Editors’ Picks 2019: Crimson Trace CTS-1100

posted on April 3, 2019

Crimson Trace, well known for its grip- and accessory-rail-mounted laser sights, has launched a diverse selection of illuminated optics encompassing sporting, tactical and defensive models. The CTS-1100 3.5X Illuminated Battlesight is a new tactical optic designed especially for modern sporting rifles and carbines. This electronic optic utilizes an aircraft-grade-aluminum housing that is shock-, impact-, fog- and vibration-resistant, and features an integrated M1913 Picatinny rail mount for quick mounting and removal. The fixed 3.5X magnification allows for target engagement at close, mid-range and extended distances. Powered by a single CR2032 button cell battery, the hybrid BDC reticle is fully illuminated with 10 illumination settings that can be easily adjusted using the set of control buttons located on the left side of the housing. The Crimson Trace 3.5X Illuminated Battlesight has a suggested retail price of $549, a three-year limited warranty and is included in the company’s Free Batteries For Life program. crimsontrace.com
