The TD3 is an open red dot designed for fast acquisition and a large window size (28x19mm!), while mounting with as low a profile as possible. Commonly, this red dot will be mounted on a pistol slide that is cut to fit an RMR-profile optic. Find out more about the TD3 here!
You might imagine that finding a range in the city is hard enough. That’s certainly true. Even out past the edge of the city, most ranges taper off around 600 or 650 yards. Chris had been getting too comfortable with those distances, so we needed to find a stretch of land to give him a bit of a challenge. Fortunately, Southern California has a pretty good patch of desert that calls it home.
When we set up an A.R.T. Scope at the range, we tend to follow the same pattern each time. First the mounting, which has its own steps, setting the CAM, then the close zero and actual zero, the confirmation and adjustment, and finally tuning the CAM and taking the scope out to distance. If you're unfamiliar with the ART scope line, this may seem like an odd series of steps. We thought it might be helpful to film our full setup while talking through what to look for (see the video embedded above), and take the room here to flesh out a few more details.
