Product Description

The SCOUTER Red Dot is the first optical sight to premiere from the SIOPTO line of products. The SCOUTER is a unique original distinguished design by SIOPTO and Strike Industries engineers. This is a precision CQB/CQC aiming solution at a competitive price point that provides functionality needed to operate in austere conditions. The SCOUTER is made from a one-piece sight housing along with the included absolute height mounting base. Both are CNC machined from a solid billet 6061-T6 aluminum alloy providing a rugged, yet aesthetically pleasing HOOD design. No parallax, unlimited eye-relief and a wide 20mm field of view (FOV) to ensure quick target acquisition as well as increasing target transition proficiency. A collimated wedge lens with multi-layer coating for a sharp and clear view. Specially customized European mini micro-LED technology generates the crystal-clear red dot reflection on the 20mm objective lens. With the power efficient circuitry, the battery life lasts just over two (2) years at illumination level #6 protected by the SIOPTO designed rigid battery cover. Depend on the SCOUTER when you need it, this red dot sight has a motion activation feature; it will automatically power on when motion is detected and will automatically shut off after two (2) hours of no motion. The push button switch adjusts the illumination through 11 different settings. Lightweight and compact, the SCOUTER is an extremely viable option for any weapon platform where the application requires quick target acquisition and transitioning in a close-quarters setting.
