Field & Stream Picks the Best New Hunting Gear of 2011

Best New Scope: Minox ZA5 1.5-8x32mm With Versa-Plex Reticle

As constitutionally suspicious as I am of the whole concept of one-size-fits-all, I must say that Minox’s effort at building a scope for use on a shotgun, mountain rifle, or big-bore dangerous-game stopper is remarkably successful. The 1-inch-tube matte-black scope is light and compact. The Versa-Plex combines a circle reticle, like that on a turkey scope, with the duplex crosshairs used for big game. Windage and elevation each have 90 minutes of travel in finger--adjustable positive 1⁄4 MOA clicks. More notable is the range of magnification from 1.5X to 8X, which gives the scope its true versatility. —Thomas McIntyre
