TNVC offers the Pyser-SGI Small Arms Collimator

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

The Pyser-SGI Small Arms Collimator (SAC) series represents one of the most crucial battlefield optical implements available today. The Small Arms Collimator is a precision optical device that allows shooters to confirm zero/ or re-zero weapons in the field, to a high level of accuracy, without live fire. Confirming zero or re-zeroing a weapon is very important in the field. Weapon sights and optics can shift zero from many different factors including airborne insertions, falls, explosions, etc. But, the SAC can also be extremely useful when changing optics, in our case: swapping a day scope for a night vision scope in the field.

Until now, laser boresight devices have been the default means of confirming or re-zeroing weapons without firing a shot. The problem with this is that laser boresighting equipment is inherently inaccurate, causing an M4 to be off by as much as 8 MOA. On the contrary, the SAC is one of the most accurate devices of its kind (accurate to 0.25 mil, 1 MOA). Manufactured in countless variants, the SAC works with irons sights, optical sights, day scopes, and night vision scopes. They are available for rifles, carbines, submachine guns, machine guns, sniper systems, and grenade launchers. Additionally, laser SAC’s are available for use with laser aiming devices.

The Small Arms Collimator has been in use by the British military for over a decade with fantastic results. They are so good that they have caught the eye of many units within the US Special Operations Community and other allied nations. The SAC is easy to use with very little training and does not require a “master weapon.” It does not emit light or any other signature, nor does it require a down range target. A single SAC can be used on any “like” weapon system.

The Pyser Small Arms Collimator is one of the “must have” pieces of kit for any combat unit. The ability to quickly and accurately check a zero or re-zero a weapon without firing a shot is paramount to mission success in non-permissive environments. We are talking about operator safety here. Weapons and their optics can lose their zeros due to anything from a rough insertion to normal battlefield abuse. Without the ability to achieve accurate hits, a Warfighter’s combat effectiveness is substantially reduced. The SAC is the most accurate and proven method of confirming and re-zeroing a weapon. No unit or team should deploy without them for all their weapon systems.

The SAC is extremely rugged and requires no batteries. We especially like this system for its use in swapping a day scope for night vision scope. No longer does a separate night vision-equipped rifle need to be brought into the field. A lot is mentioned about “must have” kit. Well, this is actually one of those must-have items.
