Is the LPVO the ultimate optic?

It's only a matter of time before the Army follows the Muhrain's optic choice. There just doesn't exist an optic just as versatile as this. Any cons or setbacks is due to your own lack of skills.

      I'm still of the opinion ACOG+RMR is peak, if only barely so. Though that depends entirely on if you have NVG or not. Eokek is king of you have LARP tubes

        Imo moving your head position to RMR from ACOG is not ideal for quick target acquisition or consistency. I’d rather just use the ACOG. Or better yet, LPVO on 1x. I’m also not a fan of the aesthetics of the ACOG, let alone with an RMR.

    It can be very nice, yes but it doesn't work with night vision. In a warzone where you can't get easy access to batteries in a six month period, having etched glass reticles is essential.

    VCOG is peak last war optic, and the USMC is the only branch who consistently gets small arms adoptions mostly correct. the army already did follow the USMC optic choice, but they bought a shit sour 1-6 that breaks if you drop it

      Armygay here, we have had LPVOs for awhile now in most good units. 5th Group and Ranger Recon were rocking them well before the Marine Corps was.

      I've never seen anyone manage to break one, and we've taken them on two deployments now + training cycles. Of course, I've managed to see someone break a fricking ACOG before, so I'm sure it'll happen eventually.

      Yes, the army bought the XM157 a vortex 1-8x30 LPVO with a projected LCD overlay on the first focal plane and an attached laser rangefinder and ballistics computer that will display a calculated bullet drop for the target distance you're aimed at through the LCD in the scope.

      The FY23 order was for a little over 12000 of them with more orders in FY24 im sure.

    Depends on the LPVO. The Trijicon accupoint 1-6 is a fantastic optic. No worries about your battery operated toy going bye bye with an EMP. They do add quite a bit of weight to the weapon but you just need to lift.

        EMP is a meme, but LPVO having terrible battery life is not. Fiber optic illumination is the way, especially as the Acupoints allow the user to modulate brightness.

                TR26 is more thin, but with a 6x I kind of want some form of drop compensation. Wish they could use the tech from the ACOG to make reticles for Acupoints. Unironically the perfect scope.

          EMP from a nuclear device is smaller than the fireball, that's why they could be filmed in the 40's, if you're worried about nukes because of the EMP you are certifiably moronic

            Zoomer, 40's electronics ran on vacuum tubes, and film is an analog medium. If you think modern transistor based electronics are the same thing thing, then there is no point talking to you.

            The nuke would kill you long before the EMP touched anything, also a massive burst of solar radiation would do the same. Worrying about an EMP in either case is like worrying about an infection when everything south of your pelvis is gone

            What is a high altitude air burst? And no, CME's happen frequently and won't necessarily kill organic life, but can fry everything.

          Triangle make 4x more or less into a dot magnifier combo that weight less, has less moving parts and requires no batteries.
          Always scared to go with the triangle on a 6x, as holdovers would be a b***h with that thick line.

    I have the 1-8 vcog and like everything about it except for the fact that its basically like putting a fricking cinderblock on top of your gun. VCOG on my fully kitted rifle makes my AR feel like a fricking SAW. If I could do it again I would have just bought an ACOG. It makes a lot of sense for the USMC as an organizational purchase especially at the time. Like 4 different rifles, using a mix of M855, SOST, 262 and M855A1. Mildot fixes literally all of these problems with one optic and its beefy enough to be reissued 10 times with no problems.

        Probably fine for moving targets too, you're still removing half the equation (distance/bullet drop) yea wind is still a thing and a proper lead on a moving target is still needed, but knowing roughly how much your bullet will drop almost instantly is still a big advantage over not having that.

    What scope is better is just marginal comfort and effectiveness, how come gamechanging thermals aren't standard yet?
