Styrka announced the introduction of its new S3 Red Dot, which is designed for use in hunting, competitive shooting, personal-defense and plinking.

The S3 Red Dot features a double-lens optical system that is designed to eliminate parallax while providing increased clarity, ensuring that shooters can get their rounds on target, no matter the distance. The lenses feature indexed coatings that work with both red- and green-dot models, ensuring that point-of-aim errors are eliminated with the S3 line.

The red dot itself is constructed from 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum, ensuring its strength and durability and features a sealed waterproof housing that has been tested for submersion up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. The interior of the optic is nitrogen-purged in order to prevent fogging.

Styrka's S3 red dot features six different brightness settings that allow the user to adjust the red dot to match the brightness of the surrounding terrain. The sight features an auto shut-off feature that turns the red dot off after one hour of no movement, preserving battery life. When the optic is used again, the integrated last-setting return function brings up the last brightness setting used by the operator.

The Styrka S3 Red Dot is available in 3 different models. The two red-dot models are available in 2.5-MOA dot and 5-MOA dot configurations, depending on the end user's preference. The company also offers a 5-MOA green-dot model.

All S3 Red Dots come with a high-rise mount, as well as a honeycomb filter to reduce objective-lens glare. The optics also ship with a custom neoprene cover, as well as a cleaning cloth. The sights retail at a suggested price of $329.95.
