Sightmark debuted a new reflex sight, the Volta, bringing a solar-powered 2-MOA red dot to its optics lineup.

Powered by solar cells located on the top of the optic’s housing, the Volta offers uninterrupted operation. Equipped with two AAA batteries, the solar setup is set to automatically kick in when the batteries run out.

“Volta red dots provide users the choice of which power source works best for their situation,” the company said in a news release. “In fact, the Volta can be run off pure solar power without any batteries at all – literally infinite daylight use!”

The Volta sports the Eclipse Light Management System which automatically adjusts reticle brightness based on ambient light. The red dot offers 1/2 MOA adjustments and easily tackles an array of shooting situations and varying distances, according to Sightmark. The Volta offers single-side access to windage and elevation, unlimited eye relief, Digital switch brightness, and an adjustable mount height.

Additionally, the red dot sports a covered design that brings more durability to the table as well as introducing a shock-proof design. The lens itself is scratch-resistant and delivers an anti-reflective coating. Operating temperatures, according to Sightmark, measure between -22 and 122 degrees Fahrenheit.

A rubber cover and low Picatinny mount accompany the Volta as does Sightmark’s Lifetime Warranty. No word yet on pricing or availability.
