NcStar has a wide variety of scopes for many applications. From scopes with illuminated crosshairs to scopes with integrated lasers, NcStar has something for everybody.

3-Rail Sighting System (Link)– NcStar introduced one of the most innovative scopes available today for tactical applications. The 3 Rail Sighting System is a modular design with accessory rails incorporated into the scope housing, including one along the top of the scope and one along each side. Now you can mount secondary sights and accessories right on the scope, such as Red Dot/Reflex sight, Laser sight and/or a Flashlight.

There are various options available with the 3 Rail Sighting System including illuminated crosshairs, variable power and 3 reticles (Mil-Dot, P4 Sniper and Rangefinder). All models have the Weaver base that enables the scope to easily fit any Weaver Style and Picatinny rails.

Scope Terminology

Adjustable Objective

An Adjustable Objective is a feature on a scope that allows you to correct for any parallax.  Some of our scopes have an adjustable ring around the objective lens housing (Ex. Shooter II Series), while others have a knob on the left side of the turret housing (Ex. Mark III Series).  Reducing parallax with an adjustable objective equates to greater shot precision. 

Coated Optics

Lens coatings reduce the amount of light reflection allowing more light to pass through the scope.  The more light that a scope can take in, the brighter the targeted image will be which is very important under low lighting conditions.  Most NcSTAR scopes are Fully Multi Coated to maximize light transmission.

Durable Construction

NcSTAR scopes are designed to withstand the toughest elements by using high quality aircraft grade aluminum with a hard anodized finish, providing a surface that is virtually rust and scratch proof. 

Exit Pupil

The exit pupil in an optics system is the circular beam of light being transmitted to your eye.  To find the size of the exit for your scope or binoculars simply take the diameter of the objective lens and divide it by the magnification. For example, a 4x30 scope would have an exit pupil of 7.5mm (30 divided by 4 equals 7.5).  The larger the exit pupil is, in relation to the entrance pupil of the eye, the brighter the image will be. 

 Eye Relief

Eye relief is the distance between the shooters eye and the ocular lens (eyepiece) in order to achieve a full field of view and a comfortable aiming position.  Some Scopes have longer eye relief than others depending upon the application they are intended for.  A pistol, for example, requires a scope with long or extended eye relief.  With a magnum rifle, having a little extra eye relief aids in the safety of the shooter’s eye.

Field of View (FOV)

Field of view for a scope or binoculars is the amount of area (in feet) visible from left to right typically at 100 yards.  At higher magnifications the field of becomes more narrow.  At low magnifications the field of view is wider.  For quick target acquisition at close range (under 100 yards) a very wide field of view is desired requiring a scope with low magnification. 


Scope magnification refers to the power size of the scope.  For example on 4x30 scope the magnification would be a 4 power.  In this case the object that you are viewing will appear to be 4 times closer than with the naked eye.  Lower powered scopes are most suitable for close range shooting, while high powered scopes are better for long range shooting. 

Objective Lens

The objective lens is the front lens of the scope (lens closest to the target).  The diameter of the objective lens is measured in millimeters.  For example, on a 3-9x42 scope the objective size is the represented just after the “x” in this case being 42 millimeters.  Larger objectives, such as a 50mm objective, allow for more light to pass through the scope equating to a brighter image.  The larger the objective the taller the mounting rings must be also.

 Ocular lens

The ocular lens (eye piece) is the lens that you look through to view your target.  Most ocular lens adjust in and out to sharpen the contrast of your reticle.  Once set, you should not have to adjust your reticle again.

Power Ring

Variable powered scopes (Ex. 3-9x42) have a power ring usually located directly in front of the ocular housing.  By twisting the power ring you can control the magnification setting.  So on a 3-9x42 scope you can zoom from 3 to 9 power and anywhere in between.  On a fixed powered scope, such as a 6x42, there will not be a power ring because the magnification is permanently set at 6 power.

Windage/Elevation Turret

The windage turret controls the left to right movement of the reticle, and is generally located on the right side of the scope.  The elevation turret controls the up and down movement of the reticle, and is generally located on the top of the scope.  NcSTAR offers a variety of scopes in 1/2, 1/4, and 1/8 MOA adjustments so you can choose the scope that’s right for you.

NcStar FAQ

Q - Are NcSTAR optics water proof, fog proof, and shock proof?

A-  All NcSTAR scopes are rigorously tested to stand up to the toughest conditions.  First,

all of our scopes are dry nitrogen purged expelling all oxygen making them

impervious to fog and moisture build up.  Next, our scopes are dunked in a 1 meter

tank of water to ensure that they are properly sealed and water tight.  The last phase is

shock testing.  Our scopes are mounted on a platform that replicates the recoil and

pressure of a .50 cal.  Should any of these features fail due to defect, we stand behind

our products 100%.


   Q -  My scope has run out of adjustment therefore I cannot zero it.  Is it defective?

   A - Chances are, your scope is NOT defective.  In many cases it is a problem with the

mount set-up.  Check to be sure that your mounts and rings are straight and properly

tightened.  Shimming the scope will likely solve the problem, as long as it is done

properly.  If you shim your scope improperly then internal damage may be the result.

If you are unsure how to properly shim a scope then consult a trusted gunsmith.   


   Q - My compact scope will not fit on my bolt action rifle.  Is there something that can be


  A - Compact scopes are meant to be mounted on short carbine style rifles.  For example, a

compact scope will not fit a long bolt action with standard bases simply because there

will be not be enough mounting surface on the main tube to stretch the length of the

action.  An alternative would be to mount a one piece Weaver Style Base that covers

the length of the action.  For a bolt action rifle a full size scope will probably be more  



Q - What do the numbers on my rifle scope represent?

A - The numbers printed on NcSTAR scopes represent the power size and the objective

size in millimeters.  For example, if 4x30 is printed on your scope then the

magnification of your scope is fixed at 4 power (object will appear 4 times closer than

it actually is) and the objective lens size is 30 millimeters in diameter.  If 3-9x42 is

printed on your scope then the magnification is variable between 3-9 power (able to

zoom in and out between 3 and 9 by adjusting the powering) and the objective lens

size is 42 millimeters in diameter.   


Q - I need an owner's manual for my NcSTAR product.  Can I order one directly from


A - You can download a copy of the instruction manual from this site.  If you cannot find

the instructions for your particular item, then call our Tech Support Customer Service

Center at 1-866-627-8278, and we will send you a copy.

 Q - How does the Rangefinder Reticle work?   

 A - Click Here for a tutorial and how to properly use the Rangefinder Reticle.


Q - How do I change the battery in my NcSTAR scope?

A -For most NcSTAR illuminated scopes the battery housing will be located inside of the

rheostat knob (the knob that controls the on/off function of the illumination).  You will

notice a thin cap on top of the rheostat knob.  Hold the knob firmly in place and twist

the top cap counter clockwise.  Unscrew the cap completely to reveal the battery

housing.  Remove the old battery and dispose of properly.  Be sure to replace it with

the same battery type, not doing so may cause damage to the unit.   


Q - How do I install my sunshade to my NcSTAR rifle scope?

A -You will want to make sure that you are using an NcSTAR brand sunshade on an

NcSTAR scope that is sunshade compatible.  On the end of the objective housing

you will notice a ring.  Twist this ring counter clock wise to remove it.  Once

this ring is removed you will see the exposed threads which the sunshade attaches to.

Twist the sunshade onto the scope clockwise until it is snug, but do not over tighten.

Once you have the sunshade on install the ring in the same fashion to complete the
