KONUSPRO M-30 1X-6X-24X
Variable power scopes with low magnification ranges and small objective diameters are usually the choice for rifles used in thick cover when shots at game come quickly and with little warning. A close range snap shot is easier to make without a bunch of magnification narrowing the field of view and, well, magnifying gun wobble. Plus, aiming and shooting with both eyes open is ore natural when one of them isn't looking at a world that's nine times larger than life.
Scopes with 1x-4x and more recently 1x-6x magnification ranges have traditionally served atop dangerous-game rifles and lever-actions, where their smaller footprints and lighter weights don't alter gun balance and handling as much as heavier scopes with more magnification, longer tubes and wider objectives. Today hunters will find these scopes just as well suited for ars and single-shot rifles chambered for straightwall cartridges.

The Konuspro M-30 1x-6x24mm from Italian optics company Konus is an affordable option for any of these rifles. Some of its features - such as a 30mm main tube and a well-designed reticle with dual-color illumination- may come as a surprise, considering its relatively low MSRP of less that ß 360.
The first thing I question about any scope, but especially those with less expensive price tags, is durability. Like an increasing number of budget-priced optics, the M-30 is manufactured in China, but it has the type of construction and material to make it last. The one-piece tube is nitrogen-purged and O-ring sealed to amake ti waterproof and prevent internal fogging. The reticle is etched on glass to withstand recoil and shock from other sources like accidental falls in the field. Konus buits the M-30 with a lifetime warranty against defects in the sope's material and workmanship.

Next, I look at a scope's erector and turret system: teh precision and consistency with wich it adjustmentes and its ability to reourd and hold zero. I tested the M-30 at 10 M.O.A. a click values by sooting a box that included six, five-shot groups in total, the drill required 20 MOA of elevation adjustments and another 30 MOA of windage adjustments. Individual groups mandated elevation and windage adjustments of 5-10 MOA in order to hit the intended area of the target.

While I felt some slack to the left and right of each tick mark on the turrets when making adjustemnts, the M-30 tracked well. The center of each group fell within 5 MOA of the spot predicted by its click values. The last set of adjustmentes returned the scope to zero, and the final group overlapped the first. During the next month I continued to use the M-30 mounted on a Bushmaster Minimalist-SD in 300 AAC Blackout, and more than 200 rounds later I had no reason to touch the turrets. The scope helds zero perfectly.
