Griffin Armament is a well-known brand within the suppressor market for building well-designed, robust, and reliable suppressors. The suppressor manufacturer also dabbles in making components for the AR-15 platform, such as upper and lower receivers and hand guards. Now, Griffin Armament has jumped into the ever-growing and diverse optics market with the release of the Ideal Carbine Optic and the Griffin Micro Sight. Let’s take a closer look at what these two optics offer.
Below are the product descriptions for the Ideal Carbine Optic and Griffin Micro Sight.
Ideal Carbine Optic
The Griffin 1-8x ICO™ FFP LPVO is a quality LPVO at a budget price. The 1-8x magnification range makes transitioning from close to medium-long range a breeze. The minimal-parallax, clear sight picture of the Griffin LPVO combined with 11 brightness settings makes target acquisition fast and natural in a variety of lighting conditions from bright sunny days, to dark cloudy nights. The fully-housed aluminum sight body provides a robust frame to protect the optic from drops, dings, and bumps. Hardcoated with black Type 3 Anodized finish resists scuffs and abrasions to keep your sight looking its best amidst the toughest conditions. The Griffin LPVO is ready for use right out of the box and includes flip-up scope caps, Griffin microfiber cloth, and a CR2032 battery.
The Ideal Carbine Optic™ (ICO™) reticle is a custom designed, glass-etched, MIL/BDC reticle with ranging features and windage holds for standard sized targets. First Focal Plane allows ranging of targets at any magnification level. The reticle allows for rapid targeting under a variety of ranges and conditions with several common cartridges.
Griffin Micro Sight
The Griffin Micro Sight™ (GMS) Red Dot is a quality, capable red dot suitable for use on pistols, carbines, PCC’s, or as a magnified optics backup where quick target acquisition is a must. Available in red or green dot, the GMS makes a great primary or backup optic for any application. Shake-to-wake functionality means that your red dot will always be operational when you need it, and the auto-off feature extends battery life in case you forget to turn off your sight. The minimal parallax, clear sight picture of the GMS™ combined with 10 brightness settings makes target acquisition fast and natural in a variety of lighting conditions from bright sunny days, to dark cloudy nights. The fully-housed aluminum sight body provides a robust frame to protect the optic from drops, dings, and bumps. The black hardcoat Type 3 Anodized finish resists scuffs and abrasions to keep your sight looking its best amidst the toughest conditions. The Griffin Micro Sight™ is ready for use right out of the box and includes an Acro® footprint absolute co-witness 1.05H clamp-style riser, allen wrenches, Griffin microfiber cloth, and CR2032 battery.
