Armament Technology Offers Versatile ELCAN SpecterDR 1.5-6x
The ELCAN SpecterDR 1.5-6x is the second evolution in this family of Dual Role Optical Sights from Armament Technology Inc. Based on the battle-proven SpecterDR design, the SpecterDR 1.5-6x provides higher magnification for greater precision and longer engagement ranges, while still delivering exceptional field of view in its close-quarters combat mode.

The SpecterDR 1.5-6x employs ELCAN’s crystal-clear optics as well as long eye relief, making it ideal for designated marksman rifles and other long-range applications. As with all SpecterDR sights, its magnification and field of view can be changed instantly by throwing a lever. The user can also adjust the sight to illuminate the crosshair or just the brilliant red dot in the center.

Because the reticles are etched in glass, they are plainly visible even when losing electrical power because of battery failure or EMP. Armament.com.
