FYI, the GRSC 1-6x24 FFP Combat Rifle Scope (CRS) with the General
Purpose Combat (GPC) M4-62 [Horseshoe (HS)], Bullet Drop Compensating
(BDC), reticle is now available for sale. Sales of the CRS began in
August, with the first couple of shipments selling out quickly. Our
third shipment just arrived and the CRS’s are ready to go.

I believe GRSC/Norden Performance is the first company in the world
to have produced/offer for sale a 1-6 scope with a FFP reticle. The
CRS project has been in the works for several decades.

The first two generations of the 1-4x24 CRS with the FFP HS BDC
reticle have been on the market for several years – setting a trend
for the tactical scope segment. Many scope companies are now moving
in this direction. The 1-4 FFP CRS's were produced to test a concept.
From the very beginning, the objective always has been to produce a
1-6 CRS with a FFP reticle, which, until now, never had been done
before.

This project’s goal was to make available for our war fighters a
high quality 1-6 CRS that would help to keep them alive in combat. To
achieve this objective, the CRS with the FFP GPC M4-62 reticle was
designed to cover the full spectrum of combat – from CQB distances to
the maximum effective ranges of modern assault/battle rifles, in both
day and low light environments. I felt that CQB was the most critical
area of performance for the CRS. Up-close and personal, you need to
be faster than your enemy or you will be dead. In this situation is
where the GPC HS reticle at 1x really stands out – giving you the
speed and accuracy similar to a red dot gun sight.

For precision at any distance and ranging your target, dial up
the magnification and use the BDC reticle. The BDC reticle is based
on the size of an average human body and uses a 10'' ranging scale. I
call this the "rule of 10.” This is a very fast and simple ranging
system and, more importantly, it is easy to remember when the bullets
are flying and people are dying.

All things considered, I am very pleased with our new 1-6 FFP
reticle CRS. If you are in the market for this type of scope, I hope
you will take a look at our new CRS.

For more information on the CRS, please visit our web site,
grscinc.com. For info on the 1-6 CRS, click on the picture of the 1-6
scope.

Thank you.

It looks very nice, Ed.

Have you ever thought of making a variant with other BDCs, especially 7.62?

Ed, glad they are selling well. I cannot say enough good things about my 1x4.

About 1,000. I don't think there is a cheaper 1-6 out there.

very interesting. I am in the market for a variable power. Mostly looking at the 1-4s but the 1-6 would be optimal. Would like to use if for my personal weapon because I shoot that the most, however plan on taking it on the next deployment. Waiting for more people to post reviews on dependability and durability before I drop that kind of cash site unseen. However this is VERY promising. I love the HS reticle and the idea of the stedia based ranging system.

What optic are you issued for deployment?

Here's a video of my daughter Jamie shooting the Rob Arm XCR and the new 1-6x24 CRS shooting at a 14"x14" target @ 240yds in day and low light conditions.

Also I will be at the Grizzly Gun Show in Joshua Tree Ca. this weekend. I will have the 1-4x24 and the 1-6x24 for demo and for sale at the show.

This is a very nice looking scope.

How long is the battery life?

I've got the new 1-6x24 CRSs mounted on my 16" & 18" FALs. Hopefully in the next few weeks I will be able to compile some data on how the .308 matches up with the .223 M4-62 Reticle.
Thank You

Been out to the range a couple of times with my new GRSC 1-6x.
I own both the 1-4x and the new 1-6x scopes.

The quality of the glass and the extra magnification was well worth the higher price I paid for the 1-6x.
My 1-4x scope is still an excellent scope for the money, but I think I'll sell it and buy another 1-6x soon.

Keep up the good work.

Specs are in the table on page 1.

I just noticed on Zulu-77's pics that the turret caps look different than any I have seen on this scope before. Have they been updated to include a battery compartment?

Yep, the caps have been updated to include battery storage.

I was thinking the same thing. You could buy 2 to 3 really good scopes for that much rather than just having one.

This looks like a very promising scope. I have one of your early Valdada collaborations with the mil marks as opposed to the BDC reticle used in your current offerings. I'm curious about one thing, you state that these were designed with the military in mind yet everything is in yards, why not go with meters? Or was this simple a choice made so that you could appeal to the widest audience, ie US civies, as well?

The 1-6x magnification, coupled with the reticle design does sound like a very promising do it all, combat optic. I know that I've been frustrated by the fixed 3.4x Elcan that we use in the Canadian Forces, especially since our reticle does not have a BDC reticle.

I suppose that depends completely on how you define "really good."

$1,000 for an optic that has 6x magnification range is quite reasonable in my opinion. Are there other 1-6x optics on the market at <$1k?

I'm very interested to see how the reticle works for a 16" 308 at out to about 500 yds.
