Recently, Steiner Optics has released the Micro Pistol Sight or the MPS for short. This new micro red dot by Steiner looks to challenge Aimpoint’s ARCO P-1 and Holosun’s HE509T on market share when it comes down to closed emitter red dots. The MPS features an all metal enclosed red dot sight that comes with Steiner heritage of rugged dependability in a compact and lightweight design.

The MPS features a 3.3 MOA dot, parallax free up to 150 meters, 8 brightness settings with 2 night vision settings, weighs in at 2.05 oz, and takes a CR1632 battery. Steiner says it will feature several different mounting options and can also be mounted to a rifle or SMG. Steiner doesn’t give us the mounting footprint the MPS uses. Like most pistol red dots I believe it will stick to the popular Trijicon RMR footprint.

Below, is the product description and specs for the Steiner MPS.

Product Description

Steiner brings battle-proven durability and mil-spec ruggedness to pistol red dots with the NEW MPS (Micro Pistol Sight). All-metal construction and enhanced sidewalls completely seal in the emitter. A recessed window with a metal hood blocks objects from reaching the front lens making this one of the toughest pistol sights ever created.

At 2.05 oz, the MPS is compact and lightweight offering Steiner quality glass and a robust feature set including 8 brightness levels, user-selectable auto-off, and 13,000 hours of battery life.

The 1X magnification offers an undistorted image for both eyes open operation and complete situational awareness. The MPS is compatible with most optic-ready pistols and baseplate adapters on the market.
