Best Gear Guns & Gear Optics Riflescopes SHOT Show 2014

New Rifle Scopes from the 2014 SHOT Show

The annual SHOT Show provides hunters and shooters with a look at the latest guns and gear, and this year was no exception. The 2014 SHOT Show was for the most part dominated by tactical and long-range equipment. It follows, then, that this year’s optics would go along with those same themes, and that has proven to be true.

Even budget-priced scopes are now incorporating tactical features like ballistic reticles. Resettable turrets were popular, as were larger scope bodies and illuminated reticles. As shooters stretch their limits, optics companies are doing their best to keep up with the demand, offering new options for shooters in every price range. Here are a list of the best new rifle scopes at the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.

    The new Burris Veracity scopes are categorized as “moderately priced”, really? Since when is a hunting riflescope that has an MSRP of over $1000 considered moderately priced? And it should be pointed out that none of these new scopes are illuminated. I haven’t read any reports of the quality of the glass. One has hope that the build and glass quality will measure up to these “moderate” prices Burris expects these scopes to command.

    On paper these Veracity scopes hit all the hot buttons that are in vogue today. The question is can they pull it off? Hopefully Burris has learned from it’s mistakes. The last attempt by Burris to crack the $1000 barrier in hunting scopes did not fair well. The SixX and FourX scopes failed miserably even though on paper they had all the right features in demand at that time. What we need is an honest and unbiased in depth review of these scopes ASAP. If it can execute, Burris might just have a new industry standard on it’s hands.
