Vortex’s New Defender-ST Micro Red Dot Sight

Vortex Defender-ST Micro Red Dot

Vortex introduced their first micro red dot sight last year, the Defender-CCW. The 3 MOA dot was designed for micro compact carry guns. Now Vortex is expanding the Defender line with the larger, more robustly built Defender-ST.

Vortex bills the Defender-ST as red dot for all of your guns. It’s larger than the Defender-ST, gives you the choice of a 3 MOA or 6 MOA dot, and has an aspherical glass lens where the Defender-CCW’s lens is polymer. The Defender-ST also uses the DeltaPoint Pro mount as opposed to the smaller Defender-CCW’s RMSc mount.

Struggling to find a red dot that works great on all your guns? Vortex hears you. That’s why we’re excited to introduce the new Defender-ST. It’s the new all-purpose micro red dot designed for everything–from your handgun to your shotgun, paired up with a carbine, or piggybacked on your AR’s LPVO. 

Whether running drills at the range or meeting the demands of duty use, the Defender-ST™ is ready when and wherever you are. Rugged and reliable? It’s a given. Large sight window? Absolutely. Motion-activation and a dot with adjustable brightness deliver superior target acquisition, adaptability in all lighting conditions, and faster follow-up shots. Other design benefits include: 

      • 7075 ALUMINUM SIGHT HOUSING for added strength and corrosion resistance 
      • LARGE ASPHERICAL LENS for distortion-free sight picture and truer colors 
      • ADVANCED SHOCKSHIELD™ POLYMER INSERT to protect against hard, daily abuse 
      • FAST-RACK TEXTURED FRONT FACE that adds grip for racking slide 
      • ADJUSTABLE BRIGHTNESS for customizable illumination settings 
      • 10-MINUTE AUTO-SHUTOFF to preserve battery life 
      • MOTION ACTIVATED for instant readiness when you need it 
      • DELTAPOINT PRO FOOTPRINT for versatile mounting on pistols, ARs, and shotguns 
      • 3 or 6 MOA red dot reticles available 

Experience what shooters mean when they discuss the ideal, all-round red dot. With the Defender-ST™ (MSRP: $469.99/MAP: $329.99), you’re not just range-ready, but armored for the toughness and adaptability your world demands.
