The best selling model in the Hi-Lux Optics line has been the well designed CMR1-4x24mm model tactical scope. And when one sees the quality and the features found on this model, and compares this scope with other brands of similar design with similar features, it becomes very apparent why it has been so well received. The scope is one heck of a buy, and in several shooting publication articles on scopes of this design, the Hi-Lux CMR1-4x has more than held its own against scopes costing twice as much or more. One feature shooters have liked tremendously has been the reticle, featuring an illuminated circular center and dot, plus numerous quick ranging brackets and bullet drop compensating hold over lines for ranges to 600 meters when shooting with standard .223 Remington (5.56mm) or .308 Winchester (7.62mm NATO) service rounds.
Now the company is answering the call for this scope designed for the standard AK47 service round (Russian AK-47 57-H-231 122gr) , .300 blackout and the .300 Whisper V-Max 110gr.
The CMR-AK762 is identical in every way, except for the reticle, which has been designed around the ballistics of the 7.62x39mm cartridge. The new reticle still incorporates the illuminated center circle and dot, plus ranging brackets for getting on target quickly and knowing the range when a shot or shots must be taken immediately. For longer range work with the 7.62x39mm round , the reticle features bullet drop compensating hold over lines to 900 meters. The same hold over lines can be used to 550 meters for target work with rifles in .300 BLK or .300 Whisper. At 4x the reticle also includes a feature for estimating range to 1,000 yards.
