Aimpoint to Supply 30,000 Sights for US Army - Comp M4S (M68)

dudedad ·
Wonder how much these will cost ... + spares 4 battery caps , pictiny thumb screws & lol - killFlash http://soldiersystems.net/2017/03/23/aimpoint-receives-us-army-contract-for-optical-sights/ The sights will be equipped with a killFlash anti-reflection device, rubber lens covers, and adapters allowing the sights to be deployed on all versions of the M16 rifle, M4 Carbine, and light machineguns such as the M240 and M249.

What mount are they using? I ask, because I want something proven and durable for a .308 gas-gun, and they imply what they are using will hold up to LMG use.

If it's the same mounts they have been using they are the standard Aimpoint mounts with the torque limiting knob.

I've never seen one fail. I am unfamiliar with the term .308 gasser. The 7.62 NATO weapons we issue (M240s, M110s,MK48s) generally get purpose specific optics like an M145 MGO (Machine Gun Optic, ELCAN/ACOG) or a variable power scope. I've seen M68s on M-249s 5.56mm SAWs without issue. You just need to make sure you hear three clicks and inspect the optic to make sure nothing comes lose. I'm sure some of our other LF brothers can probably give you come better info.

+1 There's a current thread talking about inbound glare and reduction methods, not to mention their use in not letting people beyond the muzzle see the red-tinted glint. There's even a comment hating on the killflash in the soldiersystems article, but I have not before today heard anything especially bad about them. Hell, I keep them on when I add a clipon to my systems so am not even worried about light transmission.

Are these 30,000 Aimpoints going to replace existing optics currently fielded by the Army and no longer serviceable, or is the army planning on adding 30,000 soldiers and this is part of equipping this increase?

This is an in-service replacement for the M68s already in use. We've received instructions to turn in older CCOs in the past based on their serial number range. I still have some CompM variants in one of our arms rooms.

I'm really hoping my unit gets these- while Team Leaders and up get ACOGs our joes are rocking CompM's, about half of which are lacking spacers and a lot of the other half are missing battery caps / deadlined. I can't for the life of me figure out why an Infantry unit with M4A1's, M240L's, PEQ15's, and PVS14's has almost no functional CCO's. Since bitching about it and filling out countless 2404's hasn't fixed any in the 4 years I've been there, getting new M68's is pretty much the only way...

kaltesherz - 2404s won't do much for you unless your supply sergeant is OK with turning them in. They have to be code F or code H (basically, nonfunctioning but repairable or nonfunctioning/nonrepairable), and then you'll have to turn them in to your supporting SSA for disposition. It sounds like most of yours are code F. Turning them in will get them off your books and as long as you're MTOE-authorized CCOs you can have your PBO request replacements against them.

Actually, you often can. It will have to be added to your unit property book, but (quite a while ago, now that I think about it) I have picked up items from DRMO and added them to the unit property book, and had them hand-receipted to me. Plasticmag can verify if that is still kosher. However, turning in the broken crap is the right way to start. Unfortunately, with limited time on drill weekends, it can be hard to get to everything that needs doing. Tankersteve

Yep, it still has to get added to the property book. Generally, DRMO equipment (now renamed to DLA Disposition Services if you're looking them up) is easy to get. I used to walk into the warehouse both on FtCKY and here on JBLM, identify what I wanted, do up the paperwork with my supply team, and then take it to PBO. Once PBO blesses off on it it's on your books (which made sense for some stuff, like ear pro, but less so for Crye knee pads). That being said, the warehouse on JBLM shouldn't...

My supply sgt is AGR, but next to useless. Scratch that, he is useless. I've talked to my CO, XO, and PL about this issue before. AT is coming up so I'll try to get someone motivated again, but this is beyond ridiculous. Almost every joe is qualifying on BUIS, yet no one seems to care about their shitty scores because technically they're still qualified. Not to mention we're transitioning to Strykers and severely understaffed (most fire teams are down to 2). But still, every M4A1 should have...

I hate to say it, but you need the buy in of leadership. If you have a slackjawed supply SGT, without the CO approving the turn-in and the PBO working it you're not going to get very far, unless... If your S4 team is good, and you trust them, you can go to them discretely with the S/Ns of the bad optics, explain the situation, and ask for disposition on the optics. Not sure if your S4s can enroll the items in the system for turn in or not, but if they work it with the PBO then you don't need...

Follow on because my edit window closed: Your supply SGT will be forced to turn them in because all transactions are now tracked in the Decision Support Tool by big Army. DST spans active, guard, and reserve, and puts suspenses in the system to hold units accountable. Units which bust suspense are tracked and discussed to the BN and CO level. Once you've divested them (if that works), point out the MTOE shortage and ask for a replenishment through your leadership by e-mail. Not sure where...

Comped Pistols and ALS Holsters PSA

Riafdnal ·
Jim Dexter found an issue with his comped duty pistol and his Safariland ALS duty holster. Placing the pistol into the holster for one handed manipulation with the slide locked to the rear requires the ALS system to be deactivated twice. The first deactivation unlocks the weapon for draw, the second release is required to allow the comp to pass through the locking mechanism.

You just drop the slide before holstering, then reload, and finally run the slide by whatever means you would during a one-handed malfunction clearance. Rick

The issue seems to be with the space between the slide and comp when the slide is locked back. The shoulder of the comp locks into the mechanism of the ALS.

Rather than start a new thread, is there anyone that can point me in the right direction: I killed an H1 today that was mounted on my duty rifle. It's got quite a few miles on it, but I've changed the battery yearly, and never experienced a failure. All of a sudden, it went kaput today. Haven't contacted Aimpoint directly yet, thought I might find better resources here. Thanks.

Californicated Defense Rifle, August 4, 2016

Trajan Aurelius ·
Well since I have taken my evil guns out of California, I need to update my bolt action blaster. I have a stainless steel 5.56mm Ruger M77. I want to mount iron sights, a muzzle break and 3 power illuminated scope. Ruger's have a proprietary scope mounting system for which there is an rear iron sight kit. This fits on the rear scope mount . I would put the scope on a single ring on the front sight mount. Would a bird cage muzzle break be appropriate or would a Vang compensator type...

I believe NECG makes the rear sight kit. In the 7.62 case, get the Ruger GSR, polymer stock (definitely major handling difference vs the laminate) and the XS sight rail if necessary though for an Aimpoint it's not .

If you didn't already have the Ruger, I would have suggested looking at the Mossberg MVP Patrol. Uses AR mags, has iron sights and a rail, and already has a muzzle brake. Don't know if it's legal in California though.

Yeah Dan, the bolt design for it to use STANAG magazines involves a small "flipper" on the underside of the bolt. It's very interesting design, but I'm not sure of the long term endurance and reliability of such a small part essential to function when there are simpler, more reliable designs available.

I'd suggest an NECG rear sight with a banded front sight if one is available to fit your barrel OD. I've also put three front sights on rifles with off sized barrels using a ramp from Brownell's and JB Weld. The original plan was to see if I liked them then get them properly drilled and tapped but after several hunting seasons they are still holding in there. I'd try to fit an RDS to the front action bridge for use out to 2-300 yards and forget any muzzle device Then I'd get a good lever gun.

Re: Californicated Defense Rifle, August 4, 2016

Yeah, I started reading about them after this started. I would think that making the bolt have a face the same as an AR bolt and chamber to match would be easier. Heck possibly even use AR barrels and a nut to attach. However, the fact that no one that actually engineers these things has done that, tells me it might not be so easy. Troy makes a pump action AR, not an ideal firearm in the perfect world, but they claim it is 50 state legal. Seems like it would be a decent option when compared...
