The Elcan series of scopes also offer impressive features such as : stable digital zoom and no moving parts, enhanced night sight capabilities, fully electronic ballistics compensation and remote viewing. This series of scopes introduce a whole new level of hunting capability.

Are There Any Drawbacks To These Types Of Riflescopes?

With all that they have to offer, many people wonder if there are drawbacks to using them. The only aspect that some consider a drawback is the weight they can add to a gun. The average weight of a digital scope is around 26 ounces. To some it is not a significant difference, not compared to the features it offers, but for others there is a bit of concern. To stationary marksmen competitions, the weight is of no consequence, which makes it an overall accepted aspect of the scopes. The other issues with digital scopes is the aspect that they do require a power source. For indoor settings, certain models of scopes can be powered by an adapter, while most have a battery systems that utilizes standard or specialized lithium batteries. To preserve battery life, it is recommended to remove them when not in use, but otherwise, the scopes power maintenance is no more tedious than any other electronic device.
