Experience 700g's With Me!
June 30, 2011
Ever wonder how a scope manufacturer puts their optics to the test to see how they will stand up to recoil? It's pretty simple. Here is the test fixture at Premier Reticles in Winchester, VA. I know it doesn't look like much, but that's 700 g's you're seeing there. It simulates more recoil than you or I could ever manage, and as many times as the manufacturer wants. This is the exact scope the U.S. Marine snipers use. They're rated for 10,000 cycles. That's a lot of shooting!
