Italian optical company Konus are mainly known for their solidly built and practically featured riflescopes but they also offer a large range of binoculars and other shooting accessories. For reasons unknown, when initially launched this monocular slipped by our attention but we’re very reliably informed it’s already become one of the top selling items of observation aids they offer.
Measuring 128mm - 165mm (due to the body extending when the zoom is used) it weighs 156-grams and is ideal to slip in a pocket for when you need make a quick scan of an area you’re operating over.
The monocular is extremely easy to use due to its advanced dual focusing system that offers both a fast and a fine focusing option. Should you need to look more closely at a target then you can quickly zoom in using the magnification ring positioned at the rear and directly in front of the generously sized fast focus ocular adjuster – the main focus being at the front. The toughened plastic body is rubber armoured at key points, covering the operational rings which are also ridged for a sure hold and ease of use. The ocular is capable of a good range of adjustment for attaining a proper in-view image and aided by its multi-coated lenses offers a bright sight picture. It’s also nitrogen purged to be fog proof and shockproof. FOV @ 1000m is 80.5m on 7x magnification and 45.5m on its highest setting. It has a roll down eyecup, tripod attachment point and comes with a hand lanyard plus Nylon carry case.
