Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic Assessment

Developing a weapon nowadays has not been so difficult thanks to the various technologies available today. Moreover, with the uprising knowledge about technology, weapons like guns and other gadgets had improved their performance immensely. Take for instance, using a gun with an aim point is so much better than one that does not have this accessory. This gear may appear useless or too little to sum, but for gun enthusiasts, aim points are truly valuable.

One of the most profound improvements on guns is the use of scopes. Scopes are considered as high technology breakthroughs and one such example would be the Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic. If you are looking to engage in firearms, then it would be worthy to look for something that is “tacti-cool” and these scopes are your best bet.

The Red-Dot and Its Use in an AR-15/M4
In the world of firearms, Aimpoint sights has been recognized well by the use of outstanding red-dot signs in scopes. The Aimpoint Pro got even bigger with the amazing feature that was designed for welfare and technology. Thus, making people believe that this was even more compact and precise.

With this PRO or the Patrol Rifle Optic, the red-dot sight was created to elevate a better performance in shooting at an aim point. And with this, the Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic review has also elevated front iron sights as well. It is said that the dot can cover up a distance of 100 yards. Is it not amazing and astonishing?!

This improved technology for Aimpoint Pro has been designed functionally with an aluminium tube. Upon creating it, the rear cover is made up of a clear window and its lenses are hinged that it provides a better way of sniping things and objects. As a good review for this Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic, one open eye will see the target while the other looks at the capped sight. The dot will run automatically because the Aimpoint Pro is always on.

Another review of this Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic creation is a better understanding that its lens is constructed to protect the shooter and everything surrounding it. Moreover, it will make the scope easier to use on the battlefield. Lastly, the link covers are very useful in all of its knobs.

What else is good?
A red dot sight is considered a function that is easy to manage. Another thing about the red dot sight is its function to lessen the inconsistency of its target acquisition.

Aimpoint Patrol Rifle Optic on a simple glance only slightly moves its point of impact. Therefore, it will make a shooter or sniper see their target on a faster pace. In addition, people using the AR-15/M4 with the red dot needs to make sure that both eyes are open on the target because the gun is considered only on the list of short and medium range weapons. Lastly, Aimpoint Pro has been a favorite of individuals in the world and provided with good feed. For more infor go to http://www.mountsplus.com/AR-15_Accessories/AR-15_Scope_Mounts/Aimpoint.html

Magpul UBR Stock Review

Magpul UBR Stock Review

It is often the case that we change our weapon’s original stocks with a model that is totally inappropriate and often of low quality, just to have that feeling of creating a more adjustable weapon. It is true that for people of small or very large stature a collapsible buttstock is certainly the way to go, but this change often comes at a great cost. It can become extremely uncomfortable to achieve a good cheek weld with an adjustable stock.

There is one high quality adjustable buttstock that still offers you that solid cheek weld you want. This stock is the Magpul UBR. We know that Magpul always creates stocks and accessories of extremely high quality and the UBR isn’t any different. As mentioned already what makes this stock so great, aside from having a truly sleek design, is that it has a great fixed cheekpiece. Whatever your adjustment is you will have that perfect, comfortable cheek weld.
Here are some of the things that make the Magpul UBR stock so amazing… Read More

Aimpoint vs. EOTech : Which is Better

Advantages of Aimpoint Rifles:

  • Aimpoint rifles come with very large knobs which enable users to quickly attach and detach the gun. This mechanism makes the attaching and detaching process very easy.
  • The lens is protected by flip up shutters or covers. For a marksman, lens is the most important part of the rifle and therefore requires extra protection. You can even shoot with the back cover on.
  • The Aimpoint Red dot sights rifles are great in aesthetics and have a very cool legacy look. The look and feel is because of the tubular design of Aimpoint Rifles.
  • 2 Minute of Angle or MOA dot for target acquisition. It is extremely crisp and comes with innumerous adjustments. Generally the adjustments depend on the lighting conditions.
  • Great battery life. It would last at least 3 days without any charging.
  • The design is highly rugged which makes it indestructible.
  • While you are shooting at close range you have the advantage of using both the eyes. All you have to do is bring the dot to the target and squeeze the trigger while maintaining a two eyed vision.
  • It is only compact on rails.

Disadvantages of Aimpoint Rifles:

  • Battery life is great but its 3V Lithium battery is not easily available in the market.
  • Handling covers like leaving covers off and making adjustments is not exactly time efficient.
  • Some consider that 2 MOA dot in Aimpoint slower than HALO dot in EOTech.

Advantages of EOTech:

  • The major advantage that EOTech has over Aimpoint is its HALO dot type of target acquisition. It is way faster than Aimpoint’s 2 MOA dot type of target acquisition.
  • Open Adjustments screws make zeroing and tweaking much faster and easier.
  • EOTech rifles have a 123 Lithium battery which not only last for long time but are also easily available in the market.
  • It comes with a new and innovative check battery feature. It flashes on start up.
  • The design is reliable, rugged and durable. You can drop it from a sufficient height or get it wet, but its functioning won’t be affected in anyway.
  • Its design is much more compact.

Disadvantages of EOTech:

  • EOTech’s blocky design isn’t always loved. Some prefer the traditional Aimpoint design.
  • It has a 2 button on and off option which is more complicated when compared to a single know feature.

Aimpoint Comp M4, the prolific optic system

www.HyperSmash.com

Aimpoint is one of the most trusted names in the optics system and their Aimpoint Comp M4 is one of their most saleable products. It has one of the longest battery lives among contemporaries in the market. The Aimpoint Comp M4 is available for a price of $700 in the market, making it impossible for everyone to get their hands on this fine product. This is not a problem for users who can’t afford it as Aimpoint is known to manufacture similar products of the same quality in a lower price range as well. The reason why it is priced so high is because of its ability to withstand impact, dust, dirt, mud, extreme cold and hot temperatures as well as its ability to function in deep water.

The features
It has a sealed reflex sight which has a 2 MOA (Minutes of Angle) doubt that on its setting to lower parameters can be pretty precise art and over 100 meters. With increasing the brightness it becomes larger to the naked eye than 2 MOA and also creates a nice big ring where the tube meets the glass, which is unnoticeable until you are actually using it. It is more noticeable on focused groups. There are also 7 brightness settings for Night Vision and 9 levels of brightness for daylight out of which the “Extra Bright” turns it into a 40mm red light in your face.

Once you get the sealed covers off the elevation and windage, the sighting is pretty easy.  The half an inch at 100 meter adjustment is covered with anodized aluminium and full gaskets so that they are easy to take off with or without gloves and are strong enough to prevent them from winding themselves off. You do not have to worry about eye relief or parallax because if the red dot is placed on a spot, then it will maintain that line of shot when the trigger is pulled. The life expectancy per AA battery is about eight years and the battery compartment is also fully anodized with a gasket.

The mount
Aimpoint uses their QRP2 mount, it is a quick release mount which is not a lever operated release but a screw down mount with a ratcheting knob. When the mount is tightened onto a rail and will click when it reaches a significant resistance to prevent over tightening or stripping the mount. In all, it is a compact, reliable and rugged optical system which is value for money.
