The Armson Aiming Concept instantly merges the dot and target allowing two eye sighting with no loss of peripheral vision! Anodized aluminum body, high quality internal optics, and simple adjustments for windage/elevation. A fiber optic light source provides illumination during the day and the optional Tritium upgrade self-powers the sight in low light conditions (must be added as an option below). No batteries required.
Using the 1″ ring allows mounting to any Weaver or Picatinny style base.
A piece of South African history the Armson OEG has seen service with the SADF & SANDF (SA Military) from the 1980s until today……
“Trijicon was founded in 1981 by Glyn Bindon as Armson USA, the sole US importer and distributor of the Armson OEG. The Armson OEG was an occluded-type gunsight that used tritium and fiber optics in its construction and was manufactured in South Africa. It was created in 1981 and reached shops in 1983. The gunsight became popular due to its variety of mounting systems for popular rifles and shotguns.
In 1985 Bindon reorganized the company as Trijicon and began manufacture of night sights for pistols. Trijicon introduced a tritium-illuminated telescopic sight for the US Military called the TA01 4×32 Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight (ACOG) in 1987″. (found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trijicon)
