Steiner MPS Approved for Duty by Kansas Highway Patrol
Greeley, CO – Steiner, the leader in high-performance optics for military and law enforcement, expands its approved-for-duty-use status adding Kansas Highway Patrol as the latest LE department using the MPS (Micro Pistol Sight).
After rigorous testing and evaluation, the Kansas Highway Patrol approved the MPS for duty use. This status is only granted to products that offer the maximum in reliability and consistency when trooper lives are on the line.
The Steiner MPS is a micro red dot purpose-built to withstand the hard use and challenging field conditions encountered by defense professionals across the nation. Borrowing the same performance and battle-proven engineering found in Steiner’s tactical optics for military and law enforcement, the MPS is constructed around a rugged, all-metal housing with enhanced sidewalls and a sealed emitter that can withstand submersion down to 10 meters.
In addition to its compact size and light weight, the MPS is packed with features that ensure reliability and predictable performance for hard-duty use. The recessed optic window and thick metal shroud protects the Steiner-quality lens from most direct impacts and the 1X magnification delivers a crisp, undistorted image for quick, both-eyes-open sight picture acquisition. Additional features include a bright 3.3 MOA reticle, 13,000-hour battery life, 8 brightness levels, user-selectable auto-off, and multiple mounting options.
