I had the pleasure of taking this new piece out for a range session earlier this afternoon, I wanted to come here and write a mini review of it. I know a lot of ARFCOMrs look down on ACOG/Eotec/Aimpoint clones, but this is really worth checking out. For $300 dollars, the quality sets the new bar for future optics.

I took this out to my local outdoor range at 50 and 100yds. It took me about 5 shots to get it to zero. It held steady through about 120rds of fun today. I was plinking steel at 100yds faster than my buddy with his new TA33 Acog.

This piece is a true 1x with a new style of red dot. It sits on a Jarue Practical 1903 Universal mount. The best thing I can say about it is the weight, it is so light, you can't even tell it's there.

My buddy has a state of the art manufacturing center in his spare room, and told me if interest spreads, he will be putting these into production on a limited basis. I told him I would run it by the experts, and see what we can get going. He is planning pricing around 300 bones, give or take as supplies/materials dictate. He's sent 10 over to the sandbox for testing, he wants real world feedback from combat hardened vets.

Contact me if you're interested, he is taking deposits on future orders.

That appears to be about the same quality at the rest of the counterfeits, copies and other frauds perpetrated upon fools.

Nice- that had me laughing......

Put me down for 50.

I'll need killflash on them as well.

The tubes need to be from Charmin and NOT Cottonelle, btw.

Is that the new South American Chile reticle?

Obvious design ripoff of the CrunchPoint

Too rich for my blood.  I don't really need something built so well.  I'm just a plinker.  I'll have to pass, although it looks real good.  I have a suggestion though, you may sell more if the color isn't so shiny.  Maybe offer it with a small can of krylon in any color asked for.  Pink has been kind of common for the girls.

The reticle is upside down. Obviously a knockoff.
Link Posted: 6/1/2008 7:34:12 PM EDT
Looks like this setup would offer a lower 1/3 co-witness. Any pics from behind?

Ummmm...... it's not even vaguely round, and the mount is zip ties...

What the fuck, over?
Link Posted: 6/1/2008 7:55:49 PM EDT


I do like the fact that it's a true 1x.

How's the fit & finish?

Link Posted: 6/1/2008 8:02:29 PM EDT
will it work with the aimpoint clone 3x magnifier????
Link Posted: 6/1/2008 8:30:42 PM EDT
He needs to get it manufactured offshore

Zip ties are for high speed-low drag users.

Is that DuraCoat? I used black electrical tape on mine
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 12:26:22 AM EDT
Can you change the reticle color?? thing looks awesome, but i want a blue reticle.

Looks legit -- put me down for 1 when you start mass production  
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 8:17:11 AM EDT
Does it come in Coyote Brown??
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 8:20:32 AM EDT

I thought you had it covered in a plastic bag so as to disguise it from other copiers.
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 8:22:46 AM EDT
We need a group buy.
Link Posted: 6/2/2008 8:24:28 AM EDT
Cheap knockoff.  The real ones are painted black inside.

This is perfect for desert environments.

I especially like the 'tip to clean' feature.

I've been looking for a precision optic for my Chey Tac, I have a Bounty Paper towel body... what kinda pricing can he get me for custom work???
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 9:36:44 PM EDT
Maybe your friend would be interested in buying the rights to my product.  I don't have the funds to put it into production at this point in time.
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 9:43:17 PM EDT
Is there a GAO number? Is it Milspec?


Never mind. I see it's a prototype. Those will take forever to reach the civilian market.
Link Posted: 6/3/2008 9:54:26 PM EDT
Is it back ordered at Sporstsmans Guide yet ?,
But still charged my credit card.
Or did Botach forget to ship it this time.
