SpecterDR™ Dual Role Rifle Sight- 2011 NRA Publications Golden Bullseye Award Winner

SpecterDR™ Dual Role Rifle Sight is the "One and Only" and now 2011 NRA Shooting Illustrated Optic of the Year!

Midland, ON. (December 17, 2010) - Raytheon ELCAN Optical Technologies and Armament Technology are proud to announce the SpecterDR™ 1-4x dual role combat sight has been selected by the NRA (National Rifle Association) Publications Golden Bullseye Award Selection Committee as the 2011 Shooting Illustrated Optic of the Year.

The Golden Bullseye Trophy will be accepted at the 2011 National Rifle Association Annual Meeting and Exhibit in Pittsburgh, PA in April 2011. The SpecterDR™ 1-4x rifle sight will also be featured in an editorial overview of the Golden Bullseye Awards in the May issues of American Rifleman and American Hunter and the June issue of Shooting Illustrated magazines.

The One and Only Dual Field-of-View Combat Optical Sight

The SpecterDR™ rifle sight, designed to meet the requirements of the USSOCOM for elite SpecOps missions, is the one and only truly dual field-of-view combat sight. The SpecterDR™ 1-4x combat optical sight switches instantly from close combat 1x to telescopic 4x at the throw of a lever.

Unlike zoom sights, the SpecterDR™ rifle sight offers an optimized optical path and identical eye relief in both 4x and 1x modes.

Depending upon the situation, the user may adjust the sight to illuminate the entire crosshair or just a brilliant red dot in the center.

In 4x mode the SpecterDR™ rifle sight offers a generous field of view, long eye relief, and ELCAN’s legendary crystal clear image. In CQB mode, the SpecterDR™ sight has by far the largest field of view in the industry.

The 4x and CQB Reticles are plainly visible even in the case of loss of electrical power due to battery failure or EMP.

Available for Tactical and Sport Shooting Applications

The SpecterDR™ dual role combat sight combines the traditional benefits of a red dot sight together with those of a magnified telescopic sight, providing a wide field-of-view in 1x mode as well as target identification and accuracy at range in 4x mode.

The SpecterDR™ rifle sight offers optimum situational awareness in both magnifications due to generous eye relief and unmatched viewing in low light conditions.

Available in the United States through Armament Technology (www.armament.com) and their network of resellers, SpecterDR™ dual role combat sight offers a new tool for both tactical law enforcement and sport shooting enthusiasts.
