View Full Version : Hope I didn't mess up too bad, help
March 30, 2006, 16:05
Seeing how bad my eyes are getting, last Sunday Fastprofessor and I put a few rounds thru our AR's with just the iron sights. First time in a long time without glass. Even at 100 yards as I peeped, target kept fading in and out, got fuzzy, freaking dissapered. Yesterday I ordered an ATN Compact Digital Ultra, so I can shoot heads up, eyes wide. I should have done this thread before I bought but I had the money and the itch. Any good comments on this rig or should I just buy a bottle and start drinkin?

Start drinkin', Brother Bree! ;)
Hell! My tired old eyes are just past piss poor, and I still us irons. Just center up the "blur" of the aperature and post; shoot at anything that's NOT the background....that's the target:D
Regards, and a :whiskey:

Wow, ordered it on Tuesday got it on Thursday. Not sure how but am very glad to see it. Ordered it from http://OpticsPlanet.com. best price too, and no shipping. Unit looks good, very well made and all metal. Man o man is it tiny. Not an Eotech but sill woth the money. Not mounted on the rifle yet, still waiting for the mount. Range report will follow.

I bought one last month but haven't had a chance to try it yet. The size is about twice as big as a JPoint/Optima/Docter sight, that's still pretty compact. It's all metal so it weighs a lot more than a JPoint. It's is much smaller than the standard size ATN and about 1/4 the size of an EOTech.
All I've done so far is mount it on a rail to check it out. The dot and or reticule is very sharp and crisp. I was not able to get any repeatability taking it on and off. The rail clamps are not that good. Mount it to your rail and leave it there. There are no markings of clues as to where it is made. It was $15 less than Opticsplanet at Midway with C&R discount.

8 or 9 bucks but I bought a bunch of other stuff at the same time.

IIRC, most ATN products are former East Block country productions. In general, it seems they are pretty decent. Also for decent glass at a fair price, check out Mueller scopes.

I know as a 50 shooter that the ATN's are looked upon with disgust by the 50 cal community.
Their "50 bmg" scopes routinely fail. I wonder how their other scopes would fare on the smaller calibers...223/308?
