The 2018 Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous in early October gave me an up-close look at some of the “latest and greatest” in the industry. One significant optic I got to test was the Sightmark Ultra Shot M-Spec LQD reflex sight.

As far as modern reflex sights go, the Ultra Shot M-Spec should be near the top of your list.

Sightmark Ultra Shot M-Spec Features

The red 65-MOA circle-dot red reticle has 10 brightness settings. Compatible with night-vision equipment, it has multiple brightness modes, parallax correction beyond 10 yards and 1 MOA click adjustments; this spans a total of 120 MOA of travel. The central dot is 2 MOA. Slotted windage and elevation adjustments make the process easier.

Once sighted in, the Ultra Shot M-Spec’s internal locking adjustment system keeps everything set.

Depending on the amount of power consumed according to brightness, battery life ranges from 200 to 2,000 hours on a single CR123 battery. It has a motion sensing auto shut off after 12 hours sitting idle.

The IP55 weather-resistant, shockproof Ultra Shot M-Spec LQD Reflex boasts a magnesium alloy body and a 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum protective shield. In other words, it’s built tough.

The Ultra Shot M-Spec has a recoil rating up to .338 Lapua Magnum, locking Picatinny mount and a lifetime warranty. It includes adjustment tools, a CR123A battery, operation manual and neoprene cover. It is compatible with the Sightmark XT-3 Tactical Magnifier, which I operated in tandem with the Ultra Shot.

The objective lens measures 33x24mm, the overall unit measures 4.01 x 2.24 x 2.32 inches and weighs 10.2 ounces.

Range Time With the Sightmark Ultra Shot M-Spec

Perfectly suited for fast, accurate action at the range, the Sightmark Ultra Shot M-Spec LQD Reflex Sight delivers a crisp field of view with an advanced, anti-reflective, scratch resistant lens system. The parallax-free wide lens provided quick target acquisition.

Rested on a DOA shooting bench, it was a simple task to pound steel shot after shot out to 300 yards with a lightweight 9mm AR wearing the Sightmark Ultra M-Spec.

One of the best features of this unit is an integrated sunshade that retracts when not needed. It made a notable difference shooting in Montana at the Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous.

Why Pick the Sightmark Ultra Shot M-Spec?

The build alone is almost worth the price. It’s a rugged sight that is up to just about anything you can throw at it.

But performance is obviously the most important factor. The Ultra Shot M-Spec is fast and accurate — two qualities that are paramount for a reflex sight. From our shooting, 300 yards was a breeze. So if you’re only looking to go out to 50 or 100 yards, you’re in very good hands.

What about price point? The Ultra Shot M-Spec LQD retails for $299. For that price, it’s pretty much a no-brainer.

Who we are

We are a community of concerned patriots who are not overly confident in the current direction of our society, from the wild political climate to what can be summed up as a lack of morals or a complete void of integrity and pretty much a blatant disregard of respect..... Respect for our past, respect for our future and respect for each other. In order to protect our constitution and life as we know it, we decided to not be the silent majority anymore and pull our selves up by the bootstraps and make the world a better place. This website is to unite people like us, people who want to make a difference ... and do it the right way, Little did we know that in doing so we would create the number one militia community online. Here we are. Enjoy.
