The ACULON A211 binocular officially launches Nikon’s all-new ACULON optics family to the world. With seven fixed power and two zoom models, every adventure can now be enhanced with an economically priced quality optic.
Alternate Headline: How many cheap optics can you hang on an AR?
So, I was gonna take a picture of the AR with both a 3×9 scope and a red dot on it just for the comedic value of it all… but as I was mounting it all up I began to wonder if it would actually work out as an effective magnifier for the red dot.
Alternate Headline: Butter Fingers
Yeah, sometimes my carelessness gets the better of me and stuff ends up on the ground. I’m not accident prone or anything like that, but it seems like once every six months or so my fingers get the butter on them.
This time it was the Bushnell TRS-25. Some of you might have read the review I did a while back, but if not the TRS-25 is a budget red dot optic very much akin to the Aimpoint Micro. Its one of the more outstanding budget optics that I have ever seen, and its been running great the entire time that I have had it. Oh, and did I mention that it will only cost ya about $80?
I mentioned this upstart endeavour a while back… They were soliciting online donations to get their product off and running, but they have now decided that its just better to sell to Tango Down. Well done… and it just does to show you that if you build a better mouse trap (and get the whole blog-o-sphere to start talking about it)… yada, yada, yada.
*You know, you Primary Arms guys still have yet to send one of those red dots my way for review. What gives?
