Product Preview: Sightmark Mini Shot M-Spec LQD Reflex Sight

posted on August 2, 2019

A compact but durable quick-detach reflex sight, the Mini Shot M-Spec LQD from Sightmark is designed to accommodate a multitude of applications and host firearms. Featuring an unmagnified 3-m.o.a. red-dot reticle with 10 brightness settings, the unit ships with both a riser to provide co-witness when installed aboard a flattop AR and a low-profile mount for use with shotguns or bolt-action rifles, and is compatible with optic-ready pistols such as S&W’s M&P Core and Glock’s MOS lines. Built of 6061-T6 aluminum with a steel hood to protect the 21x15 mm objective lens, the $299 Mini Shot M-Spec LQD is highly energy efficient—one CR1632 battery can provide up to 30,000 hours of operation.
