    ELCAN recently upgraded to the CR2032 battery and flat plate cover. Not only does it provide a slim profile, the weight is slightly less, but most importantly, the battery life is more than three times that of the DL 1/3N. Another advantage is that these new style batteries are easier to find and are less expensive.           

    Why choose between a Red Dot or Telescopic sight when you can have both by simply flipping a lever?

    The SpecterDR™ Dual Fields-of-View (DFOV) sight provides both close quarter and precision fire ranged capability in a single package. Whether utilizing the Red Dot in 1x or 1.5x magnification or the ranging reticle in 4x or 6x mode, the SpecterDR™ DFOV sight provides ultra-wide viewing angles for optimal situational awareness and unmatched low-light performance. The SpecterDR™ DFOV sight allows the user to safely and effectively transition in and out of building for close quarter or extended range without changing sights. (Old Battery Housing is only shown for illustration purposes).

    The 1x or 1.5x FOV provides a generous viewing angle (24° in the 1-4x and 16° in the 1.5-6x version) and an extremely fast, "both eyes open" target acquisition capability. The second FOV provides 4x or 6x magnified sight (FOV 6° & 4° respectively), a range compensating reticle, long-range target identification and precision marksmanship capability.

    The two unique Fields-of-View (FOV)are easily and quickly interchanged by means of the patent-pending, locking lever mechanism on the side of the optical housing.

    The 1X-4X Model shown above is for illustration purposes but the 1.5X-6X model works the same way. The Anti-Reflection Device (ARD) or Killflash is required for the Objective Flip-Up Lens Cover to work.

    If you have an older model ARD, with a smooth edge (see image on left) and want to use the Flip-Covers (UAC013-FCR), you'll need to install the Adapter Ring first (52FC01-FCV). The Adapter Ring locks onto the ARD (ARD-SDR6-B) and adds a profiled (knurled) edge. The profiled edge holds the Flip-Cover in place and gives a foothold to the Flip-Cover to open without slipping off.
        Because there were issues with the Adapter Rings breaking (Metal Allen Screw w/Plastic Housing)... Tenebraex released a new ARD that incorporates that profiled edge onto the ARD and this eliminates the need for the Adapter Ring on the Objective End.

    What's more, Tenebraex also released a new Ocular Flip Cover that's designed to be installed directly to the eyepiece end without the Adapter Ring. When you buy through KERIF Night Vision, we'll include these new ARD's and new Flip-Cover Sets with every sight purchased.

    Starting in March 2017, there is another change you need to be aware of. With the development of the new ARD's with a profiled edge, you are only able to use the 2 Tab Flip Cover with it. The 2 Tab Flip Covers can be used with the smaller diameter ARD's w/Profiled Edge or with the Adapter Ring SDR-AR6-AR (which eliminates the need for the ARD to be attached).

    Optional Clear Lens and Amber Lens Flip-Cover Kits are available. See chart below for a full list of accessories.

    If you prefer to operate the DFOV156 without the ARD, yet still want Lens protection, you can either use the Bikini-Style Cover (OSC-SDR6-B) or you can use an Attachment Ring (SDR-AR6-AR) that threads into the objective end of the sight itself [With ARD Remover]. Please note that you must use the Flip-Cover w/2 Tabs with all the new ARD's and with the SDR-AR6-AR Adapter Ring.




         The ELCAN SpecterDR 1.5-6X is the second evolution in the family of Dual Role Optical Sights. Based upon the battle-proven SpecterDR design, the higher magnification enables greater precision and longer engagement ranges, while at the same time providing an exceptional 16˚ Field of View (FOV) in CQB (Close Quarters Combat) mode.
         A revolutionary design that combines the best of close and precision fire ranged combat features into a single, low profile Dual Field-Of-View (DFOV) sight. Unlike typical sights with zoom mechanisms, the SpecterDR offers an optimized optical path and identical eye relief in both 1.5X and 6X modes.

