Constructed of 7075 aluminum, the E7 is designed to endure the torture of various platforms. Likewise, with an IPX7 waterproof rating, the optic can withstand submersion in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes and still operate. As a result, the E7 can handle rugged environments and hard use.

Utilizing the ACRO (Advanced Compact Reflex Optic) mounting system, the E7 is designed to withstand intense G-force shock, vibration, and temperature changes. Likewise, it can handle material stress generated by firing over 20,000 rounds of .40 S&W ammunition. Although it is at home as a primary handgun optic, it also makes its home on defensive carbines and shotguns.

Utilizing a high-efficiency LED emitter providing a sharp M5 reticle, the E7 boasts the first BLUE reticle on a reflex sight. The reticle utilizes a 3 MOA dot inside a three-quarter inverted circle and sighting wedges leading to it. According to the company, this reticle geometry promises 30% faster target acquisition.

As with all Lucid Optics reflex sights, the E7 is operationally parallax-free. As a result, with proper zero, the reticle is always “on target,” regardless of your eye’s angle to the FOV. Likewise, the E7 provides a 60-foot field of view at 100 yards.

The reticle features windage and elevation adjustments with a range of 90 MOA each. Additionally, operating on a single CR2032 battery, the E7 delivers up to 50,000 hours of operation. Correspondingly, an auto-off function helps to preserve battery life, while the shake awake function activates it when needed.
