Shield Sights Announces the RMS-C For Compact Pistols

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

For Immediate Release – Dorset, England, U.K. – Shield Sights is pleased to announce the release and full production of the RMS-C.  The RMS-C is a compact variation of the RMS that has been specifically designed to be a perfect fit on sub-compact or slim frame pistols.


The RMS-C is an answer to the rising demand for red dot sights on compact EDC pistols.  Until now there has never been a red dot sight that maintains full functionality in a slim and aesthetically pleasing package for sub-compact pistols like the Glock 43 and Smith & Wesson Shield.


“After years of declaring that we make the smallest sights we noticed a space that was not being serviced by anyone. Brought to our attention because the customer base was now happy to mount the RMS on to sub compact pistols and accept the sight overhanging the slide, this was not acceptable to Shield so we set the task of miniaturising our RMS to fit the century old 1911/2011 slides, Glock 43’s, Smith & Wesson Shield’s and other single stack pistol slides.”


The RMS-C has the same bolt pattern as the original SMS/RMS so users with slides already cut for the RMS can easily swap sights if they choose to.


– The RMS-C is machined from strong aerospace grade aluminium.
– Very fast automatic brightness adjustment
– No overhang on G43 or S&W Shield
– Very low profile to Co-Witness standard iron sights
– 2-3 year average battery life with standard CR2032 battery
– Weight: 17 grams / .60 ounces battery included

The RMS-C is available with the option of 4 MOA or 8 MOA dots with an MSRP of $430.

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016


Dorset, England – October 5th, 2016 – Shield Sights is pleased to announce the RMS (Reflex Mini Sight) has now entered full production and has begun shipping to customers around the world.


The Shield RMS is next evolution in mini red dots. Small enough to fit discreetly on any pistol, rifle, or shotgun. The RMS is tough enough to withstand the harshest recoil and light enough that you won’t even feel it’s there. Its light weight and rugged construction combined with its, low profile design makes the RMS an ideal optic for any custom pistol build. The RMS coupled with our matching low profile Glock MOS plate, the RMS sits low enough to co-witness your standard height sights without the need for elevated suppressor sights.


“The RMS is an update to a modern classic.” said James White. “For 20 years we have been building the world’s smallest mini red dot sights some of which you may know as the SMS, J-Point, Trijicon Red-dot, and others.”
