When the Shaolin Rifleworks guys informed me that the scope I had been using on their AR-10 has an MSRP of just $449, I was pretty darn surprised. The optics of the LUCID L5 6-24×50 were really good, and my initial impression was that I was behind some premium glass that’s beyond what I would personally spend. Shaolin said they were sharing the LUCID booth at SHOT Show and asked me to swing by, so swing by I did. As you’ll see in the video above, the owner of LUCID walked me through their new product for 2015, the P7 4x Weapons Optic. . .
The P7 is a fixed 4x zoom red dot-style optic. It is built on an aluminum frame coated or wrapped with a rubber housing. A standard AA battery provides 2,500 hours of illumination time. The P7 reticle allows for MOA ranging, and the reticle is available in the STRELOK app.
I was impressed enough with the L5 6-24×50 that I took one home with me. A full review will likely come in a couple of months.
