Burris AR536 Prism Sight Review

Burris AR536 Prism Sight

Burris AR536 Prism Sight

The Burris AR536 Prism Sight is the big brother of their AR332 multi-purpose tactical prism scope. It substitutes 5x magnification for the 3 x of the AR332 and ups the objective lens diameter to 36mm. The sight trades off speed of target acquisition for range, but this need not be a problem as you can easily mount a small red-dot sight on the AR536′s top Picatinny rail. Additional accessory rails are mounted on the sides and all are removable if you want to reduce weight.

The Ballistic/CQ™ illuminated reticle is designed for low light use and features bracketed cross hairs subtending 18 inches at 100 yards and additional dots for 500-600 yards. and is still visible even if the battery runs out. These dots are larger and wider spaced than on the AR332 which is good news for those of us with old, tired eyes. The adjustments are .33 of an inch at 100 yards which is a bit strange but is not a problem. As on an ACOG the adjuster caps are wired on so you won’t lose them. A control knob gives five brightness settings in either red or green – the battery life is only in the hundreds of hours. Eye relief is around 2.5″.

The sight’s body is machined from aluminum and hardcoat anodized to protect against scuffs and scratches. Again like the Trijicon ACOG the mount adapts to both MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rails and AR/M16 carry handles. The built in mount is tall enough not to require a riser on flat-top ARs.

Specs.:

  • AR-332 (for comparison) – Aluminum, hardcoat anodized, matte black. 40mm tube, 32mm objective lens, 3x magnification. 5.3″ (13.4cm) long, 14.2 oz. (403g) wt. 2½” (6.3mm) eye relief, ¼” MOA click adjustment, 32 ft.(9.75m) field of view at 100 yds. Requires one (1) CR-2032 lithium battery, included. Battery life: 200 hours (high), 500 hours (low).
  • AR-536 - Aluminum, hardcoat anodized, matte black. 40mm tube, 36mm objective lens, 5x magnification. 5.75″ (14.6cm) long, 18.75 oz. (532g) wt. 2½” (6.3mm) eye relief, 0.33 MOA click adjustment, 20 ft.(6.0m) field of view at 100 yds. Requires one (1) CR-2032 lithium battery, included.

Leupold – VX-R Zombie 1.25-4X20MM RIFLESCOPE Review

Leupold’s VX•R Zombie 1.25-4×20 riflescope is Leupold’s entry in the counter-zombie market. The patented Zombie Dot green reticle is illuminated with a dot in the center giving you the choice of eight intensity sttings on a single button. The Zoom is exceptionally smooth and positive in operation. Powered by a CR2032 battery the scope also features a fiber-optic light pipe. Should you leave the illumination on, a motion sensor will turn the scope’s illumination off after five minutes, but will switch it back on if there is any movement. If you turn the scope off and turn it back on, it will remember your last setting and save you resetting it.

Leupold - VX-R Zombie 1.25-4X20MM RIFLESCOPE

Leupold – VX-R Zombie 1.25-4X20MM RIFLESCOPE

The VX-R Zombie incorporates Leupold’s Quantum Optical System™ with Index Matched lens coatings with lead-free, edge blackened lenses giving excellent contrast, brightness, resolution and clarity. DiamondCoat™ lens coatings protect the exterior surfaces of the lenses and contribute to their 94% light transmission.

The 30mm tubed VX-R is totally fogproof and shockproof and features 2nd Generation Argon/Krypton Waterproofing. The scope uses 1/10 mil adjustments. The Bullet Drop Comensating turret is matched to Hornady Zombie Max .223 Rem and .308 Win ammunition help speed long range engagements.

EOTech XPS2Z Zombie Stopper Sight Review

Eotech EXPS2Z Zombie Sight

Eotech XPS2Z Zombie Sight

The EOTech XPS2-Z Zombie Stopper holographic weapon sight or HWS is the existing XPS2 with the addition of a new BIOHAZARD reticle. This doesn’t add any functionality over and above that of the existing XPS2 series, but it will doubtless appeal to the burgeoning zombie-slayer market.

The XPS series are the most compact EOTech sights available. This model runs on a transverse mounted CR-123 battery, trading battery availability for compactness. EOTechs offer completely head/eye position independent, both eyes open sighting. Even if the window shatters or most of it is obscured, as long as a small portion of it can be seen you will be able to sight your weapon.

At 3¾” long, the XPS2-Z takes up 2¾” of rail space and works well with Eotech’s 3X magnifier. Reticle brightness is adjustable via sealed buttons enabling you to set the intensity for any light conditions. The sight is waterproof to 10ft depth. To save your battery, the sight will turn itself off after 8 hours (you can re-set this to 4). Windage and elevation areadjustable with ½ MOA clicks.

The laminate optics are non-magnifying, fogproof and shatter resistant with an anti-glare coating. Eye relief is infinite and the sight is parallax free. Eotech sights are relied upon by elite military and law enforcement groups world-wide and were carried by the U.S. Navy’s Seal Team 6 in their assault on Bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan. There is nothing else on the market remotely like them.

Eotech EXPS2Z Zombie Sight

Eotech EXPS2Z Zombie Sight

Specifications:

  • Aluminum housing, matte black hardcoat anodized. 
  • Windage and elevation adjustment range +/-40 MOA in ½ MOA clicks (½” at 100 yards). 
  • Brightness adjustment range: 146,000:1, brightest to lowest. 20 brightness settings. 3.675″ (9.3cm) long x 2.125″ (5.4cm) wide x 2.375″ (6cm) high. 8.8 oz. (250g) weight.

Millett DMS1 1-4×24 Riflescope Review

The Millett DMS1 1-4×24 Riflescope is an inexpensive alternative to higher priced three gun scopes. It provides an alternative to a red dot and a scope, combining the best features of both. The reticle has an 18 MoA red donut with a 1 MoA dot in the center to enable rapid placement on large targets up close, but cranked up to 4X allows precision shooting out to 500 yards and more.

This scope is not expensive and there is an element of “you get what you pay for” to be accepted in this purchase. Some users have complained of inadequate eye-relief/critical head placement with the DMS-1 whilst others have had the reticle rotate 20 to 30 degrees after use with heavy recoiling calibers/weapons. Most seem broadly or well satisfied, taking the price point into consideration.

Bushnell TRS25 Red Dot Sight Review

Bushnell TRS25 Red Dot Sight

Bushnell TRS25 Red Dot Sight

Resembling the Aimpoint T-1 and H-1 red dot sights, the new Bushnell TRS25 Red Dot Sight provides many of the former’s qualities at a fraction of the price. The TRS25 provides fast and accurate sighting in a small, rugged package that is fogproof, waterproof and shockproof. Just like the Aimpoint, the Bushnell features an ultra strong aluminum body with integral Weaver/Picatinny mount and a large, easily grasped adjuster knob to set brightness.There are eleven setting to cope with a wide variety of brightness conditions.

Bushnell’s patented Amber-Bright™ multi-coated optics provide a crystal clear sight picture. Eye relief is unlimited making fore and aft head position irrelevant. This sight is equally at home on a rifle, shotgun or handgun. The TRS25 is essentially parallax free beyond 25 meters making it hold insensitive.

The downside of this sight is battery life of “only” 3,000 hours vs 50,000 for the Aimpoint from its lithium battery. For most uses this is irrelevant unless you happen to leave the unit switched on when you return it to your gunsafe.

Spec.:

  • Aluminum body, anodized, black anodized finish. 25mm (1″) dia. objective lens. Length 2½” (6.4cm). Weights 4 oz. (113g).
  • Uses 1 x CR-2032 battery.
  • Lens covers included.

Burris AR-PEPR mount review

Burris AR-PEPR

The Burris AR-PEPR mount (Proper Eye Position Ready) is a rugged scope mount for AR series and other flat top rifles and carbines. The PEPR AR mount comes in non quick detach (PEPR) and quick detach (AR-PEPR-QD) versions. The basic PEPR fastens to the mount via a clamp secured by two hex-headed cross-bolts. The PEPR-QD mount uses two quick detach throw levers.

Burris AR-PEPR-QD AR mount

Burris AR-PEPR-QD AR mount

Perfect return to zero is claimed by the manufacturer. The PEPR AR mounts put the scope two inches further forward than would be the case with conventional rings. This is ideal where you want to fit a magnifier or rear mounted NV and overcomes eye-relief problems caused by the short stock configurations found on some ARs. Machined from an aluminum billet, the PEPRs feature six bolts per top ring for firm clamping of the optic. All surfaces are rounded or radiused to avoid snagging. Picatinny rails machined into the tops of the clamping rings enable the fitting of a small red dot sight as a back-up and a Burris FastFire can be supplied for this purpose. Both PEPR mounts are 5.3″ (13.5cm) long, 1.6″ (4.1cm) wide and 2.4″ (6.1cm) in overall height. They are available to suit 1″ or 30mm versions.

Burris TAC-30 Review

Burris TAC-30 1-4x24 AR scope

Burris TAC-30 1-4x24 AR scope

The Burris TAC-30 is an immensely strong 1-4×24 30mm tube scope intended for competition and tactical use. The AR scope is purged and filled with laboratory grade nitrogen which is kept in (and water kept out) by Burris’ patented Quadra seal. Lenses are multicoated and parralax is virtually eliminated at 100 yards. Adjustments are utterly repeatable and use audible clicks. The mechanism is ‘steel on steel’ and has audible clicks. This model features low profile ‘hunter’ turrets so as not to snag or be inadvertently moved in competition or operations. The patented CQ reticle allows rapid aiming with precision out to 500 yards. The use of yards seems a bit strange but is common to all Burris products. The reticle is illuminated by a CR2032 battery which can last up to 5 years – an automatic sensor turns the illumination off when not required.

Burris CQ 556 reticle

Burris CQ556 reticle

Such is Burris confidence in the TAC-30 that they have given it a ‘Forever’ guarantee to its original purchaser. 0.5″ clicks give the scope 130″ of adjustment at 100 yards. The zoom features double spring tension and an elarged ball joint to ensure ruggedness. HiLume™ multi-coating on every lens surface ensures a bright, clear and high-resolution sight picture. The TAC-30 has an eye relief of 3.5-4″, is 11.3″ long and weighs 17 ounces. The Burris tactical TAC-30 is also available with Burris AR-PEPR or AR-PEPR QD mounts and the FastFire red dot sight in a piggy-backed configuration. The AR-PEPR mount offers a full 2″ of reach forward.

