SHOT Show 2018: Bushnell's New Tac Optics Red Dot Sights

Bushnell has introduced three new Tac Optics red dot sights for 2018 including the Mini Cannon, Big D(ot)  and LIL P(rism). The Mini Cannon provides four reticle patterns that can be switched with the press of a while maintaining zero. The Big D(ot) is anything but small with its large 37mm objective for a wide open view of the target area.

Of the three, it was the LIL P(rism), shown here, that caught my attention because of it's exceptionally small size. At just 2.5" long and weighing in at just 8 oz.,  it's one of the most compact models available. It's hard to get a sense of size from the photo without any other objects for perspective. However, the quarter-sized battery housing on the top right side almost overwhelms the rest of the optic. What surprised me most was how, despite the tiny objective, the Lil P's housing still seemed to disappear around the bright red dot when pointed down range on a rifle. The BDC reticle is .5 MOA click adjustable for height and windage. 

All three of these new Bushnell Tac Optics provide bright, easy to see dots with adjustable brightness settings which are clearly visible from daylight to low light conditions. Working battery life expectancy ranges from 30,000 to 50,000 hours, depending on the model. As with all Bushnell optics, these red dots are designed to be shock and water resistant and should start shipping early in 2018. Suggested Retail: $358.45  to $359.95