         The SpecterDR 1.5-6X capitalizes on crystal clear optics as well as a generous eye relief, making it an ideal instrument for designated marksman rifles and other long range applications.

          As with all SpecterDR sights, the Magnification and Field of View can be changed instantly with the throw of a lever.



    (5.56x45mm) is calibrated w/NATO M855 (62gr) on a 20" Barrel
    (7.62x51mm) is calibrated w/a Blended 147gr NATO/168gr match on a 20" Barrel

    In the late 1970’s NATO countries agreed that they needed a replacement for the 7.62 x 51mm round that was currently in use. The issue with the 7.62 × 51mm was that the gun weight, ammunition weight, gun length, and recoil were all not suitable for the type of combat that was currently taking place in the world.

    From this, the lighter 5.56 x 45mm NATO round was brought into existence. It provided a high-velocity round that had a flatter trajectory than its 7.62 × 51mm predecessor. The lighter recoil was more tailored to semi-automatic and automatic firing in the field, and the soldier could carry the same amount or more ammunition at a much lighter weight.

    This round was derived from the .223 Remington round, and contrary to popular belief is not the same as the .223. While rifles chambered for 5.56 × 45mm NATO rounds can chamber .223 Rem cartridges, not all .223 chambered rifles can fire 5.56 × 45mm NATO rounds because of the higher pressure generated when firing.

    While the 5.56×45 NATO round is known for its military service, it is also extremely popular in civilian circles as the ever popular AR-15 is chambered for these rounds.

    Ammunition is widely available and comes in a variety of bullet weights and designs to match the user’s needs. The most common bullet weights range from 50 up 75 to grains.

    Depending upon the situation, the user may adjust the sight to illuminate the crosshair or just a brilliant Red Dot in the center. Because the reticle is etched into the glass, it is plainly visible even in the case of loss of electrical power due to battery failure or EMP.

         With its Dual-Role capability, the SpecterDR 1.5-6X comes with an integrated LED that illuminates just the center in Red Dot (6 MOA @ 1.5X) mode and lets soldiers move safely through buildings or confined areas, and then switch instantly to (1.5 MOA @ 6X), illuminating the crosshair for long range, low light use to accurately engage enemies at extended range without changing sights.

    Once in a while, the question comes up about why the reticle isn't illuminated across the entire crosshair and here is ELCAN’s official reply to it.

    “It's totally normal; the reason it doesn’t show completely across the vertical axis, or uneven in some cases, is because of the dual illumination feature, (the center dot and the cross hairs illuminating independently) the reticle is never illuminated fully across the entire crosshair with the single source of light. It's typical behavior “The DR has the dual illumination feature (dot or reticle) which is unique in the industry. One of the design aspects of this feature is a non-centered illumination of the reticle which gives these sorts of artifacts. The reticle is etched into the glass and is visible during the day regardless of the illumination setting. If you need to illuminate the reticle to enhance your targeting, it’s because the outside lighting is subdued. When viewed at night in conjunction with Night Vision or used at Dusk/Dawn or even in an overcast environment, an illumination of the entire reticle would be overkill and detrimental to the target area because it would wash out what you wanted (need) to see.”

    I’d also like to point out that if the crosshair is too bright it could potentially damage your Night Vision Scope and interfere with your body’s natural Night Vision*. As the range increases, the size of your target area decreases, therefore the “feathered” edged illumination is an attribute, not a detriment. It would be like shining a flashlight at your face while trying to look outward into the dark. There is absolutely no reason to illuminate the outer edges of the reticle other that aesthetics.

    *Here’s a paragraph taken from our PVS-14 webpage that describes this.

    "Night Blindness" is caused by molecules called "Rhodopsin". The Rod of your eye undergoes a change in shape as it absorbs light. Rhodopsin is the chemical that allows natural Night-Vision, and is extremely sensitive. When exposed to a spectrum of light, the pigment immediately bleaches and takes about 30 minutes to regenerate fully, although most of the adaptation occurs within the first five or ten minutes in the dark. Rhodopsin in the human rods is less sensitive to the longer red wavelengths of light, so many people use red light to help preserve night vision as it only slowly depletes the eye's Rhodopsin stores in the rods and instead is viewed by the cones.”