Burris AR-332 Review

Burris AR-332 prism sight

Burris AR-332 prism sight

The Burris AR-332 prism sight is a low cost competitor to the Trijicon ACOG series of sights. It is constructed from a 40mm aluminum tube and comes with mounts for both AR carry handles and Picatinny rails. The carry handle option allows use of the rifle’s iron sights without dismounting the sight. The 3x AR332 red dot sight comes with Burris’ Ballistic/CQ™ illuminated reticle which gives aim points from 100 to 500 yards. This is a bit strange as the military standardised on metres back in the 1920s. The reticle can be set to glow in red or green or, when turned off, gives the same picture in black – a really useful feature if your batteries run out or the electronics die. There are five brightness settings and battery life is 200 hours at a high setting and 500 at low. The AR-332 uses one CR2032 battery. Optics of this Burris AR sight are fully coated to minimize glare and the finish is hardcoat anodized. Some nice features include a sunshade, adjuster caps fitted with retaining wires and no less than three Picatinny rails to allow the fitting of a red dot sight or other accessories. The sight is 5.29″ long and has 2.5″ eye relief. This Burris AR scope weighs 14.2 ounces without the sunshade or Butler Creek style caps that are included. Adjustments are a rather odd 0.4 MoA with 60 MoA of total adjustment available. Focus, unfortunately, is underneath the rear flip up. Field of view of the Burris AR-332 is 32ft at 100 yards. This sight makes a really good, much less expensive alternative to the Trijicon ACOG for those on a budget.

RRA Dominator 2 Eotech mount review

RRA Dominator 2 Eotech mount

RRA Dominator 2 Eotech mount

The RRA Dominator 2 riser is made for flat-top AR15, M4 and M16 rifles and lifts shallow base Eotech holographic weapon sights by the required amount to enable co-witnessing of the rifle or carbine’s iron sights. Later Eotechs, including all the QD versions, have a 7mm higher mount which enables co-witnessing and are not compatible with the RRA Dominator 2 rail. You need to check which you have first. The Rock River Arms Dominator 2 flat-top mount is machined from aluminum and gives you six Picatinny slots. It is held in place by two heavy duty steel crossbolts which secure the steel clamping bar, preventing movement under recoil. A standard M16A2 adjustable backsight is fitted giving settings from 100-800 meters with .195″ and .065″ sized apertures for close and long range respectively. The RRA Dominator 2 was originally designed for the FBI SWAT and HRT.

Eotech EXPS3-4 Review

Eotech EXPS3-0 compact=The smallest Holographic Weapon Sight! The Eotech EXPS3-4 holographic sight is far shorter than the old N-cell battery sight (511/551), the single 123 battery giving it a vastly greater battery life. The use of a single battery allows a much more compact red dot sight, using only 2 3/4 inches of rail space. The Eotech EXPS3-4 attaches to the rifle’s Picatinny or Weaver rail via a throw lever quick-detach system. The mount is 7mm higher to ensure compatability with a wide variety of night vision equipment and magnifiers. Zero is achieved via two recessed side mounted adjusters. These are clearly calibrated to avoid confusion. Transverse battery mounting banishes the old bugbear of recoil related battery contact issues. A 65 MOA circle with 1 MOA dots allows both fast alignment and great precision out to 600 meters with 5.56mm or .223 caliber weapons.

The EXPS3-4 reticle enables aimed fire out to 600 meters

The EXPS3-4 reticle enables aimed fire out to 600 meters

The Eotech EXPS3-4 can be used with nght vision, or the G23.FTS flip to side magnifier, the buttons having been moved to the left hand side to allow the magnifier or NV unit to be fitted very close to the HWS.

EXPS3-4 with 3X magnifier

The EXPS3-4 sight is compatible and available with the Eotech 3X magnifier

As with other Eotech HWS, the EXPS3-4 provides exceptionally fast target acquisition and is very tolerant of head placement and shooting position. Eotech vs Aimpoint the former is a lot less expensive although somewhat bulkier than Aimpoint’s compact models. Aimpoint vs Eotech, battery life is much reduced from that of the Aimpoint, lasting only hundreds rather than tens of thousands of hours.

This video explains the benefits of the Eotech holographic weapon sights (but shows older and discontinued models).

* Single transverse CR123 battery reduces sight length significantly
* Shortened base only requires at most 2 3/4 inch of rail space compared to the 4 inches required by the old N battery sights
* Battery cap and latch are replaced with a simple O-ring, tethered cap for much better sealing
* Battery compartment is raised to clear the delta ring of the rifle
* Typical battery life at brightness level 12 is roughly 600 hours, this is three times the battery life of N cell sights
* Reticle: 65MOA circle with 1 MOA aiming dot

The XPS3 is Night Vision compatible, for non-Night Vision compatible units see the XPS2 sights.

Eotech XPS2-RF Review

The Eotech XPS2-RF is the first Holographic Weapon Sight (HWS) designed for the rimfire and air rifle user.

