So you just laid down a stack of green on the latest, greatest and most expensive rifle in the world. Good for you, but realize that if you don’t have a world class scope or other optical device to go with your long gun (and an intimate understanding of how to properly use that sometimes enigmatic piece of hardware), you’ll never get to witness your rifle’s full potential.
yuy96 discusses the pros and cons of the most common combat optics in use by the military.
ANAHEIM — “An arrest warrant has been issued for a California businessman who has been charged with counterfeiting high-tech rifle sights in a scheme to sell them over the Internet.
Yongming “Steven” Sui, the 37-year-old chief executive officer of Anaheim-based Field Sport Inc., and two business associates are accused of manufacturing and advertising about 700 counterfeit gun sights and 200 magnifier systems for sale online, with a retail value of about $475,000, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”
“The Leatherwood ART M-1000 2.5-10 x44mm Rifle Scope. The ART Series Scopes were the Brain Child of the Legendary Jim Leatherwood, who’s mounting system gave the U.S. Military Sniper teams the decided edge over the Battlefields in Vietnam. Still in service today, the ART Scope is a quality optic that is rugged and easy to master. And at an affordable price of $349.99 from Natchez Shooting Supply or $389.99 from MidwayUSA.com.”
As usual, there are varying opinions on the usefulness of this product. Some other feedback to consider:
Spike’s Tactical has a variety of complete rifles, uppers, lowers and accessories.
Darpa, the Pentagon’s way-out research arm, is hoping to use lasers and advanced optical systems to make other snipers Harrison-accurate, even when the winds are howling. The agency is looking for 15 ultraprecise sniper scopes to put in shooters’ hands by next year.
Trijicon®, Inc., the world leader in the development of Brilliant Aiming Solutions™ for the military, law enforcement and hunting markets, introduces the Trijicon 4×32 ACOG® (TA31RCO-M150CP) to the consumer market. Previously only available to the military and law enforcement market, the Trijicon 4×32 ACOG is perfect for varmint or big game hunting with an AR rifle or plinking at the range.
The ACOG is the official rifle combat optic of the U.S. Marine Corps and the Trijicon 4×32 ACOG is standard issue for all Special Operations Forces. This new to the consumer market 4×32 ACOG is the official optic of the US Army. Like the military, hunters are searching for an optic to add to their arsenal that is rugged, dependable, and operates in critical situations – and Trijicon has answered the call with the introduction of its exclusive 4×32 ACOG into this market.
The Trijicon 4×32 ACOG incorporates the innovative Bindon Aiming Concept™ (BAC) – a revolutionary both-eyes-open aiming method that provides the shooter with “instinctive” target acquisition and increased hit potential. The reticle features a red chevron aiming point and incorporates a Bullet Drop Compensator (BDC), which offers additional aiming points out to 800 meters. Weighing in at a mere 16.2 ounces and measuring 7.3″ L x 2.1″ W x 2.5″ H, the Trijicon 4×32 ACOG is lightweight, versatile and mounts to any MIL-STD-1913 rail using the supplied mount.

Fully multi-layer lens coating per MIL-C-14806A provides for maximum optical performance in any light. Additionally, the 4×32 ACOG offers improved engineering of the +/- 20 MOA (two clicks per inch at 100 yards) external adjustment system. The newly improved system provides faster adjustment speed in the field as well as a completely waterproof design even when the caps are removed. Waterproof (100 Meters) and nitrogenfilled to eliminate fogging, the Trijicon 4×32 ACOG has a lifetime warranty.
