With a well-deserved reputation for lightweight quality and durability, the Leupold DeltaPoint Pro reflex sight was made even more versatile in mid-2020 by the Oregon-based optics maker. The new NV model, in either black or FDE, is optimized for use with even the most advanced white phosphor night-vision systems. Its 2.5-m.o.a. reticle has 10 brightness settings, compared to the base model’s eight, and two new night-vision-compatible settings allow users to fine-tune the red-dot to their particular low-light systems. Running on one easy-to-install CR2032 battery (included), the waterproof and fogproof NV’s Motion Sensor Technology extends battery life by entering standby mode after five minutes of inactivity. Price: $585. Contact: Leupold & Stevens; (800) 538-7653; leupold.com.