Eotech XPS2-RF rimfire sight

Eotech XPS2-RF rimfire and air rifle sight

In order to keep the weight and cost of this rimfire holographic sight down, Eotech have made the XPS-2RF rimfire HWS smaller and lighter than their military/law enforcement/hunting models and done away with the waterproofing, rating the unit ‘water resistant’ instead. The Eotech XPS-2RF retains the fogproofing of the higher spec. models though. Interestingly, Eotech claim that this holographic rimfie sight is designed to take the forward recoil of a spring-powered air rifle making it suitable for a wide range of adult rated air guns. Powered by a single CR123 battery in a transverse compartment for the shortest possible length, the XPS2-RF Eotech rimfire sight only requires 2 3/4″ of dovetail space. It uses a conventional rimfire ‘tip-off’ mount configured for US 3/8″ dovetails. Eotech claim these are the same thing as European 11mm rails on their video, but in truth, whilst US mounts will work after a fashion on Euro rifles and vice-versa, they are not a perfect fit and may not center perfectly. This sight will not fit Picatinny or Weaver rails.

Eotech XPS2-RF underside showing tip-off mount

Eotech XPS2-RF underside showing 3/8" 'tip-off' mounting system

With a non magnifying rimfire holo sight like the XPS2-RF that really doesn’t matter. Eotech further claim a 600 hour battery life at a setting of 12. Strangely, on their own video they show the sight demonstrated on a .22WMR rifle, although the sight is only rated to .22LR or smaller cartridges.

In all honesty, the lack of robustness and waterproofing is a bit of a worry. $399 is still a lot of money to pay for a unity power rimfire optical sight and, whilst unique, I can’t help but feel that users that wanted this technology would want the ruggedness of the milspec units too. Still the SPS-2RF is bound to give a lot of shooters a great deal of pleasure.

Trijicon TA648 Review

Trijicon TA648

Trijicon TA648 (new model with Picatinny rail)

Recently selected as the optical sight for the British Army’s L129A1 Sharpshooter Rifle (n LMT  .308″ AR) the Trijicon TA648 ACOG is a 6X48 magnifying reflex sight intended for medium to long range use. It gives excellent target acquisition speed and accuracy. High quality optics mean this sight is usable in low light and the 6X magnification ensures that the sight can be used agains small, relatively distant targets. The latest version of this sight features a Picatinny rail on top to enable the mounting of a small Trijicon, Docter or Insight Miniature Red Dot Sight. This sight differs from most ACOGs in featuring a manual override for the otherwise automatic fiber-optic illumination system to enable you to adjust finely to ambient light conditions. Night illumination is provided by a tritium light source.

Trijicon TA648 5.56 mm reticle

Trijicon TA648 5.56 mm reticle

The bright, red or green (for .308/7.62×51 mm only), chevron (upside down “V”) reticle ensures very rapid shot placement whilst a ladder reticle gives you aiming marks in 100 meter intervals from 400 to 800 meters (1200 in the 7.62X51 mm model). This bullet drop compensating or DDC reticle is available calibrated for either 7.62X51 mm M80 ball or 5.56X45 mm M855 ball. For ruggedness the 6X48 ACOG is machined from the same forged 7075 T6 aluminum from which M16 receivers are made. It is anodized matte black to match the finish of most in-service weapons. The TA648 .308 ACOG or 5.56 ACOG is waterproof to an astounding 100 meters and is dry nitrogen filled to prevent fogging. It mounts directly to any MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail with its TA75 base. The 6X ACOG sight can be removed and re-fitted without loss of zero.

The TA648-308 also includes:

1 Picatinny Rail Adapter (TA75)

1 LENSPEN® (TA56)

1 Pelican hard case

Leupold Prismatic Rifle Scope Review

Leupold prismatic rifle scope and accessories

Leupold Prismatic Rifle Scope and accessories

The Leupold Prismatic Rifle Scope is a very compact 1X scope. It gives you the both-eyes open, rapid aiming of a red dot sight with the clarity and reliability of a conventional scope. This scope is best suited to applications where situational awareness and rapid target engagement are critical such as tactical operations and hunting in close country.

Leupold Prismatic Rifle Scope with Picatinny mount and spacer

Leupold Prismatic Rifle Scope with Picatinny mount and spacer

The Leupold Prismatic sight is unusual in having a detachable illumination module that clamps on, giving eight brightness settings. It can be removed when not required to minimize weight. The easily centered circle and cross reticle is etched on the glass of the high grade optics so cannot break and it is visible without illumination should the illumination unit fail. Light transmission is enhanced by DiamondCoat 2™ lens coating which also protects the lenses from scratching.

Leupold prismatic rifle scope left hand side

Leupold Prismatic Rifle Scope and Weaver/Picatinny mount

The Leupold Prismatic Rifle Scope is immensely rugged with a thick walled aluminum tube and is sealed, fogproof and waterproof. Adjustment is in ½ MOA clicks, with a 70 MOA adjustment range. Focus is adjusted via the eyepiece. The sight comes with an integrated base and three height spacers to fit firearms with M1913 Picatinny or Weaver-style rails. This scope has a 30mm tube and is thus compatible with any 30mm rings or the A.R.M.S. #22 quick-detach throw-lever rings. An alternative route to quick detach operation and one which offers adjustment is the GG&G Accucam for the Leupold Prismatic Scope.

