Athlon Ares ETR 4.5-30×56: Raw Truth Review

Today we’re taking a look at another precision rifle optic, the Athlon Ares ETR 4.5-30×56.

LaRue Tactical MBT: The Meticulously Built Trigger Review

Trijicon LED TA-110 ACOG: Raw Truth Reviews

For whatever reason, I don’t think the Trijicon battery-powered LED ACOGs have gained as much traction as they deserve. The classic combat optic paired with an efficient LED emitter is a great combination, and I want to take a deeper look at it. In particular, I’m going to review my TA-110 ACOG with the horseshoe-dot reticle and green LED illumination.
