07/05/2016 Shepherd Scopes Launches Sun Blocker Defense Lens

July 18, 2016

Seminole, FL–Shepherd Scopes, a designer, distributor and inventor of a novel line of fire control optics, is offering its newest innovation.  This patent pending product line is the latest from a company that invented the first range finding scope with a true one shot zero function built in the sight.

The sun blocker defense lenses are a true innovation in the sport and tactical optic market.  The lens is designed to, in real time, dim or lighten dynamically with the amount of light in the field.  This first of its kind sun blocker, does  not require any external power and automatically provides the correct transmission in any lighting situation.  The lens is added to the front of the riflescope and can be used in conjunction with any Shepherd riflescope.

“In my mind this is one of the most exciting products we are bringing to market this year.”  Said Patrick Bass, Executive Vice President of Salvo Technologies.  “The simplicity is what is novel in this product.  You put the lens on the scope and it takes care of the rest.  Whether it’s a bright and sunny day or a cloudy day it just works.  It provides the correct transmission for optimal shooting in any lighting condition.”

The lens will be available to the general public in August.  Dealers and store owners are testing the lens currently and interested users are urged to reach out and be the first to see the product in action.
