NEW Leica FORTIS 6 Rifle Scope (1-6×24 & 2-12×50)

Leica has introduced several new products among which the most interesting one is arguably the Fortis 6 scope. It is available in two versions: 1-6×24 and 2-12×50. Leica describes these scopes as “The new benchmark in the 6x zoom class“. Let’s take a closer look.

According to Leica, the unmatched performance is achieved due to the 50% larger exit pupil and an extremely wide field of view at minimum magnifications which allows for quick target acquisition. Both models are also advertised to be shockproof and resistant to bumps and falls during the hunting trip. The company claims that “Fortis 6 even exceeds the strict requirements for professional use in many tests of DIN ISO 9022 (international environmental standard for optical instruments)“.
