Vortex® Defender-CCW™ 1x20mm 6 MOA Red Dot Sight Weaver Mount


The micro-sized Defender-CCW™ delivers maximum optical performance and reliability. The slim profile means no extra bulk or width. A large, class-leading sight window and brilliant, illuminated dot help you lock on target faster, even in low light. Auto-Shutoff to preserve battery life. Motion activated, so it’s instantly ready when you need it. Fits full-size to micro-compacts.
