OPTICS
RED-DOT AND MAGNIFIED OPTICS FROM SIGHTMARK
AND TRUGLO THAT WON’T BREAK THE BANK
BY TIM STETZER

W

hen it comes to optics, especially
for modern sporting rifles and
handguns, there are a lot of
options available these days.
The first thing you need to do is
figure out your intended use, whether you need
magnification or whether a red dot is best.

GUN WORLD | OCT 2016 | www.gunworld.com

Most people will start looking at their budget; that’s
always a tough one for a lot of folks. You want durability
and quality, but you often can’t or don’t want to spend as
much as you did on your firearm just to be able to shoot it.
If that’s the position you’re in, a couple of new
models from Sightmark and TruGlo might be what
you’re looking for.

User-friendly "up" and "down" buttons control the two night vision settings and the seven brightness levels on the Wolverine. It’s powered by a
single AA battery in an easily accessible battery compartment on the side of the sight body.

SIGHTMARK WOLVERINE
Sightmark makes an extensive line of
red-dot and magnified optics, but what I had
a chance to work with was the Wolverine
lineup—the 1x23 CSR and 1x28 FSR. These
are two rugged red-dot units with features
well above their modest price points. Both
are of similar design and construction;
where they differ is that the FSR is designed
for AR platform rifles and uses a 2 MOA
dot. The smaller CSR is designed for shotguns and short-barreled rifles and uses a
4 MOA dot.
Both are constructed of a one-piece
6061-T6 aluminum body covered by a
rubber-armored shell. The battery compartments are located on the left side of the
optic tube. Windage and elevation knobs are
located in the traditional positions (on the
top and right side of the tube) and are
tethered to prevent loss.
The lenses are scratch-resistant and feature an anti-reflective lens coating. The fogproof tubes are nitrogen purged. Operating
temperature is -22 to 122 (F), and both
have an IP67 waterproof rating and are
submersible to 3 feet.
There are two night vision settings and
eight brightness levels. Both units are
powered by AA batteries that provide an
impressive 50,000-hour battery life on the
“medium” setting. Both models come with
an adjustable-height Picatinny mount for
easy, out-of-the-box mounting.
I used the Wolverines on a pair of AR
pistols, putting the CSR on my 10.5-inch
5.56 and the FSR on my .300 Blackout.

The lenses of the Wolverine sights are scratch-resistant
and have an anti-reflective lens coating.

The Wolverine FSR uses a 2 MOA dot and is designed for AR platform rifles.

Mounting was fast and simple, and sight-in
proved quick, as well: Both pistols were
sighted-in within five shots.
The dots were bright, very crisp and easy
to see, even for someone with an astigmatism
(like me). Weight on the CSR is just 10.3
ounces, and the FSR is a touch heavier, at

12.3 ounces. While neither model is a micro
red dot, both are still lightweight and don’t
add much bulk to the gun.

MSRPs: $155.99for the CSR;$179.99for the FSR
