UNIFORMITY
In the same way that a Glock has been designed to be very simple combat pistol, the Inforce APL is also designed to be a very simple combat pistol light.

SIMPLICITY
The Inforce APL has nothing to remember and nothing to forget. to activate the light you simply turn the bezel. To operate the light as momentary on, press and hold the more than half a second and release. To use the light as constant on and off, simply tap the paddle.

COMPATIBILITY
The light is also designed to fit all the holsters that fit the TLR-1, M3 and x300 lights. The Inforce APL is very small and light weight, which means it is not going to interrupt the profile of the pistol if you want to conceal the weapon.

EASY INSTALLATION
The installation of the APL is very simple. The Inforce APL has an integral universal lock bar with two removable Picatinny bars for cross compatibility between Glock rails and Picatinny.

[REVIEWED] Bushnell TRS-25 Red Dot Sight

BUSHNELL FIRST STRIKE SIZE AND WEIGHT

The Bushnell First Strike is definitely small. It’s less than 5cm`s. It’s abo

ut 3.2cm wide, and it’s about 3.8cm tall. It weighs a mere 60 grams with the protective hood and the battery installed. Since the First Strike is designed to mount on any Picatinny rail, and it is shock proof, even mounting on this light on a pistols slide would not be a problem. The First Strike’s red dot is 5 MOA. This makes it easy to pick up the dot in the lens, and it’s not so large as to hinder shooting at long distance.

ADJUSTMENTS ON THE BUSHNELL FIRST STRIKE

Adjusting the windage and elevation to move the point of impact, is easy. The First Strike comes with an allen key that is flat on one end, to do this. Even though the setting indicators are at 6 MOA, the actual adjustment is non-clicking, giving you complete flexibility to fine-tune the point of impact. The total range of adjustment is 240 MOA.

COATED LENSES AND RED DOT BRIGHTNESS

The one power lens on the First Strike is slightly under 1 inch wide, by 3/4 inch tall. The lens is single layer, so it can’t fog up on the inside. It is multi-coated to minimize or eliminate glare and reflection. Plus, the First Strike is wate

rproof to protect the internal components. The First Strike reflex red dot does not have an on-off switch. Power for the battery to the LED is controlled by a photo cell in the front. When the protective hood is installed, this blocks the light to the photo shell, and the power is almost completely cut off to the LED. When the hood is removed, the amount of light picked up by the photo shell, automatically emulates the brightness of the LED. In low light, the red dot becomes dimmer, so the view through the lens is not obscured. In bright light, the red dot is brighter, making it easy to see.

BATTERY LIFE OF THE BUSHNELL FIRST STRIKE

This low power consumption design gives the First Strike an extended battery life, measured in days, not hours. Bushnell estimates a new, fresh battery will continuously power the LED for just under two days in bright light, 25 days in room light, and nearly 15 months with the photo shell covered.

APPLICATIONS

It is well suited for mounting on any AR platform rifle, pistol or a tactical shotgun. The First Strike comes with a hex wrench for the mounting. You get the hex wrench for the battery compartment access and site adjustment, a cleaning cloth, an instruction manual, a protective cover, and a battery that’s already installed.

[REVIEWED] ATN X Sight HD 5-18

Optical vs. Digital Sight

The ATN X Sight is really smart. This is actually a day and night scope and it’s digital, it’s weatherproof, and shockproof. You can take it out in the field and feel comfortable knowing it is going to survive. The ATN X sight is digital, so instead of looking through the sight light you would with an optic, you look at a 800×600 pixel screen much like you would with a conventional video camera, this also provides a true parallax free view, and a very forgiving eye relief.

ATN X Sight Features

Those are just a few of the features. First, it comes in 2 different styles, a 3×12 and a 5×18 and both have the same exact technology and features. This is the ATN X Sight 5-18x.

The ATN X Sight has so many features that it’s hard to pick your favorites. One of them is the wifi connectivity which will allow you to link your X-sight up to either your iPhone or your Android.

There’s an app, for the ATN X Sight and you’ve got wifi built into the X-sight so you can fully control all the features of the ATN X Sight remotely through your phone. Whether you want to change the reticle, switch between modes or just watch your mate shoot in real time, all of this can be one remotely via your apple or android.

You can control everything on the ATN X Sight straight from your Apple or Android device. Features like brightness, changing it from day to night, even changing the color of your reticle. Anything that you can do on the ATN X-sight you can do through the App.

It’s very cool for me to be able to see on the smart phone exactly what you buddy is seeing through the scope in real time.

ATN X Sight GPS

Another great feature is the geotagging. If you like to go back after the hunt and see exactly where you were on a real map, this is the device for you.

Now, we know all of this sounds really, really complicated but it is not. It is so simple to turn ATN X Sight on and navigate through all the wonderful features, anybody can do it.
Now, when you first receive your X-sight, the first thing you’re going to want to do is make sure that your firmware upgrade is up to date because ATN is adding new features each and every day.

You can actually do that through the app on your phone.

ATN X Sight Video Recording

To record your videos you’re going to need a micro SD card and we highly recommend getting a 32 gigs so you can capture all of your moments with out having to delete video all the time.

The other really cool thing, you can record in 1080p anything you see through the scope in real time. If you make a perfect shot on an animal, you can take it home and show your friends and family. When you’re in the field and you decide you want to record something, it’s literally one click of one button and you’re recording.

ATN X Sight Batteries

The third thing, the ATN X Sight uses AA batteries and we highly recommend you get lithium batteries because they’ll last a really long time.
