Hartman Optics MH1 Reflex Sight

Phil at TFB has the scoop on the just-announced Hartman Optics MH1 Reflex Sight.

Bizarrely, no one notices that this sight is very similar to the MSE-AQC sights that CAA was selling a couple years ago, also designed by Mikey Hartman. Optic control via PTT cable, German-post-esque reticle, huge window, etc. The MH1 seems to improve on the MSE-ACQ by dumping the switchable reticle in favor of motion-sensing on/off and USB charging and brightness configuration. While the USB recharging is a bit of a gimmick, customizing the sight’s brightness levels and other settings via USB is a clever idea that could be the next big thing.

Street price is going to be the make or break, I think. You can buy the Mepro Tru-Dot RDS at Amazon for $335, which is really a terrific deal for a combat-grade reflex sight. It is really unclear to me that anyone is going to spend 50% more on a sight without that sort of heritage. I just don’t think I’d spend $150 more for a slightly fancier reticle and USB configuration.
