Vortex Golden Eagle HD 15-60x52 Riflescope (ECR-1 MOA Reticle)

Vortex Optics rifle scopes boast extreme durability, high mechanical precision, and superior high-definition optics. The Golden Eagle HD 15-60x52 Riflescope (ECR-1 MOA Reticle) offers exceptional image quality, extremely well-balanced color, and excellent light transmission to deliver true high definition images. The lenses are crafted from a high-density (HD) extra-low dispersion optical glass. The 52mm objective lens is ideal for low-light conditions and features a special apochromatic design (APO) to deliver images with a natural color balance. The Golden Eagle 15-60x52 Riflescope comes with Vortex’s VIP Unconditional Lifetime Warranty.

Superior Optics

The Golden Eagle 15-60x52 Riflescope lenses are fully multi-coated with proprietary XR Plus anti-reflection coatings for maximum transmission and minimum glare. The APO system combines with the HD lenses for images with higher color contrast, sharper images, and superior light transmission. The coating application process uses plasma technology for unparalleled precision coating durability and performance. The illuminated reticle was designed to provide precise aiming even in low light conditions.

ECR-1 MOA Reticle

The Vortex Golden Eagle HD 15-60x52 Riflescope contains the ECR-1 (Enhanced Crosshair Reticle) that is designed to maximize long-distance shooting and ranging abilities. The reticle is placed in the second focal plane where the scale maintains the same ideally sized appearance. It was hash-marked using MOA based subtension lines for ranging, holdover, and wind corrections; the ultra-precision laser etching on the glass reticle is kept to the tightest tolerances and are superbly accurate up to 40x magnification. The Golden Eagle’s crosshair has a max elevation adjustment level of 55 MOA and a max windage adjustment of 45 MOA.

Durable Build

Constructed out of aircraft-grade aluminum, this Vortex Optics Riflescope is a 30mm single-piece tube designed to maximize alignment for improved accuracy and optical performance. ArmorTek exterior coating protects against scratches, oil, and dirt while O-ring seals and Argon gas purging create a waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof body.

Internal Mechanisms

The Golden Eagle rifle scope is equipped with an extra-fine resolution turret that allows a resolute increment of adjustment of just 0.125 MOA per click. This enables you to make extremely small adjustments to help you fine tune every shot. In addition to the extra-fine resolution turret there is an optional 10 MOA windage turret that is specially designed for dialing a full 10 MOA revolution of windage. An Aperture Stop Ring (ASR) broadens the depth of focus by allowing you to observe down range mirage and other wind indicators more easily all while keeping the target in focus.

Vortex Golden Eagle 15-60x52 Rilescope (ECR-1 MOA Reticle)

Vortex Golden Eagle HD 15-60x52 Riflescope (ECR-1 MOA Reticle) SKU: TCS-1501

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic at 1000yds I needed more power for 1000yd F Class. Generally at power over 42x, the clarity goes South. Not so with the Golden Eagle. Clarity is excellent at all settings. I'm loving the 1/8 MOA Simple reticle. Especially at distance. It will get a little dark at 60x in low light, but just dial it back and it's good again The fine crosshairs are also a big plus for long range as they do not block out my aiming point. I don't dial windage often, I hold off. Tracking is 100% spot on. It has never moved from zero. Can highly recommend this scope for target work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great long range rifle scope The golden eagle has great glass. Extremely clear and crisp. Parallax adjustments allow for a full range of shooting distances without min/maxing. Turrets adjust well and hold their settings. Easy to re-zero. the only negative feedback that I have is that the 'clicks' on the turrets are not very crisp. Remember to get a very good set of rings to go with this scope so that you are straight and true on the rifle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mounted on a Vudoo .22 single shot. Really like the zoom in for 50 yard targets in the ARA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scope I have I can clearly see mounying bolt for brackets that hold power wires up 400 yards away and can tell they are square bolt heads. Amazing scope. Very easy to use, tracks like it should and I love the screw in lens covers. Great scope for someone looking to step up their long range game

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good scope for more serious benchrest and long distance shooters

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My F Class Open Scope If you're not in the position to spend the extra $ on a Night Force then jump on a Golden Eagle deal when you have a chance. I've shot using various scopes and I honestly can't complain about anything on the Vortex Golden Eagle. Plenty of power for long-range shooting (i.e., 1000 yds out to mile). Great scope for your long gun aspirations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent in day light The reticle is very light in color and hard to see on night shoots with electric lights.
