(MANSFIELD, TEXAS 2017/12/15) – Sightmark is proud to announce the release of the latest generation of Ultra Shot reflex sights, ripe with upgrades and a fresh new design. With three available models; R, A and M-Spec, Sightmark has created resilient close-range optics perfect for everything from target shooting to law enforcement and military operations on both AR platform firearms and shotguns. All RAM series sights are now powered by a CR123A battery, which provides superior battery life (200-2,000 hours) over other red dots and reflex sights. A wide lens quickens target acquisition while helping to maintain a wide FOV. Quick-detach models include an improved QD lever allowing a low profile to keep the sights from snagging on gear or unlatching during the heat of the moment.
Ideal for target shooting and hunting, the Ultra Shot R-Spec (SM26031), or Range Spec, features four reticle options with red or green illumination and a new low battery indication which prompts the reticle to blink when the battery is low. The R-Spec boasts 10 brightness levels, from low light to sunny outdoors, and slotted windage and elevation adjustments, able to be changed with a flathead or common tool.
The new aluminum-constructed Ultra Shot A-Spec (SM26032), or Advanced Spec model, retains many of the same updates found in the R-Spec, but adds six night vision settings, allowing the sight to be used in conjunction with night vision devices. Shockproof up to 8 ft., the R-Spec is shielded by a sturdy aluminum alloy housing and protective aluminum shield.
The most durable and advanced sights in the Ultra Shot line, the new M-Spec FMS (SM26035) and M-Spec LQD (SM26034) were designed for law enforcement, hunting and competition shooting scenarios. Waterproof up to 40 ft. and able to withstand up to .50 BMG caliber recoil, M-Specs feature motion-sensing activation (5-minute shutoff with motion activation, 12-hour auto-off) to conserve battery life but still keep the optics ready for when they need to be. These cutting-edge reflex sights have an integrated retractable sunshade that reduces lens glare and protects the optics during rain or snow.
(MANSFIELD, TEXAS 2017/12/06) – Joining an established line of reflex sights and red dots, the highly-anticipated Mini Shot M-Spec FMS (SM26043) from Sightmark is finally here. This all-purpose reflex sight is Sightmark’s most compact yet and utilizes an included low-profile mount or AR riser mount to fit perfectly on a variety of firearms, including pistols, shotguns, ARs and AKs. Though it was designed specifically for law enforcement, the Mini Shot M-Spec is also ideal for competition shooting, hunting and home defense applications.
The Mini Shot M-Spec’s extremely low power consumption provides 300-30,000 hours of battery life, depending on power setting, from a single CR1632 battery. 100% waterproof, this compact reflex sight’s aluminum housing with steel protective shield makes it one of the most durable reflex sights on the market. But the M-Spec wasn’t just designed to be rugged, it is also incredibly user-friendly due to ambidextrous digital switch controls that allow both left- and right-handed shooters to turn on its 3 MOA reticle. Forget the special tools, as windage and elevation adjustments can be made at the click of a button. The Mini Shot’s versatility doesn’t end with the firearm it can be mounted to, either—10 brightness levels allow the sight to be used anywhere from extremely low-light situations to bright sunny conditions.
Recoil rated up to .375 H&H, this unique sight boasts a 12-hour auto shut-off feature to help save battery. With an MSRP of $249.99, the Mini Shot is a no-brainer for shooters looking for a tough, small-sized reflex sight. The Mini Shot M-Spec FMS includes rubber cover, low profile fixed mount, AR riser fixed mount, battery and manual.
(MANSFIELD, TEXAS 2017/12/06) Delivering tough-to-beat accuracy and a crisp, wide field of view, the new Sightmark Element 1×30 (SM26040) is an update to the popular Tactical Red Dot Sight (SM13041). Enhancements include a smaller, more precise 2-MOA red dot, improved brightness settings and two night vision compatibility modes.
Sightmark has integrated improvements based on customer suggestions and added more of their own, including a longer range of adjustment for both windage and elevation, battery life (up to 15,000 hours) and an improved IP67 waterproof rating. Notably, the Elements’ windage and elevation caps can now be flipped and used as tools for making adjustments.
