LONDONDERRY, N.H. - Insight Tech-Gear, the world's leading provider of tactical lasers, illuminators and thermal imaging equipment, has introduced the new MRDS Mini Red Dot Sight designed specifically to meet the demanding operational needs of today's military and law enforcement operators.

The Insight Tech-Gear MRDS is a lightweight, ruggedized reflex sight that mounts to many existing optics as well as MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny and Weaver-style rails utilizing widely available aftermarket mounts.

The MRDS is available in a non-reflective black or tan finish with either a 3.5 MOA or 7.0 MOA dot size and is easily adjustable for elevation or windage with 1 MOA positive click adjustments. The MRDS features an auto adjusting dot intensity but also offers the operator a manual dot intensity adjustment with four (4) brightness settings.

Like many of Insight's products, the MRDS is designed to not only meet but exceed military durability specifications for equipment used by special operations personnel under extreme combat conditions. The lens of the MRDS is made from a lightweight, impact resistant polymer with an anti-reflective coating. Its rugged housing is molded from advanced polymers reducing weight without sacrificing operational durability.

The MRDS has been waterproofed to 66 feet for 2 hours, frozen in ice, drop tested, subjected to a 48-hour salt fog, tested to withstand vibration, submitted to extreme temperature shock and shot on a variety of firearms for thousands of rounds.
