Rival Arms, manufacturers of firearm components for do-it-yourself gun enthusiasts, has taken the next move by expanding its offerings to include electro-optics, beginning with the new X1 Red Dot Sight.
 
The X1 is a 3 MOA red dot ideally suited for use on defensive pistols, target pistols, rifles, hunting and defensive shotguns. The base offers an RMR (ruggedized miniature reflex)-compatible mounting system for slides featuring an RMR-optic footprint and the sight includes a mount for quick installation onto any Picatinny rail.
 
Boasting an IPX7 water-resistant rating and a generous 29x17mm multi-coated objective lens, the X1 Red Dot provides several features that make this a reliable and adaptable sight for any mission. Digital push-button brightness controls allow the shooter to quickly select one of 10 brightness settings. Windage and elevation adjustments in 1-MOA/click increments come via a flat-blade driver bit, meaning no specialty tools are required to zero. Automatic motion sensing wake feature and sleep modes extend battery life to ensure the X1 is always ready for action. When a battery replacement is necessary, the battery access is located at the top of the housing, so there is no need to remove the optic or risk losing zero to change a battery.
