Aimpoint P.R.O., the optical system with unbeatable quality

Aimpoint has manufactured quality optics for the past 35 years. Aimpoint PRO or the Patrol Rifle Optic is the best option for you to purchase a quality optical system without having to spend too much. It is a bargain at $400 online to get an optic system that is so durable, rugged and simple by a reputable company like Aimpoint which has put a lot of effort into building this optic.

Lesser features with uncompromised quality
The Aimpoint PRO gives you the option to scale down some features when required without entirely taking them away. The Patrol Rifle Optic developed generally for use in Law Enforcement has forty levels of brightness in both red dot and Night vision. They have now switched to standard aluminium housing from the previous extruded aluminium and have also changed the battery compartment. It has half an inch of Minutes of Angle (MOA) at 100 yards as opposed to one fourth of an inch. This is how they have brought down the costs; they just fine tuned some features which are unnoticeable and have left the quality uncompromised.

Aimpoint uses the same Advanced Circuit Efficiency Technology they have used in every reflex sight they have made till date. What they have cut down on is expensive manufacturing methods. They cut down 5 mm on the glass and use a different mounting method. They switched to a smaller and lighter battery that lasts 30,000 hours as opposed to 50,000 or 80,000 hours. The battery is a little difficult to find in the market and the fewer brightness option leaves the high settings a little too high as the range is limited. The gears and adjustment dial is more exact which have greatly shrunk the price.

What is commendable is that they have not compromised on the quality so as to single-handedly lose the name they have fought to build for themselves over the years.

The unbeatable quality
This Aimpoint PRO is perfect for those who want quality at a lower price. For those who are very particular to the range it offers in its different settings options should go for another pricey product that Aimpoint has to offer.
The reliability and simplicity of the product make up for its price for sure. The features are enough for the price you pay. The quality is unbeatable and will be a great factor in not changing your mind about this product. To be precise, its simply value for money.

Accessorize Your AR 15

AR 15 is a semi-automatic rifle which has many variants. Before you pick your AR 15, it is advisable that you check the specifications of all the variants and judge for yourself which would be the best one for you. Remember, your AR 15 has to be handled with extreme caution and expertise, as it’s quite dangerous a toy. Even if you only shoot clay balls and tin cans, you need to do it with precision every time you shoot, in order to prevent injures to yourself and any other person.
Once you have purchased your AR-15, you might want to glam it up a little. You have various options to accessorize your AR-15, thanks to manufacturers and distributors who supply their products globally. However, no matter how you modify the AR-15, at the end of the day you need to be comfortable with your instrument.

What’s on the list?
The range of AR-15 accessories is an extensive one. AR-15 accessories include different varieties of Upper Receiver Parts, Lower Receiver Parts, Magazines, Optics, Flashlights, Bipods, Lasers and many more. AR-15 accessories are available at your nearest arms and ammunitions store and also on the internet. However, you need to be very cautious while buying AR 15 accessories as your transaction must comply with domestic and international laws, whichever is applicable for that particular transaction. The sale and purchase of arms and ammunition are under the strict surveillance of law, and any derogatory action from your end might lead to severe repercussions.
One thing that you need to keep in mind when you purchase AR 15 accessories, is that the expensive items are not necessarily the best ones. AR 15 accessories are manufactured by many different companies, hence the difference in price.

For example, in terms of magazines, the AR-15 TAPCO 30 ROUND MAGAZINE is priced at $16.99 whereas the Polymer AR-15 30 Round 5.56/.223 Magazine is priced at $26.99.
Similarly, to emphasize on the difference in price, let’s take another example of AR 15 Bipods. The AR-15 Universal Zytel Clamp-On Bipod is priced at $10.99 whereas the NcStar Adjustable Precision Grade Bipod is priced at $34.99.

So, the point is, for beginners, it is recommended that you do not go for the most expensive items if you find a cheaper substitute which meets your requirements without compromising with the quality and efficiency of the product. As long as they are able to justify their functions, all the accessories, irrespective of their prices, are good enough for beginners.

Shopping for a Polymer 9mm: We Test CZ, Sphinx, & Walther

Shopping for a Polymer 9mm: We Test CZ, Sphinx, & Walther
We recently had the good fortune to have three interesting 9mm polymer-frame handguns come our way. Two of them are new to these pages, the Walther PPX M1 No. 2790025, $450; and the Kriss Sphinx SDP Compact, $1295. This marks the first time we’ve ever tested a Sphinx of any sort, and the PPX is a new model. They were joined in this shootfest by a handgun we’ve tested two times previously, the CZ USA CZ 75 P-07 Duty, $528, but in a new variation, the No. 91178, which has tall sights and a threaded barrel to accommodate a suppressor. Those seemingly minor changes to what has been a Grade B gun improved it in our eyes, even if we weren’t going to fit it with a can.

Outfitting Your Rifle: We Try Triggers, Stocks, and Magazines
In the September 2013 issue we tested three of the AR-15 rifle types, and found some limitations among them. For example, we replaced the horrid trigger in the Bushmaster Carbon-15 with one of the excellent Geissele (pronounced GUYS-lee) SSA-E triggers. That trigger was such a revelation we immediately wanted to replace the triggers in the other two with the aftermarket ones on hand, but waited until now to try them.
