SHOT Show 2021 New Red Dot Sights
⊕HAWKE Optics New Red Dot And Reflex Sights
Hawke, a sporting optics company headquartered in the United Kingdom, expanded into red dots ARs, hunting firearms, and handguns. Here are the goods.
The Endurance sights have a 3 MOA red dot with eight-stage digital brightness controls, so you can match lighting and shooting conditions. The sights come in a 25mm and 30mm body size and both have 25 layer multi-coated optics for ultimate clarity and are parallax-free from 10 yards. Endurance Red Dots are supplied with 2 Weaver-style bases: a low mount ideal for shotguns and pistols, and a quick-detach high mount for co-witnessing AR iron sights.
Hawke also added two new models of Reflex sights. Like other Hawke red dot sights, these are a perfect fit for your handguns, shotguns, and AR-pattern rifles and pistols. These Reflex sights have been designed with the smaller 3 MOA red dot, with the Micro Reflex Dot being compatible with optics-ready pistols.

⊕Holosun Announces X2 Series Pistol Optics
Here’s another little Holosun optic that might be seen at SHOT Show 2021. The X2 Series is adapted from the Holosun 2018-2019 L/M (Law Enforcement Model) pistol optics. This series has incorporated a Lock Mode with a new button configuration for easier control of settings and prevents unwanted setting changes while carrying.

SHOT Show 2021 New Scopes
⊕ATN X-SIGHT LTV 3-9x and 5-15x Digital Rifle Scopes
What if you could get a digital rifle scope that works great during the day, has a night vision mode, can record video when you make that shot of the year, is lightweight, has a low power consumption, and is easy to mount? ATN claims they have all that in their ATN X-Sight LTV Ultra Light Day & Night Vision Rifle Scopes.
You can now turn those images in your sight to HD videos. ATN scopes come with a 4-64 GB Micro SD Card, so you can prove your hunt.
The scopes are also meant to last all day, at least that’s what they tell us. If you’re out on a long hunting trip, you could use your scope continuously for about 10 hours before having to replace the internal lithium-ion battery.
ATN credits the long life to the scopes’ low power ATN Obsidian LT Core.
Bushnell’s got a new spotting scope, with a couple of reticle options.
Two models of the scope are available, one with the TREMOR 4 reticle and the other with the HORUS H322 reticle. Bushnell advises that these reticles are ideal for spotting with any MRAD-based riflescope reticle. The H322 is suited for when real-time measured targeting information is required as well as when you’re looking for robust wind and drop compensation, target range estimation, and follow-up shot spotter communication capabilities.

PA’s latest iteration of the SLx 1x Prism features a green-illuminated reticle.
From Primary Arms:
The SLx 1×20 Prism Scope with ACSS Cyclops reticle is currently one of Primary Arms’ best-selling optics. With a massive eyebox, compact body, and 9.7oz weight, this prism optic is able to recreate the speed and agility of red dot and holographic optics with an etched ACSS reticle.
The benefit of the etched reticle is two-fold, as it usable without batteries and does not blur with an astigmatism. With the all-new green illumination option, customers can now choose between either a red or green reticle depending on their preferences.

Stephanie Kimmell is the firstborn daughter of Missouri's Pecan King, worthy scion of a Vietnam veteran sailor turned mad engineer-orchardist-inventor-genius. With a BA in technical writing, she freelances as a writer and editor. A Zymurgist greatly interested in the decoction of fermented barley and hops, she is in many ways a modern amalgam of Esther Hobart Morris, Rebecca Boone, and Nellie Bly. She hunts, fishes, butchers, and cooks most anything. When not editing or writing, she makes soaps and salves, spins wool, and occasionally makes cheese from cows she milked herself. Kimmell is a driven epistemophilic who loves live music and all sorts of beer.
