Shot Show 2022: Arken EP-5

with No Comments

In just a handful of years, a small independent optics company in Texas named Arken has earned an almost cult-like reputation among budget build long-distance/ELR shooters for creating high-quality optics for under $500 (now $600). All of their scopes offer features like high-quality zero-stop turrets, dead-on Christmas-Tree reticles, ED glass, and a life-time warranty. They keep their prices low by having a narrow product line and only selling directly form their website and form select local retailers.

Their EP4 and and SH4 scopes have earned rave reviews from some well known PewTubers include Cyclops Joe, Tiborasaurus Rex, and IraqVeteran8888. I’ve been eager to get my hands on one to review. I was fortunate to be able to meet their staff at their booth at Shot Show and get an early look at their newest scope, the EP5.
