Laser Max Sights

LaserMax is launching a new line of red-dot sights designed for pistol- and long gun-platforms. These new sights reflect Laser Max’s 25 years of expertise in laser aiming solutions, which translates into a series of red-dot sights that cater to your shooting needs.

The new red-dot sight line features four distinct models, each working with a wide range of firearms and user preferences. All models feature advanced functions such as external light sensors which automatically adjust the brightness of the red dot based on ambient lighting conditions to ensure optimal visibility in any lighting environment. Additionally, users can manually adjust multiple brightness settings and benefit from the convenient shake-awake feature.

"We're excited to bring the same dedication to quality, innovation and performance that we've put into our laser sights over the years into our new red-dot-sight line," said Alex Chavez, Sr. Product Manager at LaserMax. "Our goal is to provide superior optics and the most advanced technology to give users the tactical advantage, and these new red-dot sights are the realization of that vision.

The LaserMax red dot sight line includes the following models:
