Pistol Mounted RDS for Duty & Service Use...is this the future?

May 23, 2017

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.

However, there are many drawbacks also that savvy end users will be aware of and those that aren't need to be.

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.

M855A1 Fact or Fiction?

M855A1 Fact or Fiction?

March 27, 2012

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.
