Welcome back Peanuts Peeps. Today we have something for the eye. The Rapidstrike 1-4x24 from Firefield.

Firefield is a US brand associated with the well known optics manufacturer Sightmark. The company produces affordable and functional optics. Despite the classification in the entry-level range, the Rapidstrike 1-4x24 brings all the features.


1-4x magnification

Red or green illuminated reticle

5 brightness settings

5 MOA point

Dual optics setup for use in the close to medium range

Up to 200 hours of battery life

Protection class IP67 - waterproof and dustproof

Matt black finish

Includes Firefield Impact Mini Reflex Sight

Including cantilever mount

Unpack and get started. The optics can be mounted immediately. It comes with a monolithic aluminum "cantilever" Picatinny mount. Since the optics are pre-assembled, the rings should still be readjusted.

The Firefield Rapidstrike 1-4x24 aluminum mount is cantilevered and has risers in the rail to allow for a better connection with the weapon's Picatinny rail. The bracket is attached with 4 torx screws. The optics on my Bolt M4 were very tight and did not wobble.

If you are looking for a new look for your gun, Firefield is the right address for you. For a price under 250 euros you get a very good quality. Of course, there are also many other optics. As always, you can find the link below.

Willkommen zurück Peanuts Peeps. Heute gibt es mal wieder etwas für's Auge. Das Rapidstrike 1-4x24 aus dem Hause Firefield.

Firefield ist eine US-amerikanische Marke die mit dem bekannten Optikhersteller Sightmark verbunden ist. Die Firma stellt günstige und funktionelle Optiken her. Trotz der Einordnung in den Einsteigerbereich bringt das Rapidstrike 1-4x24 alle Features mit.

Auspacken und loslegen. Die Optik kann sofort montiert werden. Es wird mit einer monolithischen Aluminium- "Cantilever"- Picatinny- Halterung geliefert. Da die Optik vormontiert ist sollten trotzdem die Ringe nachjustiert werden.
Die Aluminiummontage des Firefield Rapidstrike 1-4x24 ist freitragend und hat Riser in der Schiene, um eine bessere Verbindung mit der Picatinny-Schiene der Waffe zu ermöglichen. Die Halterung wird mit 4 Torx-Schrauben befestigt. An meiner Bolt M4 saß die Optik sehr fest und wackelte nicht.
