Breaching (LE / SWAT)

Overview of the Alpha TARAC (Target Acquisition)

The Alpha Tarac is a flip-up optical accessory built for ARs (or comparable rifles) to switch from CQB to long range, from 100yd zero to 15ft, or to subsonic - instantly - using a lens.

Each lens will shift an operator's zero to a new value, and depending on the magnitude of the shift will determine its (ballistic) application.  A 11.5 MOA shift on Rifle 1 will also shift exactly 11.5 MOA on Rifle 2.  So by knowing your ballistics, you can quickly and accurately pop-on a new ballistic range to any series of rifles.

Lenses can be swapped by removing one bolt, and we never use special bolts or wrenches.  Everything is designed with the end user - you - in mind.  Bolts can be found at Ace Hardware (or comparable store).  The Macro Alpha (the 2.25" lens model) has an available magnetic option to magnetically swap lenses.  This affords you the ability to swap lenses instantly without tools.  Therefore, if you have multiple rifles, you could use one Macro Alpha and a series of lenses customized to each rifle.  Or, if you have one rifle, you could use one Macro Alpha and a series of lenses customized to each ballistic application so you could breach, switch from CQB to Long Range, and shoot subsonic with your M4 (in this example, each application require its own lens).  

Again, this option of switching lenses is available on all Alpha models.  Either swap lenses by removing one bolt (easy) or magnetically (easy).

1.25" lens vs 2.25" lens

The Micro 1.25" lens makes for an extremely small, compact unit built to match Aimpoints (or comparable optics) and 1-6x scopes.  The Macro 2.25" lens offers significantly larger field of view, and with the magnetic add-on operators can swap lenses for different ballistic applications without tools and with a snap.  Both can be used for either breaching, CQB to long range, or subsonic.

Out-of-the-box weapon ready

When you receive your unit, there will be no need for adjustment.  Mount anywhere on your rail in front of your optic (flipping toward or away from your optic) with the LaRue QR.

600 is the new 300

There is absolutely no training or understanding of ballistics or holdovers required to shoot 600 yds when using the Alpha.  Just flip, aim (put the center dot on target), and pull the trigger.

Use with a magnifier

Use the Alpha with your magnifier for a complete tactical advantage.  One optic for magnification.  One optic for ballistics.


Counting holdover dots in (a high-octane) fire fight may not always be the simplest task.  Flipping an optic and focusing on one MOA dot is.  With the Alpha, instantly increase range and combat effectiveness with just one dot and pull the trigger.

Does not magnify reticle

The Alpha Tarac will not magnify your reticle.  Therefore, your 2 MOA dot will stay 2 MOA and you will not run the risk of covering your target.  If our unit ever failed, just flip it down or pull it off and you still have a full functionality of your optic.

Lenses are highly scratch resistant

Lenses are highly scratch resistant and harder than most high-end scopes.  These units are meant to be quickly rinsed in a bucket of (soapy) water and left out to dry.  (Keep bolts oiled.)
