Maximum Warrior Week 7 – Night Vision Armasight Challenge!

Mar 8, 2013 • News4 Comments

Week 7 of the Maximum Warrior Challenge was crazy.  Most of the challenges push the physical limitations of the warriors, but this week was more about speed and sniper skill.  The participants were given a FNH SCAR-Heavy with an Armasight CO-LR Night Vision Unit.  They’re placed at the top of a lookout tower and there are targets all around them.  They had to complete 360 of finding and hitting targets.  Pretty cool stuff.

To make the contest even cooler the winner got to take home a CO-LR by Armasight.  This is a very cool scope and gives a ton of awesome performance.  First, it’s a co-witness NV unit, so you actually clip it on in front of your regular daytime rifle scope to give a lot of versatility.  This is especially important for soldiers like the guys competing, as they’re often engaged in missions that take place over several hours, from daylight to nighttime.  While they can certainly bring along two separate scopes, they can’t really sight in a different scope when swapping.  A co-witness scope doesn’t require sighting in, as your rifle scope should already be right on target.  Simply clip the Armasight CO-LR on and you’re good to go!

It seems the toughest part of the challenge was finding the targets.  I’ve been watching the entire challenge and the Navy Seal has been kicking a lot of butt throughout, but though he’s a talented sniper, he struggled to find the targets in order to take a shot.  The winner was an Army Scout Sniper, and he seemed to have a really good handle on how to find the targets quickly and easily.  Very cool to see.

    I WOULD PURCHASE THIS IF IT ALSO HAD A RAIL SYSTEM SO i COULD ADD OTHER LIGHTS, OR A LASER TARGETING LIGHT.

    Ok what is new Surefire has been making replacement forearms with lights for year for both Remington and Mossberg, problem is the cost low in being 300.00. You can get a replacement forearm with a rail and attach a 1 inch mount with a tac light a do the same thing. I set up 3 shotguns for what one would cost if I did a surefire replacement forearm.

  3. Brian says:

    That’s a great idea, and one we hope SureFire looks into as well! I will say this particular light is so ergonomic that an additional rail might make it too bulky, but there does seem to be room on the end for a rail. Maybe next years model will have further customization options.

  4. Brian says:

    This particular model and the intuitive and ergonomic design is what’s really new with the SureFire Mossberg Forend light. You certainly can buy a regular replacement forearm with a rail, but the great design on this light makes it much easier to turn on without changing your grip.
