First Look: German Precision Optics SPECTRAdot Scope
German Precision Optics is entering the red-dot scope market with their new SPECTRAdot Red Dot Scope. The scope is designed to meet the needs of both tactical shooters and hunters who require rapid target acquisition precise close-range shots using either a tactical rifle, sporting rifle or a shotgun.
The high-efficiency power management of the SPECTRAdot optic is built on a battery runtime of up to 50,000 hours using a CR2032 battery. The optic has a mount that can be used with either Weaver or Picatinny-style rails. There are precise ½ MOA windage and elevation click adjustments on the optic and it is waterproof rated to the IPX 7 standard. The dot inside is 3 MOA and can be adjusted for brightness with six daytime and five nighttime settings, enabling you to use the SPECTRAdot in a variety of lighting conditions.
Red-dot sights have long a favorite sighting system for law enforcement and military personnel especially on the AR platform. Now, however, they have also been finding favor with more and more niche hunters. An example of this might be a guide in Alaska who mounts a red dot on his large-caliber back-up rifle for use in thick cover, as well as a turkey hunter who has found that a red-dot sight is a much more accurate and quick sighting system than traditional front bead or post-and-notch-type sighting systems.
