Jim Leatherwood’s Automatic Ranging and Trajectory riflescope (simply known as the A.R.T. scope among tactical shooters) of the early 1960s literally took the guess work out of long range shooting. All a shooter had to do was zoom in on an object of known size…steady the aim…and take the shot. Built around what he called a “Camputer”, the scope automatically compensated for both the range and for the trajectory of the bullet.
To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the A.R.T. design, Hi-Lux Optics is pulling out all stops to combine all of the latest Leatherwood A.R.T. technology and advanced modern features to produce an all new version of the M-1200 – the A.R.T. Extreme Long Range model.
This 6-24x50mm A.R.T. scope is truly designed and built for the shooter looking to take those shots out to 1,000 yards…and even a bit farther.
The new M-1200 ART-XLR features a bigger and brighter 30mm tube, plus incorporates a larger and beefier cam ranging system that can be calibrated for most rifles in calibers ranging from .223 Remington to the big .50 BMG models – automatically compensating for bullet trajectory from 300 to 1,200 meters. A stronger mount also offers additional external windage adjustment – something that’s very often needed when shots begin to exceed a half-mile. The M-1200 ART-XLR also comes with a new illuminated etched glass reticle, with built in ranging features and the Hi-Lux “No Math Mil-Dot” system for those who want to know the range. Each click of the target style adjustment turrets moves point of impact 0.1 mil, and the scope comes with a new side focus parallax adjustment.
Like all Hi-Lux Optics rifle scopes, this state-of-the-art Auto Ranging and Trajectory model features photographic quality lenses that are fully multi-coated for optimum light transmission. The scope comes with a Fast Focus eye-piece for multi-shooter use, Tri-Center coil spring tension on the erector tube for positive click adjustment, and a tough external finish for long lasting good looks. The all new M-1200 ART-XLR retails for $635 and comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
The first 500 of the New M-1200 ART-XLR scopes will be marked “Limited Edition James Leatherwood Commemorative” in honor of the late Jim Leatherwood – Reserve Yours Today!
