Springfield Armory recently introduced its new line of red-dot optics under the Hex line, which features a micro red dot Wasp and full-size Dragonfly. 

The Hex Wasp features a low profile design ideal for use with handguns, and is the featured optic on Springfield's new Hellcat RDP. The sight can be direct mounted to a slide with the Springfield Micro footprint and features a 3.5-MOA red dot. It is IPX7 waterproof rated and features a 2-year run time, or 65,000 hours of usage. It has an "always on" construction with daylight auto adjustment. It retails for $299. 

The second optic to be introduced is the Dragonfly, which is a full-size red dot that utilizes Springfield's standard footprint. It also features a 3.5-MOA red dot with aluminum construction and direct mounting. The Dragonfly can be powered on or off with the push of a button and features different brightness levels. It has a 3-year runtime and lasts over 100,000 hours on the lowest power setting. MSRP is $249.
