Facts and Fictions

rifle barrels
Assuming barrels of the same contour, which these are not, accuracy-wise the odds are with the shorter, stiffer barrel. With iron sights, however, the longer barrel with its longer sight radius would have an advantage in aiming accuracy.

As a young and impressionable youth preoccupied with guns and hunting, I heard a lot of “facts” regarding both that I’ve long since learned are untrue. What is amazing, however, is how Continue reading Facts and Fictions

Solution for Non-Magnified Aiming

Trijicon-RMR-0626131Non-magnified aiming is arguably much faster than looking through a scope, but iron sights are generally less accurate, and may be hard to see in low light conditions.

Trijicon’s Ruggedized Miniature Reflex (RMR) optic may be the perfect non-magnified aiming system for hunters who need not only fast shots, but accurate ones, too. Weighing in at a mere 1.2 ounces, the RMR provides hunters with fast and accurate both-eyes-open shooting without the excess bulk and weight of larger red-dot sights or traditional scope optics.

Cape buffalo with a fine double, predators with an AR, spring gobblers with a shotgun or big woods whitetails with a lever-gun: The uses of the RMR are endless! Regardless of your prey, the RMR provides speed and clarity for instant target acquisition without the potential alignment issues associated with iron sights. Users ranging from U.S. Special Operations to hunters of dangerous game have proved RMRs in the most demanding environments.  They’re available in three models–the Adjustable LED, Dual-Illuminated (battery-free) and LED—and all RMR units are housed in an aircraft-grade aluminum chassis and tested to military standards, so they can handle the recoil of even the largest caliber. The RMR aiming dot is precise and visible in any light. Audible click adjustments quickly zero to point of impact, and its CR2032 lithium battery lasts up to two years in the LED version, and up to four years in the Adjustable LED model at mid-setting.

The RMR attaches to most platforms via Weaver-style or Picatinny rail and by the company’s new specially designed custom rifle adaptor mounts. These mounts are available for the most popular double rifles including Sako, Blazer and a variety of others with ribs measuring 11 to 12mm and 14 to 16mm.  RMR adaptor mounts are also available in versatile quick release and gunsmith-ready configurations.

New Arc Xtreme Driver 4 Pin Bowsight

Bow-sight-030813Extreme archers can now have one of the most revolutionary and versatile bowsights in the industry, the Arc Xtreme (A.X.) Driver – 4 pin from Archer Xtreme. The fully machined 6061T6 aluminum sight is constructed from solid billet for precision and strength.  This makes the A.X. Driver light enough to carry on long hunts and tough enough to handle the worst terrain that dares to challenge a bowhunter. Maximum light transmission to the Center Core sight pins is accomplished via Archer Xtreme’s Fiber Harness and 20 inches of super flex fiber optics. The A.X. Driver features four, .019″ Center Core Pins with stainless steel tubes for durability and a true, absolute zero pin gap to accommodate the fastest speed bows.

How many times have bowhunters wished for just one more pin or missed a shot after attempting to stack pins. That will never happen with the A.X. Driver – 4 pin. The A.X. Driver sight has an ingenious micro-adjustment knob for elevation with laser markings for both the horizontal and vertical adjustments. Once your four primary pins are sighted in, you can gang adjust the entire sight to shoot virtually any distance thanks to its unique EDG Elevation Drive Gear system.  No longer will bowhunters be forced to shoot through the clutter of five, six or even seven or more pins!

It takes more than one innovation to be truly revolutionary and the A.X. Driver does not disappoint. The sight picture features Archer Xtreme’s patent-pending HD Fiber Guard Ring system for unmatched peep sight alignment. Hillside and shots from leaning treestands are a breeze thanks to the A.X. Driver’s ability to adjust on both the 2nd and 3rd axis, meaning you leave your worries behind and trust the bubble when making a critical shot. The A.X. Driver comes standard with a full lifetime warranty and is available in Archer Xtreme’s Blackout with red accent knobs.
