Konus Pro F30 4-16x52 Side Focus parallax - Red-Blue Illuminated Etched Glass Ballistic 550 reticle First Focal Plane Rifle Scope
The Konus Pro F30 FFP offers first focal plane technology.
The big advantage of FFP is the fact that the image and reticle increase/decrease always in the same proportion. This allows fast and easy drop compensation and range finding.
The Konus F30 FFP features an illuminated glass etched 550 Ballistic reticle with illuminated circle and side turret focus parallax and illumination turret offset on the eyebell.
Mount rings to fit it onto a rifle ARE NOT included
Well sized tactical turrets offer a precise 1/4 MOA adjustment (7.25mm) at 100 yards
Zero Resettable Locking Turrets allow for quick, repeatable adjustment of your point of impact.
Rugged built, up to date design and knurlings which fit for handling with gloves offers secure and easy use in the field.
The Konus Pro F30 FFP is made of a solid 1 piece 30mm high grade aluminium main tube with fully multi coated lenses.
If you need .22 rimfire 3/8", airgun 11mm, 20mm weaver/picatinny mount rings you will need to purchase them in addition to the scope. See shop and related items and look for high profile models for 30mm tube. Please ask if unsure. We can also help with picatinny adapter bases for rifles such as Tikka, SAKO, CZ, Ruger, Remington, Howa, Weatherby, Marlin etc (See Britannia Rails section for many picatinny adapter bases)

Konus Ballistic 550 Reticle - Blue and Red Illuminated - Etched Glass - First Focal Plane with bubble level anti-canting system
When a reticle is placed on the first focal plane, on the contrary, the target-to-reticle ratio never changes and you can therefore utilize your riflescope at any magnification while determining your distance from the target.
The 550 reticle provides several aiming points out to 550 yards to extend your range and improve your accuracy, while taking even the most difficult shots.
The addition of an illuminated dot allows for fast and accurate target acquisition, as well as being an excellent choice for low light conditions or for shooting against a very dark target.
The intensity of the illumination can be adjusted up or down for any lighting conditions.
The 550 is designed for use with centerfire rifles for long range. The reticle corresponds with the most popular loads on the market.
Lateral hash marks provide compensation for strong crosswinds to further enhance the marksmanship of the hunter.
For optimum precision, the riflescope should be set to its highest magnification during the zeroing process.
Anti Canting Bubble System
Precision at long range requires a tilt free (anti canted) position of the gun. The KonusPro F30 series features an anti-canting level bubble built into the scope to provide instant correction of a canted rifle. While looking through the eyepiece, simply align the bubble through the centre lines of the tube, and your level. The bubble system can be used with or without illumination
Benefits of Glass Etched Reticles and Illumination
Glass-etched reticles are superior to wire for several reasons, most notable is how much more crisp, fine and clean your view is when you look thorough the scope.
A glass etched reticle, also cannot be broken. Anyone who has shot enough has seen a wire reticle actually break within the reticle field. As the reticle design is etched into the reticle lens, it is static and cannot physically be broken.
All illuminated scopes with glass-etched reticles have the added benefit of zero internal light reflection which occurs to some extent in illuminated scopes with wire reticles.
This superior design requires an additional cost, but even if you don’t plan to use the illumination, the glass-etched reticle is a feature with value to the shooter.
Illumination comes into its own when shooting targets that are either naturally dark or made dark by light conditions such as shadow, dawn dusk, very bright light or night shooting with lamps or night vision kit.
Without Illumination a black reticle can be very hard to make out against the target. Illumination fixes this problem and gives immediate contrast. Adjust intensity according to the light conditions.

Parallax Focus control
Parallax effect is the term that describes the difference in angles between objects that are seen up close and those seen far away. When you look at telephone poles passing by on the side of the road, those closest to your car seem to pass very fast, while the ones far away seem to go very slow. That difference is due to the parallax effect.
The reticle in your scope is like a telephone pole that's very close. If you move your head on the stock while watching the target through the scope the reticle may seem to move, wobble or blur against the target. That affects where you perceive the aim point to be, and that affects your accuracy.
Parallax focus correction adjustment reduces this phenomenon to the greatest extent possible.
Parallax focus correction therefore is a must for anyone attempting to use either a high magnification scope, shooting drastically different yardages with the same scope or anyone attempting to shoot at extremely close ranges or extremely long ranges. Especially so if it is a combination of these factors.
This scope features Parallax focus correction by 40mm side turret
Note - Compatible with the large 135mm Konus sidewheel - optional extra. See Konus section in shop for it.
