  4. ACOGs are being phased in now due to the tritium which is used in susats going past half life and the ACOG being more effective.
    The sight itself is being mounted on a picatiny rail with the edition of another rail for mounting pistol grips,lights and possibly bi pods.
  5. Wish someone would of told me, I just changed a load of light sources the other day. :roll: And have been for the last god knows how many years. :wink:
    There are ACOG'S in use but they are limited as they cost a few quid. :evil:
