Leica Magnus i The second generation For The Most Demanding Hunter Close Proximity, Wide Field Of View The world through Leica eyes What makes Leica riflescopes so special is their superior field of view. When combined with effective stray-light suppression, excellent transmission and maximum contrast for bright images, this guarantees safe target identification in every situation, even when conditions are difficult. Enjoy freedom from distracting keyhole effects when it really counts. The extremely wide field of view provides a subjectively higher image brightness than smaller fields of view, and the Magnus i’s greater field of view gives you a safer hunting experience. The greater magnification range ensures an enormous application spectrum and makes the Magnus i the best riflescope for every kind of hunting. The Magnus 1.5 – 10x42 i, for example, is the perfect companion for driven hunts, stalking, and hunting from a high seat, as well for mountain hunts. At the same time, high technical demands had to be satisfied to produce the Magnus i series, so that uncompromising quality and 100% reliability are guaranteed – giving you both maximum flexibility and precision for close as well as long-range shots. Bright Reticle Illumination Convincing In All Light Conditions Functionality and ease of handling are among the most important aspects of product development. This is where Leica combines years of experience with technological innovation, with the result that the Leica Magnus i riflescope series allows safe hunting even in unfavourable light conditions. This is ensured by the exceptionally precise adjustment mechanism that regulates the illuminated dot. The sensitive brightness control features a day/night setting and is adjustable in 60 micro steps. With the press and hold function, you can run through the whole range and store your last brightness setting. On top of that, the reticle’s intelligent auto on/off function prolongs battery life considerably, by switching off the illumination when not required, for instance when in an unsuitable shooting position. The challenge of developing the perfect illuminated dot lies in finding the balance between “as small as possible” and “sensibly large”. Leica has found the solution with a very small illuminated dot that is so fine that it covers the target only minimally, but is at the same clearly visible because of its crispness. For the reticles, Leica relies on a technology known as “phase gratings”, where nano structures are etched into the glass, shaping the light with high efficiency. That’s how you keep the critical overview and always identify every important detail – for a successful hunt. Optical Performance Even In The Most Difficult Lighting Situations Creating a brilliant image every time - the most important features of all Magnus i riflescopes are their excellent light transmission and extraordinarily high contrast. What's new The Magnus models of the second generation impress by their proven quality Leica stands for – uncompromising high-performance optics, robust mechanics and intuitive handling. Unlike the previous models, every model of the Magnus i range features new, smarter detail solutions such as turret scale zeroing without tools for convenient sighting-in and optimised reticle coverage. Leica’s engineers not only cut energy consumption, thus significantly extending battery life, they also made it easier to replace the battery. The familiar, conveniently selectable day/night illumination now offers additional protection against accidental resetting.
