    Brownells retro carry handle 4x

    I haven’t seen discussion of this yet, so here it is. Brownells is now offering a retro carry handle mounted 4x optic.


    From the website:
    “Retro Looks, Modern Function - The Right Optic for Your Retro Rifle!

    We actually tracked down the original company that manufactured the Colt® AR-15 optics of the 1970s and asked them to build a new one for us as close to the original as possible - right down the yellow inspection stickers. Like the Retro Rifles themselves, the Brownells Retro 4x Optic has updated technology under the hood. The result is a scope that looks just like the original but has optical clarity and performance that are head and shoulders above it.

    Fully Multicoated lenses are fog and waterproof
    BDC click-adjustable elevation turret
    Manufactured in Japan with high quality internals and lenses
    The Retro 4x Carry Handle Optic sports a simple, intuitive fine duplex reticle, like the original, and an elevation turret with BDC (ballistic drop compensated) clicks that closely match modern .223/5.56 55gr and 62gr ammo. As its name indicates, the Retro 4x comes with an integral carry handle mount that easily attaches to most AR-15 carry handles - no tools required.

    As with all products we sell, this scope is fully backed by our Forever Guarantee.”

    Price is $299.99

    Gee, thanks Brownells. I guess I didn’t really need to waste $300 on food next month.

    I love it. The only thing that has stopped from buying it is the hideous “retro” logo on the top.

    But knowing me, I’ll probably cave soon, and order it anyway.
