OK for the money

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on April 9, 2014
The biggest problem with this reflex is that it doesn't shut off completely, even with the cover. As a result, it will kill a battery in what seems like just a few weeks. When I contacted NCSTAR, they said it was normal and that battery shelf life is only a few months. The only way to prevent this is to remove the battery every time, which is not trivial since you have to remove the base. Otherwise, it's been great for the price I paid, but I think I will just pony up for a Burris Fastfire. Better value, in my opinion.
Pros: Compact, cheap.
Cons: Eats batteries....
Would recommend: Yes

1 year heavy use and still working with no issues

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 25, 2014
Had this sight mounted on my Sig 522 for a year now with ZERO issues. Took about 3 minutes to sight in and hasn't moved since. Never had an issue with being able to see dot(always visible) I've read a few negative reviews about this sight but i haven't experienced any issues yet.
Pros: Simple, Compact
Cons: Havn't found any yet...

green dot light never goes out

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 4, 2013
The light sensor does work to turn the brightness up or down, but is claimed to turn off the power when the cap is put on.
The light never turns out in total darkness, even after several hours. It also will not turn off when the sensor is covered with two layers of black electric tape. Drains battery in a month or so.
Pros: small, cheap, looks nice
Cons: hard to zero, green dot does not go out in darkness, drains battery anyway...
Would recommend: No

DGAB - Hit or miss, at least it's got a good warranty...

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on August 16, 2012
I have had this sight for less than a month and the dot began to flicker on and off intermittently; now, a few months later, it has stopped working altogether.
As others have stated, zeroing this sight sucks, but is not impossible.
Overall, if you get one that works, it is really a great sight, but I suppose it's a roll of the dice. Mine is going back to NcStar, but I may end up just selling it and saving up for a Burris or other more dependable sight. Take your chances...
Pros: Inexpensive, compact, easy to use.
Cons: Difficult to zero, durability is ?????...

NcStar Tactical Green Dot Site

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, TX Written on June 19, 2012
Site is very bright in full light conditions, seems to keep a zero very well, and target aquisition is very quick. One complaint would be that if you have to change the battery/reseat the battery, it is difficult to keep in in the site during reattachment to the base. Overall it gets the job done and looks nice.
Pros: Size, automatic operation, automatic brightness
Cons: battery is difficult to keep in site when attaching to base...
Would recommend: Yes

Impossible to keep zero

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on February 10, 2012
Requires tightening two lock screws after zeroing. Alas, tightening the lock screws throws zero WAY off. Not only that, but adjusting windage throws off elevation, and adjusting elevation throws off windage. Very bad design.
Pros: small, green dot
Cons: will not keep zero...
Would recommend: No

I am quite pleased with this product

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on November 2, 2011
Overall, this product will meet your red dot sight needs. When I used it at the range, it was a bit difficult to get zero at first, but became easier as I got the hang of it. Once zero was achieved, it worked very well. The automatic brightness option was also helpful. It lets me see better on the shooting range when the lights are turned down for those wishing to practice with lower light. A good buy for someone wishing to get a good red dot sight without big problems.
Pros: Zero's in well, works quite well in all sorts of brightness levels
Cons: A bit hard to get the hang of it at first, but good once you do...
Would recommend: Yes

Good Value and Fun

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, VA Written on February 26, 2011
After getting familiar with the sight and finding the range time to dial it in, I am very satisfied with the consistant accruacy I'm getting. Out shoots iron sight on same gun which was my hope.Came with spare battery, lens cloth and small screw driver to fit the elevation and windage adjustment screws.
Pros: Value for price...

ncstar tactical green dot dissapointment

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, VA Written on January 31, 2011
Where to start describing the dissapointment after waiting for it to come in the mail. The dot is not really a nice crisp dot. Cannot really be accurately zeroed in except by luck because tightening down the Locking Set Screws moves the Reticle Plate and zero is lost. Takes many attempts to get the dot close to zero and frustration sets in. Looks cool on my Ruger but I'm going to buy another sight that holds adjustment. Automatic brightness works well but thereis no on-off switch. Instructions say putting on the protective cover (covering the light sensor), will turn sight off. It will not work in total darkness.
Pros: well uh
Cons: yes,...
Would recommend: No
