At the end of the day, the M14 and M1A are remarkably similar. Even the names are written with characters of nearly the same shape!
The M1 Garand's legacy as America's iconic battle rifle remains unmatched. Its revolutionary semi-automatic design and exceptional performance set new standards for firearms technology and forever changed the way wars were fought.
The latest edition of the 6X Short Malcolm scope is a studious, well-mannered look back at the era of rifle telescopes, around the years 1865-1880. Built around an old design and using the latest materials, this scope is built to help you reach out and touch something.
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!
A few scopes are built to sit much farther away. They have a much longer eye relief than is standard. For this very simple reason, they're called long eye relief scopes. Sometimes, you'll see that written as LER.
The barrel is the place where the bullet builds up speed, starts to spin, and gets going on the right path. Once the primer is struck, the powder burns and heats, the reaction speeding up as more powder heats up yet more powder and sets it off too. This expanding mass of hot air and burning propellant shoves the bullet down the barrel, burning more as it goes.
Rene Macare was in the 173d Airborne and was one of the first Army soldiers to attend sniper school in Vietnam. Rene went on to use the ARTel scope during the Vietnam War. He's sitting with us to share his experiences in the war and, just as importantly, what it was like coming home.

We're joined today by Chris Wu and Corbett Leatherwood, talking over the beginning of the A.R.T. line and the early years of a young Jim Leatherwood.

(If you're a veteran that's used an A.R.T. Scope during your career and are interested in sharing your story, please reach out to us!)

The A.R.T. Scope, once introduced, sped up the training cycle by eliminating the need to deal with some of the tricky fundamental aspects of distance shooting.
For over 50 years, we’ve focused on one thing - hitting stuff really far away. Since the inception of the Leatherwood CAMputer, we’ve done more than just expand its capabilities. We’ve brought Jim’s vision to bear on a wide lineup of optics.
