About VictOptics Riflescope

Q1: What is LPVO?

LPVO(Low Power Variable Optics) is very popular in whatever hunting, tactical or competition for AR and carbine users. It helps to turn your rifle into both short-range and long-range solution for shooting.

Q2: Will it fit a 24mm killflash on the S6 1-6X24 SFP LPVO or do i need a 30 mm?

Hi, the S6 LPVO riflescope has a 30mm tube, so you can go for the 30mm killfalsh.

Q3: How many joules can the VictOptics 2-6x32mm bezel hold? For Air rifle 5.5 Rossi Dione 3G.

Hi friend, I’m afraid that VictOptics 2-6×32 can’t hold it, it’s mainly for Airsoft, but you can check scopes from our main brand Vector Optics.

Q4: I bought a Victoptics PAC 3-9x40 OPSL20 from you, 10.is it a MIL reticle? or MOA? what are the dimensions of the lines in the reticle? Thank you for your help..

Hi friend, its reticle VMD-2 is a MOA reticle, for dimensions, check out the reticle picture here.

Q5: How come the scope does not hold a group of hits?

  • First, please examine the factors below:
  1. Is it your first time shooting that scope not able to hold zero with a group issue ?
  2. Your rifle and caliber
  3. Your shooting distance
  4. The group result on shooting target paper (Or do you remember the point of impact’s spread deviation?Right? Left ? Up? Down?)


  • Second, many issues that maycause poor bullet grouping:
  1. Be sure that rings are correctly torqued to 15-18 in/lbs.
  2. Be sure that all screws onthe rifle’s action are properly tightened.
  3. Be surethe rifle barrel and action are clean and free of excessive oil or copper fouling.
  4. Maintain a good shooting technique and use a solid rest.
  5. Some rifles and ammunition don’t work well together—try different ammunition and see if accuracy improves.
  6. Be careful, scope maybe with “parallax issue” if not adjusted well.


If the scope still cant hold a group of hits, please contact [email protected] for support.

Q6: What is that honey comb like thing on rifle scopes?

Hi friend, the honey comb is a sunshade or killflash for your scope lens. It reduce glare and obscure and hide the flash or shininess of the lens when looking at it from the front. It is a must for tactical purpose.

Q7: Wire reticle vs Glass Etched reticle vs Fiber reticle, how to choose??

Here you can find the answers:

Pros Cons
Wire reticle 1. Low manufacturing cost

2. Provide no obstruction to light passing through the scope

1. The shock resistance is weaker

2. The wire crosshairs are easy to get damaged

3. Unable to form complex reticle patterns

Etched reticle 1. Advanced technique etching

2. Better shock resistance and durability

3. Can realize complex reticle patterns

4. Reticle lines can be made thinner than wire reticles

1. High manufacture cost

2. Easy to accumulate dust and fog during assembly

Fiber reticle 1. Very bright, can be used under the strongest sunlight

2. Can rapidly acquire  targets at 1x.

3. Very little obstruction to the light transmission rate of the scope

1. High manufacturing cost

2. Cannot achieve complex reticle patterns

Q8: How much does a MOA measure in terms of distance?

If you are using yards, then 1 MOA approximately equals to 1 inch (1.047”) at 100 yards, 2 inches at 200 yards and so on; If you are using meters, then 1 MOA approximately equals to 2.9cm at 100m, 5.8cm at 200m, and so on.

Q9: What does it mean of “1 click =1/4 MOA @ 100yd” on the turret cap?

1/4 MOA is 1/4th of an inch at 100 yards. So if the bullet impact is an inch high at 100 yards, you need to adjust 4 clicks down to correct it.

When you know your bullet drop, you can make appropriate adjustments to ensure your target is hit next time.

Q10: MIL means Milliradian, but what is Milliradian?

MIL or MRAD stands for Milliradian and represents 1/1000 of a radian, it is mostly used in military and tactical precision riflescopes.

Q11: How much is 1 MIL at a certain distance?

1 MIL is 1 meter at 1000 meters, and 1 yard(36”) at 1000 yards. Then 1 MIL is approximately 10cm at 100m, 20cm at 200m and so on.

Q12: Which measurement system is better? MOA or MIL?

It’s more of a habitual thing. If you are used to the imperial system, then you might find MOA more suitable to you; If you are comfortable with the metric system, then you might choose MIL over MOA.

Q13: Which optics you recommend for airsoft DMR? For shooting at 70-100m?

Hi, for CQB at 70-100m shooting range, our S6 1-6×24 LPVO scope would be perfect.

Q14: How to zero a rifle scope at 100 yards?

  1. Set up a stable shooting bench or rest to support the rifle.
  2. Establish a 100-yard target, precisely level it in line with your rifle scope.
  3. Take a shot at the center of the target, ensuring that the rifle is correctly aimed.
  4. Adjust the scope until the crosshairs are centered on the bullet hole.
  5. Fire another shot, and repeat this process until the bullet hits the center of the target.
  6. Once the scope is correctly zeroed at 100 yards, check that it remains accurate at 50 yards, 150 yards, and beyond.

Q15: How far is a 3-9x40 scope good for?

In general, a 3-9×40 rifle scope is considered ideal for shooting at distances up to 300-400 yards for hunting and target shooting purposes. However, some factors such as the calibre of the rifle, the shooting conditions and the accuracy of the rifle need to be taken into account.

Q16: What is an AO scope?

“AO” means Adjustable Objective. Some Victoptics scopes (for example OPSL09) have an adjustable objective ring, by rotating the objective ring you can adjust the focus and eliminate parallax.

