The Best LPVO Scopes

To add flexibility to your rifle or hunting set-up, you may want to consider a Low Power Variable Optic (LPVO).

These versatile scopes are perfect entry-level optics, with magnification ranges from 1-4x, 1-6x, or 1-8x. Most LPVO scopes will start at a true 1x range and increase magnification from there, with intended use for targets under 200-yards.

The best uses for low power variable optics are hunting, 2 gun, 3 gun competitions, or just for target plinking. A low-powered variable optic scope can be a second focal plane or first focal plane reticle, have an illuminated reticle, and be either MOA or MRAD.

Choosing an LPVO scope you actually understand how to use is crucial to consistently impacting targets at long ranges and wringing as much joy as possible out of your range time.
