New from Kruger Optical: Quad Safe Laser Reflex Shotgun Sight

Kruger Optical shotgun laser sight

Did you know you can miss with a shotgun? True story! Yes, shotgun pellets spread out over distance. But at close range — where you home defense shotgun is a thing — we’re talking a spread about the size of a softball (all things being equal). Could you miss a bad guy if you were trying to pelt him of her with a softball? Sure! So maybe a shotgun-mounted laser sight is a good idea. And maybe . . .

a quad shotgun-mounted laser sight is a better idea. Kruger Optical sure thinks so. But then they would, wouldn’t they? We’ll hit them up for a T&E Quad Safe Laser Reflex Shotgun Sight and test it against [what I consider to be] the de facto HD shotgun sight (a ghost ring). Watch this space.

Kruger Optical Quad Safe reflex shotgun sight

USA – -( Kruger Optical introduces its new Quad Safe laser reflex sight. The patented design features a standard red dot reticle, along with four lasers. The lasers project four dots onto the target that show the boundaries of the shotgun’s pattern.

“We’ve partnered with Ochoco Arms of Prineville, Oregon, to create the ultimate self-defense sight for a shotgun,” said Kruger President Mark Thomas. “Our sight gives the shooter the advantage of seeing a clear zone of where their pattern will go.”

The lasers can be calibrated to correspond with the gun’s choke setting, so they accurately indicate the size of the shot pattern. Each laser has its own power source and can be adjusted independently. Each laser is independent for maximum brightness and accuracy.

The 1x sight also includes a windage/elevation adjustment of +/- 50 MOA, for even greater accuracy. The reticle can be illuminated, with 5 brightness levels.

“We are proud to be working with Kruger Optical to bring the quad laser to market,” said Sam Lambert, president and CEO of Ochoco Arms. “The product will significantly reduce the risk of collateral damage associated with using a shotgun in a home defense or law enforcement environment by providing the user with immediate visual feedback on the spread pattern of their shot at range.”

“Our combined technology with Kruger Optical’s robust craftsmanship will allow for an unparalleled end user experience,” Lambert added.
Thomas said the sight will be useful for law enforcement, security personnel and home defense, and offers shooters better accuracy, safety and confidence in their targets. The four lasers allow for quick target acquisition in emergency situations, since a shooter can find their target with or without looking through the sight.

“This is part of our effort to bring innovative, high tech products that have more than one function,” Thomas said. “This sight offers more flexibility in how it’s used.”

Other Kruger Quad Laser Reflex Sight features include:

• 1x compact reflex sight.
• 3 MOA dot size.
• Parallax free to 50 yards.
• Impact tested to 750 g for 1,000 cycles.
• Windage/elevation adjustment to +/-50 MOA.
• Illuminated reticle with 8 brightness levels; CR2 battery.

    Four lasers… because three lasers like the Predator from the movie series of the same name was a bit too obvious.

      I only want a tri-laser if it comes with the shoulder thing that goes up.

    A projected circle was too simple a solution?

      @ garnbwt
      Great idea, but probably much more expensive than 4 cheap ass lasers.

  6. avatar Curtis in IL says:

    I don’t have a problem with lasers in general, as long as you have a plan B. Never trust your life to battery powered devices.

    But the de facto HD shotgun sight is not a ghost ring. It’s a front bead and a shooter who knows how to point (not aim) a shotgun. Pointing a shotgun allows the shooter to keep both eyes open for better depth perception and situational awareness.

    Ideal for shotguns with square bores.

    “Each laser has its own power source…”

    Great. Just fvcking *great*.

    4 times as many tiny expensive watch batteries to buy.

    Free hint to sight manufacturer – If you want equal brightness lasers, feed each one its own regulated current source. It’s dirt cheap, by the time you use *one* lithium cell to power it. Laser diodes *love* being fed regulated current…

    I think (some) credit is due here and wish them well. One of the constraints on civil use of lasers has been eye safe power levels. Past attempts to compensate like the LaserLyte Laser Sight Center Mass just changed the nature of the problem since you now see several dots but still have to stare for a while to figure out which one is centered. This laser array with all lasers parallel and no beam dispersal like the LaserLyte is a huge improvement even if gimmicky. My personal preference would be for an array of more closely spaced green lasers without the reflex.

    The other angle to consider is that it looks like they may have expressly built it as a rule beater and have a fine line to walk. Several years ago when shower head flow rates became regulated chromed multi shower head manifolds suddenly appeared on the market.

    Edit: Upon Viewing their website I see I was wrong. The beams diverge and they have made an inferior knockoff of the LaserLyte Center Mass system.

    Is the idea to have the laser square on target be likely to encompass 100% of all shot hits, or just >50% so that most are hitting the target? If 51% hit around the center of the torso, then at very short distances probably 100% will be hitting the target, but some will be less likely to hit the spine/heart.

    If the pattern is the size of a softball, give or take, then wouldn’t a single laser do pretty much the same thing? It’s true that if the laser is hitting the very edge of a torso, then some shot is going to miss, and some hit the ribs, lung, abdominal/oblique/lateral muscles, etc but why would one take the time to aim right at the edge of the torso in a SD situation?

    Can someone explain this better? I’m trying to comprehend the usefulness.

  11. Look how high above the bore the lasers are (especially the top two lasers).
    What are they, 2.5″ above the bore even for the lowest laser, maybe 4.5″ for the highest lasers?
    This makes them inaccurate, because in order to zero them for one range (e.g. 15 feet), they’ll be wildly inaccurate for all other ranges (e.g. at 10 feet or 20 feet you’d miss the target). Also, if the lasers are each “independent” as the company says, then you have to zero each of them separately, which would be a royal PITA.
    In order to be accurate at more than one distance, lasers have to be as close as possible to the bore.
    For pistols, that means a guide rod laser, but those are only available for a few specific guns.
    For shotguns, one laser would be better than four, as long as that one laser is close to the bore.
