Sometimes big things come in small packages. As an illustration, comes the new ZONE red dot sight from X-Vision Optics. Don’t let its compact size fool you, the ZONE packs a lot of power in its small frame. Not to mention a rugged durability intended to endure hard use conditions.

The X-Vision Optics ZONE Red Dot

Building from a high impact 6061-T6 aluminum body, the ZRD1 (ZONE red dot) has reinforced housings and IPX7 waterproof rating. As a result, comes a durable optic that is waterproof up to 1 meter for thirty minutes.

Housed within the body is a 2 MOA center dot with 11 brightness settings, for use in all environmental conditions. The large center dot, coupled with a tapered tube effect, allows for faster target acquisition. Additionally, the parallax free red dot provides greater range and unlimited eye relief. Also, with a 1.45-inch cowitness, the ZONE is ready for any AR platform, via the picatinny mount.

Utilizing a low-power, energy-saving OLED display, the ZONE provides an extended battery life. Consequently, the red dot sight boasts 22,500-hour battery life on a single CR2032, according to the manufacturer.

“We live and breathe the outdoors and have set out to build optics that support the needs of those just like us.” Chris Shimek, X-Vision Optics owner and partner. “Our ZONE Red Dot is durable and compact.”
