Looking for a scope that punches above its weight?
4-16x44 Guided Overview
Superb tracking accuracy of Helix scopes
The latest addition to our lineup, the 4-16×44 Helix FFP offers all the brilliant features and rugged reliability that the 6-24×50 does, but with a distinct advantage: This is the lightest, most compact scope we have made to date.
We’ve aimed to keep things simple, but have focused on intuitive features and precision internals to give you peace of mind, whether you are cranking your turrets for a long shot, or following a deer through the trees at 4x magnification.
The ever-popular APR-2D family of reticles provide everything you need in a sensible layout, thanks to valuable input from experienced Pro Staff and customer feedback, and the large internal elevation travel range makes this a serious contender for long-range shooters needing an affordable, lightweight riflescope. Don’t overlook the little guy – He punches well above his weight!
Element Optics have designed the Helix in a way that puts the important things first. Features such as clear glass, smart reticles, and a turret system superior to other products in the same price class really make this scope a one for all.
The Element Optics turret system has been upgraded from your stock-standard sporting optic to feature stainless steel internals for resistance against wear-and-tear when dialing regularly.
The tool-free turrets and zero-stop mechanism give you high end features without breaking the bank, and the First Focal Plane reticle ensures precise reticle calibration at all magnifications.
Element Optics have also introduced meticulous quality control checks to give you peace of mind when taking that 1000 yarder. If something were to go wrong the Platinum Lifetime Warranty has you covered.

APR-2D Reticle (Etched glass)
APR stands for “All-Purpose Reticle”, and that’s the concept behind the design of the APR C & D variants.
The “D” is the “dirty” more complex of the two, with holdover dots extending down in a ‘Christmas Tree’ pattern for more precise long-range holds. The fine centre dot draws your eye away from the distraction of the markings for those who plan to dial instead of hold, but a whole host of features are there for those who wish to make use of them.
MIL-SCALE: The Mil-Scale on the horizontal & vertical crosshairs allow the shooter to measure objects downrange and quickly make adjustments. With one division equalling one click, the guesswork is gone.
EXTENSIVE HOLDOVER DOTS: Holdover dots allow the shooter to hold with precision when there is no time to dial. Extreme Long Range shooters can also accurately call points of impact and make quick adjustments.
NUMBERED MARKINGS: Numbers on both the horizontal and vertical axis allow shooters to quickly find hold points in pressure situations like PRS/NRL matches.
TAPERED BARS: Bars on the left, right & bottom of the reticle taper out to the edge of your field of view, drawing your eye to the centre at all magnifications without becoming too thick or thin.
About the Designer: The APR reticles were designed by Matt Dubber, a hunter & competitive shooter from South Africa. Matt competes around the world across various disciplines including Benchrest, NRL & Speed Shooting, and enjoys long-range hunting with airguns & centerfires in South Africa for his YouTube channel, AirArmsHuntingSA
