Bushnell Rxu 200 Red Dot Sight F

Bushnell added new options to its optics lineup, and the latest micro red-dots to come from the company in 2022 are designed for use on today's optics-ready, concealed-carry handguns. The Bushnell RXC-200 and RXU-200 red-dots share many similar features, but the RXU-200 is an ultra-compact option for those looking to save even more bulk.

Each of these new Bushnell red-dot optics are designed to fit handguns with Shield RMSc optic cuts, and third-party adapter plates can be used to adapt the RXC-200 and RXU-200 to larger footprints, if needed. Both optics are equipped with 6 m.o.a. dots with automatic brightness adjustment that adapts to ambient lighting conditions and minimizes power usage when handguns are stored or holstered. When exposed to typical indoor lighting conditions, the optics have an average runtime of more than 50,000 hours on a single battery. For back-up use, the housing for each red-dot features a rear-sight channel that aligns with a handgun's front sight.

Both the Bushnell RXC-200 and RXU-200 are built with aluminum housings and feature True Tone lens coatings designed to minimize any tinting and ensure optimum light transmission. Each red-dot is IPX7-rated for water-resistance, and the internals are sealed to prevent water ingress in depths of up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. Suggested retail pricing on the new red-dot sights is $199.99. For more information, visit
