The RMSw is designed to resist damage from water or other harsh environmental conditions. The RMS-W is gasket sealed to create a watertight fit between the slide and the battery compartment without the need for additional mounting plates. When the sight is mounted it will remain watertight at depths of up to 20 meters for over 30 minutes.
The RMS-W also features a newly designed frame that adds thickness to the housing as well as a new side profile. The RMS-W will also be the first sight in the RMS line to benefit from the newly developed hard-coated polymer lens.
The RMS-W has the same footprint as all previous Shield mini sights and will fit any slide that has already been cut for the RMS, RMS-C, SMS, or Jpoint.
Shield’s sight mounting options are vast and they currently offer over 40 solutions to fit a mini sight to a wide range of popular pistols, scopes, shotguns and rifles.
*The RMS-W relies on having a tight seal between sight and mount. If you are mounting the RMSw on a single stack or tapered top pistol the fully waterproof feature could be compromised.
Lens Cleaning Instructions
When cleaning your Shield Sight, the lens needs to be prepared and cleared of any debris before the cleaning process can begin in order to avoid scratching the lens.
We recommend using compressed air to blow away debris rather than wiping the lens. This can be in a form of an aerosol-can, that can be purchased online.
Once you are happy that your lens is clear of debris, hot soapy water is the most effective solution to clean the lens. Household washing up liquid is sufficient. Using a Q-tip, dip the end in the solution and gently start wiping the lens discarding the Q-tip after each full rotation to ensure residue is not spread across the lens. We recommend starting around the edges of the lens working the way in to the centre.
This process can be used for both glass and polymer lenses
