A nice sight for the right price

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on February 4, 2013
I purchased this from my Remington 870. It is a nice red dot sight. The 10 position brightness allows me to see the dot in any light conditions.

The only complaints I have is that because of the location of the dial I had to take off my iron sight before mounting.

I find that the low profile, while good for accuracy, is too low for me to get a comfortable aim.

While I am happy with it for the price I might have been better server spending more money and getting something on a higher mount.
Pros: Bright dot, long battery life
Cons: Dial location...
Would recommend: Yes

Solid....so far.

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on April 24, 2012
I have this mounted on my WASR-10 and after a trip to the range, I must say that I'm pleased. It's secured to a UTG quad-rail and doesn't add much weight to the front of the rifle. There is a small gap between the end of the rail and the rear peep sights and it allows you to replace the battery without removing the optic itself. I'm not sure why ATN thought that it was a good idea to place the battery compartment there but there are ways around it. I'm a former Marine Corp Rifleman and I must admit, my AK is not as accurate as what I am used to with an A4, but with this it was pretty close. I really like the circle and dot reticle the most and the zero stayed the same on all of the settings. I wouldn't take this to war though, maybe because I was spoiled with that ACOG....You'd have to expect a noticeable difference between an $80 red dot and something from Trijicon but it's pretty solid. There is ALOT of glare with this thing, even on an indoor range that was pretty dim. All in all it's solid for the range or to experiment to figure out whether or not you'll like a red dot or prefer a traditional scope. I'll eventually update to a PK-AS now that I know that I'm comfortable with red dots.
Pros: Easy to mount, light-weight , and attractive. It's a good entry-level sight.
Cons: Why would you make it so you'd have to remove the optic to replace the battery? WHY? WHY again?...
Would recommend: Yes

Beats BSA Hands Down

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CA Written on April 18, 2012
I bought this ATN and a BSA and the BSA failed (shorted after shooting only 20 rds 5.56mm). Got a replacement and failed after maybe 75 rounds. Returned and got another ATN- Both have over 800 rds and still going strong. Cannot trust BSA.
Pros: Bright, Accurate, Not Expensive
Cons: A Little too long...
Would recommend: Yes

Excellent sight - best buy

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WI Written on March 18, 2012
I've used several red dot/reflex sights and I am sick and tired of reading reviews by children who play airsoft. Please, if you play airsoft, feel free not to comment on how this or that works on your toy. This web sight is for shooters who use firearms. Getting that out of the way, the distance between the laser and the crystal matters because the additional millimeters mean the "dot" will move less and naturally encourage you to shoot from the same spot every time. This means the sight will help beginner shooters to sight-in more consistently, placing their cheek bone and nose in the same position for every shot - thus making the shooter more accurate overall. I highly encourage anyone looking for a reliable reflex sight (that isn't more than $200) to spend the extra money to purchase this model or one from ATN. Take it or leave it - I've used this sight for more than four years and haven't had to replace the batteries yet. I can stand and shoot at targets distant to 50 meters with a four inch Circular error probability (meaning the shots will end up hitting within a 4 inch diameter) using the two-eye shooting technique in rapid succession (6 shots/30 seconds from a standing position).
Pros: sight picture, accuracy, brightness, battery life, fitting.
Cons: screws used to tighten sight onto rail need to be thumb screws...

Not thrilled

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on January 14, 2012
I bought this and a BSA red dot, the BSA was 35 and much brighter, the ATN you can barely see the reticle regardless of setting.

Pros: East to set up
Cons: Not bright enough...
Would recommend: No

Don't buy

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, AL Written on December 10, 2011
The battery compartment could not be screwed back on. Optics Planet passed the ball to ATN with no concern for my problem. Never got a reply from ATN. Would not recommend either the sight or the Optics Planet customer service.
Pros: None
Cons: Battery compartment won't hold. Unusable after the first need for battery....
Would recommend: No

You get what you pay for

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on December 31, 2009
Windage set screw was rounded out when I opened the box.....returned this sight after contemplating replacing the set screw or the sight itself. Nah, this was planned for my Ruger Mk3 hunter. The rear sight is too tall to mount this sight. So with a little disassembly of the rear sight, I got it on. The battery case is large (5-6 mm) enough to create similar mounting problems with other handguns. A friend recommended the NC Star red dot. After I saw how fuzzy the reticles are at 16-20 inches (depending on how long your arm is) I wasn't gonna spend what it takes to get a nice red dot. Nah...For $120 I bought a Simmons ProHunter pistol scope (28mm 2-6x 20 inches of eye relief W/ALL POWERS) FYI the Simmons doesn't come with rings.
Pros: Cheap, large sight picure, 4 reticle choices, nice finish
Cons: quality control, cheap reticle, rear of sight hangs down aprox. 5-6 mm...
Would recommend: Yes

ATN Ultra Sight Red Dot Reflex Sight DTRXULSTM

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, GA Written on December 10, 2009
i've had trouble with off brand red dots before- loosing their zero, stripping mounting bolts threads and unreliable battery connections. This scope is built to last. Besides, no need for loosening any "locking" bolts for zero adjustment- they are designed just like a regular scope. The screen is bigger than other reflex sights, which adds to the ease of opperation.
Pros: big display, easy to zero, uses common battery, reliable
Cons: no automatic brightness adjstment...
