Anyone have experience with M2HB optic sight DCL120 by DI Optical

Location: Albuquerque, New Mexico

19 posts in this topic

The model number is for a heads up red dot sight for 12.7mm .50 Browning with a range knob for adjusting the impact range of the dot.  They make red dot sights for 50-762-556 heavy and LMGs with range knobs to adjusting the red dot.   DI Optical sold some 1000 of the DCL120s to the US military for use in Afghanistan back in the 2007s or so.  Anyone use or heard of issues or how this sight worked on the Ma Deuce?  Also interested in info on the DCL110 and DCL100s made for SAW and other LMGs in the two smaller calibers.    Anyone ever use the DCL110 or DCL100?  Recoil issues?  Not seen one for sale in forever - any in private hands?

This is Definetely the wrong board for this and is likely gonna get zapped  .... but.... to answer your question, I have had multiple 110s .... the ones below we use for 50s , 240 (for aircraft applications) , miniguns etc.... great optics .... used by us military as well as other allied forces.
   Very easy to make adjustments with it, huge reticle but not to big for easy target acquisition ....

   in my opinion the 120 is to big. It is absolutely gigantic ... the 110 is more then large enough to get the job done.

I wanted to get one of those.. but couldn't figure out where to buy one.. I might still want to get one (110) if someone has a supplier..

So I ended up buying a Spuhr BAM which utilizes a Aimpoint CompM4 and a Aimpoint magnifier. Like anything Spuhr, it's a quality piece of work.

I bought mine from Mile High Shooting since I had a account with them.

I noticed that the DCL120 was sort of large on the M2HB in their literatures...but I get that I don't need great target acquisition since what I shoot at hardly moves or dodges:D. the 110-3x looks like the one for my HK21 and the M2HBs

Anyone ever look at the newer  FCS13RE by Aimpoint?  It look like a candidate for my Ma Deuces too,  if the price is in the same ballpark?! And then there is the also new digital/video technology represented by the Intelli-Optics MGS - that thing looks like it could be mounted on anything.  I'd like to consider those two as well as the DCL 11o-3x but the Trijicon is way out  there with the 3x option on cost alone....

@daninnm I suspect you’d be very happy with a 110 for those two guns. Perfect size. These are night vision compatible as well. An all around good optic. Like the trijicons, These are also very very costly / hard to find...

   Both these and the trijicons are proven Optics and have been used hard by the military / militaries ... I went with the DCLs because I just liked the look of the optic better then the trijicons.. that’s just me though

WHAT ABOUT A DCL 100 for the HK21 and a DCL 110-3X for the Ma Deuce?  Found two companies that have stock and decent prices

I have never used a 100 so I am not sure on those.....The medium machine guns we run use (depending on what we are doing) Elcan M145s, Eotechs , trijicon 6x48s , Trijicon ACOGs, or the 110s ... I have found all of those hold up great to the violent firing cycles. Again all used by the Military and battle proven optics.

@Ryo , Ha! Thank you for the kind words sir.... that 34 looks great man... I'm Getting a 42 together right now... But the more I look at these 34s the more I want one. Seem to be a few decently priced pre samples out there.

Dealer samples are very reasonable, which is the reason I got this one. 

Of course I went overboard on my setup... 

Post war MG3 LAFETTE.. Maybe one day I might find an affordable MG34 Lafette or even a MG34 Lafette for sale. :(

I would love to get a MG42 to go along with this. 

If you do get the MG34, BRP sells a nice 308 kit that worked in my MG34.

    Some more detailed photos of one of these. This one FDE ..  has a 4x magnifier (instead of 3x) with ranging reticle .... a quick adjustment knob which goes out to 2000. NVG compatible. These all Come in a very nice hard case.

How do you get the 4X flip up when the DCL110-3x only lists the 3x telescope......4x would certainly be more useful than 3x.  Is it an option?????

OR IS THAT A DIFFERENT SIGHT THAN THE DCL110????  is GDR the manufacturer? or user?  $2000 is a better price than I have seen the DCL110-3x selling for!!!!

These are definitely not $2,000...way more..... I was saying the range adjustment knob goes out to 2,000 (meters)....  I don't think these 4x ones are offered. This was contract overrun for a military contract. It is in fact a DCL110 made by GRD

I’ve got one that I’ve used on my Ma Duece. I’m selling all of my collection so let me know if you’re interested and what you’d be willing to pay.
