Lucid HD7 GenIII red dot site

by Fred, from United States, FL Written on October 22, 2014
I purchased the Lucid HD7 site based on reading dozens of reviews for the Lucid site and many others. I got this one for $189.00. Prices for this site ranged from $160 to $250. The Lucid site is so popular it took over two months to get it on back order. Was it worth all that? Yes, it is worth it. The site clamped securely on my rifle and was easy to calibrate at the range. I have not dropped it off the roof of my house nor have I dropped in to a river to test for water tightness. I don't plan to. So far it has been a great site. I have it sited in for 50 yards which will also put it on center target at 250 yards. Accuracy for a red dot sight is good for 50 to 75 yards on the shoulder and up to 200 yards resting on a mount. Target acquisiton is almost immediate. This is a very good site, and a good value for the money....

Why spend more?

by JRO, from United States, AZ Written on October 20, 2014
I was looking at aimpoint's and eotec's for sometime. I was so close to dropping 500$ then I came across the lucid HD7. After a few YouTube video I was sold. It is a very sold sight with a great price tag. I would buy again....
Best Used for:
  • AR15

awesome for the $$

by bloodsport06, from United States, NE Written on October 17, 2014
Excellent build construction and glass for the money. No weird tint to the glass. You can see the emitter but once you focus on the object you aiming at, it isnt noticable. The rubber coating is awesome. Diff teticle options are nice, esp since it holds zero while switching between them. Uses a standard AAA battery, what else could you ask for under $200!...
Pros:
  • clear glass
  • Warranty
  • Build quality
  • common battery
Cons:
  • can see emitter
Best Used for:
  • hunting
  • Target shooting
Would recommend: Yes

Great Sight

by superman, from United States, IN Written on August 20, 2014
The Lucid HD7 was a great value!! Very easy to mount, comes with everything you need. I thought the FDE was a great color, and matched my FDE AR very well. The sights were very bright and crisp, easy to use controls, and very clear lenses.
This is not magnified, so it was great for targets out to 25 yards or so. Seems to be ruggedly built, and for the price you can't go wrong. OpticsPlanet is for sure the best place to purchase, and I am very happy with mine....

Best Red Dot, OpticsPlanet is the best place to purchase

by Dadof3awesomekids, from United States, ME Written on August 6, 2014
This review is as much about opticsplanet as about the Lucid. The Lucid is the most durable feature rich sight around at this price or higher. Very clear reticle, love the auto or manual brightness option. The reticle options are great. The thing is completely waterproof, very user friendly, easy to get batteries. Yeah maybe you can't leave it on until your kids are in college like an aimpoint, but for $10 you can buy enough batteries to last just as long. Check out some of the in depth gear reviews on this, I did and you won't be disappointed.
Now on to OpticsPlanet, these guys were amazing, I originally ordered something totally different through walmart.com hut from opticsplanet, when I saw they had the lucid I called to change the order, it was very last minute and the representative bent over backwards and went way out of his way to get it done for me, now both the Black and FDE lucids were back ordered so I chose the black, but didn't really care, after a bit over a week I noticed the FDE was in stock, so I called, there were only 5 in stock, but again the representative went above and beyond and changed my order yet again to accommodate me and get my item to me faster. Everyone I dealt with was professional and courteous and went out of their way to be helpful....

lucid hd7 gen3

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, HI Written on March 25, 2014
This optic for the money is the best hands down it is rubber armored has excellent retical features that you dont have to zero in once thats done,the auto brightness works really well ,now for the goodies you can buy a scope coat from lucid which you will want to do once you see the quality of this optic the killflash thats made for this is actually made from high quality aluminum,not polymer and is nicely priced you can also get a screw in 2X magnifier even though I went with a 3X flip to side,this scope also uses AAA batteries,so thats easy and its tough as nails. It might be made in china ,but it is by far one of the best optics out there,and for the price vey hard to beat.
Pros: awesome optic for the money
Cons: made in china...

Outstanding

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MS Written on March 24, 2014
After searching and searching I found this sight. I had anxiety over buying a sight that was cheaper than the high priced sights it was said to contend with. Usually you get what you pay for. In This sight you way more than you pay for. If you have doubts at hit up youth and there are some guys that's can help sell you. I've put this up against an M-68 CCO and everything about the HD-7 beats the CCO. From the knob placements to the multiple reticles to auto off and the auto and manual brightness settings. Everything is better.
Pros: Over all value, functionality...
Would recommend: Yes

Pretty good range gear

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 2, 2014
Decent enough optic for the price. The reticles are crisp and usable (except possibly the inverted "V" one which seems very non-intuitive to me), the view is clear and reasonably bright, and the adjustments are much better than the gen 2 was. I really like that it uses a common AAA battery and the integral mount. The only real complaint I have is that it isn't waterproof. I tightened the battery cover down until I needed pliers to loosen it and then dropped it in about 6 inches of water (alongside an aimpoint pro). An hour later it had a significant amount of water inside the tube (the aimpoint was still dry as a bone). I removed the battery cap with the aid of my pliers and proceeded to empty several teaspoons of water out of the battery compartment. As it sat I was able to periodically drain more water or through the battery compartment until I had most of it out. It still turned on even with the water inside and seemed to work fine but I couldn't guarantee how long it would continue that way. As the title says, it's probably good enough for practice at the range or maybe hunting, but I wouldn't bet my life on this one. Then again, it costs less than half of what the cheapest aimpoint does - I guess this is one case where you get what you pay for.
Pros: Reasonably priced, tough, multiple reticles, uses common battery
Cons: Lens covers difficult to find/fit, NOT WATERPROOF...
Would recommend: Yes
