The leader in high-performance optics for military and law enforcement continues to expand its new MPS (Micro Pistol Sight) approved-for-duty-use status among law enforcement agencies.

After rigorous testing and evaluation, both the Lubbock and Cross Roads, Texas, police departments have approved the MPS for duty use. This status is only granted to products that offer the maximum in reliability and consistency when lives are on the line. Additionally, the Arlington, Texas, SWAT unit located in the heart of the I35 corridor between Dallas and Fort Worth, have approved the optic. 

The Dallas Police Department is currently testing and evaluating the MPS for possible approval. 

The Steiner MPS is a micro red dot purpose-built to withstand the hard use and challenging field conditions encountered by defense professionals across the nation. Borrowing the same performance and battle-proven engineering found in Steiner's tactical optics for military and law enforcement, the MPS is constructed around a rugged, all-metal housing with enhanced sidewalls and a sealed emitter that can withstand submersion down to 10 meters.

Despite its compact size and light weight, the MPS is packed with features that ensure reliability and predictable performance for hard-duty use. The recessed optic window and thick metal shroud protects the Steiner-quality lens from most direct impacts and the 1X magnification delivers a crisp, undistorted image for quick, both-eyes-open sight picture acquisition. Additional features include a bright 3.3 MOA reticle, 13,000-hour battery life, 8 brightness levels, user-selectable auto-off, and multiple mounting options.
