Riton Optics X3 Tactix PRD
Putting a red dot optic on your handgun is becoming more prevalent every year. Manfactuacters are producing more models of guns with slide cuts for optics, and optic companies are creating new handgun red dots to meet the growing market such as the new X3 Tactix PRD from Riton Optics.
The X3 Tactix PRD features an ultra-precise 3 MOA dot for use on pistols or rifles. Made from 6061 T6 aircraft-grade aluminum and fully multi-coated, HD lenses, this optic is also waterproof and shockproof up to 800Gs of impact.
The X3 Tactix PRD incorporates a top-loaded battery feature. This design allows the user to replace the battery without having to remove the optic from the firearm, saving the end-user from re-zeroing with each battery change. The pistol red dot utilizes one CR2032; according to Riton this allows for a battery life of over 40,000 hours with six levels of brightness and an auto shut off after four hours.
The X3 Tactix PRD is compatible with night vision optics. The ability to work with night vision like the PVS-14 makes it ideal for night pistol shooting.
The X3 Tactix PRD comes standard with a low rail mount that clamps to a Picatinny rail. Also included are one base plate, protective cover, and hex wrench. MSRP is $299.99
