A number of features were added for the US market such as MIL adjustment, 1.5 inch sight height, 1913 rail mounting interface and markings in English.
The PSU offers a true 1x magnification and at 4x magnification it covers 6.5 degree field of view. It’s between the Trijicon ACOG 4×32′s 7-deg and ELCAN’s 6-deg FOV. The PSU also features a large ocular lens size with a large 8mm exit pupil and a consistent 2.75 inch of eye relief. Two QD levers are included with it’s 1913 Picatinny mount.
The WOLF PSU 1x/4x32mm sight is 7.4 inch in length and it weights 24.6 ounces. The sight housing is machined from solid aluminum alloy and it’s shock and water proof. The illuminated reticle is power by a single common CR2032 lithium 3V battery. There are 7 intensity settings for the reticle illumination. Since the reticle is etched into the glass, the sight will work without battery.
