New for 2021: micro red dot sights from Springfield Armory – Hex Wasp and Hex Dragonfly for concealed carry and sport shooting

The Springfield Hex Wasp 
The housing of the Springfield Hex Wasp is machined from 6061 T6 aluminum, the lens si made from appropriately coated glass.

The jungle of red dot sights suitable for handguns has grown a bit. Springfield Armory, as one of the oldest gun manufacturers in the US, is introducing two models at once.

The compact Hex Wasp from Springfield Armory:

With compact dimensions of 1.14" W x 1.9" L (24 x 41 mm) with a height of 1.01" (22 mm), the Hex Wasp is intended more for guns that are to be carried concealed. Its fine 3.5 MOA red dot (about 1”/2.5 centimeters at 25 meters) is automatically adjusted in brightness and reflected into the glass lens. It has the same footprint as the Shield RMSc, which is also very compact.

The Hex Dragonfly
The Hex Dragonfly can be used with the adapter plates of the Venom Viper or Burris Fast Fire.

For sports shooters: Springfield Hex Dragonfly

For sport shooters, the larger Hex Dragonfly might be interesting. It's 1.9" L x 1.14" W (48 x 29 mm) with a height of just under 1.01" H (26 mm). It also features a 3.5 MOA dot and a scratch-resistant glass lens. Brightness adjustment is manual with 8 settings. Like its smaller brother, the housing is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum. It shares the footprint with the quite common Vortex Venom and the Burris Fast Fire.

Pricing for Europe is not yet set, but in the US the Hex Wasp costs $299 without taxes, which is about € 252.- euros at the current dollar exchange rate. The larger Dragonfly costs even less, at 249 US dollars (about € 210.-).
