Preview: Bushnell RXS-100 Reflex Sight

posted on February 3, 2021

Bushnell expanded its lineup of affordable red-dot optics with the RXS-100, one of the most budget-friendly optics on the market. The new reflex sight is set to retail under $100, all while offering a host of features demanded by today’s optic-focused consumers.

“With the introduction of the RXS-100, we are able to offer users a reliable, affordable reflex sight that has all of the features they requested for under $100,” said Derek Osburn, director of optics for Vista Outdoor. “The RXS-100 stands out from other red dots currently on the market by providing a clear, bright dot that has been designed to withstand the harsh recoil experienced when slide-mounted on pistols. We are excited to be able to bring this combination of quality and value to the reflex market and continue Bushnell’s long-standing legacy of purpose-built products.”

Built with an industry-standard Leupold DeltaPoint Pro footprint, the Bushnell RXS-100 reflex sight is compatible with milled handgun slides when used with a DeltaPoint Pro mounting plate, and thanks to the included riser, the optic can also be mounted as a light, compact sighting system for rifles and shotguns, too, thanks to its compatibility with Weaver-style optic mounts.

Each Bushnell RXS-100 is constructed with a point-source LED system that produces a 4-MOA dot, as opposed to the masked LED designs typically found on budget-priced red-dot optics. The end result of this is a sharp, clear dot that gives you the ability to be more precise while taking advantage of the quick, intuitive aiming point. The sight is built with a durable aluminum housing complete with an oversized hood that protects the lens from impact and scratching. The lens itself is treated with True Tone coatings designed to enhance light transmission.

To give you easier access for battery changes, the Bushnell RXS-100 red-dot sight is outfitted with a side-loading battery door. A single CR2032 battery powers the sight, and the system includes a 12-hour automatic shut-off timer designed to extend battery life. You’ll also find windage and elevation adjustment detents on the optic, giving you the ability to adjust your point of aim 1 MOA with every click. The sight also includes tools for mounting and sight adjustment, as well as a protective cover, lens-cleaning cloth and a CR2032 battery that’ll get you into action straight from the box.

Suggested retail pricing on the Bushnell RXS-100 reflex sight is $99.99. For more information, visit
