First Look: Steiner Micro Pistol Sight
The ruggedness and durability of Steiner optics have been tested and proven on battlefields all around the world. Now with the new MPS (Micro Pistol Sight) that same tough as nails reputation is available in a pistol red-dot optic. The MPS is a continuation of the efforts of Steiner to provide optics and imaging solutions for all defense and tactical applications and is designed to endure the most rigorous needs of law enforcement and military operations.
The MPS is compatible with most optic-ready pistols and baseplate adapters on the market today. The sight has a metal hood that blocks objects from reaching the front lens, which combined with all-metal construction, enhanced sidewalls and recessed window work together to a make this one of the toughest pistol sights ever created. The sight window is completely sealed and nitrogen filled protecting the roof-mounted 3.3 MOA emitter from weather and water down to 10 meters. The top-mounted battery compartment ensures quick and easy battery swaps without removing the optic and a low sight window close to the slide.
Weighing just 2.05 ounces, the MPS is compact and lightweight sight with a robust feature set which includes six day and two night vision brightness levels, user-selectable auto-off and 13,000 hours of battery life when set on medium brightness. The true 1X magnification and Steiner quality glass offer an undistorted image for both eyes open operation and complete situational awareness as you shoot.
