Form – the sight is small, light and clear whilst offering the best visual characteristics.
Function – the sight improves the shooters ability to hit any chosen target early.
As Shooters ourselves we want to evolve equipment to ensure our customers get the best result from their shooting and we do this by incorporating knowledge that has been obtain over 40 years of training and international practical shooting experience, performed at the highest level.
When designing Shield Sights if something is not required it is not added to our products. We pay attention to key elements which will rapidly improve our customers shooting ability. These include our sight height over bore line which assists the shooters ability to acquire the sight picture early. The overall size to ensure the sight is not obtrusive or large and does not dull, dim or obscure information from the shooters field of view. These are critical aspects in any shooting environment to give our customers the edge in any training, competitive or life-threatening situation, so they can perform without limits.
