Rudolph Optics stands for top-quality, precision engineering with extreme reliability and a lifetime guarantee. All processes during the manufacture of Rudolph Optics products – from the production and coating of the lenses to the manufacture of the optical systems and the final mounting – are carried out under strict supervision.

This ensures the highest level of quality, which is clearly visible in every product that bears the Rudolph Optics name. The newly designed optics feature modern, multilayer coatings and provide high light transmission for outstanding image quality and brightness. Whether you are a professional hunter, competition shooter or travelling hunter, reliable target optics are essential in order to shoot accurately in demanding terrain and under difficult conditions.

At Rudolph Optics we strive to provide hunters and shooters with the best possible “set of optical tools” for that decisive moment to ensure they are perfectly equipped and do not miss the opportunity of a lifetime. The team’s mission and challenge were to build a riflescope that is worthy of the Rudolph Optics name in every regard, yet offering versatility, reliability and an affordable price that will appeal to a wider range of hunters and shooters.

African conditions demand a versatile and reliable riflescope for local hunters and shooters and that is precisely what the Rudolph Tactical Series offers:

• A wide range of magnification for shots from 50 m up to 1 000 m.

• The tried and tested T3 SFP and T6 FFP reticles provide for quick and accurate shooting without adjustment (see accompanying photo).

• Tactical turrets with the new ZEROSET function fitted to the elevation turret with MOA windage/elevation settings (see accompanying photo).

• Waterproof, fogproof and shockproof up to 1 200 Gs.

• 30 mm, one-piece main tube for added strength and recoil resistance.

• Quick-focus eyepiece with 100 mm eye relief, suitable for even the most powerful calibres.

• 50 mm objective lens with fully multicoated lenses, providing very efficient light transmission, even during twilight.

• A Rudolph scope will outperform any riflescope in the same price range.

The Rudolph brand has become a household term in the South African market over the last decade.

The Tactical Series offers two models:

• T1 6-24x50mm T3 SFP reticle (suggested retail price: R12 950)

• T1 6-24x50mm T6 FFP reticle (suggested retail price: R15 950)

The very popular T3 reticle, designed with the help of Andre Volschenk, a current Springbok field target shooting team member, is installed in the SFP (second focal plane) model and the T6 reticle in the FFP (first focal plane) model.

As good as Rudolph Optics scopes might be, they also recognise that the satisfaction of their customers is what ultimately matters most. This philosophy is paramount when it comes to their service, their support and the way they do business.

Rudolph Optics offers a non-quibble, full-lifetime NQA warranty that states the following: “If at any time a Rudolph riflescope is found to have a defect in material or workmanship, it will be repaired or replaced free of charge.” The guarantee is transferable, but all owners must register their product to be eligible.
