It would not be wrong to suggest that weapon sights have been a significant part of small weapons. For infantry, these weapon sights would play a considerable role in the field. Weapon sights are also important for the other kinds of guns used by soldiers.

Also known as scopes or tactical sights, these military equipment pieces are optical devices helping with the aim of the shooter. It enables a shooter to align the weapon with the target using crosshairs or a laser. AGM Global Vision offers various kinds of weapon sights coming in reflex, laser, telescopic, and peep forms.

Let us delve into the aforementioned sights briefly:

Reflex sights

These regularly used sights have been ideal for the military. Reflex sights would be used with heavy recoil firearms. The holographic weapons and red dot sights come under this category. It would reflect a reticle image onto the combining glass. The image would be superimposed on the target. These non-magnifying sights would offer several features for adjusting reticle brightness. These versatile sights could be mounted easily in different ways. It caters to the user a significant benefit of using these sights differently rather than relying on a single position for the sight.  A soldier could use reflex sights as military equipment in different mounting positions on his weapon.

Laser sights

The military uses laser sights, most of which are reflex sights. The thermal weapon sights would enhance the target. As the name suggests, laser sights would enable the shooter to place a laser spot on the target for aligning the gun barrel. The red dot has been the most common of a laser sight. Nonetheless, the infrared diodes would be perfect for dark conditions. Most laser sights would combine infrared diodes and red dots for flexibility and versatility. Laser sights would be ideal for various environments.


Telescopic sights

The infantry uses telescopic sights. The devices would provide the shooter with several benefits inclusive of magnification. It would be pertinent to mention here that variable magnification has been relatively common for sights used by the military. Using the variable magnification feature, the shooter would enjoy the additional accuracy, as the object seen in the glass would appear closer than it is. Apart from magnification, you could also make the most of two essential features for telescopic sights –

  • Eye Relief

Night vision devices

Additionally, sights have been a single piece of military equipment specifically designed with night vision. Several pieces of gear would be classified as night vision devices. Night vision devices would also include weapon sights for military use.

The night vision device would enable the produced image in levels of light approaching darkness. It uses an automatic gated power supply system regulating the photocathode voltage. The night vision device could easily adapt to a darker lighting environment. It has been great equipment for different military weapons.
