In the upcoming July 2014 issue of GUNS & WEAPONS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT, author Robert A. Sadowski rounds up some of the newest red-dot and holographic sights for law enforcement officers who need fast targeting capabilities, accuracy and durability—all in one unit.

It incorporates two high, Weaver-style ring mounts for ease of use on AR platforms. The company’s TRS- 25 HiRise red-dot sight is purpose-built for AR rifle platforms. It incorporates a single high, Weaver- style mount to perfectly align the red dot with an AR shooter’s eye. The 3-MOA red dot reticle has multiple illumination adjustment settings…

Leupold has built upon the strengths of its popular DeltaPoint sight with the equally impressive DeltaPoint 2. This ultra-compact and capable red dot sight now includes a manual brightness adjustment for users who prefer brighter or dimmer dots. The rock-solid unit retains the patented motion-sensor technology of its predecessor, which instantly detects motion and activates while automatically adjusting the brightness to the environment…”
