I was loooking for a lightweight red dot sight for rifle and pistol use, and this is by far the best I could find. I own EOTech sights for rifles, Burris Speed Bead for my shotgun, a Luepold pistol scope on a .44Mag,and many, many other cheaper sights which are bigger, heavier and don't hold their zero, require Allen Wrenches to adjust, or are just too big for pistol use prectically. This Aimpoint H-1 (2 MOA) is as perfect and high quality a scope for both rifle and pistol use as I could imagine. At over $500, it is pricey, but I expect to use this for a lifetime and as much as I spend on firearms, this is what makes them work best for me. At 60 years of age, I just cannot see most pistol iron sights well enough any more, and this sight makes a huge difference - especially hunting small game! The reticle brightness settings are terrific, the durability and waterproofing makes it great for hunting use, and the size is about perfect. I couldn't be happier with it.
Pros: Small, lightweight, accurate and holds zero, rifle or pistol, waterproof, very bright reticle, long battery life, durable, easy to adjust.
Cons: Pricey, but worth it as there is nothing comparable.
