LONDONDERRY, NH-- Insight Tech-Gear, the world's leading provider of tactical lasers, illuminators and thermal imaging equipment, announced it has begun shipping its new MRDS Mini Red Dot Sight.
The MRDS is a lightweight, ruggedized reflex sight that mounts to many existing optics as well as MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny and Weaver-style rails utilizing widely available aftermarket mounts.
The MRDS is available in a non-reflective black or tan finish with either a 3.5 MOA or 7.0 MOA dot size and is easily adjustable for elevation or windage with 1 MOA positive click adjustments. The MRDS features an auto adjusting dot intensity but also offers the operator a manual dot intensity adjustment with four (4) brightness settings.
When it comes to durability, the MRDS is designed to not only meet but exceed military specifications for equipment used by special operations personnel under extreme combat conditions. The lens of the MRDS is made from a lightweight, impact resistant polymer with an anti-reflective coating. Its rugged housing is molded from advanced polymers reducing weight without sacrificing operational durability.
The MRDS has been waterproofed to go 66 feet for 2 hours, frozen in ice, drop tested, subjected to a 48-hour salt fog, tested to withstand vibration, submitted to extreme temperature shock and shot on a variety of firearms for thousands of rounds. It has an operational temperature range of -40o C to 49o C and passes the MIL-STD 810F environmental testing protocols.
Powered by a single 1632 battery that allows the unit to operate for 1-year in Auto mode, the MRDS weighs just 0.85 ounces including battery. The top-load battery compartment design means no loss of zero when changing batteries.
