    nope. check the FAR under latent defects
    the inspectors have only to present that they were not aware that was religious inscription, thinking it was instead production nomenclature

    I like it. As soon as my loan officer OKs it I'm going to order one with MAT5:44

    It's probably reasonable defense too. Unless cross referencing serial numbers or what have you is standard procedure. In the end, it doesn't affect the scope so it's not bad in that aspect. I just don't think we should be mixing religion and our weapons meant to kill others. Also, if I were still Christian, I'd be rather upset at the misuse of my god.

    I would think that you would know that that is not a rifle.

    i did a stint as my companys' armory custodian; i've probably handled at least a thousand RCO's and ACOG's. I never noticed this at all; I'll have to look next time.

    If so, then I like this. A nice touch on the part of Trijicon.


    but for MOUT i'd still rather have an EOTECH

    Ya know, I've been involved in long range, precision shooting for about 3 years now and have owned everything from a Leupold Mk 4 to a Night Force 8-25x50 and I still shoot better with open sights out to 500 yards.

    The scopes work exactly as they are supposed to - and thus, they are not defective.

    Do you have a preference for accessories which make the sight stand out, such as Trijicon Bright & Tough GL04 Night Sights for Glock 20, 21, 21SF, 29, 30, 31, 32 & 37

    People generally do not realize how precise and accurate iron sights can be out to 500, 600, even 1000 yards -- even with service-class rifles. Man0sized targets at those ranges are of little issue under competition conditions.

    I have a Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24x mil-dot on top of my M700, and I can put 19 out of 20 into a pie plate at 1000yds. I cannot do it with open sights because of my eyes, but I do know people that can.

    ...as if someone would actually choose or alter their religious preference based on the serial number on a gunsight... who cares?

    In all practicality, It helped me memorize the serial number on mine when it was issued to me.

    The only upside to this-- if they are decommissioned and taxpayer dollars are spent to get sights without the biblical references, I can get one of the decommissioned pieces for cheap as military surplus.
