THE GOOD: This is a cost effective, lightweight, slide mountable red dot that fosters quick acquistion and micro adjustability. THE BAD: I question the mount design, regardless of what it will be mounted on because the sight is not supported across the entire length. It is held in place and supported entirely by the dovetail mount itself (assuming you are using a dovetail mount setup). This may not be a problem, unless, as in my case, one opts to have their slide milled to accommodate one of the few special mount designs available. I have a S&W 9mm 1911 with a proprietory dovetail that had to be milled to accept the Novak mount. It should have been very straight forward, but I ended up having to install a set screw in the dovetail mount to keep it secure (not a generally recommended procedure). If you are willing to go to the extreme of having your slide milled to accommodate this site, I recommend you have the mount drilled for 2 set screws from the beginning. I found the dot to be very bright, and even too bright for dimly lit ranges, otherwise fine for outdoor use. This is easily remedied by putting a piece of tape (that does not allow light through) over the light sensor on the front. I think that is what causes the dot to appear blurry to some. THE UGLY: The plastic that this sight is made can be discolored or destroyed with some solvents. Extreme care must be taken to insure that you do not get solvent, especially those like Gunscrubber, on the sight or cover. If you understand the limitations in advance, I believe that the utility value and price make the sight worthwhile. I don't consider this to be a good choice for defensive purposes. It will not holster well, and the on/off switch (a limitation in itself for a defensive gun) is oriented laterally rather than vertically. You can inadvertently turn it off by just racking the slide in a hurry. All considered I like it, and will continue to use it on my range gun, especially after the gunsmithing I've already had done.
