Save Your $ for something Better

by kilroy, from United States, VA Written on November 23, 2014
Purchased last winter for a 12g. Did not get a chance to test it until this season, which means its too late to return. The thing is Horrible. Line it up, pull the trigger, the Dot is pointing elsewhere. The larger the shell, the farther the Dot moves. Figured out immediately to take the lens protectors off otherwise they will remove themselves. Found it a pain to sight the Dot, also. You get what you pay for I guess. May be of use on a weapon with much less recoil, maybe even a hand gun. Definitely of no use on a 12g w/ 2 3/4" shot and for goodness sakes not 3" shot - and neither loads used were magnum loads...I had sense enough to remove this thing before using magnum. If the Dot wouldn't jump on you, it would be great to use once you have it dialed in....
Pros:
  • None
Cons:
  • DOESN'T HOLD ZERO
  • doesn't hold up to a shotgun
Would recommend: No

Good Scope for Price Point

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, PA Written on February 28, 2013
This is a very good product for the price. The dot is quite bright, it is easy to set up, windage and elevation are easy to adjust. I cannot speak about durability because it wasn't used long enough, but all seems quite solid. I needed a smaller and lighter scope for my 22 target pistol which had a smaller dot for targets. Paid 4x as much. If I were a hunter this Tru Glo woold be just fine.
Pros: Easy to SetUp; Good adjustability Dot Brightness
Cons: Big and heavy...

It works.

Works fine. Usefulness is dependent on the application. I have it on a pellet gun and it works ok.
Pros: For the money , it works fine.

Expected More from Tru Glo

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on November 18, 2010
Purchased this optic for my daughter's 20ga, 1187 youth gun. I hope I just ran in to a poor sight, but it continuously shot high at 50 yds, regardless of adjustment. Concluded that the dot was floating and I am returning this sight in hopes that I just ran across a lame duck...
Pros: Simple to Use
Cons: Extremely difficult time zeroing this Optic...
Would recommend: No

Broken

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on February 11, 2010
I put this on my 12g Mossberg 500 to use for 2.75" slugs. The glass in the scope broke after shooting 10 shots while sight it in. Also the dot ended up way to the right. Bottom line...it can't stand up to heavy rounds.
Pros: Cool Toy for Light Recoil Guns
Cons: Broke Trying to Sight It...
Would recommend: No

Not Bad

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on February 28, 2009
I bought the 2X version of this guy this year. Easy to put on. I got it for my shotgun. There is a learning curve.

You have to train yourself to keep the reticle in the middle of the lens so minimize refraction. I've measured it and this scope will be about 4 inches off at 60 yards if you do not center the reticle. (it's the trade off for getting a cheaper red dot)

When you consider the this to be accurate to 1-2 inches at 60 yards (I believe this is all you need for deer hunting)

I live in upstate NY, it's important to have something that functions in temperatures in the teens. This will turn on in those temperatures but it sure takes it's sweet time and I don't think I would trust it. It might be the choice of battery? In most cases you should be OK.
Pros: Solid frame, lens refraction isn't too bad
Cons: It lacks reliability in very cold weather...
Would recommend: Yes
