Mrg&g you said that you saw units using them in the initial invasion? If ya don’t mind me asking what did you do while in? Interested to hear!
Thumbs up for that ending alone!
Man….I’m kind of bummed. I have the original Colt 3x mounted on my Colt A2 and I was really hoping the Brownells would have regular click adjustments with modern turrets. You just saved me 300.00
Thanks for the review. I noticed you mentioned this scope is designed for 55 grain ammo. Is it going to make any difference on the bdc dial if I run 62 grain?
I’ve see a handful of BRN 601’s with varying greens in their furniture color did you paint yours?
I’m glad you explained the scope ! That is very awesome that it’s made in the same factory as the original.
do yall think this would still be effective on a 10.5 inch pistol with 1:7 twist? i ask because i read that this was made for 20 inch barrels with a 1:12 twist
Shimming the scope mount with a piece of beer can…now that is retro, baby!
Search for a gun in Google shopping. It will not find any matches on any brand that I’ve found. It finds them under the (all) but not (shopping) Has it always been this way or is this something new they are doing?
put mine on and now it wont come off. 10/10
I have the original colt with original colt sportsman ar15
Needs a third pinhole and a jungle.
So did you keep the retro scope on that rifle?
Oh shit 😂 that spin kick
Kudos to Brownell"s for going with a QUALITY retro "Colt" scope rather than the Made in China route. Talking about going old school. Now I have to buy a removable carry handle since all I have is flat tops. I think that guy at the end of the video is Timmy Magnum, the brother of Thomas Magnum P.I.
Ending. A man with talent. Go man!
Ah, yes, the flying shrub kick. Very tactical in 1973.
You mention that each movement of turret is equal to 1 moa. Is that a complete turn of 360 degrees ? 45-90-180 ? For $300 they should have made it click. I’m skeptical. I had an inexpensive Eurolux that was the same exact design. It doesn’t hold zero any more. But I had it for 30 years and was only $60. I don’t mind spending $300 to buy the Retro- but only if it’s worth it and made better to hold zero than the Eurolux I have.
The real video starts at 9:28
Does it hold zero pretty close once you take it off and put it back on?
If you have a BRN Proto upper, does the trigger style charging handle have enough room with this optic mounted? Just curious.
Wow ! Surely blends well with the terrain. That is, well in California.
must… get… bayonet
Got a fucking Ak 47 from a store called *immaglockdealer on wickr* if you need yours you can get from them too
My thumb slipped and I subbed seeing the 70s dude. I don’t regret it.
Nice review and demo. There is a way to estimate range though. you use the duplex to bracket or frame certain objects, either from duplex to duplex or duplex to center (e.g. at 200 yards, an average man’s belt to top of head will frame from the duplex to center. you just need to figure out the MOA value of the fine lines.
The Duff Man pump. Lol.
Do you have any reccomended detachable carry handles? I like the looks of this scope, but my AR isn’t quite as retro.
Wish it came with lens caps
I want it because I can still use my iron sights on my XM-15 with it
Why no bayonet charge!?
You can get the same scope just without the Brownells logo for $100
If it doesn’t hold zero for $12,000 rounds it ain’t worth it. Unless they will resolve the issue with no questions asked – with the lifetime warranty.
Beastie Boys SABOTAGE, eat your hearts out!
Head up fellows. If you purchase a retro scope from Optics Planet you have no warranty from them or Brownells. Joe Harris
DM Slyder is the best name I’ve heard in a good while LOL
Would this scope work on a DPMS .308 carry handle?
Does the BDC turret just turn from 1-500yd setting? Or does it keep turning like an uncapped turret?
zero, put it on paper, then shoot bullseye at 200 with the 200 yd mark to see it’s ability
Is it not advisable to put a modern scope on a m16?
10/10 outro holy shit lmao
Bought my first AR in 1978 and put the 4x scope they made for it at the time on it, I really liked it and if I remember you could still use the iron sights like a lot of rifles I bought in the 70’s and 80’s wish I would have kept that first Colt AR15 $304 out the door came in a white box.
Always sold out aaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Why do you taunt me with what I can’t have?
Hahaha you reminded me of CarniK Con at the end 😈
Consistent 1 MOA groups out of this with Wolf .223 out of my Colt SP1.
How far off is it with 62gr ammo.
