Bushnell is offering two new micro red-dot pistol sights that fit the popular Shield footprint and come in at an excellent price point. The RXC-200 and RXU-200, at $200 each, are 23.5 and 19.5 mm tall overall, respectively.

Both feature a 7075-T6 aluminum housing, waterproof construction, a backup rear dovetail that can be aligned with the host pistol’s front sight and a 6-m.o.a. auto-adjusting dot with 50,000 hours of run time in indoor ambient conditions from a CR2032 battery. The RXC-200’s dot lies 15 mm off the deck, while the lower-profile RXU-200’s dot sits at 11 mm.
