Ade Advanced Optics RD3-028 ARES PRO Motion Awake with Weather Shield for Optics Ready Pistol Slide/

ADE is releasing the 2023 Pro Series for ADE Advanced Optics RD3 series that fits a variety of popular optic footprints on the market. The additional features that the Pro series includes are Multi Reticle Technology in selective models, Motion Awake System, and a new cosmetic redesign by ADE in Oregon City, Oregon.

Motion Activation

ADE RD3-028 Ares Pro is equipped with the Motion Activated System. While the Ares Pro is turned on, the red dot illumination goes to sleep after five minutes of inactivity, but when any motion or vibration is detected, it instantly switches on illumination at the previous brightness setting. Users also have the option to manually turn the red dot power off to disable the Motion Activated System.


The overall length is longer than a traditional red dot, therefore it only fits on the optic plate that sits above the slide, typically the plates replacing the rear sight. It does not sit into a pistol slide with a milled optic cut because those cuts are typically made for red dots with standard length. 

Weather Protection

ADE RD3-028 Ares Pro is designed with a removable Weather Shield that protects the sight from moisture and provides a clearer sight picture during inclement weather. Once installed the weather shield will protect from rain or snow and will stay attached even when mounted on a handgun.

Functional Features
