Trijicon introduced several new lines of riflescopes in 2020, including the Credo HX, which, according to the company, “was designed with one purpose in mind: brag-worthy hunts.” Judging by the 1-6X sample we received, it should be excellent for hunting deer, hogs, and black bears. Other models in the line include 1-4X 24mm, 1-8X 28mm, 2.5-10X 56mm, 2.5-15X 42mm, 2.5-15X 56mm, and 4-16X 50mm, and they’ll be great for just about everything from varmints to dangerous game.
The Credo HX scopes feature easy-focus eyepieces, repositionable magnification levers, crisp and precise windage and elevation adjustments, and extra-wide fields of view. They provide red or green illuminated reticles with “off” positions between brightness levels, quick target acquisition, tremendous light transmission, and excellent edge-to-edge clarity. Being tested to military standards and protocols, they are rugged and withstand extreme conditions.
The Credo HX 1-6X 24mm I’ve been using has low-capped turrets and the green BDC Hunter reticle with 10 brightness levels. The reticle is located in the second focal plane and is powered by one CR2032 battery, and life expectancy is 198 hours on brightness setting #7. (Battery life for the red reticle is 68 hours on brightness setting #7.) Trijicon’s first-focal-plane MOA Segmented Circle reticle is also offered in this model (MSRP: $1,350).
The Credo HX 1-6X 24mm scope weighs 18.9 ounces, is 10.9 inches long, and has a 30mm main tube. Field of view ranges from 18.8 feet at 100 yards (6X) to 113.4 feet at 100 yards (1X).
