EOTECH Vudu 5-25×50
As a favorite among law enforcement, military, and precision rifle competitors, the EOTECH Vudu 5-25×50 first focal plane rifle scope has earned top honors in the field and at range because of its compact, rugged design and superior optics. It features incredible edge-to-edge clarity and true color representation in a compact unit that is a little over 11 inches in length. With its compact design, there is more room to mount a night vision or thermal device in front of the rifle scope and make adjustments to the scope without leaving the optic. ($2,099, eotech.com)
