Torque to snug with a 1/2” driver in a pinch, but 55-65in-lbs with a torque wrench would be ideal. Then paint marker the nuts and upper for witness marks.

    Make sure the turrets have caps so Pvt. Schmuckatelli doesn’t inadvertently knock his zero off, but can still dial if needed after taking the caps off. Equip the caps with safety cables retaining the caps to the optic body so they cannot be lost.

    Not much more needed to private proof the optic.

    Train everyone to run the optic on 1X as a default and crank on more magnification as needed. It’s not rocket surgery, I’m sure even the below average crayon eaters in a platoon can be adequately trained to operate an LPV.
    Agreed. Well said. The ATACR is so dope.

    I don’t see the need for an LPVO for the majority of combat arms folks. The Acog does everything required. Maybe there should be greater emphasis on marksmanship and training. When the majority of folks can shoot to the capability of current equipment then we can talk LPVO
