Great on my Mini-14

by Don, from United States, OR Written on September 15, 2014
Have two stainless Ruger Mini-14's one older with folding stock, one new carbine they both have an XTS-135. The sight works great for me fast, easy zero, clear and have held solid for 400-500 rounds each and they make me look like a much better shot than I actually am. Still surprised at how well they work for such a low price. And I really appreciate the fast/durable lens caps, have never had one open even banging around. Would buy another. Still on first batteries after about two years....
Pros:
  • Clear optics
  • Solid contruction
  • Holds zero
Cons:
  • None
Would recommend: Yes

Love mine too

by Fastman, from United States, TX Written on August 22, 2014
I bought this sight on sale from another sight/retailer/parts company for $70.00 less than advertised here and approximately 3-4 years ago.I immediately mounted it to my DPMS O.R. Carbine and only had to add a small riser section to get it where my eyes need it. I LOVE this thing, I researched and looked at every other sight from ACOG to Aimpoint and EOtech and found this to be not only far lower in price but equal to or better in quality,visibility and ease of use. I took it to the range and zeroed it without any real problems. I had to first honor the process and find the ammo my particular rifle "likes" and then start actually "zeroing". I am an Instructor to civilian,Security and Law Enforcement with over 30+ years of Instructing experience so I realize that zeroing any rifle/optics types is not a "throw it on and it will work" deal, and really; I find the process of getting behind the rifle with various ammo choices is the fun!
The clicks for adjustment of both windage and elevation are positive and hold zero. Once I found the right ammo and took the time to compensate for the barrel/sight "offset"; it zeroed and has stayed in place with only minor tweaking if the sessions are farther apart than 60 days. I do not now (or when mounted) did I expect this red dot sight to work like a precision scope at 200 yards. I know that is NOT its purpose. I am consistently able to hit an NRA "tombstone" target with shoot n see overlay and cover the group of 30 or more rounds with ...

Burris Red Dot

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CO Written on August 25, 2011
Mounted this on my RRA LAR-PDS 5.56 and took it to the range. It was a pain to Zero then after about 50 rounds the dot would disapear after each shot and either return a couple minutes later or I would have to change the setting for it to come back. Then it lost zero after about 100 more rounds. Couldn't return it either (guess optics planet 100% guarantee is bogus) Would not reccomend optics planet or Burris.
Pros: None
Cons: Lost Zero, Red Dot is very fuzzy, Red Dot disappears...
Would recommend: No

Awesome red dot

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, AZ Written on August 8, 2011
extremly well made red dot. No problems what so ever so far. Have been using for over a month now and I am in law enforcement so it gets banged around and abused alot while working I would say comparable to aimpoint so far but alot less money. I have tried the vortex strikefire and this beats it hands down.
Pros: brigthness of dot, ruggedness
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes

very nice red dot for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TN Written on July 18, 2011
This sight is installed on a .22lr AR-15. It is very well suited to this application. I do however wish the dot was just a little smaller to make precision shooting a little easier. The dot is bright enough for all but the brightest conditions. Overall I am very pleased with the sight and would recommend it.
Pros: well made, bright, clear
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes

Disappointed...

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CA Written on March 29, 2011
I purchased this red dot scope with a Kalinka PK-01V AK Side Mount for my Saiga 7.62x39 Rifle and I am very disappointed. The red dot itself is very...very poor. On medium settings, the dot looks like a scribbled, crooked, lopsided capital lettered I. Its nowhere near a dot. For $250, it could at least have an acceptable red dot. But not a scribbled line. Maybe the one I received was defective, I honestly can not tell you. But I would definitely stay away from it.
Pros: Solid Design
Cons: Very Poor Red Dot...
Would recommend: No

When I began looking for an optic for my new AR-15 carbine I wanted something that was tough, affordable, and would work as it should without being the same price as the gun it was on. The Burris XTS-135 more than fills those roles. I have had real life exerience with other brands such as Aimpoint and Trijicon ACOG's serving as a Corpsman with the Marines overseas. Those sights are great BUT with saying so they do not have a great price. Ok now with the Burris pros and cons. Sight mounted easy, DOT was bright and very round now as in every red dot it took a little time for my eye to adjust but now its clear every time pull up and sight in. It was easy to sight in and was very precise given it is a RED Dot that is not ment to be a precise sight. Thus far the brightness setting seem good for most light conditions but with any red dot on Very Bright days may wash out. The first day i put over a hundred rounds of 5.56 through the gun and it held Zero just fine now time will tell if it holds after long periods of sitting. Does come with flip-up dust cover tho they seem a little cheap it is very nice to include in the price. The only con was the battery its a small flat watch battery that as we all know is not as common or cheap as we all would like. It's a great sight well worth the 200 bucks.
Pros: Price, Value, Usability
Cons: battery...
Would recommend: Yes
