Looks Great wont hold zero

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on April 1, 2013
Here are the facts:
Optics planet states a switch is required in there notes bust a rail switch comes withe the laser. But because of that I ordered one.
Day one SIG 516 rail mounter underneath.
Laser keeps moving in the housing at first I thought is was the mount but after tightening so much and it kept moving I finally striped the short provided screw. To the hardware store longer screws worked much better great firm hold on rail.
Day 2 switch failed tested with ohm meter and it was bad. Replaced with other switch I had ordered and back in action. Sighted in perfect bright sunny day 15 yds great visibility 25 yds good visibility. First 3 shots perfect next 2 laser moved in scope field of view. Scope still on laser off. Spent over 2 hours trying to get it to stay but every time I would fire a few rds it would move again. Sending it back to aimshot.

Pros: Good visibility
Cons: Won't hold zero...
Would recommend: No

Difficult to Adjust

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 22, 2013
The unit uses a 4-setscrew arrangement (N-S-E-W) with small setscrews requiring a tiny allen wrench. Zeroing is a real pain, requiring many itterations of miniscule adjustments. And that is compounded if the unit is not mounted exactly vertical or horizontal (as in my case). The beam is bright, though in full sunlight it is difficult to see past 20-25 meters. I also had to order a replacement pressure switch after about 3 weeks, but the second switch has been working well for over 6 months.
Pros: Bright. Holds zero
Cons: Very difficult to adjust...
Would recommend: Yes

Laser

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on March 7, 2013
Since the laser doesn't come with instructions on adjusting it; I called the Aimshot "technical" dept.. The person i spoke with couldn't tell me how to aim it ! Had to take a trial and error approach to figure it out. Perhaps I should call Aimshot and instruct them on how to handle their product ! Optics Planet rocks ! Great service and good prices.
Pros: Very bright, able to see dot in daylight out to 60+ yards. Holds zero.
Cons: Adjustments not easily madeas with Crimson Trace products. Laser does not come with instructions , very irritating !...
Would recommend: Yes

aimshot green laser review

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on June 5, 2011
after adjusting (aiming) the laser it stopped working. I thought it might be a faulty switch or have something to do with the battery cap, though I did not touch it. I managed to get it working though I do not not exactly what I did to make it work. This happened the two times a adjusted the laser.
Pros: very bright, able to see outside during day...
Would recommend: Yes

Bright. Straight. Easy.

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on April 28, 2011
the only thing i didn't like was the fact that the user MUST use a pressure pad to activate the laser. it's a decent pressure pad but i'd like the option to have a button on the end. Great quality throughout and VERY bright.
Pros: Bright.
Cons: must use pressure pad....
Would recommend: Yes

Laser Good, On/Off Switch Pad BAD

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 2, 2011
The laser is fine. I have had to re-order 2 different cord on/off switches. They are poorly made and didn't work. Settled for the push button switch which doubles as the end cap for the laser unit. This switch is less practical and doesn't feature the "momentary" function.
OpticsPlanet was great, as usual, helping me through this problem...A+ to them.
Pros: Good laser, very bright.
Cons: Straight cord pad awitch terrible...
Would recommend: No