Leupold Prismatic Rifle Scope right hand side

The Leupold Prismatic Rifle Scope is compact and rugged.

The Prismatic Rifle scope is amodized matte black. It is 4 3⁄8″ (11.1cm) long, 2” (5.1cm) wide at its widest point with the Illumination Module installed and weighs 8.4 oz. (237g) weight without base. Eye relief is 3” (7.6cm). The illumination unit runs on a DL1/3N button-type battery (included).

Trijicon TA31RCO-M150CP (U.S. Army M150)

M150 Rifle Combat Optic

M150 Rifle Combat Optic

The TA31RCO-M150CP is the U.S. Army’s M150 Rifle Combat Optic. It is based on the US Marine Corps AN/PEQ-31 but has a different parallax setting. Both units are based on the TA31 ACOG. Unlike the USMC which felt that a ballistically optimized RCO was necessary for the M4 and M16A4, the US Army has gone with a ‘one size fits all’ ballistic solution to suit the M4, M16A2, M16A4 and M249. This perhaps reflects the lesser emphasis on accurate long range infantry fire in the latter service and simplifies logistics.

M150

M150 Rifle Combat Optic

The M150 is intended to give the shooter a sight that will provide relatively fast target acquisition at close ranges and deliver aimed fire out to 800 meters. To this end it features a bullet drop compensating reticle with a large, red illuminated chevron aiming mark. The widths of the horizontal hash marks correspond to the width of a .5 meters (19 inches) U.S. Army silhouette target (man-size) at each range. The crosshair lines for the 100 to 300 meter (108 to 324 yds) ranges are illuminated at night. The small vertical lines are 5 mils apart and the large ones 10 mils apart. Illumination is provided by the combination of a Tritium light source and a fiber-optic light gathering device. The latter automatically adjusts to ambient lighting conditions. This combination provides for great illumination in almost all circumstances, the exception being shooting into a brightly lit area from a dark one. Trijicon developed the TriPower triple-illuminated reflex sight to overcome that seldom encountered problem, but at the cost of reintroducing batteries which are not required on the M150. Situational awareness is enhanced by the ability to keep both eyes open while engaging targets.

M150 RCO reticle

M150 RCO reticle

Magnification is 4X and objective lens diameter is 32 mm making this a 4X32 configuration. The unit is machined from aluminum forgings with a finish that matches most in-service weapons. The TA31RCO-M150CP ACOG is immensely rugged and easily adjusted without recourse to special tools. It is waterproof to 11 meters even with the adjuster caps removed. The M150 RCO comes with an AGF1-ARD Laser Filter and Anti Reflection Device (LARD) Combo Unit (NSN 1240-01-540-2890). The civilian version does not have the AGF1 laser filter component included. This unit is made of glass-composite and also matches the finish of the M4 , M16 and M249. It is secured to the M150 with a rubber strap. The M150 Rifle Combat Optic comes with the TA51 twin thumbscrew Picatinny rail mount which can be removed to allow carry handle mounting on the M16A2.

TA31RCO-M150

Trijicon RMR Mounts

The Trijicon RMR sight is a very popular choice as a secondary sighting system, either offset on AR-15s or tactical shotguns or piggy-backed on higher magnification optical sights. They manufacture a wide range of Trijicon RMR mounts to suit these applications. They are made of 6061 T-6 aluminum, Type III anodized in a matte black surface with fixings made of steel, phosphated to a matching finish. Some of the most popular mounts in the range are as follows:

Trijicon RM33 low Picatinny mount

Trijicon RM33 low Picatinny mount

RM33 is a low RMR Picatinny mount to put the Trijicon RMR as low as possible on a Picatinny rail. This is typically desired on tactical shotguns. Two allen headed bolts clamp the mount to the Picatinny rail and a steel cross bolt prevents movement backward or forward.

Trijicon RM34 high Picatinny mount

Trijicon RM34 high Picatinny mount

The RM34 RMR mount is a high Picatinny mount for use on AR-15s and similar rifles and carbines. This RMR Picatinny mount uses a steel thumbscrew with a cross-slot to aid further tightening. Depending on the sights selected, this mount will either lower third or absolute co-witness.

Trijicon RM34W Weaver mount

Trijicon RM34W Weaver mount

The RM34W RMR Weaver mount is a low Weaver RMR mount for use on hunting rifles and others still using the Weaver standard rail system. It is otherwise identical to the RM34 RMR Picatinny mount.

Trijicon RM36 mount

Trijicon RM36 mount

The RM36 RMR ACOG mount enables you to piggy-back the RMR on 1.5X, 2X and 3X Trijicon ACOG sights. An RMR ACOG piggy-backed setup enables an instant switch from close range to longer range engagements.

Trijicon RM55 offset Picatinny adapter

Trijicon RM55 offset Picatinny adapter

The RM55 offset Picatinny rail attaches to the Mil Std 1913 Picatinny Rail on your rifle, carbine or shotgun and offers a small section of Picatinny rail of the correct length to take an RMR reflex sight on an appropriate mount. The RM55 offset Picatinny mount clamps onto your Picatinny rail with a steel thumbscrew and steel clamping surface. The thumbscrew is slotted to be tightened with a tool and a crossbar stops movement fore and aft.

