Night vision gear is still a lot more expensive than a flashlight, even though prices are falling and the gear is more portable and better-performing than ever before.
The first and foremost reason people use any form of mounted optics is they provide a fast, accurate sight. Second, be they red dot or truly telescopic, sights have shrunk in size, making them better suited for duty.
Duty lights have gone through numerous evolutions over the course of the last decade. We have seen the once standard one-size-fits-all flashlight morph into mission and unit specific lights.
The Arcturus carries on the legacy that Insight Tech-Gear has built over the last few years. I like the light and carry it daily; I can't give it a higher endorsement than that.
In days gone by, “rifle optics” referred to one thing: a telescopic sight with varying degrees of magnification. But today, rifle optics include a new class of aiming devices called combat optics, generally red dot sights.
