CAA’s new ACQ-1 red dot reflex sight from MSE is the most fighter friendly sight on the market. Designed by Lt. Col. (Ret.) Mikey Hartman of the IDF, Mikey brought his 20 years of experience as the founder and commander of the IDF Marksmanship and Sharpshooting School, to add to, and improve the features of the reflex sight, making the ACQ-1 the most fighter friendly The AQC-1 is made of lightweight aluminum, weighs only 12.9 ounces, and can operate for 1,200 hours on a 3.6-volt AA lithium battery.
The ACQ1’s 1″ x 1.375″ window provides a larger field of view and quicker target acquisition. This is the largest window on the market today. (other MSE models have an even larger 1. 2″ x 1.375″ window). Two different reticles provide both quickness and accuracy for CQB (urban) and long range engagements. Both reticles have horizontal lines at 3 & 9 o’clock allowing the operator to maintain the weapon on a vertical plane so the bullet trajectory and ballistics are uncompromised. Both reticles have 8 levels of brightness (4 for day and 4 for night) so they can be used indoors, outdoors or from inside a dark building targeting objects in the bright sunlight.
ACQ-1’s unique design does not use a mirror to reflect the reticle so the operator’s position cannot be given away by a reflection of the sun from the sight.
The remote PTT (Press To Transmit) cable enables the operator to keep both hands on the weapon at all times. The PTT cable is used to turn the sight on, change reticles and change brightness levels but cannot inadvertently turn the sight off. PTT cable is removable and it securely attaches to the ACQ-1. ACQ-1 will go to sleep after 30 minutes of non-movement preventing battery drain but the motion sensor turns it back on when the weapon is moved. The sleep mode can be deactivated for ambush scenarios.
The night vision mode allows the ACQ-1 to be used with any night vision devise without blinding the night vision. The low battery indicator provides a warning before failure. Models are available that use AA or 1/2AA batteries. Super rugged design passes the IDF drop test.
Quick detach levers are included on the standard model. Hand adjustable, no tool is required for the windage & elevation adjustment knobs. A complete self-taught course of training and instruction is included with each ACQ-1 sight. Providing a syllabus, day by day training, range scenarios, Zeroing target, accuracy requirements for proficiency levels and more, allowing the operator to train like and achieve the proficiency of professionals. Deliveries start in February 2012. Limited Lifetime Warranty covers everything except abuse & neglect. Commandarms.com.