About VictOptics Red Dot Sight

Q1: Why does my red dot sight look blurry?

It might because of astigmatism problem, kindly check our blog: Why does my red dot sight have a blurred aiming point?

Q2: How come the reflex sight does not hold a group of hits?

  • The reflex sight does not hold a group of hits at the first time shooting

Please examine the factors below:

  1. Be sure that all screws onthe rifle’s action are properly tightened.
  2. Be surethe rifle barrel and action are clean and free of excessive oil or copper fouling.
  3. Maintain a good shooting technique and use a solid rest.
  4. Some rifles and ammunition don’t work well together—try different ammunition and see if accuracy improves.
  5. Be careful, the reflex sightmay be with a “parallax issue” if not adjusted well.
  • The reflex sight does not hold a group of hits after using for a while

Please check:

  1. Your rifle and caliber (whether the rifle’s caliber is too large and the rifle has too much recoil )
  2. Your shooting distance (whether the shooting distance is too far away from the set hit point)

P.S. whether it’s at first-time shooting or not, you should always check the point of impact’s spread deviation, and make adjustments accordingly.


Please check the upper factors and make some adjustments, if the reflex sight still cant hold a group of hits, please contact [email protected] for support.

Q3: Tube red dot vs open reflex, which is better?

The difference between an open and tube reflex sight:

  1. Size & Weight
  2. Field of View
  3. Application
  4. Water and Dust Resistance

A tube red dot sight is an enclosed red dot sight, usually bigger and heavier than an open style red dot sight. It is widely used on rifles and shotguns because it looks more like a traditional but smaller scope. While an open red dot is more likely being used on handguns due to its compact size and wide field of view. And mini reflex sights are especially perfect for handguns and fast-moving shooting competition.

Both tube and open red dot have unlimited eye relief, many levels of brightness setting, and compatible with magnifiers and night vision scopes. However, a tube reflex sight is more resistant to extreme weathers, because the enclosed tube red dot are filled with neutral gas to prevent it from dirt and splashing water.

Besides, though the elevation and windage are both adjustable on tube and open red dot, many shooters find that the Capped Adjustment on a tube reflex sight is easier to adjust with their fingers and nails, while it will definitely need a hex key for open red dot sights.

Q4: What is MOA on a red dot sight?

MOA stands for “minute of angle,” which is a unit of measurement used in optics to describe the angular size of a target or the adjustments made to a sight. In the context of a red dot sight, MOA is used to describe the size of the aiming point and the adjustments made to the sight to zero it in.

Specifically, MOA is used to describe the size of the red dot reticle in a red dot sight. A red dot sight with a 1 MOA reticle will display a dot that covers 1 inch of the target at 100 yards. Similarly, a 2 MOA reticle will cover 2 inches of the target at 100 yards, and so on.

MOA is also used to describe the adjustments made to the sight to zero it in on a target. Each click of the adjustment knob on a red dot sight typically corresponds to a certain number of MOA, such as 1/4 MOA or 1/2 MOA. This allows the shooter to make precise adjustments to the sight to ensure that the aiming point is on target.

In summary, MOA is a unit of measurement used in optics to describe the size of the aiming point in a red dot sight and the adjustments made to the sight to zero it in on a target.

Here is a red dot MOA chart for your reference.

Q5: Can your red dot glass withstand the impact of Airsoft BB?

Yes, all Victoptics red dot scopes are designed for Airsoft, airguns, hunting rifles and more. They can withstand that impact.

Q6: What is auto-light technology?

With Auto Light Sensor technology, the brightness of the red dot changes according to the level of ambient light to suit different shooting conditions. Of course, auto light sensor can be turned off if you prefer to adjust the brightness manually.

Q7: What is Multi-Reticle technology?

Multi-Reticle technology is a breakthrough from the traditional single red dot pattern based on the use of direct light source technology. The holographic reticle pattern is applied to an open mini red dot or a closed tube red dot, allowing the user to choose from multiple reticles or aiming points such as crosshairs, dots and other shapes to suit different shooting environments.

Q8: What is the FOOTPRINT of a red dot sight?

The ‘Footprint’ of a red dot sight refers to the shape and size of the base of the sight to ensure that it can be mounted correctly on a particular launcher. Specifically, this term is often used to describe the geometry of the base of the scope (usually rectangular or circular), as well as the number of set screws required to mount the scope and the position of the locating pins.

When purchasing a red dot sight, it is important to know the footprint of in order to select a red dot mount base that is compatible with your pistol. If the red dot’s footprint does not match your pistol, then you will not be able to mount the scope or may need to use some adapters to ensure that the red dot is securely attached to the pistol.

Q9: What is night vision red dot sight?

Red dot scopes generally have multiple illumination settings, and some red dot scopes will come with one or more night vision (NV) settings. Newcomers often mistake the (NV) setting for night vision scope, but this is not the case. If your red dot has a night vision setting, this means that it is compatible with night vision device.

Many people often mistake their red dot for being broken because the collimator does not appear when the red dot is turned on. However, if you put on a pair of night vision devices at this point you will clearly see the collimator. The (NV) setting on the red dot is mainly for tactical use and for some night hunting use. If your red dot sight has a night vision setting and you are unable to see with your night vision device at this time, then there may be a quality problem with your red dot sight.

Q10: What is 1/3 cowitness height?

1/3 cowitness height is a type of iron sight commonly used on firearms. It is a method of aligning the iron sights with a red dot sight or other optic. The sight picture is designed so that the iron sights sit 1/3 of the way up from the bottom of the optic, allowing for a clear view of the target area.
