Vortex Optics introduces the Defender-ST, its newest micro red dot. The new Defender shares many similarities with the smaller Defender-CCW but features the larger delta point footprint. This new model isn’t limited to handguns; it’s also a great option for shotguns and can serve as an offset sight when used in conjunction with an LPVO. Let’s explore what the Defender-ST has to offer.

Constructed from 7075 Aluminum, the Defender-ST boasts a robust build quality capable of withstanding the rigors of everyday use. The ST model incorporates Vortex’s Fast-Rack system, offering a 6-MOA or 3-MOA dot, 8 brightness settings, 2 night vision settings, and a motion-activated red dot. The Defender-ST operates on a 2032 battery, which is top-loaded for easy replacement without removing the optic.

Here’s the product description of the Defender-ST from Vortex Optics:
