AT3 Tactical had a chance to help our troops by supplying 45-degree iron sights to a Marine sniper platoon in Afghanistan.
We honor the service of all the heroes serving our country, and it is truly humbling to get a chance to help them through a product donation like this.
We were contacted in late December by Lance Cpl. Nat Small, a former Marine sniper who recently served in Afghanistan. Nat is a decorated Marine veteran who earned the Bronze Star with “V” for his actions during a fierce battle atop an Afghan ridge in 2010.
He had tried out our 45-degree rapid transition sights IS-02, and he knew that this was something that could help protect his platoon that was still serving.
“As a former sniper I watched a brother cut down by machine gun fire from a “surprise” target in Afghanistan,” Nat said.
“He was unable to acquire the enemy fighter in his 12 power sights and I think this product could have changed the outcome. The mission has changed – Raids, house clearing etc. – and my entire platoon feels they could benefit from having them on their weapons – MK11’s and M4’s.”
We consider it a privilege to help. Thank You and God Bless our troops!
Here are a couple of pictures of their newly set-up weapons:
