Bushnell has announced a new reflex sight—the RXS-100, which has a bargain price with MSRP at $99.99. Designed with user-adjustable brightness settings and multi-platform versatility, the new RXS-100 red-dot optic is compatible with optics-ready pistols, and is also an option for rifles, shotguns and other firearms.

The Bushnell RXS-100 reflex sight sports a bright red dot and is designed for harsh use.


At the core of the RXS-100 is a 4-MOA red dot with eight brightness settings. Bushnell says that the battery life is approximately 5,000 hours of runtime on the middle setting. An energy efficient, point source LED creates a collimated beam for a clear and strong 4-MOA red dot. A key feature of the RXS-100, this setup is not commonly seen in reflex sights at this price point, which typically use masked LED designs. Additionally, the RXS-100 also includes a 12-hour auto-off timer to extend battery life.

With a Leupold DeltaPoint Pro footprint, the RXS-100 works across all common red-dot mounts, as well as Weaver-style mounting options using the included riser.

The side-loading battery allows for easy replacement without removing the sight from the firearm and losing the zero. Durability is provided by a rugged, aircraft-grade aluminum housing that keeps glass and electronic internal components protected from recoil and rough use. In addition, the oversized hood helps to reduce glare and enhances lens durability against impact.

“With the introduction of the RXS-100, we are able to offer users a reliable, affordable reflex sight that has all of the features they requested for under $100,” said Derek Osburn, director of optics for Vista Outdoor.


As for layout and design, the RXS-100 has a design that focuses on convenience, including detented windage/elevation adjustments with 1 MOA per click, and digital controls with push-button actuation for brightness setting adjustments. And to maximize light transmission, the RXS-100 has special coatings that help mitigate blue tint on the glass.

Included in the box with the red dot are basic mounting and adjustment tools, protective form-fit cover, a cleaning cloth and one CR2032 battery.
