Burris Introduces New Generation Red Dot Sight

GREELEY, Colo. (March 6, 2012) – Burris is pleased to announce the introduction of the latest generation in red-dot sights with the launch of FastFire™ III – the ideal sight solution for pinpoint accuracy on handguns, shotguns and rifles. The FastFire III is extremely fast, rugged and low profile. This newest addition of the FastFire line is ideal for tactical applications with the choice of either a 3 MOA or an 8 MOA dot.

“Since their introduction, our line of FastFire sights have become a favorite of hunters and shotgun users alike,” said Rob Siemers, general manager. “With a new design and upgraded features, the FastFire III will continue to be the ‘go to’ choice for shotguns, long guns, AR platforms and pistols.”

The FastFire III has several new features that make it even easier to use. The battery access on the FastFire III is now top-mounted, making it easier to change. The windage and elevation adjustments have been upgraded for finer tuning without a special tool, and a convenient power button provides three manual brightness settings, as well as an automatic setting. And, to make certain your battery power doesn’t run out before your task is accomplished, a low-battery warning indicator has been added to this new generation FastFire.

The FastFire II is still available with its 4 MOA Dot. Both models simplify the act of aiming, eliminating the need to focus on the front sight while aligning it with the rear sight and target. Simply place the dot on the target and fire. Both models are lightweight-weighing in at 1 ounce-and are completely waterproof. They are rugged and impervious to the elements and punishing recoil of large-caliber firearms. The lenses are high quality, precision ground and polished to exacting geometrics to virtually eliminate parallax.

Both the FastFire II and III fit either Weaver or Picatinny rails and can be purchased with or without the mount.

The new FastFire III will be available at retailers the first quarter of 2012 for a suggested retail price of $239 alone, or $249 with the Picatinny rail mount. The popular FastFire II is available now at retailers nationwide with a suggested retail price of $199 sight alone and $209 with the mount.

Global Outfitters Selects EOTECH’s HHS1 “Best of the Best” for Turkey Hunting

This is not an unclad video game warrior it is the Vitruvian Man, circa 1487. Also known as the Canon of Proportions or Proportions of Man, this pen and ink on paper is arguably Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous work (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitruvian_Man). Accompanied by notes based on the work of famed architect, Vitruvius, it is said this image exemplifies the blend of art and science during the Renaissance provides the perfect example of Leonardo’s keen interest in proportion.

A panel of experts selected by Global Outfitters will draw inspiration from the Vitruvian Man to define the art and science of modern turkey hunting as they establish “The Ultimate Turkey Hunting Setup”. Global Outfitters President, Sam Hall, states our panel will outfit and arm hunters much like modern day video game warriors to take the field in search for the most allusive of turkey species, the Eastern. And who better to test our archery setup than acclaimed super human and master archer, Byron Ferguson. And for the gun hunter we have selected World famous hunter, Dr. Warren Strickland, who accomplished a double Grand Slam in 2011.

Global Outfitters adds the second optics selection to “The Ultimate Turkey Hunting Setup”. For turkey hunters, target ranges vary in ever-changing hunting conditions. The EOTECH Holographic Hybrid Sight I, w/ G33STS (HHS1) (http://www.eotech-inc.com/products/sights/hhs2) provides a solution for engaging ALL GAME in Close Quarter situations, quickly transitioning to a 500m targeting.

Instant transition is achieved through a Quick Switch to Side (STS) mount that offers a simple, quick disengagement of the magnifier. This durable, Night Vision compatible system offers wide field optical performance with superior light transmission for visibility in extreme low-light conditions. The HHS I and HHS II are Featured in the Blockbuster Hit

Final product selections to “The Ultimate Turkey Hunting Setup” will be announced on March 12th. Chattokee Lodge in Northeast Alabama and Goodman Ranch in East Tennessee will host the hunts, and Global Outfitters will chronicle the events that include expert panel discussions on each product selection.

Turkey hunters everywhere can keep up with the progress and contribute to the process by visiting GlobalOutfitters.com. The entire program will be documented and reported as it unfolds, then aired on Pursuit Channel this Fall in documentary format on The Global Outfitter Show.

