excellent optic

by Mike, from United States, NC Written on March 17, 2015
i found the price at Optics Planet.com to be the best. The shipping was ultra fast. The Lucid optic is clear, rugged, and holds zero. it uses a common AAA battery which is / will be easy to find if push comes to shove. An outstanding optic in it's price range. I bought two....

Great Value!

by Imperial, from United States, CA Written on March 13, 2015
I literally have every optic Lucid offers in their current catalog simply because they are a great value for the money. Each optic has a multitude of value added features which may include, but are not limited to, light sensors, capped turrets, the ability to use standard household batteries and my favorite on the HD7, the ability to change reticles without ever losing my zero....

Great RDS for the $

by Dave, from United States, FL Written on March 3, 2015
I read the reviews, saw the Youtube videos, and thought I would give it a try. I can't add anything more to the already great reviews. This is a very rugged, easy to use, easy to install RDS. The price seems just right, especially given the robustness of the build. However, I did not buy the magnifier or the kill flash accessory because they are a bit too pricey. The AAA battery means that I won't have to be scrounging for an atypical specialty battery in an emergency - AAA's are everywhere. I installed it very easily on my Sig 556 after I switched the screws to the opposite side. The flat dark earth covering perfectly matches the OD furniture on the rifle (so that means either my furniture is actually FDE or the sight's cover is actually OD). There is also a certain tacticool aspect to the ACOG shape of the housing. Most other sights of this quality are much more expensive....
Pros:
  • rugged construction
  • reasonable price.
  • astetics
  • Easy to use & operate
Cons:
  • Accessories are expensive.
Best Used for:
  • Law Enforcment
  • Combat and competition
  • Self-defense, sport, novelty
  • Tactical use

Best RDS for the Price!!

by Travis Mattera, from United States, PA Written on March 3, 2015
I will be honest...I was worried after I ordered my HD7. I read some negative reviews about returns to Lucid and prayed for no issues. To be clear, I was not worried about returning within 30 days to OP as this is not an issue. And then I received my HD7 for my M&P 15-22 and couldn't be happier. This thing is built like a tank and mounting was extremely easy. I hand tightened the mounting nuts and the sight does not budge, at all. The auto brightness feature is very nice, it changes on the fly with light changes where some others I have used there is a slight delay. The glass is amazingly clear and the reticles, to me, were very, very crisp and defined. Again, for me, the FOV was great despite the 21mm ocular lens. I could easily get on target with both eyes open and see my surroundings clearly. The weight is not bad as I mounted the optic over the center of my rifle (above mag well and discharge port) and it is very well balanced. I'm not sure about reports of lower 1/3 co-witness as with my 15-22 I have absolute co-witness with front and rear Magpul BUIS. This was not an issue for me and works out well. I would definitely recommend a lithium battery (I bought Energizer Advanced Lithium), and this is why. I read some reviews about battery corrosion and how this is not covered by Lucid's warranty, though I agree with founder Jason Wilson that it should not be because this is not an optic issue. However, Energizer's lithium batteries are guaranteed not to leak, and if they do ...

Lucid HD7 Gen III

by Smittypip, from United States, OH Written on March 1, 2015
Good quality red dot sight for the money. Did notice that the covers for adjustments were scratched and covered with black marker from the factory on both sights that i ordered. It was a toss up between this one and the Vortex....
Pros:
  • easy to use.
  • like the automatic adjustment for lighting conditions
  • 4 different reticles.
Cons:
  • Scratched covers
  • Would have liked the ability to switch from green to red.

Lucid HD7 Generation III Red Dot Sight

by BEAR, from United States, TX Written on February 28, 2015
The Lucid HD7 Generation III Red Dot Sight has multiple reticles that are easily changed and hold a pretty good zero with previous sight reticle used.
Mount is solid and co witness is 1/3 low. works fine. Used on 458 Socom and 5.56. Only reason for not giving five stars is the Emitter is protruding quite a bit in the sight picture but is not to difficult to ignore with practice.I hear it disappears if the screw in magnifier is used. For the price it seems this is a great deal....

Lucid HD7 Red Dot

by Hooch, from United States, ID Written on February 27, 2015
Good clarity and great reticles. Shifting reticles requires some care to ensure seating of the dial and zero. With care, this is a very accurate unit. Really like the choices between manual brightness and light sensor. Strong optic with good armor. Overall good optic....

Good Price

by AGE315, from United States, CO Written on February 23, 2015
I was looking for something not to expensive but wasn't just a red dot. Put the 2x magnifier on it and so far I have no complaints. Easy to zero and I like the rubberized finish. It's not an Aimpoint but it's a good sight for a descent price....
Pros:
  • Nice finish
  • battery life is good
  • easy to zero and to operate
Cons:
  • None

lucid HD7 Gen III

by RQ, from United States, FL Written on January 31, 2015
Definitely a quality Red dot scope. It's a great value for the price. It was very easy to sight. Just a couple clicks to get it zeroed at 100 ft. I also purchased the x2 magnifier and kill flash, Both Items are a plus. Great job!...

Lucid HD7 Gen III From opticsplanet.com

by addfour, from United States, VT Written on January 31, 2015
I bought this for my AR and I got to tell you, It was worth it. The multi- reticle a are great for different kinds of shooting, and all are accurate. I sighted mine in recently and afterward I was hitting 6" gongs from 88 yds standing. (That's good for me.) I also bought the 2x screw in magnifier separately. For $35 I found it really worth it. It's really helpful at the range for 50+yds, but probable not very practical in any tactical/ combat situation. (It takes a minute to screw it in.)
This red dot is 100% co-witness for my Smith & Wesson M&P 15. I think Lucid makes a lower 1/3 co-witness mount attachment for it. I know they have a quick detach mount for it. Working the controls is easy once you've read the manual once. Working the controls is pretty user friendly.
I prefer he manual brightness as opposed to the auto-adjusting. I find the auto is kind of dim, but I like my dots bright. It is a heavier red dot, and it's also kind of bulky. This doesn't bother me at all, but I mention it for those who it might. It doesn't have the click value etched in the turrets. Again these things are not cons at all, just notable mentions.
Overall, this is an accurate, rugged red dot sight that is great great for AR's. I love the looks, durability, and features. It was exactly what I wanted for my rifle. If you want to see a good review on it, check out the Military Arms Channel on YouTube. He tests everything about it. He even submerses it in a bowl of water....
Pros:
  • rugged construction
  • great features
  • accurate,holds zero,crisp clear image
Cons:
  • I don't have any with it
Best Used for:
  • AR15
