NOBLEX has been making high-end optics out of Germany for 150 years. A well-known brand, but they weren’t on my SHOT Show must-visit list. Thankfully a picture of this new “NOBLEX Sight for GLOCK M.O.S. System” optic caught my eye and I popped in to check it out. This is easily one of the coolest micro red dot pistol sights available.

Whereas other MRDS use the GLOCK M.O.S. mounting plate as a sandwich-style adapter in-between the optic and the gun, the NOBLEX optic IS the mounting plate.

It’s the lowest-mounted reflex sight in the world. Even GLOCK’s factory, plastic sights can be lined up through the lens of the NOBLEX — no suppressor-height sights necessary.

Unlike the vast majority of other reflex sights on the market, the NOBLEX is fully enclosed. This protects the LED from water, dirt, mud, etc. that can block its ability to reflect onto the lens where the shooter sees it as a floating dot.

On the NOBLEX, the 5 MOA, auto-brightness-adjusting dot is projected from an LED inside of the two-lens, enclosed optic that’s surrounded by a steel housing.

NOBLEX says it’s impervious to heavy use, and the design is certainly a great step in that direction. It’s also sleeker, lower, and generally less likely to snag than many MRDS and, as it mounts directly to the slide rather than via an adapter, it’s a more integral connection with half as many screws and what should be a more secure, solid connection to the gun.

Hopefully we can borrow one for review, because on paper and just playing with it in the SHOT Show booth it seems really promising. Plus, I dig its unique look.

  1. Looks interesting. A bit of a shame they couldn’t ‘curved’ the housing a bit more so it couldn’t hang up on clothing when being drawn…

    • I agree. The viewing window looks pretty small too. I’d be interested in something similar for suppressor height sights, which could have a larger than usual window. I already installed Heine suppressor height tritium sights on my G19 G5 MOS, so no savings for me there. My dealer couldn’t find a MOS model that had night sights, so I needed to replace the sights anyway.

    • Speaking of being hung up on clothing, wonder if this optic will allow for one handed slide racking on a gun belt…more than once. They do claim, “… it’s impervious to heavy use…”

      • That looks like it’s possible, press against your pants and cycle it that way.

        Is there anything stopping you from a strip of skateboard tape on the top of your slide for a similar effect?

    • Can always modify it in the shop, 3D printer, some sand paper, and a little Epoxy. Such will make the overall profile bigger but more rounded.

      • Now that’s the proper GLOCK Perfection approach! Pay premium and then finish the product yourself after you bring it home. It works for Gaston, why not for Noblex?

  2. My issue with micro red dots is that they all bloom on me due to my astigmatism. Any chance these would be any different?

  3. If it will hold up to use it as a hammer on the job site followed by being thrown down my driveway, it will maybe worthy of me carrying to baskin robins for a banana split. Terrorists love ice cream and I need to prepared.

    • Krampus, just kick ’em in the head with your hoof and you’re good-to-go…

  4. I’ll try it. Glocks aren’t my fav, so maybe this would give me a reason to shoot one more often.

    Thanks for the article!!

  5. Ok. So whos slide does it mount to. Glock stock, Brownells rmr cut, MidwayUSAs Swenson’s rmr cut, or does it need a glock cut for it? Would have been nice to mention that. I actually have found that the Swenson slides are very nice for the price and very good fit to their brand of SAMMI spec barrels. Alot less expense and better fit than the high dollor options with no rattle from barrel slide match up.

  6. Now someone needs to hit it with a hammer until it breaks then claim that it sucks and they wouldn’t trust it with their life.

  7. find the Noblex produktKatalog here , Mounts and part numbers and MSRP=19%VAT
