My history of using Knight's Armament Company products began during my service with the Australian Defence Force and the Australian Special Operations Command. I remember being issued one of the first M4 enhancement kits which were purchased to enhance and upgrade weapons suites for the Counter Terrorist mission.

You've seen me shoot it but I wanted to share with you some reason's why the KAC SR16 is my preferred weapon. Two critical features that I look for in a service carbine are reliability and accuracy, the SR16 gives me both.

Red dots sights on pistols is by no means an innovation in the shooting industry, they have been around for over 20 years and had been used primarily in the competition world to enhance sight acquisition when shooting stages. I first used a service pistol fitted with an Aimpoint 16 years ago and saw a U.S service pistol fitted with a Doctor Optic in Kandahar, Afghanistan in 2001.

Australia is not America.
Australia does not have a Bill of Rights, so the legislatures have more say than America’s over many issues of individual rights, and the courts have less control. Also, Australian’s have no constitutional right to bear arms. This is because the British granted Australia nationhood peacefully where as the United States had to fight for it and ratify its own Constitution with amendments to protect democracy and prevent tyranny and oppression.

I get asked all the time why I have my Aimpoint set on such a high mount? So I thought that I would write a piece on the Redback One methodology and how that relates to our shooting system and weapons set up.
There are several reasons for setting the combat optic on a high riser block and here they are.

To adjust elevation using the factory M4 iron sights, rotate the front sight using a sight adjustment tool, multi tool or the tip of a bullet. To bring the point of impact up, follow the arrow markings on the front sight base. Up will be clock-wise and down counter clock-wise. Each indent or click on the front sight will move the Point Of Impact or (POI) by 1-inch at 100-meters.

There seems to be a lot of talk about the effectiveness of the new M855A1 round ever since its development. There have been reports that argue its lethality, penetration, accuracy and compatibility with the current fleet of service M4s. I just don't think that I buy into these arguments! You cannot argue that the M855A1 has better terminal performance and a better flight path than its predecessor. It has a longer maximum effective range and better accuracy.
