Leupold & Stevens, Inc., provider of the world’s most rugged, lightweight, and clear sport optics, is pleased to announce that the new DeltaPoint Micro has been named “Optic of the Year” by Shooting Illustrated, an official journal of the National Rifle Association. The award – officially known as a Golden Bullseye – will be presented to Leupold at the 150th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Houston.

In their 19th year, the NRA Publications Golden Bullseye Awards acknowledge the finest products available in the shooting sports. The winners are selected by a committee consisting of editors and veteran NRA Publications staff, representing more than a century of collective experience in the shooting and hunting industry. To qualify for consideration for a Golden Bullseye Award, a product must have been recently introduced to consumers, used/tested by an NRA staff member or regular contributor to the magazine and/or affiliated media, reliable in the field, meeting or exceeding the evaluator’s expectations, innovative in design and function, and styled in a manner befitting the shooting and hunting industry and, perhaps more importantly, its enthusiasts.

“No red dot sight on the market is more compact, easy-to-use, and ruggedly reliable as the DeltaPoint Micro,” said Bruce Pettet, President and Chief Executive Officer of Leupold & Stevens, Inc. “It delivers on all counts, and is designed, machined, and assembled in the United States. We’re proud that the NRA Publications staff–comprised of some of the most experienced and respected media members in our community–have recognized it as the game-changing optic that it is.”

Featuring an incredibly compact and revolutionary new design that is easy to conceal, the DP-Micro mounts directly to the rear sight dovetail and sits at the same height as factory iron sights. The red dot aligns with the front sight, delivering rapid target acquisition and improved accuracy. Launch-day models will fit all non-MOS Glock® models and the Smith & Wesson® M&P® line of handguns.

The DP-Micro features Leupold’s Professional-Grade Optical System, which provides unmatched light transmission, industry-leading glare reduction for a clear image in harsh, direct light, and the resolution and clarity that professional shooters demand in the field. Crystal-clear lenses eliminate distortion and color inconsistency. The red dot mounts quickly and easily to the factory rear sight dovetail for co-witnessing the front sight, and eliminating the need for aftermarket rear iron sights.

The DeltaPoint Micro is waterproof, fogproof, and guaranteed to perform for life. It is proudly designed, machined, and assembled in the United States.
