good, not great

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, SD Written on June 4, 2013
Good product but the red dot was to big and almost too bright, I ended up putting it on my pistol grip shotgun for real close range home defense. Still, well build and solid though.
Always cheaper than anywhere else on this site.
Pros: durable, very adjustable
Cons: red dot to big, has glare...
Would recommend: Yes

You get a bit more than what you pay for

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, MD Written on November 24, 2012
Let's be honest here. Everyone is interested in cheap optics because... well... they're cheap. Reviews are always a hit or miss with these things, and the inclination seems to be to just buy something beyond your means and be done with it (if only most people were afforded that luxury). But who doesn't want an affordable optic that approaches the performance of higher priced alternatives but at a fraction of the cost?

Like many of you I'm sure, I was initially drawn to this optic due to it's price and it's unique appearance. But the real question is can it be relied upon to perform without any issues? My initial impression pulling it out of the box was that it appeared to be a very well constructed optic. The on/off and brightness/color adjustment turret turns with a very solid, very positive click. You have the option to select between red and green dots depending on your personal preference, with varying brightness settings. The flip-up caps included are decent enough. The only real issue is that the the front end of the scope does not have enough real-estate for the front cap to sit securely. I remedied this by placing a thin strip of gorilla tape around the circumference of the front tube. This allowed for a nice snug fit and now I don't have to worry about losing the front cap if I have to flip it up in a hurry. The two QD mounts work great, and with proper adjustments, it will remain firmly secured to the rails until you need to release them. No issues. The glass is ...

Blurry "dot"

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 9, 2012
The red dot is described as "crisp". I suppose Leapers and I have different understandings of the meaning of "crisp". Blurry, out of focus, amoeba-shaped with smeared streaks... Not what I'd call crisp.

Sure... one could think "the price is low and I shouldn't be holding such a high standard to this product." I don't agree with this. I purchased a Barska reflex sight instead. It has very crisp reticles... all four are perfectly defined and it works well in bright sunlight to a dark room.
Additionally, I found that the red-dot scope presents a lot of obstruction to my field of view. The reflex style sights are way better from this standpoint.
Pros: Inexpensive, mounts were nice, size and form factor were good
Cons: The dot was not "crisp" as per Leapers' description...
Would recommend: No

Very Pleased

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, VA Written on October 14, 2011
I'm very pleased with this dot sight! I put it on a dedicated .22 AR-15 and it performs flawlessly. The sight maintained perfect zero after removing and replacing it via the quick detatch lever.
The green dot is much brighter than the red dot and is actually a little too bright for dusk or overcast days appearing to "bleed" across the sight picture. I haven't tried it on a bright sunny day, but I'm sure the green will be ideal for such conditions.
I'm not sure about the windage adjustment, but the elevation adjustment direction arrow is backwards from the statndard scope convention that indicates the direction the POI will move with adjustment (my guess is that this sight indicates the direction the POA, or dot, is moved with adjustment).
My friend also tried a few shots with it on his SIG 556 with no negative effects.
Pros: Value, brightness, features
Cons: Dot adjustment backwards...
Would recommend: Yes
