No matter your firearm, budget, intended use or requirements, we’ve got a newly introduced optic for you. Read on to learn about your options.
C-More Systems | RTS2B-V5 The RTS2B-V5 incorporates hardened electronics with a motion-sensing system and auto-off functions. It features a heads-up display for rapid target acquisition and has positive 1-MOA click adjustments. A removable battery compartment means there’s no need to re-zero after changing batteries.
Hi-Lux | TD-3 Available in the fourth quarter of 2020, the latest red-dot from Hi-Lux sports a circle-dot reticle, but that’s only the default option. The user will have the ability to cycle through multiple reticles on this ultracompact, affordable MRDS.
Magnification: 1X Objective Lens Dimensions: 28x19 mm Reticle: 34-MOA circle with 3-MOA dot Length: 1.78 inches Weight: 1.5 ounces MSRP: $239 (888) 445-8912; hi-luxoptics.com
Leupold | DeltaPoint Pro Night Vision Leupold’s popular DeltaPoint Pro now has fine-tunable brightness settings to work with night-vision gear. The red-dot sight features a rugged, aluminum housing and steel sheath. Precision is assured with click adjustments and an easy-access compartment simplifies battery changes. It’s available in black or FDE and works well with ARs and shotguns, as well as pistols.

Shield Sights | RMS2-4MOA An all-new version of the company’s Reflex Mini-Sight, the RMS2 comes in a new robust design. Featuring thicker side walls, the housing is significantly stronger. With a low profile and SiO2 quartz-coated polymer lens, this glass senses target light levels and controls LED output, giving optimum visibility of the dot against the target.
SIG Sauer | RomeoZero Optimized for everyday carry, the tiny, ultra-lightweight RomeoZero fits the same footprint as the Shield RMS-c and JPoint MRDS optics, making it easy to add to a host of pistols on the market, particularly slim-profile models like the SIG Sauer P365XL and Springfield Armory Hellcat.
