R.A.I.D. Pistol Red Dot from SOUSA


R.A.I.D. Pistol Red Dot from SOUSA

Recently I was fortunate to attend the Blue August Gun Writers Conference in Grapevine, Texas. Always on the lookout for new and innovative products, a new red dot optic caught my eye. The R.A.I.D (Rapid Acquisition and Intervention Device) by SOUSA appeared to have all the right features for those looking for a compact and affordable red dot for their favorite carry gun.

I was able to give this new pistol red dot a try, both on indoor and outdoor ranges, and found it to be fast and clear. This little red dot will fit RMR cut mounts and also comes standard with a picatinny rail adapter. By all accounts this new optic from SOUSA is well worth a look and retails for $179.99.

According to a company spokesman the R.A.I.D. Pistol optic is fast, light, strong and precise. These are the key features of our new R.A.I.D. ™ red dots. The R.A.I.D. line of red dots are traditional enclosed red dots packed with new features. Cast aluminum housings provide the lightest weight possible while maintaining exceptional strength.

The wide lens and thin frame provide a wide-open and unobstructed sight picture while the bright 3MOA dot presents a crisp, precise aiming point. The design of the body is designed to help deflect minor bumps and bangs away from the lens protecting the glass and special coatings that offer a very clear, and night vision compatible, viewing plane.

With 11 brightness settings (two are night vision) you will be able to tune your dot to and situation. The tough electronic system is equally at home mounted on the slide of your favorite carry pistol as it is on the heaviest hitting shotguns.