Trijicon Unveils New SRS Reflex Sight

Wixom, MI – The profile length of the new Trijicon SRS™ is short and the advanced list of features is long, as the innovative products continue from Trijicon. The new Trijicon SRS (Sealed Reflex Sight) is a reflex-type sight with a unique optical design, housed in a body length of only 3.75 inches that virtually eliminates the “tube-effect” common with other, competitive red dot sights. The result – a field of view that essentially provides no obstruction to shooters. That means lightning fast target engagements at CQB distances with no distraction from the shooter’s situational awareness. The SRS is ideal for military, law enforcement and recreational applications on a variety of firearm platforms from AR’s to shotguns.

Equally impressive is the technology built into powering the LED lighted 1.75 MOA aiming point that includes ten brightness settings – including three NVG settings. The SRS is powered by a solar panel and a single, common AA battery. This uniquely patented configuration allows the user years of illumination life from a single battery by offering an intuitive “solar assist”, that is, drawing on battery power only when the solar cell requires additional energy support for illumination based on ambient conditions.

The Trijicon SRS™ is built to endure the rigors of extreme in-the-field use and carries the same stringent testing requirements as the renowned Trijicon ACOG® line of sighting systems. Additional features include a parallax-free objective lens, an auto-locking, self-adjusting level mount and waterproof-tested performance to fifty meters.

The new Trijicon SRS™ will be available at retail in February 2012.

For more information on Trijicon’s new SRS™ (Sealed Reflex Sight) with patented solar and battery-powered reticle, and the complete array of Brilliant Aiming Solutions™ for the hunting, shooting, military and law enforcement markets, contact Trijicon®, Inc. at (248) 960-7700 or visit www.trijicon.com.

Aimpoint Announce 2 MOA Micro T-1

Aimpoint, the originator and world leader in electronic red dot sighting technology, has announced the addition of a 2 MOA Micro T-1 and Micro H-1 sights to the company’s product line. These new 2 MOA versions are available immediately, and will be offered alongside the current Micro series sights including the 4 MOA Micro T-1 and Micro H-1.

Since its introduction in 2007, the Aimpoint Micro T-1 has become the worldwide standard for compact reflex sights for professional use. Law enforcement and military end users have embraced this sight for its compact size, extreme durability, and extremely long battery life. During a 2009 product review session involving professional end users, it was decided that a smaller sized red dot reticule was desired. As a result, Aimpoint is now proud to announce that the Micro sights with the 2 minute-of-angle (MOA) red dot have been added to the Micro series of sights.

“The launch of this new product required a great deal of engineering and testing to make it possible. On a sight this compact, it isn’t as simple as dropping a 2 MOA emitter into the existing package” said Ralf Wiklund, Vice President and Technical Manager at Aimpoint AB. “This modification required a sizeable investment in new technology in order to make the new product possible, but this new technology has also opened some new doors to us in terms of future product possibilities”.

Both the Micro T-1 and Micro H-1 sights are experiencing high demand from end-users who understand the performance benefits that a high-quality compact red dot sight offers, as well as the fact that these sights feature a dependable design that will not be affected by weather or severe environmental conditions. Many compact sights offered by competitors feature an “open” design which can allow the functional parts of the sight to be blocked by dust, sand, mud, blood or even rainwater. The sealed design of the Aimpoint Micro sight ensures that no matter what the conditions, no foreign matter will ever come between the emitter and the lens, and this also makes the product absolutely waterproof to 25 meters.

The Micro family of sights can be mounted on nearly any individual weapon platform including: pistols, carbines, personal defense weapons, and sub-machineguns, and the Micro T-1 is compatible with all generations of night vision devices. The Micro sights are also ideal for use with Aimpoint’s wide range of accessories including the 3X Magnifier, and Concealed Engagement Unit (CEU). Both the Micro T-1 and H-1 can operate for up to 5 years of constant- on use, using just one CR-2032 battery.
