    Steiner Introduces the New MPS (Micro Pistol Sight)

    Sliding right on into the end of the year, the folks over at Steiner Optics have just released a brand new pistol red dot sight – the MPS (Micro Pistol Sight). The all-metal enclosed red dot sight features battle-proven durability and mil-spec ruggedness along with a load of features that make it suitable for the most extreme situations in a compact and lightweight package.

    Manufactured in Germany, the MPS is the latest red dot optic from Steiner. The MPS features 1x magnification, 3.3-MOA dot, and remains parallax-free from 10 meters out to 150 meters. The Micro Pistol Sight is compact featuring a 20x16mm objective lens and a 21x16mm ocular lens. Weighing in at 2.05-ounces, the Micro Pistol Sight isn’t the most lightweight red dot optic on the market but it is the lightest enclosed pistol mounted red dot sight to hit the market thus far (the SIG Romeo 2 is 2.1 ounces as is the Aimpoint ACRO P-1). Here are some other specifications for the Steiner MPS as laid out in their documentation on the new red dot sight:

    The MPS will also feature several different mounting options to fit a variety of pistols and even rifles. The MPS is compatible with most optics-ready pistols and baseplate adapters on the market according to Steiner’s documentation for the Micro Pistol Sight. One of the main features that Steiner is advertising as a benefit of the MPS is its rugged durability due to its all-metal construction, completely sealed-in emitter, enhanced sidewalls, and a recessed window with a metal hood to block objects from reaching the front lens. Another feature that I noticed that isn’t pointed out in the documentation is the top-mounted battery tray which is useful for swapping out batteries without having to remove the optic from the pistol and inevitably having to re-zero it.

    So far everything I’ve seen about the Steiner MPS makes it out to be one of the most durable pistol-mounted red dot sights on the market. I will be interested to see how it holds up to some durability tests and also to see how the market reacts to the fact that the MPS will be operating off of a CR1632 instead of a CR2032 like most other red dots on the market.
