Introducing the Brownells 1-6 MPO Scope with Donut Reticle — SHOT Show 2022

Brownells new 1-6×24 SFP MPO scope.

Brought out to Range Day for SHOT Show 2022, Brownells showcased its new 1-6×24 second focal plane scope with an illuminated donut reticle. While their 1-8×24 scope has been out for a little while, they are aiming to create a low-power variable optic (LPVO) for fast target acquisition and engagement utilizing their new reticle.

Included throw-lever.

Inspired by the Austrian StG77 or Steyr AUG, the “Donut” reticle is aimed to provide basic ranging capabilities while remaining simplistic and quick to pick up.

The illuminated reticle has 6 brightness settings and is powered by a single CR2032 battery. Being a second focal plane scope, as the user zooms in, the reticle remains the same so any ranging will need to be done at 1X magnification.

This scope is assembled in Japan featuring multicoated lenses and a glass etched reticle. Mounted to one of their BRN-180 rifles, I was able to shoot a few rounds and the glass clarity seemed on par for the price. 

Utilizing capped elevation turrets, users can choose to lock out their zero, or use the 0.1 mil increments to dial in their adjustments for longer shots. Both the windage and elevation turrets provide 40 MILs of adjustment range each.
