Bushnell has added yet another affordable reflex sight to their lineup with the introduction of the RXS-100. Designed with user-adjustable brightness settings and multi-platform versatility, the new RXS-100 offers great value in a sub-$100 optic.

The core of the RXS-100, which is compatible with both rifles and optic-ready pistols, is a crisp 4-MOA Red with eight brightness settings and battery life that provides over 5,000 hours of runtime on the mid setting.

“With the introduction of the RXS-100, we are able to offer users a reliable, affordable reflex sight that has all of the features they requested for under $100,” said Derek Osburn, Director of Optics for Vista Outdoor. “The RXS-100 stands out from other red dots currently on the market by providing a clear, bright dot that has been designed to withstand the harsh recoil experienced when slide-mounted on pistols. We are excited to be able to bring this combination of quality and value to the reflex market and continue Bushnell’s long-standing legacy of purpose-built products.”

The new sight utilizes an energy efficient, point source LED to create a collimated beam for a clear, strong 4-MOA red dot. It also features a 12-hour auto-off timer to extend battery life. The side-loading battery is designed for easy replacement without removing the sight from the firearm, so zero is retained. Durability of the sight comes from a rugged, aircraft-grade aluminum housing that keeps glass and electronic internal components protected against recoil and rough field use. An oversized hood helps reduce glare and enhances lens durability against impact.

In addition, RXS-100 offers a convenient layout and design, including detented windage/elevation adjustments with 1 MOA per click and digital controls with push-button actuation for brightness setting adjustments. To maximize light transmission, RXS-100 has True Tone coatings that mitigate blue tint on the glass. Other items included with the red dot include basic mounting and adjustment tools, a protective form-fit cover, cleaning cloth and CR2032 battery. MSRP is $99.99.
