This covers their lineup of Micro Red Dot Sights, which have become a staple for pistol optic options. For the Full Press Release: SHIELD SIGHTS IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE ALL GLASS LENS AS STANDARD OPTION ON SMS2, SMSC, RMS, RMSC, AND RMSW For Immediate Release – Dorset, England, U.K. – Shield Sights, Pioneer of compact micro red dot optics is pleased to now offer glass lenses on entire line pistol optics. Previously only available as a custom option, glass lenses are now a standard option on all pistol optics. Customers can now choose the best lens option for their given application without having to go through the longer custom option wait times. The all glass lens option gives negligible parallax whilst offering the users maximum scratch resistance and ultra clarity. “We are constantly looking for value added improvements for our customers and it’s become clear that more users are looking for the maximum scratch resistance that a glass lens offers.” Said James White, CEO Shield Sights “We like to put the power of choice in the hands of our customers and offer multiple lens options within a reasonable price range.” When selecting the correct lens for a given application customers should consider the following: Cost, the need for being shatter proof, and the level of scratch resistance needed. Users looking for a more competitive option can opt for an SMS with an all polymer lens knowing special care must be taken during cleaning. For the remaining product line, the SMS2, SMSc, RMS, RMS2, RMSc and RMSw, users looking for a balance of durability and added scratch resistance should opt for the SiO2 coated polymer lens, whereas users needing maximum scratch resistance and flexibility during maintenance should opt for an all glass lens.
