FAQ

F.A.Q.
I would like to be able to add FAQ’s and answers as required.
What can I mount this on?
The 4x32 BCO is equipped with a throw lever flat-top mount to interface directly to any standard Mil. Std. 1913 mounting rail.  The mil std.1913 mount rail is the universal mounting platform used on modern tactical firearms which is typically sub guns, M16/AR15 carbines, shotguns, etc. 
Can I set this up and zero the 4x32 BCO myself?
Yes. This exercise is identical to setting up any scope on a firearm.  Simply mount 4x32 BCO securely to the weapon platform and use the windage and elevation adjustments to zero the optic.  
Can I use the 4x32 for long range engagement?
The 4x32 BCO is an obvious choice for an M16 or M4 where the weapon is used both for CQB and for longer range engagements.  The long range benefit is the ability to observe, acquire, and engage targets much further than what is capable with a standard 1x CQB sight.  The BCO has a ballistic ranging reticle designed to hit targets from CQB ranges to 800m.    
Can the 4x32 BCO be used for CQB applications? 
Yes, the illuminated reticle pattern of the BCO along with two-eye-open aiming techniques allow the 4x32 BCO to be used in CQB situations.
Is the BCO waterproof?
The BCO is hermetically sealed and designed to surpass military requirements of 66ft.  The BCO has been tested have be proven that the seals are capable of reaching depths beyond 130ft.   
Is the 4x32 BCO tough enough?
The Housing and external caps are made from Titanium.  Titanium, sometimes called the “space age metal”, is 60% more dense than aluminum, but more than twice as strong as the most commonly used 6061-T6 aluminum alloy.  The two most touted properties of Titanium are its corrosion resistance and the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal.  Titanium is branded to be as strong as steel, but 45% lighter.   This material was chosen by design to be the strongest optical housing in the industry.  Our engineering team designed the 4x32 BCO to handle severe drop tests, physical abuse and punishment, and the most extreme tactical environments.  The proven internal adjustable prism system and state-of-the-art electronics were designed to withstand the toughest environments known to man.  Simple fact…It’s tough enough.
What ballistic curve was used to calibrate the reticle in the BCO-001?
The 5.56 NATO – M4 with M855 was the ballistic chart used to calibrate the BCO-001. 
What are the most important factors for determining a bullet drop compensator?
Muzzle velocity, ballistic coefficient, and the height above bore are the main determining factors when calculating bullet drop.  
What batteries are suited for use in the BCO 4x32? 
The Surefire® SF123A is highly recommend, but you can also use Panasonic®, Duracell® and Energizer® batteries bought from their authorized dealers. 
Will using alternative brand batteries void the warranty? 
Using genuine, Surefire®, Panasonic®, Duracell® or Energizer® batteries will not void your warranty, but using a counterfeit or inferior battery could.   Many counterfeit or inferior lithium batteries don't have the power output characteristics or built-in fault (short-circuit) protection that good quality brand name batteries have.  This can cause poor performance or even be dangerous to you and your BROWE Combat Optic.
