USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Kruger Optical will introduce its new Quad Safe laser reflex sight at the 2018 SHOT Show, slated for Jan. 23-26 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas. Attendees can try out the new sight, along with other Kruger products, in Booth 331.

SHOT Show visitors can also view the new sight in the show’s New Product Center.

The patented design features a standard red dot reticle, along with four lasers. The lasers project four dots onto the target that show the boundaries of the shotgun’s pattern.

“We’ve partnered with Ochoco Arms of Prineville, Oregon, to create the ultimate self-defense sight for a shotgun,” said Kruger President Mark Thomas. “Our sight gives the shooter the advantage of seeing a clear zone of where their pattern will go.”

The lasers can be calibrated to correspond with the gun’s choke setting, so they accurately indicate the size of the shot pattern. Each laser has its own power source and can be adjusted independently. Each laser is independent for maximum brightness and accuracy.

The 1x sight also includes a windage/elevation adjustment of +/- 50 MOA, for even greater accuracy. The reticle can be illuminated, with 5 brightness levels.

“We are proud to be working with Kruger Optical to bring the quad laser to market,” said Sam Lambert, president and CEO of Ochoco Arms. “The product will significantly reduce the risk of collateral damage associated with using a shotgun in a home defense or law enforcement environment by providing the user with immediate visual feedback on the spread pattern of their shot at range.”

“Our combined technology with Kruger Optical’s robust craftsmanship will allow for an unparalleled end user experience,” Lambert added.
Thomas said the sight will be useful for law enforcement, security personnel and home defense, and offers shooters better accuracy, safety and confidence in their targets. The four lasers allow for quick target acquisition in emergency situations, since a shooter can find their target with or without looking through the sight.

“This is part of our effort to bring innovative, high tech products that have more than one function,” Thomas said. “This sight offers more flexibility in how it’s used.”

Other Kruger Quad Laser Reflex Sight features include:

• 1x compact reflex sight.
• 3 MOA dot size.
• Parallax free to 50 yards.
• Impact tested to 750 g for 1,000 cycles.
• Windage/elevation adjustment to +/-50 MOA.
• Illuminated reticle with 8 brightness levels; CR2 battery.

Unless the shotgun pattern increases linearly and consistently with distance, this type of sight could be a real problem in real life – despite any disclaimers from the manufacturer, users WILL expect the lasers to PRECISELY locate the edge of the pattern. With, naturally enough, laserlike accuracy. (This will be especially problematic with the sight mounted so high above the barrel.)

Another added safety measure that doesn’t require engaging or dis engagement seems like a plus. While operators through time have patterns engrained in their minds, your average home defense application may benefit from this. While nothing can absolutely rule out the occasional flyer, this may help the non expert understand patterns as they enter and exit their typical training distance.
I’m curious about the price point as well. There are other similar products out there doing that same thing differently

Interesting concept and, on paper, I can see the applications but in real life I’m not so sure. But, I’m open to being convinced.
