Maintains its accuracy even after hundreds of rounds have been fired. Included battery lasts for months. Dot is clear and easy to see at all settings. Reticle is easy to adjust. Easy to mount to most rifles.
Sight may loosen up after several firings, particularly with high-powered rifles. Red dot is blurry for some users, especially at high settings.
Bright reticle at night that makes dot easy to see. Choice of red or green dot color. Responsive customer service. Sturdy housing. Easy to set up and zero.
Doesn’t fit all rifles. Set screws each use different sizes of Allen wrench, a hassle to switch up when adjusting sights. Can drain battery quickly.
Windage and elevation adjustment dials make a reassuring click with each turn. Great optics and accurate sighting. Aim holds true even after hundreds of rounds fired.
Big jump in brightness between settings 3 and 4, which can be jarring. Dot can disappear after a few shots. Battery cover may fly off when used with higher powered rifles.
Sight remains zeroed through hundreds of rounds. Works well for daylight use, with clear and bright dot even in sunlight.
Setup can be frustrating as the sight is zeroed in. Mounting screws can “walk out” after many uses due to vibration, misaligning sight. Some pistols (particularly Glocks) make sight adjustments difficult due to size and form factor.
Mounts securely and sights in accurately, and maintains its zero well. Can easily sight to 100+ yds. Has a warranty. Very clear optics, and red dot is crisp and easy to see at all brightness settings.
Some dot sights display starbursts, making them difficult to use. Reports of glare in the sight when set to brightest setting. Lens covers are a bit flimsy.
