What is a rifle scope and how does it work?
The elementary function of a rifle scope is to help the shooter to aim the target more accurately.
It works nearly like a telescope. An objective lens that is present in front of the scope allows light rays to come inside the body of the scope. An ocular lens at the rear makes the aim visible to the shooter.
Between the objective lens and focus lens, there is an erector tube. The erector tube contains a magnification lens and assembly of reticle/ crosshair used to aim the firearm. As a magnification lens is present between objective and ocular lenses its change in magnification changes its position from objective and ocular lenses. When magnification increases it moves towards the objective lens and when someone decreases the magnification it moves away from the objective and towards the ocular lens. It means if someone has a 3X - 6X magnification range rifle scope the magnification lens is nearer to the objective lens at 6x and closer to the ocular lens at 3X.
If the reticle is mounted in front of the magnification lens the reticle (crosshair) does not change its position. The aim remains at the same relative position because of the change in the size of the crosshair. The crosshair does not magnify in this setting and the shooter sees an object of the same size no matter how much scope is magnified. This makes aiming more perfect.
The lenses of the scope are coated to avoid too much light to enter in the body of the scope. Because too when too much light enters in scope it brightens the image too much which makes it difficult to see for the shooter. The tube is cleaned and sealed to avoid rainwater to enter it and fogging the lens.
External parts functions
The external body of the rifle scope is made up of metal that holds all lenses. It has magnification adjustment knobs and lens adjustment on it to see a clear picture. Most rifle scopes are now made using aluminum which is lower in weight, more durable, and corrosion resistant.
The front of the scope is called the objective bell which holds an objective lens. The rear of the rifle scope is called the ocular bell because of holding the ocular lens. In the middle part, a spring and firearms are attached that hold the rifle.
Different types of adjustment knobs
Most rifle scopes have two or some have three adjustment knobs on them. Mostly hunter scopes have knobs that are capped. The shooter has to uncap the knob by moving the screw to reach the adjustment. But tactical longer-range rifle scopes with uncapped knobs are present quickly aiming and shooting the field.
Top Knob: This knob is located at top of the scope and is used to set the elevation, how high or low the fire will go.
Right knob: It is located on the right side of the scope and it decides how far left or right the bullet will strike.
Both knobs are adjusted relative to each other and set the cross-hair to position the target at the exact position.
Different types of rifle scopes and their uses
Fixed scope: It has fixed magnification. Zoom in and zoom out are present to see the object clearly which is at distance.
Variable scope: This rifle scope has variable magnification settings e.g. 3X, 4X, 5X, etc. The user can set magnification according to his need. It also has a zoom-in and zoom-out feature.
Night vision scope: this is specially designed for shooting in low light. It can also be used if you are hunting at night. It has an internal infrared illuminator that makes it easy to take aim at night also.
Long-range scope: this scope gives enough magnification to aim the object at a far distance very easily. You can aim 1000 yards far object with this scope very easily.
