Schmidt&Benderdevelops ShortDotCCfurther


German optics giantSchmidt&Bender’s 1-8x24PMII ShortDotDual CC represents the latestdevelopmentof this proven 8xmagnification riflescope.


T


he 1-8x24 PM II ShortDot Dual CC differs noticeably from the original 1-8x24 PM II ShortDot CC that has both the red dot and reticle located in the second focal plane.


The new model retains both the red dot and reticle; however, the red dot remains in the second focal plane and the reticle is located in the first focal plane. This design combination off ers the shooter a strong


advantage over their riflescope because it serves as both a reflex sight for close combat and a riflescope for short to medium distances. This design is the ideal solution for mobile use in various hostile urban environments. The red dot serves as a perfect solution for acquiring


threats and targets in Close Combat Mode (CCM). In this mode the riflescope has a true 1x magnification


and is parallax free below 10 metres. By increasing the magnification above the CC Mode the riflescope is parallax free to 100 metres. Since the red dot is located in the second focal plane, the


size of the dot remains constant to the shooter. The red dot illumination intensity is adjustable and is daylight visible. Beyond CCM 1x magnification seting, the Mildot reticle can


be used eff ectively. Because this is a first focal plane reticle design, it affords the shooter the opportunity for measuring and ranging of the target at the preferred magnification selected.

Furthermore, it also allows for target hold-over and hold-


under, as well as target leads – further adding to the speed and accuracy of target engagement for both initial and follow-up shots.


When adjusted to the maximum magnification of 8x, the


1-8x24 PM II ShortDot Dual CC is also an ideal riflescope for the critical purpose of target identification and operations support up to medium distances. The illumination intensity of the reticle can be regulated with


different increments. This also includes optimised increments for use with a night vision device. With a weight of about 22½oz, a length of 11.53 inches and a


30mmmain tube diameter, the 1-8x24 PM II ShortDot Dual CC yields a very compact two-in-one system. This model has a field of view between 105.9 feet and 14.7 feet at 100 yards, when adjusted between 1x and 8x setings respectively. The elevation and windage turrets are lockable to protect the


zero position against unintentional adjustment. This model is available in black, as a standard version and is also off ered in camouflage colours RAL8000 and Pantone 7504.
