Did Shield Sights know it was my birthday today? I don’t think so but a nice package showed up today from them. I was intrigued when I opened it. I have to say I’ve never received a new product with a wax seal. Nice touch!
Inside the box was their new RMSx – Reflex Mini-Sight XL Lens. This new sight is geared toward competition shooters, which I am not. But my first thought was to compare it to the Trijicon SRO which is a sight with a bigger window. But the two are completely different as you can see in my comparison pics below.
My plan is to mount this on my Glock 34 MOS and review it but I’ll need to get a mounting plate before I can do that. So keep an eye out for that coming soon. In the meantime, here are some photos and the press release from Shield Sights.
A sight aimed at the competitive shooter, the RMSx was specifically designed to answer a call from the competitive marketplace for a Shield Sight with a larger lens. The lens is 80% larger than our current Mini-Sight range and is an all new, top of its class, Hard Dip Coated Acrylic lens.
Due to the larger lens, the RMSx will help our shooters to find the dot earlier in many scenarios. Most commonly when entering or exiting shooting areas and be forced to take shots while not in a stable position, allowing for faster first shot times as the shooter is able to find the dot earlier and to decrease shot-to-shot times by allowing the shooter to stay with the dot during recoil.
The RMSx follows tradition at Shield maintaining the famous Shield Footprint, enabling it to be mounted on to any existing mount or slide cut for our Mini-Sights and is meticulously machined to have a sharp, modern look.
The RMSx will be the first sight to be delivered with our new increased efficiency LED and utilises the proven electronics that have enabled our shooters to fire over 70,000 rounds without any reliability issues.
Following the success of the Shield Customizer, the RMSx will be available in 8 colours and will be available in the most common dot sizes: 4MOA and 8MOA
