Styrka Introduces New Red Dots

    Styrka Pistol Red Dot

    Minnesota-based Styrka have launched a range of open and tube red dot sights for pistols and carbines. The new Styrka S3 Open Style Red Dot or the Styrka S3 Tube Style Red Dot are available now with MSRPs of $289.95 and $329.95.

    Here’s what Styrka have to say about their new red dots:

    For hunting, tactical applications or recreational shooting, Styrka makes a red dot sight to improve your shooting: the Styrka S3 Open Style Red Dot or the Styrka S3 Tube Style Red Dot.

    The Styrka S3 Open Style Red Dot is a reflex sight and features 1 MOA adjustments, unlimited eye relief and 1X magnification. It is adjustable with ten (10) brightness settings, so the dot’s intensity can be tailored to match surrounding light and environmental conditions. The S3 Red Dot Open Style automatically shuts off after one hour of inactivity to prevent the CR2032 battery from being drained and automatically returns to the brightness setting last used.

    Available in three models, the Styrka S3 Tube Style Red Dot sight features a unique double-lens optical system which, coupled with dot color indexed coatings, virtually eliminates parallax and point-of-aim errors. This red dot is available in a 2.5 MOA red dot model, a 5 MOA red dot and a 5 MOA green dot. All three models have a 21mm objective lens. Constructed of tough, durable 6061-T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum, S3 Red Dots weigh in at less than six ounces and provide true 1X magnification.This reflex sight also includes a riser mount for co-witnessing on most AR platforms and can be installed on most types of firearms with a Picatinny style rail/base. The optic’s body is constructed of 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum alloy for durability and strength.

    With six brightness settings, the S3 Red Dots let the shooter select the best intensity for the environmental conditions. The optic even returns automatically to the last brightness setting used.

    The “Auto Shut Off” automatically switches off your S3 unit after one hour of inactivity to provide long life to the CR2032 battery. Nitrogen purged to prevent internal fogging and 100-percent waterproof, the S3 Red Dot will offer years and years of service despite the rain, sleet, snow and whatever else Mother Nature can throw at you.

    Like all Styrka optics, the S3 Red Dots are covered by the “Styrka Pride” warranty. If you ever have a problem, your S3 Red Dot or other Styrka optic will be fixed or replaced.
