Check the light transmission

One of the most important things to be kept in mind at the time of purchasing scope rings or scope mounts is to check the transmission of light from it. Many people mistakenly believe that rifle scopes actually gather light, but this is a common misconception which should be avoided by them. The AR 15 mounts simply transmit the light that is available in the environment with the help of actual lenses that are a part of the scope one purchases. Unhappily, light that is transmitted is often lost to one degree or another. So it is important to check the transmission ability of the light for purchasing the effective scope mounts.

See the magnification of the mounts being purchased

At the time of selecting scope rings, it is important to consider the magnification associated with that particular product. In order to get the best and most effective magnification of the lens it is important to check it before hand in order to get the most effective results. There are many different factors that should be considered when determining the magnification associated with the scope rings that one selects. Firstly, one should consider the type of terrain in use of the AR 15 mounts. After this the magnification power of the entire lens is important to be checked so that one can purchase the most effective mount. This would also help in checking of the shooting range of the mount which would help in increasing the working power of AR. Accurate magnification of the mount is very important to be checked in order to get the most effective results out of it. There are different kinds of mounts available in the market but it is essential to purchase the most effective one.

Shopping for a Polymer 9mm: We Test CZ, Sphinx, & Walther
We recently had the good fortune to have three interesting 9mm polymer-frame handguns come our way. Two of them are new to these pages, the Walther PPX M1 No. 2790025, $450; and the Kriss Sphinx SDP Compact, $1295. This marks the first time we’ve ever tested a Sphinx of any sort, and the PPX is a new model. They were joined in this shootfest by a handgun we’ve tested two times previously, the CZ USA CZ 75 P-07 Duty, $528, but in a new variation, the No. 91178, which has tall sights and a threaded barrel to accommodate a suppressor. Those seemingly minor changes to what has been a Grade B gun improved it in our eyes, even if we weren’t going to fit it with a can.
