FTP Optics Alpha 3 Red Dot Sight

Recommended Posts

FTP Optics Alpha 3 Red Dot Reflex Sight

The FTP Optics Alpha 3 Red Dot Reflex Sight is a competition grade optic built to exacting standards with one of the largest viewing windows on the market. Constructed of high grade aluminum, the optic weighs a scant 41.5 g including the battery. It is waterproof to 2 m and shockproof to 1000 G!

FTP Optics are made by the leading manufacturer in the industry that also produce most of the name brand optics you are familiar with. There is no loss of quality, precision, product testing or durability. You can be assured of fantastic performance without inflated prices.

 

Featuring a 10 position manually operated soft touch brightness switches, you can set the dot intensity to match your shooting environment. The optic remembers the last brightness intensity and will turn back on at the same level. The FTP Optics Alpha uses a standard and easy to find CR2032 battery which can be changed without dismounting the optic or re-zeroing.

 

The latest industry electronics feature the ON start circuitry board which assures the sight will not turn off while shooting. A low battery indicator is also programmed on to the circuitry board to notify the user when the battery is low.

 

Lens

The lens features a optically clearer G-Coat that improves clarity and light transmission while offering superior anti-reflective capaiblities. The lens will appear more clear with less of a blue tone than many of our competitors. The lens is parallax free at 70m. The lens itself is one of the largest in the micro red dot industry which is a huge benefit to competition shooters.

 

Motion Technology

An exciting feature of the FTP Optics Alpha 3 is the incorporation of a motion sensor that will turn off the optic after 3 minutes if no motion is detected. The same sensor will turn the optic back on as soon as motion is detected at the last brightness level. This is a great feature to help extend battery life!

 

Elevation & Windage Adjustments

Elevation and windage adjusments are made easily with a click adjustment system that requires no locking screw. The FTP Optics 3 features a wider adjustment range than many micro red dots to allow you to install on a wider variety of firearms.

 

Dot Size

Dot size is extremely important to competitors for fast target aquisition and visibility in sun light. The FTP Optics Alpha 3 is available with big and bright 6 and 8 MOA dot sizes!

 

Many other micro red dots on the market are suited to more tactical operations and feature dots that are too small to be optimal for competition shooting. The advantage goes to FTP!

 

Mounting:

The FTP Alpha Optic 3 will install on standard mounts used for the RTS2TM and Romeo 3 TM. Due to the slightly longer length, you may need to use a mount that does not incorporate a blast shield or modify the mount itself for clearance

 

The optic includes a removable Picatinny rail mount or can be used in direct mounting application popular on most competition firearms.

Specifications:

Dimensions: (LxWxH): 56.5 x 29 x 32.5 mm

Sight Window: 26 x 21.5mm

Elevation Adjustment Range: 145 MOA @ 100m

Windage Adjustment Range : 95 MOA @ 100m

Glass: Anti-reflective, G-Coat multi-layered coated glass lens is parallax free with 97 % light transmission

Weight: 41.5 g

Battery Life: 320 hours at brightness position 3 at 10 degrees C

These look extremely similar to the Cmore Rts2. What, besides the lens profile, makes them different? I have a very strong feeling these are made in the same factory as the Rts2 and Romeo 3.

The Alpha main differences would be as follows:

 

1. Larger window

2. Better coating on the glass to superior light transmission (brighter and less reflections)

3. Motion sensors to turn the dot off when not in use and back on when the gun is moved

4. Soft touch buttons for controls

5. Slightly longer profile

6. No need for locking screws on elevation and windage screws which are often a failure point

 

There are only a few places that make just about all the optics on the market. The differences are what specifications are requested which can dramatically affect the price. For example, a premium lens coating can easily add 35.00 to the price over a base coating.
