Mini red-dot sights—especially in a handgun capacity—have grown exponentially in popularity of the past few years. The problem is, they oftentimes cost more than the firearm they’re  mounted to. Whether riding the slide of an optic–ready handgun, or mounted on a rifle or shotgun with an eye towards weight savings, the affordable ($246) new TRU•TEC Micro incorporates the favorite features of the TRU•TEC line in an ultra–lightweight and versatile package size.

With unlimited eye relief, its 3–MOA red-dot reticle is perfectly sized for a precise yet fast sight picture. The 23mm x 17mm multi–coated objective lens provides a clear, bright, non-magnified sight picture edge to edge. Other features include digital push–button brightness controls with 10 brightness settings, an auto–off feature to preserve battery life (one 3V–CR2032 battery is included), locking windage and elevation adjustments and shock and fog–resistance. It is compatible with optic–ready pistol mounts (Eotech, Docter, Insight, Meopta, etc.) and weighs only 1.0 oz. CNC–machined from aircraft–grade aluminum, it has a water–resistant, sealed o–ring design, and includes a Picatinny rail mount and ABS hardshell cover. All told, this optic’s overall value wins it a 2018 On Target Editors’ Choice Award. See it at your dealer, or for more info contact TruGlo; Tel.: (888) 8-TRUGLO; Web: www.truglo.com
