SIG AIR Reflex Sight: Airsoft Hits the 21st Century and Trainers Rejoice
SIG SAUER has introduced a new SIG AIR Reflex Sight perfect for training shooters new to red dots. They make fast and accurate target acquisition easy. With an MSRP of $59.99, it makes quality training affordable.
I got to shoot this sight on the ProForce M18 airsoft pistol at SIG’s SHOT show range day. It is simple but highly functional. in the bright daylight of Las Vegas the dot was clear and precisely accurate. For new red dot shooters, high repetition training the draw and presentation is crucial. Airsoft can reduce the cost to pennies a round and bring the training range into garages and basements with absolute safety.
Designed to fit the SIG AIR M17 pellet pistol and ProForce M17 and M18 airsoft pistols, this low profile 1x23mm reflex sight features a wide field of view and 3 MOA red dot. The manual brightness control, located on the front of the sight, has six illumination intensity settings making it easy to see the red dot in all lighting conditions. The sight features easy to use windage and elevation adjustments, and the lightweight aluminum housing and shock-proof design ensure durability.
“We have seen strong demand for reflex sights on our SIG AIR pistols,” said Matt Handy, Director, SIG AIR. “With an increasing number of law enforcement and recreational shooters now using red dot sights, our new SIG AIR Reflex Sight delivers rapid target acquisition for those training with our SIG M17 pellet and airsoft pistols. The sight is also designed to fit future SIG AIR pistols.”
The SIG AIR Reflex Sight comes with a 1CR20 32 battery and two optic mount plates – one for airguns and one for airsoft.
