Viridian Weapon Technologies is adding two new sights to its EON Optics lineup. The EON 1x20 Red Dot and EON 1x35 Red Dot allow for rapid target acquisition in a robust and compact package. These new 2-MOA dots offer parallax-free precision at 100 yards and are covered by Viridian’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.

“Viridian is proud to be expanding our line of optics with these highly versatile red dots,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “Red Dots are perfect for pistol caliber carbines, tactical shotguns and rifles. Our new EON Red Dots combine precision with durable dependability. From range work to self-defense, red dots speed up time-to-target when you need it most.” 

The 2-MOA reticle inside the EON 1x20 Red Dot offers 10 illumination settings and can be mounted directly to a Picatinny rail with the included see-through riser. The  compact design provides performance when the rail space on top of your gun  is limited, while the ergonomic controls allow shooters to make adjustments without taking their eyes from their target.

The EON 1x35 Red Dot’s objective lens has an increased field of view for even faster target acquisition. The reticle consists of a single 2-MOA dot that is surrounded by an illuminated circle. The EON 1x35 has three color settings, red, green, and blue, that make it a great option for almost any light condition. The sight also comes with a forward-canted Picatinny mount for installation on a wide variety of firearms.

The EON 1x20 Red Dot and EON 1x35 Red Dot will both be available exclusively through Rural King, America’s Farm and Home Store. More information on these red dot sights and other Viridian products is available at or at
