The SOPS-33mm sighting system is the most advanced sight of its kind available. It has the standard light intensity settings (1-8 manual), but this is where it leaves the rest behind with 2-night vision settings to be used with night vision equipment, and a special “Auto” feature that automatically adjusts the intensity to the environment’s ambient light due to the proprietary photo cell.
The PFI RR-Evolution-3G has been designed specifically for use with both 5.56×45 and 7.62×51 16″ barreled weapon systems. The patented 3G reticle is designed to compensate for the ballistic drop of 5.56×45 ammunition to 600 yards and 7.62×51 (168gr) ammunition to 900 yards. It also provides other critical ballistic holdover information that will reduce engagement time and maximize the performance of the weapon system such as ranging brackets for 9″/18″ objects, 0 to 10mph windholds, and impact guidance at low magnification (Rapid Guide). Further, the innovative 3G reticle versatility for the operator to adapt to changing conditions such as elevation and barrel changes. For 7.62×51 (168gr), the right side offers ballistic holds at 500ft elevation, and the left side offers ballistic impacts above 6,000ft elevation or for a 20″ gun at 500ft elevation. The ballistic holdovers indicated on the left side can also be used for 150gr ammunition at 500ft elevation from a 16″ gun.
This scope was designed and built to PFI’s rigid specifications and can take a beating that others won’t. The scope comes with two standard low mount 33mm rings, a flash kill filter, flip up caps, covered target turrets, and heavy duty windage and elevation adjustments that will never leave zero.
Also available is the PFI-QRR quick release mount that is designed especially for this system for fast mounting and dismounting in the field.
