Despite its diminutive dimensions – it measures just 122mm from the 30mm objective to the eyepiece – the squat 10×30 is anything but short on features. Its external elevation and windage turrets not only offer the much-favoured MIL-rated click adjustments, they are also lockable and feature resettable verniers.
Complementing a quick-focus eyepiece, there’s sidewheel parallax adjustment to eliminate aiming errors at closer ranges, with adjustment down to 10 yards. And the Atom sports MTC’s exclusive SCB2 multi-stadia reticle, which can also be illuminated to one of 10 brightness settings.
Further versatility comes in the form of the objective lens housing. This has been designed to allow the fitting of many after-market Night Vision DSAs (Day-Scope Adapters), thus allowing the Atom to shoot around the clock.
