Elcan M145

Recommended Posts

Sooo......I've just 'acquired' one of these scopes. It's the 3.6 with the M240 reticle.

Can anyone give me any info how well these work, basically, with a standard 55 or 62gn .223/5.56 round?

I meant on a standard AR upper, but if you're buying...... 😂

In Kandahar in 2002, a Canadian infantry battalion was attached to the US brigade I was in.  My platoon got to spend a lot of time working with them (one of the cooler experiences during my time in).  They had some version of that Elcan on their M16 and M4 rifles.  Damn thing made the rifle as awkward as toting a curling bar, but from what I heard, those guys were happy to have it when they were sent north and east up in the mountains. 

All that to say, maybe there is some Canadian marksmanship manual for them hiding on the internet somewhere...here's a start.  It's the rifle manual, but has a section on the sight.
