The Crimson Trace CTS-1500 is a lightweight yet durable red-dot reflex sight that is adjustable for windage and elevation. Kimber selected it for the R7 Mako because the CTS-1500 has high efficiency and will last for many years. The unit has a 3-MOA dot, and the brightness of that dot automatically adjusts for ambient light levels. It also has an automatic movement-based on/off function.

The CTS-1500 is powered by one CR2032 lithium battery, and at mid-level dot brightness (indoor lighting conditions), runtime is greater than 5,000 hours.

Made of rugged aluminum, the CTS-1500 is 0.99 inch wide, 1.60 inches long, and 0.91 inch tall. It comes with a removable protective plastic cover. Crimson Trace recommends storing the CTS-1500 with the protective cover on in order to maximize battery life.
