At the recent Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous, we got some very needed time on the range. During our range sessions, we also got to spend some time on the trigger, using the new Riton X3 Tactix MPRD red dot. In a world gone increasingly toward small, value-packed optics, the X3 Tactix MPRD manages to stand out.

Riton X3 Tactix MPRD Details

It starts with a 6061 aircraft grade aluminum housing. Turn inside, the optic features fully multi-coated HD glass. It stands up to water, fog and shock, a welcomed bit of ruggedness.

The optic utilizes a Shield RMS-c footprint for mounting. A 3 MOA dot helps shooters get on target. For varying light conditions, it includes 10 levels of red illumination. An auto shut-off feature helps the CR2032 deliver 50,000 hours of battery life.

Overall, the new X3 delivers a tone of features, well-suited for today’s growing carry optics market. Better still, it delivers it all for under $300, making this optic worth a look for most any budget. For even more information, please visit
