EAA MC P35 OPS Optic: Red Dots, Anyone?

Handguns with red dots are the gold standard for many defensive shooters, making optics-ready platforms like the EAA MC P35 OPS popular. If you want a gun that’s not just optics-ready, but has a red dot sight already mounted to it, there’s the EAA MC P35 OPS Optic. This is a handgun that’s red-dot ready to shoot, right out of the box.

Chase Duffey, National Sales & Import Manager at EAA Corporation, said:

When we were looking at how to make the MC P35 OPS more useful and offer the customer something that they really wanted directly from the factory, a light and bright red dot that uses a mounting pattern that’s almost universally accepted without any sort of adapter plate was the overwhelming choice. Now, if the customer wants to keep it as is from the factory or if they want to accessorize it with lots of commercially available products at their local shop, they have every option right out of the box.
