Default Change in optics power limit for service rifle?

Does this mean we will now be able to go up to 6x magnification on service rifle scopes?

Almost certainly the rule will change eventually. But it hasn't yet.

Since no one is really using GI optics, I don't see why there would be a change.

USAMU. They'll want their team using the new Army optic. Or at least one with similar/relevant capabilities. And once they say the want it, CMP will bump the limit up.

The article stated that the new Direct View Optic (DVO) will be the same Tango6 scope used as the current USSOCOM Squad-Variable Powered Scope (S-VPS). That is not a scope well adapted for precision shooting since it uses a Bullet Drop Compensation (BDC) reticle and lacks target elevation and windage turrets. I guess they might be able to configure a scope that sort of looks like the military scope but it likely will not be the same.

If they change the rule somebody is going to profit... and I don't think it will be the shooters.

Rickgman's point is the AMU NEVER used a true Issued Optic for Service Rifle matches like Camp Perry.
As soon as Optics were allowed for the SR, they went with civilian scopes.............
(Nor for that matter did any Civilians either).........

Oh I know. I also know that if US Army soldiers are being issued 6x scopes the AMU will want 6x scopes on their rifles.

And frankly, why not? If we're pretending these are still service rifles, and the Army is using 6x scopes, why not?
