riflescopes

Riflescopes from ALPEN OPTICS – outstanding quality and innovative technology

When you’re out hunting, obtaining a clear view of your target is essential if you want to be sure of success. As it’s not always possible to rely on the naked eye, a good riflescope is a must-have piece of gear for any hunting enthusiast – models made using high-end glass material, high-performance coatings and modern technology can significantly boost your chances of success. As a premium brand for hunting optics, ALPEN OPTICS makes no compromises in the design of its riflescopes. Read on to find out more about the cutting-edge features of our riflescopes!

Innovative technology for hunting enthusiasts


Our riflescopes are equipped with innovative SmartDot technology, which uses a built-in tilt sensor to switch off the light spot and enable sleep mode when you place the rifle in a standby position. When you move the rifle back into a shooting position, the light spot switches back on automatically within a few milliseconds. This saves you valuable time and allows you to focus on the hunt. In addition, the device switches off completely once it has been in sleep mode for approximately 3 hours in order to save energy. When you’re ready to start shooting again, simply turn the built-in control dial to switch the light spot back on and set the desired brightness.

Fluodigits Technology
by Alpen Optics

Staying out of sight is essential if you want to maximise your chances of success during a hunt. Our riflescopes are equipped with innovative FluoDigits technology, which is particularly useful for hunting at night or in twilight conditions. In order to help you view the zoom level in the dark (typically very difficult with most riflescopes), ALPEN OPTICS riflescopes feature a special FluoDigits coating that keeps the zoom numbers illuminated for up to 4 hours without attracting attention from your target (the light from the digits is undetectable at distances greater than 1.5 metres). This allows you to see the current zoom setting while staying undetected. During the day, the zoom numbers can be viewed as normal.

High-performance coatings for stunning images in challenging lighting conditions

The more light that passes through the riflescope, the brighter the image. This is particularly important when hunting during twilight hours or in adverse weather conditions. Featuring high-performance coatings that provide impressive light transmission of well over 90%, ALPEN OPTICS riflescopes are ideal for these types of scenarios.

Special UBX coating for even brighter images

ALPEN OPTICS Apex XP riflescopes come with a cutting-edge Ultra-bright coating (UBX) to ensure that you obtain a bright image of your target, even during twilight hours or in adverse weather conditions.

Full multi-layer coating for improved light transmission

The lenses on our riflescopes are equipped with a full multi-layer coating to enable more light to reach your eyes.

Cutting-edge glass material for optimal image quality

Glass is one of the most important materials used in riflescopes, as it has a significant impact on the image quality. For this reason, we only use the highest quality glass for our riflescopes. For example, the lenses in our HD glass models are made from a premium-grade glass material with a high light transmission, which renders images in razor-sharp detail.

MRAD mechanism for easy turret adjustment

All ALPEN OPTICS riflescopes are equipped with the MRAD 0.1 click adjustment mechanism, which is based on the metric system, and therefore easier to use than riflescopes with the imperial-based MOA turret system. With the MRAD system, the shooting range (in metres) can be quickly calculated in the unit of the turret setting (centimetres). MRAD stands for Milliradian and corresponds to 1/1000 of a radian (unit of angle). For example, 0.1 MRAD / MIL is equivalent to 1 cm at a distance of 100 metres. This means that one click of the MRAD mechanism corresponds to 3 cm (0.03 m) at a shooting range of 300 metres.

ALPEN OPTICS riflescopes with reticles for different purposes

A reticle helps you to aim and shoot at your target with precision. A range of reticles are available for riflescopesdepending on your exact needs. The following section provides an overview of the four most common types of reticle, which are also used in ALPEN OPTICS riflescopes.


A duplex-style reticle is located in the second focal plane, and does not change in size when you zoom in. With this type of reticle, the four crosshairs are thicker towards the edge and form a thin cross in the middle. This allows you to position your target symmetrically.

German #4 reticle

This is the most common type of reticle for hunting. The reticle is located in the second focal plane and does not change in size when you zoom in. It consists of three thick cross hairs and one thin cross hair, which extends from the edge of the eyepiece to the centre. With this type of reticle, the following formula can be used to calculate the distance to your target: if your target fits between the two horizontal crosshairs, it is 100 metres away.

Mil-Dot reticle

Riflescopes with a Mil-Dot reticle are primarily used in shooting sports and for long-range hunting. The Mil-Dot serves as a measure of length, whereby the number of dots is indicated with Mil. On a riflescope with constant zoom, 1 Mil is equivalent to a length of 10 cm at a distance of 100 metres, and one Mil-Dot corresponds to 2 cm.


BDC stands for “Bullet drop compensator”. This type of reticle was developed for long-range distance shooting, and allows you to calculate how far a bullet will drop at a given range using the various reference points.

Zero-stop function for quickly resetting the zero position

Changing wind conditions or moving to closer or longer ranges may require you to temporarily adjust the reticle. To simplify this process, all ALPEN OPTICS riflescopes are equipped with a zero-stop function. This stops the turret when it reaches the preset zero setting, allowing you to quickly reset the zero position without conducting a visual check.

Durable design for use in all weather conditions

Just like all outdoor activities, hunting can be impacted by adverse weather conditions. For this reason, all our riflescopes feature a durable weatherproof design.

Waterproof housing

All ALPEN OPTICS riflescopes feature a waterproof housing that is waterproof to up to 3 metres. This prevents water from coming into contact with the optics during heavy rain or in the event of an accidental drop in a puddle.

Fog-free lenses

ALPEN OPTICS riflescopes are filled with inert gas to prevent the insides of the lenses from fogging up in the event of rapid changes in temperature.

Recoil-resistant precision optics

Our riflescopes feature a recoil-resistant design that can withstand a force of up to 1000 g – equivalent to that of a magnum cartridge.
