It comes with the RevStop return-to-zero system, fully multi-coated lenses, a throw lever, a 3-inch sunshade, a turret tool, rubber lens covers, a lens cloth, and a 2mm Hex wrench. The Venom is waterproof, fogproof, and shockproof.

Located in the first focal plane, the EBR-7C reticle is a “Christmas tree” type with a fine center dot, fine subtensions along the top of the horizontal axis, and heavy marks along the bottom of the horizontal axis as well as hashmarks up and down the vertical crosshair. The Venom 5-25X 56mm FFP scope is 15.3 inches long and weighs 35 ounces. The eye relief is 3.6 inches, the field of view at 100 yards is 21.2 feet to 4.7 feet, and the finish is matte black. With a retail price substantially lower than most in this category, it’s a good option.
