Submission for Enhanced Combat Optical Sight – Optimized Trials
Leupold® is pleased to introduce the next generation in long-range and close-quarter hybrid battlefield optics with the Dual Aperture Gunsight Riflescope (DAGR™), the next generation of integrated optical aiming system for modern small arms.
Leupold’s DAGR System integrates the cutting-edge Leupold Mark 6™ 3-18x44mm riflescope with the CQB-proven Aimpoint® Micro T-1. American warfighters can go from 1x to 18x in a fraction of a second with this system. With an overall length of less than 12 inches and weighing just 34.2 ounces, the Leupold ECOS-O solution delivers an incredible field of view and rapid target acquisition at an unmatched length and weight.
“Combat troops have traditionally had to choose long-range accuracy or close-quarter speed when selecting optics,” said Chris Estadt, director of military business development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “Leupold’s DAGR System has responded with a shorter, lighter, and faster optical system with unprecedented magnification range in a compact size.”
In order to increase the combat effectiveness, Leupold engineering redesigned the elevation turret to reduce the centerline distance between the two optics to 1¾ of an inch. This greatly increases the speed of target acquisition for CQB engagements. The DAGR System was recently submitted as the solution for the Miniature Day/Night Sight Enhanced Combat Optical Sight – Optimized (MDNS ECOS-O) government request for proposal. This system will be available for consumers in 2013.
Built in Leupold’s Beaverton, Ore, facility, the ECOS-O is the latest in the company’s proud military history. Currently, more long-range Leupold tactical optics are in service with the U.S. military than any other brand. Aimpoint® has been delivering red dot sights to the U.S. Army since 1997.
The foundation of the DAGR is the Mark 6 3-18x44mm, which offers a specialized short zero lock 0.1 mil adjustment dial with pop up revolution indicator and an easy-to-adjust ocular housing power magnification adjustment. The system includes a Berry Compliant carrying case, Leupold’s Mark 6® Integrated Mounting System and Sight mount.
