Shield Sights RMSx Red-Dot Competition Sight: First Look

Shield Sights has announced the RMSx red-dot will replace the original RMS as the new dedicated competition sight.

Shield Sights RMSx Red-Dot Competition Sight: First Look

With competitive shooting being at the core of Shield Sights foundation, the Sheild Sights RMSx pulls from the experience of two generations of international competitive pistol shooting experience. The RMSx features a larger viewing window with a distinctive housing and parallax-free and an all-new hard dip coated (HDC) polymer lens with a 5H hardness rating. The RMSx shares the same Shield footprint that can be found cut into the slide of many popular handguns and matches the entire RMS and SMS line of optics. The RMSx takes advantage of updated LED and electronic technology that produces increased reliability and longer battery life over a wide variety of conditions.

“Shield Sights started over 25 years ago by developing and manufacturing red dot sights specifically for the Competitive shooter. Over the years we have learned the competitive environment presents a completely different set of variables than are commonly found in other applications,” said James White, CEO Shield Sights “We feel the RMSx provides a perfect balance of features that will meet the needs of the most discerning competitive shooters.”
