New Compact Optical Sight (Combat Sight) Introduced for Urban Warfare Apps

DefenseReview has info on new FERFRANS FAS combat optic/sight

“This concept started when my instructor for the FERFRANS Full-Auto Course complained that the aimpoint and the EOTech [550-series] was too big for a sighting system. He opted to use the iron sights. So we did a lot of testing and he finally agreed that the red dot or the EOTech’s circle dot is faster, but it’s too big that it will block his view. So I thought of a smaller sight that is compact and small like the DocterSight. The only problem [with] the DocterSight is it is not robust enough for combat duty. So we created the FAS. I had some Navy SEALs test it in our full-auto course and they all love it. There were civilians that tested the fast and they have nothing negative to say about it. The dot is 3MOA. It uses a lithium battery 3V, CR2032. It similar to the DocterSight. It has a brightness sensor with the Seals using it at noon time with no problems of brightness. All other specifications are the same as the DocterSight.”

The FERFRANS FAS combat optic/sight is ideally-suited to CQB/CQC applications, but it can also be used to engage targets out to medium distances (as far as 200-300 yards) with its 3-MOA dot.

    great idea, always thought the aim point was too restricting of field view in dynamic CQB situations. (essentially almost eliminating an entire eyes field view.)
