I chose this sight for its reputation and solid construction. I just retired from the USMC and knew, firsthand, Marines who trusted their lives to it. I like the sight but be prepared for the reticle. The EOTech website (and all the combat games) show it as a solid circle/dot but it actually appears to be made of tiny laser lines/dots that together form the reticle. This becomes very evident when on max brightness in a lower light level environment. This hasn't been too big of an issue for me but it almost necessitates a both eyes open technique to reduce your focus on the reticle. This is what it is designed for so I don't consider it a negative. Another nitpick is the fact that it always turns on to the same level of brightness. I find that I use this mostly in full daylight and always have to adjust the brightness back up to my previous selected level. Not a huge issue but I would prefer that it remembered my last selection. Others may not since it may be a day/night sight for them and it gives a good middle point to adjust from consistently. My last comment is that the model I purchased has the controls mounted on the rear (vice the side for newer models) and my flip up BUIS gets in the way when it is mounted at the back of my rail. I ended up moving it a couple slots forward and no problems since eye relief is not a concern with this sight. The windage and elevation adjustments are easy and click positively. This is a great sight. Now I just need a set of NVGs to make the extra expense worthwhile. I would buy this sight again.
