This December, I’ll be bringing you a comprehensive review of Bushnell’s AR Optics 1-4x 24mm Throw Down PCL FFP Illuminated Reticle. I wanted to close out the year with at least one review of a mid priced magnified optic for the AR platform and I chose Bushnell’s optic. Driving that decision was its first focal plane reticle and the illuminated BTR.
I’m a precision rifle oriented guy, and I normally don’t run with FFP scopes because at the lower magnifications you tend to loose the reticle under less than optimal lighting conditions, which is not the case with a second focal plane design. So, I wanted to see how Bushnell’s FFP works out in a 1-4 power optic. I also like the BTR reticle quite a bit and it’s tuned for a 55g and 62g 5.56 x 45. It’s fast and accurate. I will admit that at first glance I felt the throw down PCL was a bit ghetto but after using it a few times I began to appreciate its merits.
Bushnell has done an exceptional job with this optic and I’ll be sharing my impressions with you in my upcoming review, so stay tuned for that.
In the meantime, keep your comments coming; know that they are appreciated.
