TRUGLO has a new series of red-dot optics designed for close-quarter, fast-sight acquisition scenarios. Two optics are offered: IGNiTE 30mm and IGNiTE Mini. Each model is powered by one AAA battery (runtime depends on battery type, temperature, and brightness setting), has a 2-MOA dot, and is adjustable for windage and elevation (the adjustments are lockable). The optics have 10 push-button-controlled brightness settings and a four-hour idle auto-off. The unit remembers the last used brightness settings when powering on. These optics are nitrogen-filled, fogproof, water-resistant, and shockproof (rated up to 7.62 NATO).
I’ve been using the IGNiTE Mini (TG8322BN), and it features a 22mm objective lens, has unlimited eye relief, and comes with a “high” Picatinny/Weaver rail mount preinstalled. A low mount is included and swaps easily with the high mount if the shooter wants a lower mount. The high mount provides a lower-third co-witness with AR-15 back-up iron sights. The optic mounting system is compatible with T1/H1 mounts and adapters, so the optic can be used on shotguns, railed handguns, and “scout” configuration rifles.
The IGNiTE Mini is CNC machined from aircraft-grade aluminum, making it a compact, versatile, and rugged optic. It’s covered by TRUGLO’s TRU-CARE limited lifetime warranty.
