Too low to co-witness

by Chico, from United States, GA Written on July 17, 2014
This optic doesn't come with a riser, so it's too low to use on an AR-15 if you're going to co-witness with iron sights. There is a simple solution though ... buy a 1/2 inch riser. See item number YHM-WS-YHM-234 on this site. Also, the automatic on/off function can be good and bad. If you're in low light, the dot won't come on, or it's really, really dim if it does come on. Still, it's nice not to have to turn it on and off, and it works really well in average to bright light. Overall it's a really good red dot optic for the price. I put my First Strike on a 300 blackout AR, and with the 1/2 inch riser it works great. I would recommend this optic to a friend for a CQB rifle.

Pros: light-weight, small, easy to co-witness with iron sights, inexpensive, don't have to remember to turn it off.

Cons: 1/2 inch riser not included, doesn't work in low light....
Would recommend: Yes

Good economical Red Dot

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, FL Written on November 22, 2013
Its very low profiled so if you use it on an AR, be sure to get a riser so you dont mess your neck up. Also it doesnt have an off button, it shuts off based on darkness. All in all, its a great small profile redot that wont clutter up your rail of add much weight.
Pros: Price, features, profile
Cons: no off button...
Would recommend: Yes

uses a photo sensor to control brightness, would prefer to have an off switch, put it on my pump 12 for home defense, have not had time to sight in in.seems it will be easy to use for CQB with both eyes open
Pros: quick mindless operation
Cons: would prfer to be able to shut it off...
Would recommend: Yes
