Posted on 14th Jan 2015 @ 9:22 PM




MADISON HEIGHTS, Michigan (January 2015) –  BROWE, Inc. a manufacturer of premium quality optical systems has set a new standard in quality, performance and functionality with the introduction of its forged 7075-T6 aluminum version of its combat optic, 4x32 BROWE Tactical Optic (BTO).


The 4x32 BROWE Tactical Optic (BTO) was designed to include all of the patented technology and internal components used in the production of the 4x32 BROWE Combat Optic.  The difference is the 4x32 BTO is package into a military-grade forged 7075-T6 Aluminum-alloy housing with an integrated MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny quick release mount featuring an American Defense patented QD AUTOLOCKLever System. 

 “In parallel with some international request for quotes, we set out to design a competitively priced optic that retained all of our patented functionality,” said Brian Browe, president of BROWE, Inc.  “This project gave us the opportunity to take a fresh look at our design, along with the material choice we also integrated the mount into the housing which increased the strength and reduced weight.  The aluminum forging also gives us the flexibility to custom machine the mounting surface for unique applications.”


The new 4x32 BTO is a purpose designed and built optic ideally suited for tactical scenarios.  The forged 7075-T6 aircraft aluminum alloy housing provides a nearly indestructible optic system ideality suited for military, law Enforcement, and sportsmen.   


The 4x32 BTO continues the heritage of evolutionary patented technology and includes features such as:


Target Light Sensor Technology 

 A cadmium-sulfide photocell located in the optical path that measures the light transmission and automatically adjusts the reticle illumination to the proper brightness.  When in a stationary position an operator may be faced with a multitude of target light conditions even through the ambient light stays consistent.  Also, while on the move, environment light is constantly changing.  The Target Light Sensor Technology simplifies the operation and allows the operator to focus on the job at hand.  Simple. Intuitive. Effective.


Single Intuitive Control (SIC)

Gives the user a single operation button, designed to stimulate muscle memory and expedite operation.


BCO Microcontroller 

Unique to the industry, the microcontroller is capable of being re-flashed with customized or updated operating firmware via a sealed utility port. This port can be used to import or export power for accessories or plug in a remote pressure pad switch for manual operation.


Smart Electronics 

The electronics are designed to conserve battery life by placing the optic into SLEEP mode when the optic has be left on or stored and not in use. The BTO has an average battery life of over 2000 hours and 775 hours at the max setting.  In the sleep mode, the battery will maintain the full 10 years shelf life expectancy of a Lithium 123A battery.

The 4x32 BTO also combines best-in-class features such as high quality optical glass, high precision machining, and rugged military design.  All lenses are precision ground of the finest quality optical glass available and are broad band anti-reflective coated, possessing excellent light gathering capabilities even under low light conditions.
