    Major upgrade for the beloved Ma Deuce, one of the Armys oldest weapons

    Major upgrade for the beloved Ma Deuce, one of the Armys oldest weapons

    Good news for an old weapon, the M2.

    Trijicon, the maker of the popular ACOG scope commonly used by the U.S. military, now has a reflex sight for the M2 .50 caliber machine gun, known as the Ma Deuce, and M240 medium machine gun, according to Johnny Moir, a program manager for the company.

    The new sight, Machine Gun Reflex Sight, or MGRS, comes with two ballistic cams, which allows an operator to easily switch between the M2 and M240, according to Moir. The user will simply have to re-zero the weapon after switching between the .50 and M240.




    The new reflex sight fills a huge capability cap, Moir said. Theres no prescribed optic for mounted gunnery.

    That's pretty cool, the Browning M2 in service from 1933 and still one of the best.
    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.
