Combat Tactics Winter 2005
The Short Dot Combat Optic
by Tim Lau
Optical sights on combat weapons are nothing new.Despite the outcries of anachronistic reactionaries, combat optics are here to stay.
This point is in no small part evidenced by the Special Operations Peculiar Modification (SOPMOD) Kit for the M4 carbine, which
specified the Trijicon TA01NSN fixed 4x Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight (ACOG) back in the late ’90s. This was a rugged and reliable optic
that increased the lethality of the M4 carbine at extended ranges.
