Element Optics riflescopes and optics coming to South Africa

 In Blog

For a long time we have known that something special was going to hit the market in the riflescopes and optics world. FX Airguns has given small clues on social media, making all of us VERY curious about what it may be.

On the morning of 20th February 2020, we woke up to a new optics company called Element Optics.

 The story behind Element Optics

Element Optics started with a team of experienced shooters consisting of Matt Dubber, Ted Bier, Shane Kellar and Johan Axelsson, coming together to develop a new scope range based on their experience and knowledge.

These shooters have plenty of international experience through participating in competitions and acquiring titles, knowing what it takes to make a proper quality scope.

As a shooter for FX Airguns, I have been following the development of these scopes for a while and I am extremely excited to see them available in the market at last.

A closer look at the Helix, Titan and Nexus Riflescopes

Element Optics has released three new scopes in their range: The Helix, Titan, and their flagship scope, the Nexus. All three of these riflescopes are tailored for rimfire, centrefire and airgun use. Element has included a platinum lifetime warranty with each purchase to assure you that they stand firmly behind their brand when it comes to service and quality.

 Let us take a closer look at these three scopes from Element Optics:

HELIX

For the price point, the Helix offers you so much more than its closest competitor in the market. This scope has clear glass and unique reticle designs.

Fitted with stainless steel interiors, the Helix has durability to last. The tool-free turret systems are easy to adjust without any hassles and are dead accurate, and tight tracking tolerances enable you to hit your target with every trigger pull. If you want a return to zero, then you can make use of the solid zero stop system that is part of this scope.

The Helix is a second focal plane scope that is calibrated at (24x) and makes it easy to use at (12x) and (6x).

Here are the main features on the Helix:

  • 30mm Main Body Tube
  • Compact, Lightweight Design

TITAN

The Titan is a scope that will intrigue all competition shooters and hunters. The Titan is fitted with a 34mm tube to accommodate for greater elevation and windage travel. The objective lens has a diameter of 56mm to allow for maximum light transmission and ED glass to give you that crisp clarity that you are looking for.

The turret system is also fitted with stainless steel internals to support the maximum amount of dialling. The Titan is bulky and has very grippy turrets for easy and quick adjustments. Every time you turn the dial, you will be pleased with the clean, crisp clicks the Titan gives you and on-the-mark precision.

The solid zero-stop fitted will also make it easy to return to zero in situations where you need to make adjustments quickly. The Titan is a first focal plane scope and has a magnification range of 5-25 to give you a clear view on those long-range shots.

When you pick this scope up for the first time, you will notice that it is very lightweight at under 800 grams. The Turret system is unique and has an incredibly positive report once you start turning the dial.
