SHOT16: Shield Sights Now Available at Brownells

Some of you may not know who Shield is. It has actually been sold under other brand names for many years, which is why you may know the Shield Mini Sight as the Firepoint, Tasco Optima, Trijicon RedDot or JPoint. Looks like Brownells has picked up the SIS and the CQS, so you can now easily get them in the States when your ordering that selector spring that you lost. These micro red dots have been getting some great reviews.

The Shield CQS is small but can take a beating. Its based on the CQB which was chosen by the MOD for the FIST program.

This is what Brownells has to say about their recent goods they are peddling.

Shield Sights announced today that Brownells has included the Shield CQS and SIS Red Dot Sights for US distribution. The Shield Sights products are available immediately and will be featured at SHOT Show in Las Vegas.

“This is a positive step forward for our International sales and more importantly Shield supporting the US shooting industry” said James White, marketing director at Shield. “This is a testament to the quality and functionality of the Shield product line.”

The CQS and SIS Red Dot Sights have been created with the military standards that were requested and recognized by the UK MOD and proven in our CQB model. These robust features along with many added features are now available in CQS and SIS Red Dot Sights and made available to every shooter in the US.

“Shield Sights prides themselves on innovation and will continue to bring new products to market like the Shield CQS and Red Dot Sights,” said James White. “With these innovations, we feel confident that our partners at Brownells will continue to add us to their product line throughout 2016.

Shield Sights has been at the fore front of Red Dot design and functionality for the past 20 years and the SIS is the latest product offering. The SIS has been designed by listening to customers and gaining real-world application feedback from Special Forces, Law Enforcement, Competition shooters, and Military users across the world.  The SIS features including 3 x Automatic brightness levels, 12 x manual levels and 4 Reticule options.

The SIS and CQS both come packaged with a variable triple height polymer picatinny mount allowing the user to determine the most comfortable height set-up.

What is the NSSF SHOT Show?

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world’s premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services.

Imagine the Worlds’ Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you’d like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year’s SHOT, there’s a live map right here, though it doesn’t reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc.
