Have you heard of HEX, Springfield Armory’s own line of optics? It’s a special project to develop superior optical support for firearms. Built from premium materials, all HEX red dots are thoroughly tested and backed by a lifetime warranty. Currently, Springfield offers two sizes in the line, the Dragonfly and Wasp.

During the past few years, I’ve noticed an increase in students using optics on their handguns. Most of the time, when I question them about their change from iron sights to red-dots, I get the same answer: “My eye sight is not as good as it used to be.” OK, fair enough. I get it. I’m at the point where I now have readers at numerous locations around my house, in both cars and at least one or more pairs in my purse. So, when Springfield Armory offered to send me one their new HEX optics, I decided to give it a try.
For those looking for red dot sights for their concealed carry pistols or offset rifle mounting, a direct, low profile mounting HEX Wasp is the way to go. It’s always on, auto-dimming sensor regulates proper dot brightness based on always changing ambient light conditions.
The HEX Wasp is a rugged, reliable companion for your optics ready everyday carry.

For a more versatile red dot sight, perfectly suited for pistol rifle and shotgun applications, look to the HEX Dragonfly. A manual brightness adjustment gives you maximum control.
HEX Dragonfly’s durable, standard size reflex red dot delivers lightning-fast target acquisition which sets you up for faster follow up shots.

I now have a Springfield Armory XD-M Elite 3.8-inch OSP handgun with a HEX Dragonfly mounted on it (MSRP: $818). Once I become a little more familiar with it, and the workings of the optic, I’m going to begin with dry fire practice. That however is for a future article, perhaps even the beginning of a series.
