The optic includes 160 MOA of windage and elevation adjustability and runs off one CR123A battery, which is included. Battery life ranges from 700 hours to 4,300 hours, depending on usage. The housing is constructed from aircraft-grade aluminum and is shockproof. The unit is recoil-rated to maintain zero up to .338 Lapua Mag. The Impulse mounts on any Picatinny accessory rail. Flip-up lens caps are included with the optic.

The Firefield Impact Mini Reflex Sight can be used on rifles, handguns and shotguns to provide instantaneous target acquisition. The Impact is rated IP55 weather resistant and features a compact design for a low-profile addition to a firearm. The unit runs off a single CR1632 battery and features a battery life of 40 hours on the highest setting. The 5-MOA red dot reticle is adjustable up to 120 MOA for elevation and windage.

The Impulse Red Dot Sight retails at a suggested price of $143.99, while the Impact Mini Reflex Sight retails at a suggested price of $59.99.
