The Steiner MPS is constructed around a rugged metal housing with enhanced sidewalls and a sealed emitter that can withstand submersion down to 10 meters.


After the testing and evaluation process, both the Lubbock and Cross Roads, Texas, police departments have approved the Steiner MPS for duty use. This status is only granted to items 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 Interstate 35 corridor between Dallas and Fort Worth—has approved the Micro Pistol Sight.

Another local law enforcement agency in Texas, the Dallas Police Department, is currently testing and evaluating the MPS for possible approval.
