Forward Controls Design Adjustable Turret Caps For The Aimpoint Comp M5 Optic

The pair of Forward Controls Design ATA Caps replace the original elevation and windage adjustment caps that are difficult to use and easily lost, allowing you to adjust the optic without removing and/or losing the caps. If you have used an Aimpoint Comp M5, you have probably experienced the frustration of losing the original elevation and windage adjustment caps. Forward Controls Design solved that frustration with their set of Adjustable Turret Caps For the Aimpoint Comp M5 optic.The adjustable turret caps for the Aimpoint Comp M5 are a simple and robust solution and consists of 2 caps and 2 discs, giving the user the ability to make adjustments to either the windage or elevation without removing the caps. The Aimpoint Comp M5 turret diameter is different from that of the T1 and T2. ATA Comp M5 caps are not compatible with T1, T2, or M5b which has its own elevation and windage caps.

ATA Comp M5 consists of a pair of 17-4 SS billet machined cap with internal o-ring and a 17-4 SS rotating disc with an externally accessible top slot. The disc has two dots/protrusions that mate perfectly with the two indentations of the adjustment dial on the sight. To make adjustments to either the windage or elevation, the user uses the rim of a cartridge (.223, .308, .45 ACP, and 9mm were tested) or a coin to rotate the externally accessible disc of the ATA Comp M5.

The internal
o-ring prevents undue moisture from entering the ATA Comp M5. In water immersion testing, the ATA Comp M5's ability to keep out water is on par with the single piece factory cap, to the depth of 77ft. To wit, T1 and T2 windage and elevation adjustments are water resistant even without the caps; they can't be taken to Aimpoint specified depths without the caps on. Aimpoint only warranties the sights to the advertised depths with the caps installed. When installing the ATA Comp M5 please do not remove the o-rings already present on the sight.

ATA Comp M5 is billet machined in 17-4 stainless steel, and QPQ treated. ATA Comp M5 is shipped partially assembled (with lubricated o-rings installed inside the caps, the disc is not installed inside the cap). It is far faster and easier to install the ATA Comp M5 on the sight with the cap and disc separated (instructions are provided on the back of the card).

In place of the factory marking UP/R with a counter clockwise arrow, ATA Comp M5's discs have the counter clockwise arrow, but individual caps for UP and R. As much as it may seem common sense that the elevation adjustment is always on top, and the windage adjustment is always on the side, the marking UP/R can be confusing to new shooters. At the risk of being redundant, the ATA Comp M5's disc with the UP engraving is installed on top (for elevation), the disc with R engraving is installed on the right side (for windage). The ATA Comp M5 is proudly made in USA.

Note: ATA is shipped with the internal o-ring already installed. It is a good idea to keep the o-rings (both the
o-rings on the base of the adjustments, and ATA's internal o-rings) lubricated with silicon based lubrication. In a pinch, petroleum jelly can be used as a substitute, but FCD recommends using the correct lube (silicon based o-ring lube) for the ATA. ATA caps should remain stationary when the discs are rotated, though it is acceptable for the ATA caps to rotate 90 degrees in either direction as long as the caps still apply pressure on the o-ring on the base of the adjustment.  When there is excessive cap movement (i.e. the caps easily moves in unison with the disc while making adjustment), silicon based o-ring lubricant should be applied to ATA's internal o-ring. ATA disc's engravings are small, as the discs are small.  For better visibility, white crayon or Laquer-stik (on Amazon) can be used to fill in the engraving. Optic, optic mount and battery cap are not included.
