Command Arms AQC-1C Red Dot Optic review

The CAA AQC-1C is a very good, well built optic. Command Arms sent us this to T&E and initially I was more thrown back by the price tag on this optic. $899 seems like a lot in the modern world of even high end military grade optics. Setting that aside though we mounted it on my AR-15 and went to the range to do some drills with it and get a feel for it.

AQC-1C Review

It is a really well designed optic. The sighting in was very easy to do. The controls are large enough to use even with gloves on and in a easy to get to place without being in the way. The glass was clear and was bright enough to see in the day. The reticules got a little fuzzy at they’re brightest settings but not so much it was indistinguishable or distracting in any way. Once it was sighted in it stayed zeroed and was right on target. The center dot, which is visible in all three separate reticules, is 1.7 MOA. Which is very nice to take a distance shot and not cover a majority of the target. My only regret was I wanted to do a little durability testing but was told I couldn’t. So I have no reports on how well it will take a far drop or a 50 yd throw onto gravel. (Yes I was going to throw it as far as I could down my friends gravel driveway)

I would recommend this product to anyone interested in a higher end red dot sight, just watch out for that price tag.
