ATN OPTICAL QUALITY

OPTICS
Standard and ATN optics

Image quality depends on lens design, glass grade, manufacturing tolerances and coating. In order to be in line with well-known premium optical producers we could not cut any corners. ATN lenses are made from the highest-grade optical glass. Our optical designs are calculated with the latest computer software available. We measure our optical tolerances to .0001". We then multi-coat our lenses with our own proprietary coatings that are specifically designed to allow for maximum light transmission.

INNOVATION&EXCELLENCE

Regardless of how much a person will spend for a scope, $30.00 or $1500.00, the basic design is typically the same. The Cam tube is placed and moved within Outer tube. The Adjusting system is held by one or two 7-pound springs. This has been the standard in the industry for many years.
ATN has established itself as the world leader of night vision riflescopes. We decided to transfer some of our creative night vision designs into our daytime scopes. Due to the lay-out of night vision riflescopes, reticles are 14 times smaller and 10 times more precise then daytime scopes. We used the same innovative "push and pull" mechanism with silicone padding that is in our night vision devices for the Professional series scopes. This created windage and elevation adjustments that are 10,000 % more reliable then other scopes with click adjustments of 1/8" MOA at 100 yards.


LENS COATING

Lens coating

The ATN Professional series riflescopes are the only scopes in the world with the Everlight and Proshield Lens Coatings. We developed and formulated these two exclusive lens coatings specifically for the Professional series.
The revolutionary Everlight coating is designed to enhance the resolution and contrast of your image in extremely bright conditions. When there is too much light you will normally notice a degraded optical image, which is prevented by our Everlight coating. Some of the leading scope manufacturers have been installing less reliable mechanical aperture shutters to compensate for this problem
The Proshield® coating is a mixture of anti-scratch, anti-condensation, anti-static and anti-glare coatings. In addition, a one-piece tubing and special seal makes the Professional series scopes truly durable and weather resistant.


ILLUMINATED RETICLE

You will never lose sight of your crosshairs due to darkness with any of the scopes in the ATN Professional line. Our illuminated reticle has a 10 position rheostat to adjust brightness from a well-defined black reticle for conditions to a glowing red reticle for low light conditions.

BULLET DROP COMPENSATOR

Bullet drop compensator

All of the professional lit-reticle riflescopes have a built in adjustment that compensates for bullet drop. The elevation dial is calibrated for various bullet drop increments depending on the scope. This innovation eliminates the need for complicated ballistic calculations and puzzling aiming patterns. In case the user needs to take a short at different distances, the alignment process is simplified to the quick turn of a knob.
Bullet drop compensation is only possible for certain caliber's, with specific weights and muzzle velocity:

Bullet drop compensation
Caliber Grain Muzzle Vel.
.223 Rem. (5.56mm) 55 3,240 ft./sec.
270 Win. 150 2850 ft./sec.
.308 Win. 165 2,520 ft./sec.
.300 Win Mag 200 2,830 ft./sec.
7mm Rem. 150 3110 ft./sec.
30-06 Springfield 165 2800 ft./se
.22-250 55 3680 ft./sec.
.243 Win 60 3600 ft./sec.
.50BMG 647 2850 ft./sec.

Note: Six interchangeable cams each designed for the above calibers are included with each Professional LU model. The 5x33L is calibrated for the .223 cartridge only.