Bushnell Trophy red dot review

 

Bushnell Trophy red dot sight

Bushnell Trophy red dot sight

The Bushnell Trophy red dot sight is a high quality, waterproof, fogproof and shockproof unit that mounts directly onto any Picatinny or Weaver-style rail with a rugged twin thumbscrew mount which enables repeat zero when removing and remounting. The sight has an aluminum body which is hardcoat anodized for protection. The control knob is easily manipulated giving 5 red and 5 green brightness settings (not NV compatible). Use the red for bright daylight and the green for low light. The Bushnell red dot Trophy has a T with a dot in the middle of the horizontal bar reticle which enables you to keep the weapon level and sweep arrays of targets shooting each as the dot is centred. This sight is great for 3 gun competitions and metallic silhouette shoots. The Bushnell Trophy red dot uses Amber-Bright™ multi-coated optics for excellent clarity and light transmission and the sight gives unlimited eye relief and unitary power for rapid target engagement. The Bushnell 730132P red dot sight has a 32mm objective with a good field of view and great light gathering. Fixed back-up sights are included in the top of the sight. The lens covers provided are really the Achillies heel of an otherwise excellent sight. The Bushnell Trophy 1X32 red dot sight is  6½” (16.5cm) long, and weighs 15.6 oz. (442g) weight. It uses one CR-2032 battery (included).

Vortex Strikefire Review

Vortex Strikefire

Vortex Strikefire red dot sight

Red dot sights offer excellent situational awarness and very rapid target acquisition and engagement. The Vortex Strikefire red dot sight fills a gap in the market for a very good red dot sight at much less cost than the Aimpoint Comp series. Like the Comps it uses a 30mm aluminum tube for great strength and is O-ring sealed and nitrogen filled to be water, fog and shock-proof. The body is Type III hard coat anodized for protection and flip-up lens covers are supplied. This sight was tested to the equivalent of 1000 rounds of .375 H&H without any problems. The Strikefire comes with a 2X adapter to increase its versatility, has multi-coated lenses and is parallax free beyound 50 yards (in tests the US Army found the Aimpoint CompM2 was only parallax free beyond this distance). The Vortex Strike Fire comes with a mount to fit MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rails and Weaver-style bases found on many rifles, shotguns and some handguns. The Strikefire Vortex had its brighness controls in rubber sealed buttons facing the rear and giving 10 brightness positions and a night vision mode. Power on/off is via a separate switch. The dot is 4 MoA which is great for fast shooting and the adjustments are in ½ MOA clicks for precision. The Strikefire has a 100 MoA range of adjustment in elevation and windage and is NV compatible. The main downside of this sight is its very limited battery life compared to an Aimpoint; several hundred hours vs 50-80,000 for current aimpoints. However, users have expressed great satisfaction with this sight in reviews and some are even using it in tactical appications. Two versions are offered:

SF-BR-AR15 – Tactical model with a red aiming dot, and an extra-height ring mount to position the scope at the correct height on a flattop AR-15.

SFRD-HUNT – Lets you switch between a red dot and a green dot at the touch of a button to set the best color for the prevailing light conditions. Comes with a low mount for installation on close-range hunting or tactical rifles.

Both models of the Vortex Optics Strikefire run on one CR-2 lithium battery (included) that provides up to 130 hours (red) or 420 hours (green) run time at maximum brightness setting. The sight has a 30mm objective diameter, is 6.1″ long and weighs 7.2 oz.

Vortex SPARC Review

 

Vortex SPARC red dot sight

Vortex SPARC red dot sight

The Vortex SPARC red dot sight is a compact alternative to some of the more expensive red dot sights on the market. It is compact and rugged with an O-ring sealed and nitrogen-purged water, fog and shock proof hard-anodized aluminum body. The Vortex Optics SPARC allows both eyes open, unlimited eye-relief aiming for very fast target acquisition and engagement and a 2X magnifier is included for longer ranges – something you don’t get with an Aimpoint. The lenses are multicoated for great light transmission. You have the option of selecting red or green dots in this NV compatible unit. The brightness is controlled via rear facing buttons like an Eotech and gives you 10 day and one night vision setting. Power ON/OFF is on the side.

Like the Aimpoint, this unit is parallax free beyond 50 yards.  Adjustments are in 1 MoA clicks with 90 MoA total range of adjustment. The SPARC red dot sight runs on two CR-2354 lithium batteries – battery life is 120 hours on maximum brightness which is OK, but orders of magnitude less than an Aimpoint T-1, so it pays to have some spares close at hand, especially in cold weather.

The Vortex SPARC is supplied with mounts to fit any MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail and most Weaver-style bases. The mount that comes with the SPARC red dot sight comes with adapters to enable co-witnessing at either absolute or lower 1/3 height on an AR-15. Better still, the mounting screws are the same size, thread and spacing as the Aimpoint T-1, enabling the use of La Rue quick detach mounts – the 660 is too high for absolute co-witnessing – you should go for the 660HK on an AR.

