The micro reflex sight market is getting broader with the introduction of the Micro Reflex Sight(MRS) from Steiner Optics. This low profile sight weighs only 70 grams. Steiner, which is based in Germany, is well known for the quality of their optics especially their binoculars. Steiner is now part of the Beretta Holding family of brands.
From their release:
The MRS is perfect for engaging moving targets, CQB encounters and rapid-fire tactical situations. Its unlimited eye relief allows the operator to engage targets with both eyes open for wide peripheral vision and greater situational awareness.
“The hard anodized MRS is nearly indestructible – ideal for tactical ops, patrol rifles, home defense and competitive applications,” says Tom Frane, VP Sales, Marketing and Business Development. “In CQB situations where quick reaction and accurate shot placement is vital, the MRS improves effectiveness and confidence for successful engagement.”
With its low profile, the MRS balances nicely on any shooting platform; and the 3 MOA red dot is easy to find and won’t obscure targets at longer distances. It’s fully adjustable for windage and elevation with 1 MOA click and 30 clicks of adjustment in either direction. The red dot can be set for automatic illumination control or manually adjusted through three brightness levels.
The integrated screw mount attaches easily to any MIL-STD 1913 rail or other sight platform. The MRS is powered by one CR1632 battery, delivering up to 550 hours of reliable operation; and the battery cap is waterproof and the sight is submersible to 1 ATM or 10 meters.
