The 1.1-6x20 PM Short-Dot model is a combination of a red dot sight and a scope. It has been developed for use at short and medium distances. With a low magnification the Short-Dot may be used like a red dot sight. The 1.5x magnification permits the shooter to keep both eyes open when aiming.
The red target dot is mirrored in the center of the reticle. Turned off the illuminated dot vanishes completely leaving the user with a normal reticle. The illuminating unit offers 5 illumination stages for use in broad daylight. The red dot remains visible, even on snow or sand or in bright sunlight.
Usage in poor lighting conditions provides for 3 illuminated stages, while another 3 three stages permit the use in combination with night-vision goggles. An automatic locking function is used to secure elevation and windage as well as the illuminating unit against any involuntary adjustment.