         The Vertical Subtention Optical Rangefinder or VSOR is incorporated within the Field of View and allows the marksman to estimate the distance to targets by matching the height of a known object within the Field-Of-View. The vertical distance for range estimation is 76 centimeters or 30 inches. By selecting the set of rangefinder lines that best fit the object, the marksman may read the correct range at the top of the rangefinder. Once the range is known, the marksman may engage targets at the range by aiming from the appropriate ballistic aiming mark in the reticle. The optical sight has no internal surfaces that will reflect laser interrogation. The exterior includes heavy rain /emergency aiming features on top of the optical housing and incorporates a hard-anodized external finish.

         SpecterDR is half the weight and twice the capability of carrying two scopes, without compromise to mission effectiveness or reliability. Attached onto a Mil-Std-1913 Picatinny base with A.R.M.S. throw lever mounts, zeroing is incorporated in the integral mount.

         The mount has two levers which fasten the sight to the ‘Picatinny’ rail and allow the sight to be removed and reattached without the need to re-zero. The mount is adjustable for zero in both elevation and azimuth (Windage).

         The mount is designed to withstand rough usage in operation. Anti-backlash springs in the elevation and azimuth mechanisms permit flexibility, but always return the sight to the zero position. A tension spring between the optical main body and the mount rail grabber removes vertical movement by applying tension to the two halves of the mount.

    Mount Locking Levers

    The locking levers are used to secure the sight to the weapon’s “Picatinny” rail. SpecterDR 1.5x - 6x uses 2 ARMS type low profile locking levers that point rearward when locked. The mount base also provides for additional tie/wire wrap points so that the ARMS levers can be locked in place if desired.

    Back-Up Iron Sights

    Integral Back-Up Iron Sights are located on the top of the SpecterDR 1.5x - 6x. These sights can be removed and replaced should they ever become damaged or need to be re-positioned off the vertical axis. These sights consist of a 5 mm diameter peep rear sight and a 2.5 mm wide post front sight. The sights are intended for use in heavy rain and emergency defense situations. The back up iron sight axis is parallel to the sight optical axis and does not require separate zeroing.

    Elevation Zeroing Dial

    The zero dial is located at the lower rear of the mount. This dial allows for elevation zeroing only while the elevation zeroing lock is disengaged.

    Elevation Zeroing Lock

    The elevation zeroing lock (silver tab) is located just above the elevation zeroing dial. It is only used during elevation zeroing. Move the lock UP to permit ½ MOA per click elevation zeroing. Move the lock DOWN to lock the elevation zero.

    Important: To prevent damage be sure that the lock is fully disengaged before attempting to turn the elevation zeroing dial.

    For best results, set the magnification to 6x when zeroing! (A detailed explanation for zeroing can be found in the OPMAN)

    ● Adjust the elevation dial as required. Each click of the elevation dial moves the point of impact by one-half MOA (approximately 1/2” at 100 yards). Turn the dial to the Right to Raise the point of impact, turn to the Left to Lower the point of impact.

    When satisfied with elevation zero, lower the zeroing lock (silver tab) fully to lock the elevation zero at its current setting.

    Azimuth Reference

    The front yoke on the sight housing has space gaps between the yoke and the mount base plate. When each of the two gaps shows equal spacing, the sight is roughly at azimuth center. Figure 2-4

    Azimuth (Windage) Adjustment Screw

    The azimuth adjustment screw is located at the front right side of the mount. It is rotated to left or right to change the Mean Point of Impact (MPI) of the bullets. A coin or rim of a cartridge case can be used to turn the adjustment screw. Rotate the screw clockwise to move the point of impact to the right. Rotate the screw counter clockwise to move the point of impact to the left. Each ‘click’ moves the point of impact ½ Minute of Angle (MOA) (approximately ½” at 100 yards).

