Lucid Optics 4-16x44 Rifle Scope w/L5 Reticle
As shooters, we expect some very specific things from our gear. Knowing how we use our gear drives the expectations and sets the stage for the design of the product. The L5 series of rifle scopes was intentionally over built and designed to offer features and performance that is not found anywhere else at this price point. We approached this product development seeking candid and detailed feedback from operators, law enforcement and military professionals as well as competitive and recreational shooters. We took all of the requests and balanced them out in a long list of our own development priorities.
The result was a purpose built optic in a stout 30mm one piece aluminum frame with all of the durability and quality that LUCID Optics has become known for. It also has a level of operator benefits and creature comforts that simply are not found anywhere else.
L5 Rifle scopes offer precise and repeatable 1/8 MOA windage and elevation adjustments on lockable and re-zeroable, tactical style turrets. The side parallax adjustment combined with the ocular diopter adjustment provides a crisp target image over the entire magnification range. The L5 Reticle is a precise MOA measuring device with 2 MOA increments below the rifle’s zero and meaningful windage values built in.
With the 4-16×44 “Cross Over” rifle scope, LUCID Optics is providing a quality solution for the hunter. This optic has all of the same over built developments and precision qualities as the bigger brother, but is offered in a magnification range that is more
suitable for the hunter.

The L5 reticle is set in the Second Focal plane. This is done intentionally to allow the operator to be able to back off the magnification and gain substantially more distance in target striking capability. By backing off the magnification, this changes the field of view and increases the “Hold Over” distances available to the operator in the field of view with meaningful and precise reticle increments.
