The CVLIFE 2.5-10x40e scope doesn’t look like your average scope by hunting or tactical means but it sure comes with some cool features to help level the playing field. It’s not your typical long barreled scope and thus has a shorter range than say your high powered Leupold scope.
The 2.5-10x40e is the ideal beginner’s scope, and not just because it has a shorter barrel or range. Rather it has a number of features particularly for beginners to help you become accustomed to shooting with optics.
As a lightweight scope, it also comes with two different mounts (20 and 11mm) so it’s interchangeable between rifles. This is another point about this scope—it’s versatile. It’s insanely cheap compared to other high-quality scopes, but we rarely found a customer who was dissatisfied with the optics or level of focus and magnification.
This scope has a laser, simply put. Why? To help with targeting. The laser’s range is only about a hundred yards, which further adds to the proposition that this is a beginners scope. Anyhow, the laser will help you know if you’re locked onto a target, but only at a close distance. It’s also mounted to the side of the scope (right next to the main barrel), so the targeting may be off by a slight inch.
- The laser can be controlled independently and adjusted to suit your needs.
The reticle also illuminates in a couple of different colors to aid you at certain times of the day.
- Magnification: 2.5-10x
- Field Of View: 100 yards of 32.5′ at 2.5x/8.9′ at 10x
- Laser Reaching Distance: 100 yards
This is a budget scope that comes with a couple of neat perks to back up its low price. The laser is thought of by most customers as enjoyable or unnecessary depending on preference. Regardless, this CVLIFE would make a great beginners scope for most rifles that fit its mounting system.
With the addition of power settings for the reticle and other dials for adjustments, the 2.5-10x40e scope will make a great entry for you into the world of sporting optics.
