The new ICS Intelligent Combat Sight integrates a laser rangefinder and a ballistic calculator into a rugged, compact tactical weapons sight for increased accuracy, greater first-round hit probability, and shorter time of engagement.

At the push of a button, an eye-safe laser instantly provides distance to the target, and calculates an illuminated, trajectory-compensated aiming point based on ammunition ballistics, measured distance, and angle to your target out to 800 meters. As a true electro-optical aiming device, it combines combat-optimized technology, operating simplicity in the field, and the targeting effectiveness to give small-caliber weapons oversized clout.

Intelligent Combat Sight (ICS) 6x40 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wait a couple of years and it will have more choice for 5.56 77 grain cartridges. Not much available on options for tis items. Very expensive over 3k It looks durable but never dropped nor do I intend to intentionally. Not that heavy. Just wished I waited a while longer.

What are the thread specifications of the objective and are there threads on the rear of the scope? If so what would they be? Trying to fit flip covers and ARD. Thank-you

Asked by: Techcor
Hello, The threads in the front of the ICS will not accept any accessories. They are part of the actual assembly process of the optic. Additionally, an ARD would not allow proper use of the range finder.
