    Springfield Armory HEX optic

    This is new to me:

    https://www.theoutdoorwire.com/relea...QsPK22qDRhXG-g

    "GENESEO, ILL. – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the new HEX™ line of optics, designed to deliver a higher standard of performance and superior optical support for handguns and long guns. The two new HEX optics offer intuitive target acquisition, faster follow-up shots and every-day dependability."

    Just because it "feels good", doesn't mean it's best.

    Any idea if they make it or have it made by an existing player under their name?
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    Do they use an existing footprint or yet another “unique snowflake” footprint ?

    I’m pretty sure the smaller one (Wasp) uses the Shield RMSc footprint. I’m not sure about the bigger one (Dragonfly).

    From hex optics.com, referencing the Dragonfly:
    “The most widely used footprint, the Springfield Standard™ Footprint provides a secure foundation and is compatible with a wide array of aftermarket mounts and accessories. (Vortex® Venom® / Burris® Fastfire™)”

    The “Springfield Standard,” that clears up all the confusion.

    I would not lay money on the former, but rather the latter. $100.
