And Still Built Like A Tank

That is sufficient to fill a typical daytime eye pupil, making these binoculars better suited to daytime than night-time use. Fast forward to a couple months ago, I got bit by the LVPO bug again. My purpose for switching was that I’m a police officer and this was going on my work rifle which is a 11. 5” SBR.

Not only is this the rifle I bring with me on patrol every shift, but I also serve as a member of my regional swat team. I wanted something that I could use in close for entries but also use on perimeter. The 3X magnifier while helpful just wasn’t cutting it for me.

So I went out and purchased both a lightly used razor 1-6 E and the Kahles K16i with the SM1 reticle. I wanted to compare them both side to side and make my decision that way. The razor is a great optic no doubt. High quality glass, good field of view, certainly more like a red dot if that’s what you’re looking for.

So the Kahles is just in a league of its own optically.

Super bright illumination and a better illumination dial in my opinion. And still built like a tank. Could certainly withstand more abuse. So the Kahles is just in a league of its own optically. Great glass and it super light. It is true what people say the razor is about 90% optically of the Kahles.

But that 10% just makes for such a better image in my opinion. If you watch garand thumbs video he makes a great point about flatness of the image that’s where the Kahles really shines over the vortex. On 1x the Kahles has a huge field of view and a totally flat image.

It’s like looking through a perfectly clear piece of glass. This is normal. You can install a filter in tank which will catch this sludge, allowing you to collect and reuse the detergent solution. Ultrasonic Lubrication ProcessOnce the cleaning is completed, it’s time for step two in the ultrasonic cleaning process – lubrication.

Since the gun has just been deeply and intricately cleaned, the unprotected bore and intricate workings inside the frame need some penetrating lubrication to protect the surface metal from rust. Fortunately, there is an ultrasonic solution to this issue: a lubrication solution. Ultrasonic lubricating solution not only oils all the gun’s parts but the ultrasonic action makes sure the oil evenly and thoroughly coats every surface.

To lubricate the gun, just pour the premixed blend of solvents and water-displacing oil straight into the tank so all parts are covered, and turn on the ultrasonic cleaner for roughly 10 to 15 minutes. Once the gun is lubricated, drain the tank again (saving the lubricating solvent for reuse) and allow the parts to fully air-dry.

When the lubricating solution dries, it’s advisable to add additional lubricating oil on all high-use moving parts to prevent wear or damage. Although some may prefer the time investment and effort involved with cleaning their guns by hand, there is a faster and more effective alternative.

Well, You Should Not Worry Anymore

Some can be used in other applications and work well, but as far as I am aware, none had been specifically designed as a gun lubricant. I thought what we really needed is a true expert in lubrication design to answer some questions. And then I remembered that I knew exactly the guy to ask, my old buddy Joe.

Joe holds a doctorate in analytical chemistry and is retired from a research laboratory where he played a significant role in lubricant testing and evaluation. I took Joe shooting a while ago and asked him a bunch of questions. Here are his suggestions regarding gun lubricants.

1. The most important thing in any lubrication oil is the “base oil”. Joe said information led him to believe that Mobil 1 contained a highly stable synthetic base oil that would not lead to gumming or varnishing due to heat or long term oxidation.

2. He stated that Mobil 1, like any premium engine oil, also contains additives such as detergents and anti-wear components. Some of these may not be necessary for gun lubrication, but probably should not cause any harm. 3. He stated that contrary to what some might expect, the use of a lubricant on an AR-15 is not anywhere as hard on an oil as the use in an internal combustion engine.

But higher viscosity (thicker) oils will work better as they will stay where they are applied. He suggested a 10W-30 or 10W-40 oil as a good range for an AR-15. This would also disqualify lighter oils like transmission fluid, as their viscosity is too low.

4. While Mobil 1 is not “designed” as a lubricant for guns, it should work well in that application. I bought a quart of Mobile 1 Synthetic oil for about $9. I found a small container to use to apply it to the guns. That ought to last me for the rest of my life.

There you go. Lubrication advice from someone that is a true expert on the subject. During this year’s INTERMAT, Wacker Neuson exhibited two electric wheel loaders, the Kramer 5055e and the Wacker Neuson WL20e. Both machines are part of the company’s range of emissions-free equipment and are capable of working up to 8 hours on a single charge, depending on the application.

Very durable Works in inclement weather Comes with a simplistic reticle Lenses are multicoated for light transmission and durability Has precision windage and elevation turrets Precision glide erector system ensures smooth magnification switchingEye relief can be a bit short for someAll in all, this optic is incredibly affordable, yet also one of the most versatile hunting rifle scopes you can find.

It’s far from a long-range precision instrument, but it does a fantastic job of facilitating close-range accuracy. We also like that it’ll continue to work even in inclement weather: a serious consideration that hunters often need to keep in mind. Concluding our Rimfire Scopes GuideIn today’s age of ever-advancing science and modern technology, we know how difficult it can get for any budding rifle enthusiast to choose a .

Basically, you need to forgo the image quality if your binoculars have a higher power.

Usually, the 1025 binoculars have smaller lighting setups that allow an average identical aperture than its opponent. Also, the 1042 binoculars have a good dim setup with quality glass and layout. Dissimilarity On Image StabilityThe image stability of both binoculars is excellent in their own ways. Basically, you need to forgo the image quality if your binoculars have a higher power. Yet, both 1042 and 1025 both have similar image quality with fine zooming benefits.

You can’t communicate with anything else but if you just need to chat with friends or family it might be a simple way to go. READ MOREFor more of our top hiking & backpacking gear recommendations, check out these popular articles:ElectronicsAbout The AuthorHiker. Trail runner. Mountain biker.
