This month at the 2G-ACM match, I thought it would be interesting to try out a “Ring Sight”. This is the same style of optics used on the FN P90 – the manufacturer marketed it for a variety of applications and I came across one designed for use on an AR carry handle (thanks, Steve!). It is a truly tiny optic, adding almost nothing to the weight or bulk of a rifle. To complement that, I mounted it on a Colt 733 clone, and SBR with an 11.5 inch barrel. The sight picture is just like the P90; a plain white donut that is quite dim. My biggest concern in the match (it really bit me in one of the stages) was finding the reticle when bringing the gun up to the shoulder, as I found it a bit unintuitive. Even so, it performs ed a lot better than I expected.
Naturally, I used the Laugo Alien as my pistol for the match, and it was excellent.
