Hartman MH1 Reflex Sight | SHOT 2017

Designed as the next step in reflex sights by retired Lt. Col. Mikey Hartman, the new MH1 incorporates some forward-thinking features that Mikey felt should be on a reflex sight based on 20 years as the commander of the IDF’s Marksmanship and Sharpshooting School. He not only trained over half a million soldiers, but also founded the school and wrote much of the training doctrine in use by the IDF. The new reticle and the ability to program the sight set it apart from the others on the market.

    Colonel Hartman is brilliant! His sight makes so much sense. I’m definitely in for one.

    I like it. I want to see one up close and handle it a bit. On a rifle of course. Features sound really useful. It seems that a lot of thought went into the design of this sight. Good deal.

    Or you can just buy an Aimpoint and have it switeched ON all of the time…

    Price?

    Seems a bit intricate. The more there is to malfunction, the more chance something ‘will’. He never said how long it would last with both batteries before completely dead. My T1/H1 Aimpoints go 50,000 hours. I don’t need another gadget to hang on an already overloaded rifle, ie, the remote control band on the handguard. Seems redundant and wasteful of space, as well as being potentially in the way. It (sight) seems a bit large and clunky, as well. I do like the cross hair sights. Some may go in for the added complexity and questionably hi-tech of a sight you can plug into your computer, but not everything ‘needs’ to plug into a USB. Gimmicky idea that will compete head-to-head with some pretty stiff competition. I applaud his enthusiasm, it just isn’t for me. Others may find it useful. Lastly, and I know this is a petty point, I find it difficult to reconcile retired Lt. Col. with “Mickey”. All I could think about is the old TV commercial, “Give it to Mickey, he’ll eat anything”. Difficult to take him seriously, at least on first impression, subconscious level. I stopped going by “Davey” when I was 12.

    I would need to look at the programming API, but this could be interesting. As part of your equipment prep you would choose a set of sights which would work for the expected situation. Then load the sights into the optic. A full size computer wouldn’t be necessary; a phone or Pi would work.
