Aimpoint 6x Project

After taking a LE carbine course, I determined the need for some magnification on my truck gun. A BCM Keymod upper.  Additionally the GEMTECH Integra needs a matching configuration for easy swap.

One of the issues many people have with the modern gold-standard of red-dot sights (AimPoint IMO) is the price. The latest iterations of the Micro can be well north of $500! But just like how Surefire used to be the only game in town concerning weapon lights, Bushnell has stepped up with a red-dot line called the TRS. It’s basically …
