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.
EAA provides details of the optics-included pistol:
EAA’s MC P35 OPS Optic by Girsan pay homage to one of the most widely used handguns in the world. The all-steel construction, short recoil operated MC P35 OPS Optic offers a wealth of features for both the average shooter and competitive shooter including an extended beavertail, fiber optic front sight, G10 grips, straight clean-break trigger, beveled magwell & windage/elevation adjustable rear sight, no magazine disconnect, an integrated accessory rail, and it comes with an EAA FAR-DOT sight factory installed. The red dot is directly mounted to the pistol and does not require an adaptor plate for any optics that feature the RMS/RMSc footprint and it includes unique modifications for Holosun optics, making it one of the most universal patterns for compact pistol designs.
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.
