Hawke Optics has released a new line of micro red dot sights with the Endurance line. The Endurance red-dot sight is available in two versions with either a 25 mm or 30 mm objective lens size. The 25 mm objective version has a length of 2.8” and weight of 6.5 oz., while the slightly larger 30 mm version is 3.5” long and weighs 8.5 oz.

Both versions of the Endurance have a body constructed of aluminum and feature a 25-layer multi-coated front lens. Both also have no optical zoom through the sight picture. The Endurance is parallax free from 10 yds. and out. The aiming point of the Endurance is a single 3 MOA red dot.   

The Endurance has adjustment buttons for brightness located on the top of the optic body just in front of the elevation adjustment cap. Eight stages of adjustment are available to control the brightness of the center dot. The Endurance line also features a built-in stand-by mode, causing the optic will shut off if no movement is detected for 5 minutes.

The battery compartment and windage adjustment cap are located on the left side of the optic body. The Endurance is powered by a single CR2032 battery. Adjustment values for the windage and elevation knobs are 1 MOA, or 1” of adjustment at 100 yds. per click of the knob.

The adjustment knobs are protected with screw-on caps. The Endurance ships with two quick-detach Picatinny rail compatible mounts, one high and the other low. A high mount is ideal for co-witnessing with AR platform iron sights and has a quick-detach lever. The low mount is meant for use on shotguns and pistols and uses a hex nut.

The Endurance comes with a two-year warranty from Hawke against defects, excluding damage from use or excessive wear. The 25 mm objective model of the Endurance has a suggested retail price of $189, while the 30 mm version is $209.
