The new 4-16x44mm SmartScope from Laxco Inc. promises smart targeting and smart hunting. According to Andrew Parsons, the scope’s designer, the SmartScope figures all the calculations, coefficients and adjustments automatically once you input the yardage and windage. “That way you don’t miss,” Parsons said. “You don’t have to do any of the math. It does all the work for you.”
This auto-targeting digital riflescope also features a built-in rangefinder and automatic bullet-drop compensation, and it’s powered by two small rechargeable batteries that give shooters at least 30 hours of constant targeting. Under normal use, the batteries easily last an entire weekend.
This fully integrated scope is durable, waterproof and fogproof, and uses a standard Picatinny MIL-STD-1913 scope mounting base.