Nikon M-223 3-12X42SF Scope Review

 

Nikon M223 3-12X42SF

Nikon M223 3-12X42SF

The Nikon M-223 3-12X42SF scope is the largest in the M223 range. These scopes offer great light transmission in a rugged, one-piece 1″ hard-anodized aluminum tube and are shock-proof, water-proof and fog-proof. The M223 scopes feature very smooth zoom and dialling and have a constant four inches of eye-relief all the way through their zoom range. The Nikon 3-12X42SF scopes achieve approximately 95% light-transmission, passing the light back to a massive occular lens. Two models of M223 scope are available in this objective size. One uses a unique BDC reticle with circle and hash aiming marks compensating for 55 grain polymer-tipped .223 bullets in 100 yard increments out to 600 yards. The other uses the Nikoplex reticle and a Rapid Action Turret to dial-in. Both M-223 rifle scope models feature a Return to Zero (RTZ) facility. These scopes weight approximately 18.7 oz. and are 13.1″ long. For a limited time these scopes are available from Brownells with a free Nikon M-223 one piece mount.

Vortex Optics Viper PST 1-4X24

The Vortex Viper PST rifle scope is fast becoming a favourite of 3-gun and tactical shooters across the United states. These are very high quality scopes designed to deliver complete repeatability regardless of the environment and tactical situation. They are waterproof, dustproof and shockproof and feature one piece 30 mm tubes machined from 6061 T6 aluminum.

Vortex Optics Viper PST 4-16X50

Vortes Viper rifle scopes feature etched glass reticles protected by sandwiching within two layers of glass. There are ten illumination settings and an off setting is included between each one so you don’t have to cycle through all the settings to get back to where you were when you switch the illumination back on. The illumination is powered by a single CR2032 battery for long life. The Viper PST series utlize XD extra-low dispersion glass in their objective lenses and XR multi-layer anti-reflextive coating is used on all lenses. Both objective and ocular lenses are protected by an ArmorTek™ coating.

The EBR (Enhanced Battle Rifle) turrets are easy to manupulate and feature and easy Return to Zero (RTZ) feature. The Vortex PST CRS (Customizable Rotational Stop) system prevents turret from below more than one revolution below the sight-in zero. The First Focal Plane (FFP) model Vortex rifle scopes have graduations that stay the same regardless of magnification, greatly easing the difficulty of calculations and ranging. These scopes feature a very large range of adjustment. Three reticles are available on the Vortex Optics scopes:

MOA (Minute of Angle), with subtension lines that equal approximately 1″ at 100 yards.

MRAD (Milliradian), with subtension lines that equal approximately 3.6″ at 100 yards or exactly 10 cm at 100 meters.

Trijicon ACOG TA31ECOS Review

 

TA31ECOS front left

TA31ECOS

The Trijicon TA31ECOS is the battle-proven TA31 4X32 ACOG fitted with two back-up aiming options. The first is the Trijicon RMR rear mounted reflex sight with a 3.25 or 4 MOA red dot reticle (the latter results in the designation TA31ECOS-G). This site is battery operated and waterproof to 11 meters.

Trijicon ACOG TA31ECOS

Trijicon ACOG TA31ECOS

The RMR red dot sight gives very rapid target acquisition and engagement at short to medium ranges. In the unlikely event that your Trijicon RMR sight is non-operational, the TA31ECOS features a built in aperture rear sight and front post sight that can be repositioned on either side of the unit to cater for left or right handed shooters. The TA31 ECOS itself features the Bindon Aiming Concept with a fiber-optic illuminated crosshairs reticle incorporated into a ballistic aiming ladder calibrated for 62 grain 5.56X45mm ammunition. The ACOG ECOS is supplied with an A.R.M.S. dual throw lever quick-detach mount to suit MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rails. This can easily be removed to make the sight suitable for carry handle mounting.

Talley Rings – Fixed, Review

Talley rings (fixed)

Talley rings are machined to high precision to ensure correct alignment of your scope. Talley fixed rings were developed from their quick detach rings to provide a sleek. no-snag, rock solid mount for shooters that did not need quick detach capability. Talley fixed scope mounts are made with the same care and quality control and have the same recoil shoulder to stand up to the most brutal of magnum cartridges in lightweight hunting rifles and handguns. Talley scope rings provide a very secure mounting at a reasonable price. They are available in 1″ and 30 mm and low medium and high and in blued, satin and stainless finish. Ring heights measured from top of base to bottom of ring. Low - .300” (7.62mm). Medium – .400” (10.16mm). High - .500” (12.7mm). X High - .600” (15.2mm). Fit Talley bases only.

Talley Rings – Tactical, Review

Talley rings - tactical

Talley rings are precision-machined from a single billet of high strength 7075 T-6 aluminum to ensure perfect alignment. 7075 T-6 is 40% stronger than the 6000 series typically used by other manufacturers. They are hard anodized black for corrosion and abrasion protection. The Talley tactical rings have dual recoil lugs to ensure they won’t move even when subjected to immense recoil forces. The top ring is secured by four heavy-duty Allen head screws to ensure the scope will not move in the rings if correctly torqued. A Locking bar, heavy-duty 303 stainless steel crossbolt and oversized, ½” hex nuts secure the Talley rings to any MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail. The Talley mounts have their rings and bases individually serial numbered to ensure that you return the right cap to each ring when you take them off. Talley scope mounts are available in 1″ and 30mm and low, medium and high format. Talley rings are 1.9″ (5cm) wide, .665″ (16.8mm)  and thick. Heights measured from top of base to center of ring: Low - 1″ (2.5cm); Medium - 1.125″ (2.8cm); High - 1.275 (3.2cm).

