With competitive shooting being at the core of Shield Sights foundation, the RMSx pulls from the experience of two generations of international competitive pistol shooting experience. The RMSx features a larger viewing window with a distinctive housing and parallax free and an all-new hard dip coated (HDC) polymer lens with a 5H hardness rating. The RMSx shares the same Shield footprint that can be found cut into the slide of many popular handguns and matches the entire RMS and SMS line of optics. The RMSx takes advantage of updated LED and electronic technology that produces increased reliability and longer battery life over a wide variety of conditions.

“Shield Sights started over 25 years ago by developing and manufacturing red dot sights specifically for the Competitive shooter. Over the years we have learned the competitive environment presents a completely different set of variables than are commonly found in other applications,” said James White, CEO Shield Sights “We feel the RMSx provides a perfect balance of features that will meet the needs of the most discerning competitive shooters.”

    • I never got into the whole red dot thing, especially on pistols. But, $450 for a piece of quality equipment doesn’t seem expensive. If it’s quality equipment. I spent that much on a pocket knife not long ago.

      • Well one problem for this sight is that I can buy three lifetime warranty Vortex Venom for the same price.

        Also, I don’t see a ready path to replace this battery from the top.

  1. There’s a lot of nice designs out there, but the real question is if it will hold up to actual competition use, i.e. tens of thousands of rounds through a pistol with a light recoil spring.

  2. I love their honesty. They produce a competition product and sell it a such. No super operator warfighter in the advertisement, no claim that it’s the best bombproof war optic. Not Aaron Cowan drop test safe, but a big window. You know what you get.

  3. What it the COUNTRY OF ORIGIN (a PLA factory or ANYWHERE else)?

    Some reason that TTAG can’t bother to learn/disclose this info on ALL reviews?
