Greetings. Thank you for opening this thread. This is what I would need help with: I am planning on buying a new airsoft gun this year, and I've been eyeing AUG A3 for a longer time now. One of my desired upgrades has always been, alongside other stuff, having an PEQ on my weapon, and that is fully compatible when applied to my other buying alternatives (those are either HK-416 or AK-74 with heavily upgraded design, I have these alternatives in case the main weapon I want goes out of stock). But I am not so sure when it comes to having a PEQ on AUG, since I have not seen anyone using it in that configuration before. I made the representation of what I would want my upper rail setup to look like, as you can see below, in the attached image. I would like to ask you for your opinions and, if you have any, experiences with using using PEQs on AUGs. I would also appreciate your thoughts on the setup I have proposed below. Please, feel free to criticize and correct me, or my question. I highly value all of your input. Have a nice day.
Just saw today on Airsoft Globals Facebook feed that they now have Trijicon SRO (Specialized Reflex Optic) replica sights available. Unfortunately as I am composing this post their website is down but here is the link. Not seen them on any other airsoft sites yet. https://www.airsoftglobal.com/shop/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_in_description=1&keyword=AGK-DS-178&x=0&y=0 Think it was around $50-60 USD, black and tan available. Supposedly this is kind of the "successor" to the Trijicon RMR sight that we all know and love, with the advantage of bigger and more open sight picture and field-of-view etc. And is RMR size/spec/plate compatible. Trijicon SRO official site: https://www.trijicon.com/products/subcategory/trijicon-sro It's interesting and cool but I think it looks worse than the RMR, just aesthetically speaking, both as a stand-alone sight and mounted on a pistol. Oh yeah, reminds me of those old-school IPSC red-dot sights, which I think are fugly, but I can see the resemblance for their design inspiration I guess. Still want to get one and probably will as soon as Airsoft Global are online again BTW they are advertised as the "brand" AG-K which I think is something like, Airsoft Global "Kustom" (custom with a K, might just be in my brain that makes sense). Most likely like all other of these replica sights they are just ACM made and rebranded and marked and will pop up under various names. From the pictures it also looked like these have full markings, which I always appreciate Facebook post (OK, not allowed to share/embed, screenshot attached...)
Using green / red fiber, operating completely battery-free in bright conditions. Daytime is working without interruption. * Magnification : 4x * Objective diameter : 32mm * Eye Relief : 1.5” * Field of View : 36.8ft at 100yds * Rail : 21.2mm * Fiber Optic Illumination : Green / Red
I received my Trijicon SRS replica today. I am in the process of doing a review, but thought I'd post a few photos for you: The box is pretty incredible considering this is a clone/replica: Right side. Could do without the "Property of Trijicon", but buttons feel good. Included QD mount, battery and killflash. Left side. Only difference b/t this and the real steel is the white stamp vs. raised rubber lettering. Shockingly enough, the solar array works. It will power the sight with no battery. Further tests are coming to see if it will adjust for brightness and motion. Front lens is a beautiful orange/red color. The LED looks big in the photo. I think the camera did that, because in person it's very crisp and clear with no "sunburst" effect. There does appear to be some parallax when moving up/down, there is no parallax moving left/right. There is no magnification or distortion at all. There is a slight bluish green tint looking through the sight. It's kind of like looking through a pair of UV sunglasses. So far so good. Looks great and feels great. I only hope it performs well and holds zero or even can be zeroed. Subscribe to this thread to see my full review. I have three sights I'm working with right now and will be mounting them all to the same rifle to test. Let me know if you have any questions or want me to test something particular.
