Steiner's new "Intelligent" Combat Sight (ICS) integrates a laser rangefinder and a ballistic calculator into a rugged and compact tactical weapons sight. The ICS, a true electro-optical aiming device, provides trajectory compensation by automatically calculating the point of aim based on ammunition ballistics, measured distance and angle to the target out to 800 meters.

"The precision of the 6x40mm ICS greatly increases accuracy and first round hit probability for improved battlefield effectiveness for infantry soldiers and tactical operators using small caliber weapons," says Tom Frane, VP of Sales, Marketing and Business Development. "Just feed the ICS your cartridge's ballistic info and the scope's computer and inclinometer instantly calculate perfect hold-over at your exact distance and gives you a bright red dot in seconds – all at the push of a button."

Despite its sophisticated technology, the ICS is a ruggedized, simple to operate combat optic that requires minimal training. While the magnification is optimized for the 7.62 NATO battle rifle, the ICS's internal ballistic calculator is easily configurable for specific 5.56 NATO, .300 AAC Blackout and .300 Win. Mag cartridges.

The 6x40mm ICS is fully adjustable for windage and 120 MOA of elevation, and the illuminated reticle adjusts from dim to bright for daylight conditions. A Picatinny base on top of the ICS allows for the addition of a CQB sight, and a back-up iron sight on the right side provides an auxiliary sighting option. The sight is powered by one CR123A battery and the Class I Eye Safe laser and is waterproof up to 1 ATM - 10 meters.

Review: Smith & Wesson Shield Plus

In retrospect, Smith & Wesson had nobody to blame for the situation but themselves. The company didn’t invent the subcompact, lightweight, single-stack nine, of course. Walther and Beretta had preceded the original Shield to market by a few years with the PPS and the Nano, respectively, and Kahr had more or less created the niche back in the 1990s.
