The dot on mine is really bad. More like a cluster of tiny dots or the "bunch of grapes" effect. It isn't TOO bad up close, but forward mounted (where I want it) looks really bad.
In comparing it to a"decent" $140 red dot that is about 5 years old, there is a big difference in dot quality, and the trs-25 loses. Bad.
I might try for an exchange and hope I get a better unit, but I'm seeing other *recent* reviews (within the last week) saying the same thing.
Maybe something went wrong in production, and what was once an amazing value has gone south?
Pros: Tiny, light weight
Cons: Dot is terrible in the unit I received.
