Zeiss has announced an all-new first focal plane riflescope – the Zeiss LRP S3. The new riflescope for long-range precision shooting and hunting includes impressive total elevation travel, advanced optics, daytime visible illuminated reticle, ballistic stop, and an external locking windage turret. The product family consist of two models: ZEISS LRP S3 425-50 and 636-56. Both are available in either milliradian (MRAD) or minute-of-angle (MOA) configurations.

With up to 160 MOA or 46.5 MRAD of total elevation travel for the 425-50 model and 110 MOA or 32 MRAD for the 636-56 model, the LRP S3 ensures the bullet impact even on the most distant targets. The riflescopes utilize Zeiss’ proven external elevation turret with enhanced engraving for precise shot placement. Together with the ballistic stop, which provides an absolute and true return to zero, and the external locking windage turret, the ZEISS LRP S3 offers the shooter easy access for immediate wind correction and a locking feature to secure the setting.

The LRP S3 first focal plane riflescope from ZEISS is equipped with advanced optics, allowing the shooter to quickly locate and define the targets. The optical performance is assured via the use of extra-low dispersion (ED) lens elements and Zeiss’ proprietary multi-layer lens coating for optimum color fidelity, image brightness and edge-to-edge sharpness within the entire field-of-view. Additionally, the new riflescopes deliver 90% light transmission.

The scope uses the ZF-MOAi and ZF-MRi reticles. Both offer fine line reticle subtensions and floating center dots to serve the demands of precision shooters and long-range hunters alike. The user can select red or green illumination and the preferred setting from five intensity levels. Only the center section of the reticle is illuminated for the most precise point of aim even when viewing against challenging targets or in harsher lighting conditions.


With a 34mm aluminum main tube mono-bloc housing, shock tested up to 1,500g-force, waterproofness up to 400 mbar, the LRP S3 is not only compact but also very robust. It is engineered for extreme usage in rough terrain. There is a lot to like about the new line of scopes. Be sure to stay tuned for a full, in-depth review in an upcoming issue of RifleShooter magazine.
