Fellow plebbitors, we have all circle jerked the rds/mag vs lpvo vs prism debate. I am here to settle the dust. I present the newest meta picrel.
>naturally magnified prism
>etched glass, no worry for battery
>if battery: cr2032>cr123a/aa/aaa
>great for astigmafags
>no need for irons
>extra zoom in capability with magnifier
>piggyback micro rds for CQC
>shorter length than lpvo
The only downside is you have to lean a little farther forward when not using the magnifier. Let's face it, if that is your deciding factor of this meta perfection, then you probably have scoliosis and won't make it anyway.
Why not just use one of PA's 1x Microprisms with a compact magnifier? Lighter and shorter than this even.
That’s like wearing suspenders and a belt. I’ll take one or the other.
>he doesn't maximize his pants support
I bet you're also one of those fags that debates AK vs AR or 9mm vs 45 instead of just having both
>get both the inferior shit and the superior choice
Put if I want to support my pants AND wear a holster without being a douche and shoulder-carrying, how else am I supposed to do things?
> debates AK vs AR or 9mm vs 45 instead of just having both
You can have both AND debate, anon. AR's and 9mm are the objectively superior options.
If you need 15x magnification to hit your target then your target is either too far away for 5.56 to reach or you need to practice aiming more
Not to hit it, to ID it.
Just use binoculars. 15x out of something not built for it is going to suck
>Just use binoculars.
Why use binos when you can just flip the equivalent on your rifle?
>15x out of something not built for it is going to suck
suck in relation to what? I get a clear image to id, even if I am not hitting out to great distances. Maybe I want really a really good zoom in on closer distances?
Whatever works for you feel free to run it. I think when you take it shooting you'll find a lot of downsides. 15x magnification and above is miserable enough to deal with when you're using a scope actually optimized for it.
>add on magnifier
>add on micro red dot
Sounds very stupid
i was thinking the same thing. better with a smaller magnifier though
microprisms are 9oz with mount, same for mini magnifier. add a few oz for a red dot, you're looking at maybe 22oz for 1-15x. super light for the capability and prisms are tough as nails
If you put the magnifer in front does that make it go 1X?
it still zooms in by the same amount, only now the reticle is the same size as without the magnifier. Also, there seems to be less issue with eye relief, although I do need to adjust the focus.
>can't passively aim
Dead day one in the streets, killed by nvg chads.
What are you comparing with nvgs? Of course I run this with a peq.
Is this post written by a bot or do you just not know what any of these words mean?
What do you mean by passive aiming?
Passive aiming is aiming without generating an IR signature.
So using your fucking PEQ is the exact opposite of passive aiming.
Why wouldn't you just use the rmr? Also, what scenario do you need to not use IR, but aim? Why can't you tape switch it to hit? Are you making contact in open fields at long distances or something?
>Why wouldn't you just use the rmr?
>Also, what scenario do you need to not use IR, but aim?
When you're not the only person in the world with night vision
I don't have it on in pic rel, but I do have the vortex micro to piggyback. I did mention it in the original post.
>Okay. So why wouldn't you just hit the switch tape when you need to and release after shots? I would assume that there is flash (even with a can) that anyone with nods can pick up. Then the element of surprise would be up. Still, couldn't i just use the micro red dot piggybacking and adjust for holdover?
welp, I didn't mean to greentext that
>I would assume that there is flash (even with a can)
There is a tiny bit of flash with a can that disappears instantly.
There is a literal laser beacon pointing straight to you with a PEQ.
I'll keep that in mind anon. I wish you luck with bush combat, something I am most definitely not going to do.
>There is a literal laser beacon pointing straight to you with a PEQ.
brass facts just released a vid discussing this with a lot of example footage
since were talking about optics,,, I just got an AUG and am leaning towards an LPVO, im trying to stay in the $400-$500 range. Im leaning towards the burris rt6, they have one at my lgs with a mount and micro dot for $500. will i regret this?
>put a $200 optic on it
>get an optic that makes major sacrifices to have a 1x
>get a red dot too making that pointless
yeah it's a good idea
whats a good option
Nightforce ATACR 1-8
Im sure theyre great but I've never ran an lpvo and dont want to ball out on my first one. really trying to keep it under a grand, is everything in my price range garbage?
Shoot for the previous gen vortex 1-6, shouldnt be hard to fins around $1200-1400.
It’s a little more than your budget but is worth looking at.
Cheaper LPVOs I'd say vortex PST or trijicon credo. Consider lurking reddit GAFS for a good used one. Forget the rmr.
The true meta is running no sights at all and learning how to hit targets purely on instinct.
No reticles, no sight pictures. Just you and your target. Your weapon, an extension of the self. You see the path of the bullets in your mind's eye.
Get fucked retard, this is the real sight meta
ACOG is best if you're shooting man sized targets but lags behind LPVOs for smaller stuff
>paying that much when you can just get a Holosun thats just as good
Don't give me that muh durability horse shit they're Ukraine battle proven now
>if some FAS inbreds use it to shoot other FAS inbreds that makes it good
By that logic Amazon airsoft optics are gtg because they were used in Syria
