Elcan SpecterDR Is A World Class CQB Optic

I've been surprised recently to talk to some guys who have never heard of ELCAN or the SpecterDR. I think the Elcan SpecterDR is top notch CQB Optical Sight.

We have another shipment arriving in the next few days...

Re: Elcan SpecterDR Is A World Class CQB Optic

I have an acquaintance in Raytheon Elcan involved in this product (can't say much more) and it is being used extensively in the Army and in SOCOM.

Talking to some of the SOCOM folks out of Crane, there were issues originally [that I think have been worked out by Elcan] that made some people love it or hate it. I think it has progressed into a fine product. It is easy to switch back and forth from 1x to 4x...if I had the money I'd buy one for a woods gun or black rifle in a heartbeat. I can't seem anyone to give me one yet...I'll do product testing and give plenty of long term test feedback. ;)

Yet...

Matt
