Guns & Ammo TV: TruGlo Ignite Red Dots

The TruGlo Ignite series includes two affordable red dots ready for your AR-15: Ignite 30mm and Mini Red Dot. Authors James Tarr and Tom Beckstrand test them on a Springfield Armory Saint Victor rifle and pistol in 5.56 NATO to learn more about the features that come at an affordable price.

Both optics sport a 2-MOA dot size and operate from easy-to-find AAA batteries, and a 4-hour shutoff function is included to save battery life. Using Hornady Frontier 62-grain FMJ ammunition, Beckstrand and Tarr run a simple three-shot drill showing these optics are quick at target acquisition and transitions. The TruGlo Ignite series red dots are ideal for the new shooter or one on a budget, yet they prove to withstand the abuse from everyday life to keep you on target.
