Larry Vickers Initial Impressions On The Aimpoint Micro T-2

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014


On his Facebook page, Larry Vickers wrote a brief post on his initial impressions on the newly released Aimpoint Micro T-2 red dot sight:

Ok it’s here – Aimpoint Micro T-2

I expect to be able to shake it out very soon and give you my take after live fire – initial impressions are very positive;

1) clarity – looking thru it the view seems a bit more clear side to side with a T-1 but I personally never felt that was an issue before so not a huge advantage in my book

2) flip up lense covers are very nice ( they are see thru ) – on a T-1 I use the TangoDown IO cover and love them but the option to see thru is nice; thumbs up

3) protected top adjustment – no downside here in my book; just makes it more rugged. FYI it means you only have one ‘double pronged’ cap to adjust with on the optic – not two like on the T-1

4) extended battery life – what’s not to like about that ???

My call is if you own T-1’s or H-1’s you won’t be selling them to buy T-2’s but going forward the T-2 will be the preferred option depending of course on price and application

Kudos to Aimpoint for bringing another flavor of red dot sight to the market and in particular another variant of the Micro – my personal favorite and the RDS that redefined excellence in the marketplace.

SureFire 3P Eliminator 556 Flash Hider

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014


SureFire has just released a brand new budget-priced, military-grade flash hider for AR-15 variant weapons that they claim reduces muzzle flash by over 99%. The Eliminator is a three-prong design designed to fit AR-15s with 1/2×28 muzzle threads, and duplicates the key functional design elements of the SureFire SF3P-556-1/2-28 flash hider. Worth noting is, unlike the SF3P, the Eliminator isn’t compatible with SureFire SOCOM suppressors.


The Eliminator is precision machined from US mil-certified steel bar stock, with single-point cut threads for optimum thread interface, and treated with a black Melonite finish that protects it from harsh environmental conditions.
