Ade Advanced Optics Huracan Features

Optical performance

The Huracan optical sight from advanced optics has been configured to hold zero, and the rugged construction makes it durable thus better able to withstand recoil. Back to the lenses and we must say that they are precision ground and polished to the precise geometrics thus eliminate parallax while providing a high-resolution clear picture.

Illumination and NVD

The brightness levels offered by the Huracan might suffice a category of users, but truth be told the levels are a bit limited when compared to other reflex sights of the same standard. You will, therefore, get up to 5 brightness settings, some of which will come effective in low light situations but cannot suffice when used with the night vision devices.

Design and Build

The overall build is quite robust and designed to protect the lens from external impact; if you take a closer look at the lens you will notice that it is laid back thus allows the hood on top to protect it from the suns glare, among other environmental elements that might negatively impact the sight.

What’s more, is that the sight comes complete with a protective hood allowing you to protect your sight during transportation and storage.

Waterproofing and submersion

Well, these important qualities are obviously missing from this optical sight, meaning that users will have to be especially careful when using the unit outdoors because there isn’t any reliable information indicating whether the sight is waterproof or water-resistant, but from the build, we can tell that it will repel dirt.

If we, however, go back to the manufacturer’s statement regarding their optical sights, they categorically stated their units are nitrogen purged meaning that they can be used under light showers, but don’t think of submerging it underwater.
