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.
USA – -(Ammoland.com)- 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.
Kruger anticipates that this product will be available to key dealers and retailers during the spring of 2018. Dealers and retailers may contact Titch White, vice president of sales and marketing, to discuss this scope and other Kruger Products.