    ● Azimuth zeroing uses the Windage screw found at the front of the mount. Rotate the front right Windage screw counter clockwise to move the point of impact to the left; clockwise to move to the right. Each click of the Windage screw moves the point of impact by one-half MOA (approximately 1/2” at 100 yards). Figure 2-4

    ● Elevation zeroing uses the elevation dial the bottom rear of the mount. Unlock the zeroing lock (silver tab) by raising it up as far as it will go. Be sure that the lock pin at the bottom of the zeroing lock is fully disengaged from the elevation dial.

    Battery Cap (Old Style) and Lanyard

    The fluted battery cap sits on top of the Illumination Rotary Switch. It can be removed by hand by unscrewing it counter clockwise (CCW). A lanyard is attached at the top of the battery cap to prevent its loss when changing the battery. The battery cap should only be tightened by hand until snug so that it can later be removed by hand.

    Reticle Illumination Knob

    Rotation of the knob illuminates the reticle at varying levels of brightness. Reference marks on the housing indicate the operating positions of the switch

    1. Counter Clockwise from off, illuminates the Red Dot with 5 intensity levels – 2 for Night Vision equipment use, and 3 for low light and daytime use.

    2. Clockwise from off, illuminates the ballistic reticle with 5 intensity levels - 2 for Night Vision equipment use, and 3 for low light use.

    NOTE: The SpecterDR is designed for use with forward mounted night vision such as the AN/PVS-22


    Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane has purchased ELCAN’s SpecterDR (Dual Role) optical sights, as part of their SOPMOD kit designated SU-230/PVS-C articulated telescope. Situational awareness in both magnifications is improved with Ultra-Wide viewing angles and unmatched viewing in low light conditions.
         The DR sight has two fields of view. The first is a 1.5X unity powered (reflex type) sight with a 16°FOV (Field-of-View). The sight incorporates a Dual Thickness Ballistic Crosshair w/User Selectable Red Dot and VSOR Rangefinder. This feature provides the shooter with a both eyes open, extremely fast target acquisition, close combat sight that is necessary in modern urban warfare.

    The sight can quickly be re-configured to a 6X Magnification telescopic scope by moving a lever on the side of the sight. This 6X configuration provides the shooter with long-range target identification, surveillance and with a precision marksmanship capability out to and beyond 800 meters range.

    Combat Modes:
    CQB - 1.5X with Red Dot, Both Eyes Open
    Long Range - 6X with Ballistic Drop Reticle
    Machine Gun - 6X with Red Dot and Ranging Mount
    Iron Sight - Emergency Defense and Heavy Rain

        An affordable Weapon Sight designed specifically for Military, Homeland Security, Police and Security Professionals. The uses a bright Red Spot for fast Close-Quarters aiming, plus a ranged NSN Reticle for accurate engagement to 800 meters.

    • - Switches instantly from close combat (1.5X) to telescopic (6Xx)

    • - Eye relief (cheekweld) and bore sighting remain constant

    • - Large, low light exit pupil remains constant

    • - High efficiency coatings for extended low light performance

    • - Integrated lever-lock mount for optimum weigh reduction

    • - Rugged, Reliable Performance

    • - Shock Protected Precision Optics

    • - Integrated back-up iron sights are bore sighted to scope

        Built to the same legendary rugged standards as other ELCAN® weapon sighting systems, the SpecterDR is a shock and water-resistant sight that will withstand the forces generated by repeated recoil.
         Once sighted-in to a particular weapon, the sight may be interchanged with other ELCAN
    ® optical and electro-optical sights zeroed for the same weapon in a matter of seconds and without noticeable change in point of impact.

     In "High-Risk" security applications (Nuclear Plants, Oil Refineries and Pipelines, Water Treatment Plants, Port Authorities, Penitentiary Facilities), government law enforcement agencies can more effectively locate, identify and neutralize hostile threats with reduced risk.
