BLACKHAWK! Riflescopes

Along with getting into the AR furniture game, BLACKHAWK! is now adding rifle optics to their firearm accessory line.  The new BLACKHAWK! tactical riflescopes sport a lot of the features tactical shooters are looking for in an optic these days such as a  front focal plane reticule  and a side paralax adjustment.  Along with some of those must haves on a scope, the BLACKHAWK! rifle scopes have exposed turrets for quick adjustments and a “return-to-zero” capability, which I would assume to be some sort of zero-stop.  The exterior multi-coated lenses have an “extra hard coating”  to protect against scratches and the scopes themselves are waterproof, shockproof, and fogproof.

The new BLACKHAWK! riflescopes come in an assortment of configurations.

The 1″ tube scopes:

Power Objective Diameter Length (in) Weight (oz) Eye Relief (in) Finish Reticule FOV @ 100 Yards Price
1.5 – 5 32 10.5 12.8 3.6 Matte Mildot 68.4-21.2 $399.99
3.5-10 50 12.9 17.2 3.5 Matte Mildot 29.6-10.5 $499.99
3-9 40 12.1 13.9 3.5 Matte Mildot 34 – 11.6 $449.99

The 30mm tube scopes:

Power Objective Diameter Length (in) Weight (oz) Eye Relief (in) Finish Reticule FOV @ 100 Yards Price
3-15 50 13.5 27.3 4 Matte Mildot 33.9-6.8 $799.99
4-20 50 14.9 27.5 3.5 Matte Mildot 26-1.5 $899.99

The BLACKHAWK! riflescopes seem to share the same features and price range as the Burris XTRs and Vortex Viper PSTs.  I’ve had some experience with both these lines of scopes and I would be interested in seeing if the new BLACKHAWK! scopes measure up.  The only thing that would concern me somewhat is that unlike the Burris XTRs and Vortex scopes, the BLACKHAWK! scopes are not made in the USA, they are “imported;” from where, I don’t know.

The new BLACKHAWK! riflescopes are available for purchase now exclusively at Cabelas.

Advanced Armament’s Ruger 10/22 Video

The AAC’s new Ruger 10/22 seems like its going to be a huge winner when its finally available later this year.  Mike over at Advanced Armament shows off AAC’s  new cross company project in the video below which made me that much more impatient for these hushed plinkers to come out.

The new AAC 10/22s are not only integrally suppressed, but a ported barrel underneath the shroud which reduces bullet velocity essentially turning any .22 LR ammo you put through it, into subsonic ammunition.

New PWS Triad Flash Suppressor

Primary Weapon Systems (PWS) have a new flash suppressor/comp brake coming out for 5.56 and .30 cal weapons.  PWS claims that their new Triad Flash Suppressor combines the best of both words of flash suppressor and muzzle rise compensation.  The new Triad has a “unique internal design” that is so effective that Primary Weapon Systems is backing it with a money back guarantee that you’ll be satisfied with their new flash suppressor.  Judging the effectiveness of the Triad from the video below, and from the PWS muzzle brake that was featured on the SCAR 17s, I doubt anyone will be returning it.  The PWS 5.56 Triad costs 60 bucks while the .30 cal Triad is 70.
