Insight Tech-Gear, the world’s leading provider of tactical lasers, illuminators and thermal imaging equipment, announced that the new MRDS Mini Red Dot Sight has been selected as an Editors’ Choice Award by the editors of On Target magazine. The MRDS, a lightweight, ruggedized reflex sight that mounts to many existing optics as well as MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny and Weaver-style rails, was selected based on the improved durability and features compared to similar products in the market.
“The MRDS was born from the U.S. Military’s requirement for a reflex sight that was significantly more durable than earlier versions. The specification calls for a sight that can survive environmental extremes, handles punishing recoil across a range of military arms and can survive the rigors of combat conditions. Insight’s MRDS does that and more,” said Ben Battles, editor of On Target. “On top of the amazing durability of the MRDS, Insight added features that appeal to any level of operator. The lightweight design, the 1 MOA positive click windage and elevation adjustments, the hard off, the auto and manual dot intensity adjustment – and particularly the top load batter feature – clearly make the MRDS an Editors’ Choice.”
“We are extremely pleased that the Insight Tech-Gear MRDS has been selected as an Editors’ Choice by the editors of On Target magazine. Hundreds of thousands for consumers, as well as dealers, rely on On Target magazine for the latest information on new gear to help them make the right purchasing decisions which is why On Target has become one of the most trusted resources for the gun buying public,” said Devin Standard, executive director for Insight Tech-Gear.
