Vortex Defender XL Micro Red Dot – 8 MOA Dot

The Vortex Defender XL was not just made for competition, it was made to win. Target to target. Stage to stage. Designed for toughness, speed, and accuracy, it withstands unexpected drops and the rigors of dynamic shooting. The ultra wide sight window enhances field of view for quicker target acquisition, faster follow-up shots, and greater flexibility in unconventional shooting positions – all positioning you to dominate every round.
