Crimson Trace Scopes Feature Maxium Optic Clarity

Every Crimson Trace® Riflescope is fully multi-coated with our proprietary MOC lens coatings. These coatings are engineered to enhance performance in each series of Riflescopes. By optimizing the light that passes through the optical system, the resulting image is sharp, natural, and glare-free. Additionally, these coatings provide a protective armor against adverse environmental conditions the scope will experience through its service life.

What MOC does:
  • Scratch Resistance
  • Glare Reduction
  • Color Correction
  • Enhances Light Transmission
  • Increases Clarity & Resolution
  • Improves Low Light Performance
