Optics are an increasingly vital part of more and more firearms, from traditional rifles to MSRs to shotguns and even ultracompact, concealed-carry handguns. With few exceptions, however, nearly every optic is made overseas, and every manufacturer uses at least one or two components of foreign origin.
Special-purpose rifle scope reticles are not exactly a new invention. For example, the common duplex-reticle-based, mil-dot design has been around since the 1970s. Ballistic Drop Compensating (BDC) configurations are much older than that. However, modern reticles that feature extensive aiming grids and ranging scales are direct descendants of Horus Vision’s hunting-scope reticles.
