ACO_RF
Chantilly, VA, October 20, 2014 – Aimpoint announced the release of a new lower-cost, carbine oriented optic. Coming in at a MSRP of $393, the Aimpoint Carbine Optic (ACO) is designed specifically for the AR15 and M4 rifle. The ACO comes out of the box equipped with a mount that will provide “absolute co-witness” with most AR15 iron sights. The ACO is completely waterproof and offers one year of battery life for the 2 MOA red dot from a single 1/3N battery. Branded Flip-cap covers, ARD and spare battery holders will be available to setup the ACO for your specific needs. Continue reading

Geissele to give Tac-Con some competition?

IMG_4319_1080 Recently Geissele Automatics posted a video on their YouTube page (seen below) of a trigger producing less than .1 sec split times on a PACT Shot Timer. Immediately the internet blew up with speculation that this may be Geissele’s new “three position” trigger. That was discussed on this AR15.com post.

If speculation is correct, this trigger would have the standard “Safe” position and function like the current Geissele SSA in the “Semi” or “Fire” position. The slick part of this system is that the selector could them be rotated to the third position that is usually reserved for full-auto rifles. In this third position, the trigger would function similar to the Geissele SD3G trigger with a super short, single stage pull. If this would indeed produce the 0.1 sec split times seen in the video it would keep up with fully automatic rifles. Continue reading

“How Silencers Work” animated graphic from SilencerCo

SilencerCo recently released this really slick looking infograpghic demonstrating how silencers (or suppressors if you please) work. The graphic notes that silencer ownership has doubled since 2011. Unfortunately there is still a lot of misunderstanding about silencers. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard people say that silencers are illegal or that only police and military are allowed to have them. Education is key. Adding a silencer to a rifle or a pistol simply makes the firearm safer to use and more enjoyable for all involved!
