Vortex Strike Eagle 1-6×24 Illuminated Reticle Scope Review

Vortex Strike Eagle 1-6x24 Illuminated Reticle Scope Review

The Vortex Strike Eagle, let’s check it out. Today we’re going to take a look at the Vortex Strike Eagle. This is a 1×6 illuminated reticle scope. Really a great entry level scope. The thing is 1 to 4, has been kind of the king of the hill for a long time, and it was a very reasonably priced scope. The magnification was just right for three-gun, for, you know, close quarter combat, even for hunting. For, especially the AR, or any semi-automatic rifle. The 1×6 has kind of taken over by storm, but the big problem has been, is

New Trijicon MRO Red Dot Sight Review

New Trijicon MRO Red Dot Sight Review

Hey guys, welcome back. Today I’m out at the range for another first shots video. This time I’ve brought out the new Trijicon MRO red dot sight. A lot of hype right now online about this new red dot sight and I wanted to find out more about it. Now these things are kind of hard to come by. They just released – my local gun shop, Blythe’s Sports of Valparaiso, Indiana got a small shipment in. Of course they went out the door as soon as they came in. Everybody’s really interested in the sight. This is replacing, I

Trijicon AccuPower 1-4×24 Scope Review

Trijicon AccuPower 1-4x24 Scope Review

Trijicon Scopes are known for their quality and ruggedness. I’ve owned a number of Trijicon products over the years, in fact I’m a big fan of the Acog I have the Reflexes but this is the first standard configuration scope that I’ve owned from Trijicon. This is the AccuPower which is very similar to the AccuPoint which traditionally has the dual-illumination of tritium and fiber optics. With the AccuPower this is an electronic scope only. There’s no tritium here, there’s no fiber optic. That has been the trend with Trijicon because a lot of companies have gone with the electronic

Aimpoint T-2 Micro Red Dot Review (HD) Video

Welcome back, everybody Today we’re going over the Aimpoint T-2 optic. The T-2 is the successor to the Aimpoint T-1. Now, I’ve reviewed the T-1 here previously and I made the bold statement that the T1 is the best red dot optic on planet Earth. There are several reasons for that. The T-1 as well as the T-2, really are just bomb proof. If you guys watched Larry Vickers’ torture test where they blew that thing up. They dropped it, they buried it, they did all kinds of stuff to it and the optic just kept ticking. I mean, it

Aimpoint T-1 versus T-2 Comparison and Review Video

Aimpoint T-1 versus T-2 Comparison and Review Video

For years, the Aimpoint T1 has been the gold-standard of red-dot sights. When I first got wind of the T2 in the works, I was curious. They sure look a lot alike. The similarities between the T1 and the T2 are obvious. What about the differences? What makes the Aimpoint T2 unique? The T2 comes with see-through flip covers attached, extending the length 6 millimeters over the T1. Most people would never even notice, but if you use a magnifier, you’ll note that in order to flip the covers open you’ll need more space between the magnifier and the optic.

New EOTech XPS2-300, LWTS, 518, X320 Review

So what we’ve got here at the EOTech range is the XPS2-300 Blackout. This is really cool because it’s already calculated for either subsonic or supersonic rounds. So if you’re running subsonic, you zero it to your subsonic. Your first dot is 50 yards, and then because you have a lot more drop with subsonic rounds, your next dot down is 150. So if you re-zero, throw another magazine in that’s supersonic, then you’re running your zero at 100 yards, and then you’ve got a BDC down to 300. So cool platform here, this one isn’t NB compatible, but it

Okay, Day 2, back here at the Aimpoint factory. Today I’m going to finish my patrol rifle optic and then test-fire it at their indoor test range. I’ve been a big fan of Aimpoint for years. We wanted to come over to see how they were made. A very unexpected surprise when we got here, unbeknownst to me, I had the very rare honor of being able to build my own Aimpoint. It’s actually much more difficult than I would have thought. There’s things that you would think that would be easy about assembling it. And there’s other things that

What’s up next is I’m getting ready to assemble my own Aimpoint Pro. I guess it’s kind of tradition that when you work at Aimpoint, which I’m not an employee, but they are sponsoring the show, you have to build your own Aimpoint site. I have to get in a complete blue suit with the hair net and the whole nine yards, in the clean room, should be really cool. You want gravy with your meatloaf. He’s in the process of bringing parts from where they’re taking out of inventory, cleaned and sanitized and then they’re brought through into the clean room,

Aimpoint sells red dot sights to customers all over the world, not only US Army, but also people in the Middle East and even here in Europe. Eric is going to take us through the factory recommended procedure on zeroing an Aimpoint. Eric, if you’d take it away. I use this type of zeroing target because I think it’s easy. It’s easy for the customer to use. What we have here is one circle in the center. There you should aim. You should put red up in there. That is the only time when I will tell you to, but

All right, gang, Tac TV is going international. We’re at the Aimpoint headquarters in Malmo, Sweden. They were even nice enough to put an American flag up. We’ve been looking forward to this trip for a long time. I’m going to meet up with my friend, Lennart Ljungfelt, who’s the President of AimPoint, and we go back many years. We’ve really been looking forward to this visit. I guarantee that you’re going to dig it too. I’m here with Lennart Ljungfelt who’s the President with Aimpoint, and matter of fact, we go way back. We’ve kind of known each other

Aimpoint PRO – Perhaps Best $400 You Can Spend On An Optic Video

Aimpoint PRO - Perhaps Best $400 You Can Spend On An Optic Video

One of the most difficult things for me when it comes to firearms is choosing the correct optic. In front of me we have an Aimpoint PRO or patrol rifle optic. It’s just a red-dot sight, no fancy reticle, with a 2MOA (minute of angle) dot. The MSRP is about $460, but you can generally find them for $380 to $400 if you look around a little bit. As far as the power source, it’s a very, very small DL13N three volt battery with a runtime of 30,000 hours or more on seven out of ten on the brightness setting.
