3E is a Turkish company that manufactures its products mostly for the Turkish military. As one of their novelties, they presented the Keskin 3–12×50 riflescope at IWA 2018. The riflescope is reminiscent of the Schmidt & Bender PM II 3–12×50 but will cost approx. a third less.
The optical quality is very decent. This is a mil-mil configuration riflescope as regards the elevation and windage adjustments. The turrets are double-turn, have a mechanical turn indicator and zero stop as befits a premium tactical riflescope. There are two reticles available at the moment – both are a variation of the mil-dot reticle. We expect that 3E will expand its offer of reticles for this model in the future.
This riflescope is great for those who are looking for a tactical riflescope with a great price/performance ratio and don’t care that much about the brand. Keskin 3–12×50 is expected to retail for around 1850 €.
