A tough polymer compact red-dot built for EDC and Single-stack Pistols. Improved strengthened polymer from that of the Original SMS, the SMSc is the compact version on an updated classic.
The SMSc is built in a nylon glass filled polymer and an Si02 Quartz hard coating for extra resilience to the daily wear and tear of shooting. Its iconic design still allows shooters to co-witness with standard iron sights thanks to its incredibly low profile and unobtrusive design with rear iron sight notch. It carries on Shield’s philosophy to make its users better shooters by eliminating what is not needed and providing the shooter with just one point of focus. We don’t have a large sight housing blocking vision, dimmed lenses, buttons to switch or backup sights blocking the view. We make our sights to fit as close to the bore-line as possible, where a trained shooter is naturally going to present their pistol allowing for a seamless transition and a familiar but improved shooting experience. Shield sights are made by shooters for shooters.
Available in 4Moa 8 Moa, 1Moa and 1&64Ring and dot.

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
