The 8 Best Smart Rifle Scopes
This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Our forefathers didn't need any fancy equipment to succeed on a hunt. Then again, our forefathers didn't have WiFi — and they didn't live very long, either. These smart rifle scopes can give you a world of information while also allowing you to capture footage of your pursuit. We recommend the high-tech, dedicated models, but if those are too pricey for you, we've included a cheap workaround. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

True smart scopes feature some type of onboard computing system that takes some of the guesswork out of calculating the variables like elevation, distance, and other factors that mean the difference between hitting the target and missing it. In most cases, they also offer Bluetooth connectivity and associated apps where you can input various data that can also affect your shot, such as cartridge type. At this time, there are still only a few models that can truly be considered smart, though we expect that to change over time, and we have made sure to include all the high-quality and reliable options here. However, these are generally very expensive, so we have also included the SoloMark Smartphone Adapter for those who simply want the ability to record their shots through the view of their scope.
