First Look: Riton Optics X3 Tactix MPRD

Riton X3-Tactix-MPRD

Sized right for concealed carry and ruggedly built, the Riton X3 Tactix MPRD makes your defensive pistol deadly accurate.

In the bad old days, a mild spring breeze was enough to knock a reflex sight off zero. This less than desirable trait made them a pretty sketchy addition to any gun meant to defend your life, thus kept them fairly cornered in the competitive shooting world. IDPA silhouettes don’t shoot back, so you had time to re-adjust. Now the aiming solutions are rugged as steel-belted tires and more than up to the role as a defensive-gun enhancement.

Riton Optics aimed for exactly this niche when it jumped into the reflex optics game a few years back with the X3 Tactix PRD and now looks to improve on the original design with the X3 Tactix MPRD. The MPRD stands for “Micro Pistol Red Dot”, essentially a scaled-down version of Riton’s previous reflex sight, making it more conducive to concealed carry guns. At the same tick, it’s just as rugged as the PRD.

Much of this is thanks to the optics maker favoring aircraft-grade aluminum over polymer for the housing, imparting greater impact resistance into the unit. From Riton’s literature, the Tactix MPRD is shockproof up 1,500 Gs, which doesn’t mean it’s impervious to a beating with a brick, but will stand up to most everyday hard knocks. Other notables of the red dot include multi-coated HD glass lenses, Shield RMSc footprint, 3 MOA dot, 10 levels of red illumination,and an auto shut off after twelve hours. It burns off a single CR2032 battery, with around 50,000 hours of run time between changes. As to price, Riton has kept X3 Tactix MPRD fairly affordable at $299.
