Leapers’ UTG brand has announced the release of new low-cost reflex sight. The new sights, dubbed the “3.9′” (UTG does not publish why its named after a length, I can only suppose its 3.9 inches long) feature a fully adjustable green or red dot reticle offered in either just a dot or a circle dot.
The optics are a forward-set glass architecture, similar to many handgun dot sights. The emitter is buried in the rear, projected up onto the primary glass sitting at the front of the optic. UTG states they have reinforced windage and elevation adjustment, but for extra measure, an armor cover is included with the optic.
Available reticles are split into two options, a 4 MOA dot model and a 4 MOA encircled by a 58 MOA ring model. Both feature the full red and green illumination with fine-tunable brightness settings. The reticles are set at the absolute co-witness level for iron sight lovers.
Mounting is via a single Picatinny rail adapter. Construction is over “aircraft grade aluminum” which is the typical hard-coat black anodized. The optic is “Built on True Strength Platform, Shockproof, Fogproof, and Rainproof.”
Retail pricing for both the dot and circle-dot model is set a hair under $100, at $99.97. Street pricing will likely be slightly less, as there is not much room below $100 to go.