Shipping with a reliable cantilever mount, the Element 1×30 absolute co-witness height fits all magnifiers set up on the Aimpoint T1 mounting system, allowing shooters to engage targets at further distances. The Sightmark Element 1×30 red dot sight includes flip-up lens covers, a manual and a CR2032 battery in the box.
(MANSFIELD, TEXAS 2017/11/16) – Nobody likes taking the time to sight-in their rifle. Wasted time and ammo, as well as frustration when fine-tuning, are just a few of the reasons why laser in-chamber boresights are becoming increasingly popular. Perhaps even more popular is the 6.5 Creedmoor rifle cartridge, which is dominating the long-range precision shooting and hunting game. Lucky for those who stay on the forefront of popular cartridges, Sightmark is proud to announce a 6.5 Creedmoor laser boresight (SM39020) that can also be used for .22-250 chambered rifles.
The quickest way to reliably zero your 6.5 Creedmoor or .22-250 firearm, this laser boresight is inserted into your rifle like a standard cartridge. A red laser shines through the tip of the boresight and out the barrel, allowing shooters to easily align their reticle to the boresight and get on paper for fine adjustments.
The boresight’s brass construction makes it durable and improves chambering and ejection. Since it is the size of a standard cartridge, the Sightmark 6.5 Creedmoor Laser Boresight is easily packed for travel and is extremely lightweight. The boresight is powered by 2x AG5 batteries and includes the appropriate batteries and a carrying case.
(MANSFIELD, TEXAS 2017/11/15) – Sightmark is proud to announce the new Wolfhound 6×44 Mini Shot M-Spec Kit. Military-inspired, these two optics work together to keep shooters on target no matter the situation. Designed for the MSR platform, the Sightmark Wolfhound reticle is ballistically matched to .223, 55- and 62-grain ammunition. Etched into its top-tier glass lens, the Wolfhound’s 6×44 horseshoe reticle features a 7.5 MOA outer ring for flawless close-range shooting, while its .5 MOA central dot and holdovers at 300 to 900 yards allow the shooter to take precise long-range shots.
Included with the Wolfhound 6×44 is Sightmark’s new Mini Shot M-Spec. Built with a high-strength protective steel shield and 100% waterproof aluminum body, the M-Spec Mini Shot is a battle-tested optic able to withstand any tactical situation thrown its way. Ideal for target shooting and law enforcement applications, the crisp 3 MOA red dot reticle has up to a 30,000-hour battery life with a 12-hour auto shutoff, giving shooters even more time at the range. The Mini Shot’s ability to mount on the Wolfhound 6×44’s top Picatinnyy rail, gives shooters the option for close range operations and long-range precision shooting, making them effective at all distances. Included in the kit is a Wolfhound rubber lens cover, honeycomb filter, Mini Shot M-Spec rubber cover, Mini Shot low profile fixed mount, Mini Shot AR riser fixed and batteries for both units.
(MANSFIELD, TEXAS 2017/10/20) – Sightmark is proud to introduce the highly-anticipated Photon RT. Successor to the Photon XT, one of the most popular night vision scopes ever, the new Photon RT series of digital night vision riflescopes improves upon the XT generation with an upgraded core and new, user-friendly features while maintaining the same simplicity and durability that made the Photon XT line so successful. The Photon RT series consists of 4 models: Photon RT 4.5x42S (SM18015), Photon RT 4.5×42 (SM18016), Photon RT 6x50S (SM18017) and Photon RT 6×50 (SM18018).

Serious hunters are sure to appreciate integrated built-in video recording, with sound capabilities, and 2x digital zoom. Ideal for hog and predator hunting at any hour, Photon RT series digital night vision riflescopes also feature a power input compatible with powerbanks via microUSB and work with the Pulsar Stream Vision app to allow remote viewing on phones and other smart devices.
While all Photons come standard with a built-in IR illuminator, dedicated hunters will welcome the invisible 940nm IR illuminator, standard on non-‘S’ models; this IR light does not produce a red glow when viewed directly. A side weaver rail on the Photon allows shooters to attach additional accessories or IR lights to increase performance and application uses. Continuing to keep the user in mind, Photon RTs also boasts 6 reticle options, one-shot zeroing, IP55 water-resistant protection and a recoil rating up to .375.
