The ruggedness, ease of setup, and battery life set the standard for red dots. The included mount co-witnesses AR sights out of the box and includes a quick-release ratchet mount which can be removed easily with no tools, but won't let you over-tighten. You can also remove the mount spacer, and have a low-profile mount. Includes flip-up caps, a nice touch.
The only con, there are fewer brightness settings than other AimPoint models, though the included ones are more than adequate for both indoor and outdoor range use.
For my needs - civilian recreation & competition - this is the best sight of this style for the money.
Pros: Best value for the money
Cons: Limited number of brightness settings
