Leupold DeltaPoint Micro Red Dot Sight for Pistols: New for 2021

Leupold launches its new DeltaPoint Micro Red Dot sight, a low-profile red dot sight designed specifically for concealed carry and personal defense firearms.

Leupold & Stevens, Inc. announced the launch of the new DeltaPoint Micro, a fully enclosed, low-profile red dot sight designed specifically for concealed carry and personal defense firearms.

Featuring a compact and revolutionary new design that is easy to conceal, the DPMicro mounts directly to the rear sight dovetail and sits at the same height as factory iron sights.

The red dot aligns with the front sight, delivering rapid target acquisition and improved accuracy.

Launch-day models will fit all non-MOS Glock models and the Smith & Wesson M&P line of pistols.

“As our team designed the DeltaPoint Micro, they knew it needed to be three things: low-profile, easy to use, and tough-as-nails,” said Tim Lesser, Vice President of Product Development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “It delivers on all counts. No red dot on the market is more compact; its low height to bore replicates the same sight plane that iron-sight shooters are used to, allowing for intuitive target acquisition; and it delivers the legendarily rugged performance that Leupold consumers expect.”


The DeltaPoint Micro is 2.25 inches in length and 1.25 inches in height– while weighing in at just 1.1 ounces. DiamondCoat II scratch-resistant lenses ensure it stands up to the roughest conditions, and a fully enclosed LED provides complete protection from the elements–as well as dirt and debris.

The DP-Micro features Leupold’s Professional-Grade Optical System, which provides unmatched light transmission, industry-leading glare reduction for a clear image in harsh, direct light, and the resolution and clarity that professional guides and shooters demand in the field. Crystal-clear lenses eliminate distortion and color inconsistency. The red dot mounts quickly and easily to the factory rear sight dovetail for co-witnessing the front sight, and eliminating the need for aftermarket rear iron sights.

The CR1632 battery required for the DP-Micro will survive 3.5 years of constant runtime on a medium brightness setting. It is supported by Leupold’s Motion Sensor Technology, which puts the sight into sleep mode to prevent battery drain after five minutes of inactivity, and reactivates the sight upon movement.

In the case of battery failure, the DP-Micro serves as its own backup sight.


“If the battery dies or you experience some sort of failure, the DeltaPoint Micro can be used like a ghost ring sight,” said John Snodgrass, Tactical Product Line Manager for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “By putting your front sight in the bottom-third of the window and using the two milled holes on the back to align with the front sight, you’ll still be able to get on target fast, without adjusting grip or presentation. When it comes to personal protection, you don’t want to leave anything to chance– and the DP-Micro doesn’t.”

The DeltaPoint Micro is waterproof, fogproof, and guaranteed to perform for life. It is designed, machined, and assembled in the United States at Leupold’s Beaverton, Ore., factory.
