Clearidge Optics is now importing a line of well-made riflescopes from Japan. The Clearidge marketing advantage is that they sell online, direct to the end user, via their web site ( There are no distributors or dealers to add additional mark-up, so you put the savings in your pocket.
Here is the Clearidge mission statement:
"Clearidge Optics offers exceptional quality riflescopes, but we sell them directly to YOU! This means no middle-man, no searching for a stocking dealer and, best of all, some of the world's best riflescopes at significant savings."
"We at Clearidge are also shooters and hunters, so we understand that price and availability don't matter unless the product does the job. Whether you are a big game or varmint hunter, a target shooter or plinker, Clearidge optics give you the clarity, acuity and light it takes to get the shot right"
When Clearidge offered our choice of riflescope to review, we selected their rimfire target/varmint model. The Ultra RM is a 3-9x32mm AO scope with semi-target type (or maybe varmint type) MOA fingertip knobs for adjusting windage and elevation.
