Ever heard of Tract Optics? Time to take a close look at the Tract Toric, a 30mm tactical scope that combines top-shelf glass with exceptional build quality.

sent this scope to West Desert Shooter (https://www.youtube.com/user/1modusman1),
who then sent it to me for review. Many thanks to those guys for getting this scope in my hands, because it's a real gem. A brief survey of the precisely machined and polished exterior provides the first clue that the Tract Toric is not your run-of-the-mill tactical scope. Built in Japan, every dial and knob turns smoothly and precisely, each one seemingly requiring the exact right amount of torque to spin. The elevation and windage turrets both feature a large locking knob, easy to extend and retract. The elevation turret also includes a rev-limiting zero stop, a nice upscale feature. Tracking? Spot on.
At any magnification the image is crystal-clear from edge to edge, sharp and colorful. The Schott lenses provide enough resolution to see miniscule details and mirage, even at long ranges and large adjustments. To test the scope in the real world, we set up a 30"x40" AR500 target 1,280 yards away and fired 6.5 Creedmoor at it. Just a few elevation clicks of correction and we started ringing the steel. I should mention that this was immediately after zeroing the rifle at 100 yards. One hundred yards straight to 1,280. That's a testament to the scope all by itself.
The Toric is an FFP scope, available in both MRAD and MOA variants. Both use a hash-type illuminated reticle with etched numbers at intervals.
Every rifle scope is a compromise of characteristics, and the Toric is no exception, sacrificing elevation and windage adjustment range in favor of (probably) larger lenses and/or a thicker tube. If you buy a Toric, make sure you buy an elevation-compensating mount or base like the 20-MOA Warne mount we used. Aside from the limited adjustment range, I have nothing but praise for the Toric, and heck, the restriction seems like the right compromise to make if the image is this good.
