Given the rate products are flying off the shelves at Cheaper Than Dirt! and elsewhere around the country, it’s not worth being too picky in deciding which products deserve flavor of the week treatment, so I am not going to even try. I have already played with a whole goody bag full of new offerings this year and will roll out a handful of new products each week, so enjoy and keep checking back!
Aimpoint CompM4 and M4S
Aimpoint CompM4 and CompM4s sights both include enhanced ACET technology that provide up to eight years of continuous use from a single AA-size battery. Once turned on, Aimpoint sights stay on—there is no automatic shut-off so your optic is always ready whenever you need to use it. The CompM4 and CompM4s incorporate an integrated mount that eliminates the need for a separate ring, and can be customized with vertical and forward spacers to fit a variety of weapon systems.
All CompM4 sights are shipped complete with a QRP2 mount and standard AR-15 spacer. These sights also come equipped with a killFlash anti-reflection device and MILSPEC rubber lens covers. www.aimpoint.com/us
Leupold Mark AR Mod 1
Designed with AR-15, Modern Sporting and precision rifles in mind, the Leupold Mark AR MOD 1 offers elite performance at an affordable price. New reticles, ballistically calibrated BDC dials and Green FireDot illumination draw on Leupold’s proud military heritage.
Offering four magnification ranges: 1.5-4x20mm, 3-9x40mm and 4-12x40mm, 6-18x40mm with Adjustable Objectives; and two models featuring daylight visible FireDot illumination, the Mark AR MOD 1 line covers nearly every situation a rifle can be employed. The new P5 0.1 mil adjustment dials are partnered with mil-based reticles to deliver true mil/mil compatibility. Non-illuminated reticle options include Mil Dot, Duplex or Fine Duplex. Leupold’s green FireDot Tactical Milling Reticle (TMR) and green FireDot Special Purpose Reticle are available in the 3-9x40mm and 1.5-4x20mm models respectively. www.leupold.com
EOTech Model 512 Crossbow
Designed with crossbow hunters in mind, the Model 512 Crossbow sight utilizes the unique properties of holography to create optimal range scaling data in a heads-up display. A pre-calculated ranging scale is projected on the target and measures the back to the belly of a standard whitetail deer (16 inches). Simply position the base of the scale on the belly and read from where the back intersects the scale—it’s that easy.
With the integral ranging pattern, there is no unnecessary body movement or added noise from your tree stand. Both range information and aiming reticle are displayed within the same sight picture to quickly line up your shot. www.eotech-inc.com

The Razor HD 5-20×50 and 1-4×24 meet the demands of extreme hunting situations. The Razor HD 5-20×50 is a state-of-the-art, long-range performer built on a 35mm one-piece tube and packed with more than a dozen unique performance and optical features—including Vortex’s proprietary first focal plane hashmarked MOA and MRAD ranging reticles.

Ideal for rapid close- and mid-range shooting and boasting its own precision-etched first focal plane reticle, you can expect fast handling and deadly accuracy when it gets up-close and personal.
