RMSc is an abbreviation for “reflex mini sight compact” – that is, as the name suggests, an extremely small and compact red dot sight, used on various handguns, from full-size competition pistols to EDC handguns and Glock.
This Shield dot is small enough to fit on almost any gun, tough enough to withstand the harshest recoil, and light enough that oftentimes, you forget it is even there. The RMSc is remarkably similar to the RMS model but more compact, hence the “c” in the name. It is packed with all great features and made of similar materials as the RMS, but it comes in a smaller package.
The RMSc can be bought with a 4 MOA red dot, which is made for precise aiming, and the 8 MOA one, made for faster dot acquisition. RMSc has an aluminium body, weighs 16 g, and has a CR2032 battery installed.
When it comes to the Shield RMSc, there is no power button to turn the device on and off. The red dot automatically adapts to the surrounding lighting conditions, and Shield states it has an always-on battery life of 2 or 3 years (even 4 years when stored in a dark space).
After use, it is best to store the reflex mini sight compact somewhere dark or put a cover on it to preserve battery life.
The RMSc was developed from the earlier SMSc (Shield mini sight). The SMSc has a polymer frame and costs 100 € less than the RMSc, which has an aluminium frame. The contents of the box remain the same, but the two still have some other differences, such as the weight.
SMSc weighs 12 g and RMSc 16 g. A 4 g difference is easily overlooked when carrying the dot. RMSc is a bit narrower than SMSc in width, as with aluminium, the thickness of the window frame is reduced.
Shield Sights is an English company from Dorset that manufactures red dots for pistols. The company was founded in the 1980s by John and Jeremy White. Mainly used for sports shooting, their optics are produced in the UK. The company is a creator of the most lightweight reflex red dot on the market.
Shield debunked the theory that alloys and glass in the construction of the dot are better than the use of plastic. As red dots get smaller, stronger, and easier to use, the users are beginning to acknowledge the benefits, and appreciate manufacturers that make such optics, one of them being Shield Sights.
