Firefield is selling a new miniature reflex sight that is weather resistant and affordably priced. Called the Impact Mini Reflext Sight, this unit is a 1x optic with a 5 MOA reticle. According to the company, the reticle can be adjusted to one of five different brightness settings.
Firefield constructed the body of 6061-T6 aluminum and claims the unit is shockproof. The sight has an IP55 weather resistance rating. IP ratings are levels of intrusion protection with the first number indicating solid particle protection and the second number referring to water penetration. In this case, the IP55 rating indicates that the unit is “dust protected” and resists spraying of water from jets.
A single CR1632 battery will operate the unit for about 40 hours. The sight mounts onto Weaver or Picatinny rails and comes with both low profile and co-witness height mounts. A 45˚ mount is also included to be used as an alternate to a magnifying optic that would be mounted in the 12 o’clock position. The unit weighs about one ounce. Even with all of the mounts, the sight has a suggested retail price of only $59.99.
Firefield recently added an Impulse 1×30 red dot sight with an integral laser to its line of budget optics. Click here for more information on that one.