Leupold PRW Rings Review

Leupold PRW rings

Leupold PRW rings

Leupold PRW rings are the permanent version of the QRW quick release rings. Machined from steel bar stock the mounts align perfectly (assuming your rail or bases are correctly dimensioned). The Leupold PRW rings clamp to the Weaver or MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail with dual Torx screws and a steel crossbar prevents any movement under recoil. The rings are clamped by four Torx screws below the half-way point on the ring. This reduces the chance that the scope will rotate in the ring when the Torx screws are tightened. The PRW rings are available powder coated in gloss black (1″ Medium height only) or matte black and in low (1″ only), medium and high format (for very high mounting use the Mark 4 mounts instead). Scope mounting heights are as follows:

1″ Low 0.75″
1″ Medium 0.88″
1″ High 1.00″
30mm Medium 0.97″
30mm High 1.09″

The Mk 4 rings are either blued or mil spec. hard anodized in a matte black finish and clamp down with 8-40 Torx screws using the wrench included. Large hex nuts enable easy clamping of the Mark 4 ring onto the rail for ultra solid mounting and reliable operation.

Leupold QRW rings offer an easy way to quickly attach or detach a 1″ or 30mm scope or optic to a Weaver or MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail. The levers can be adjusted so that they both rest at the same angle when tightened and lock the rings to the rail for solid dependability and repeatable accuracy. The clamping rings on the Leupold QRWare located beyond the half way point on the ring, cutting down the chance that the scope will rotate as you torque them down. The QRW mounts are made of steel and powder coated matte black (MB), gloss black (GB) or silver (SIL). Three heights of QRW mount are available. Mount heights are as follows:

1″ LOW 0.75″
1″ MEDIUM 0.88″
1″ HIGH 1.00″

30 mm LOW 0.84″
30 mm MEDIUM 0.97″
30 mm HIGH 1.09″

Trijicon TriPower Review

Trijicon TriPower

Trijicon TriPower

The Trijicon TriPower is the first sight to use three forms of illumination for use in all lighting conditions. Fiber-optic illumination adapts automatically to almost all day lighting conditions. Tritium works in low light and with NV. Battery comes in in special circumstances – for instance when shooting from inside a dark building into bright light or when sighting against brightly lit snow. This is essential in entry operations.

The TX30 TriPower employs two CR1/3N batteries and brightness is adjusted via an easily manipulated switch on top of the unit. There are 15 day and 5 night settings – more than you get with any Aimpoint or Eotech. The Trijicon TriPower TX30 is parallax free, unlike the magnifying ACOGs. However it lacks the ACOG’s etched reticle and relys instead on a red aiming chevron that is 14.4 MoA tall and 16.6 MoA wide – the size of a standard US Army silhouette target at 100 meters to aid ranging.

Trijicon TriPower

Broad band anti reflective coated lenses ensure maxium light transmission. Both the objective and occular lens housings are threaded to take accessories. Like all Trijicon sights, the TriPower is immensely strong. The housing is one-piece and is machined from a forging of 7075-T6 aircraft quality aluminium. The TX30 is hard anodized matte black and is waterproof to 100ft.

Aimpoint CompC3 Review

The Aimpoint CompC3 red dot sight is the compact equivalent of the CompML3 intended for non-military applications where a smaller sight is needed.  Aimpoint red dot sights are parallax-free beyond 25 meters, preventing variations in head position from affecting the point of impact. Both eyes open shooting prevents the tunnel vision associated with scopes and provides unrivalled situational awareness.

Aimpoint CompC3

Aimpoint CompC3

This is an excellent 2 MoA red dot sight for engaging moving targets, making Aimpoints are the sight of choice for taking moose and wildfowl in the Nordic countries. The Aimpoint CompC3 is immensely strong, constructed as a 6000 series aluminium tube and is fully waterproof.

Aimpoint CompC3

Aimpoint Hunter H30S Review

The Aimpoint Hunter H30S is a new, 34mm tube red dot sight designed for hunting with short and medium length action centerfire rifles. It is designed to stand up to the recoil of any hunting round and the vibration of semiautomatic rifles and shotguns.

The Aimpoint H30S is fully waterproof and its lenses are coated with a proprietary and highly effective anti fogging compound. It will function in temperatures from -30° – +60°C, (-20° – +140°F). The H30S Aimpoint uses ground lenses of superior optical quality. As with all Aimpoints it uses a single 2 MoA red dot aiming point – according to Aimpoint proven to be the most easily acquired and centered aiming pattern ever invented. It gives both eyes open, parallax-free aiming, meaning that your head position will not affect where your shots impact.

You will not suffer the tunnel vision experienced with telescopic sights and will be able to detect other animals or people entering the kill zone, improving safety. Adjustment is via front mounted adjustment knobs with reversible detachable adjuster tools (the black ‘knobs’ you see on the objective housing). 12 brightness levels are selectable via silently operated buttons on top of the sight. 50,000 hours (over 5 years) continuous operation is possible from one CR2032 battery.
