This product should come with the return mailing label included in the box. For the price, I knew I couldn't expect much but when the battery outlasts the product it's a bit ridiculous. And I only had it mounted on a .22 Ruger Mark III. The bottom line - purchase with extreme caution and keep your original packaging for the inevitable return to Amazon.
Details of my experience with the Centerpoint: Out of the box the product has the appearance and feel of reasonably good construction. It felt solid and was working normally. I mounted it on my pistol and took to the range to zero in. That's when the trouble began. After several shots I had it zeroed in. The next 12 shots were dead on. After that, the green dot shifted to the far right. I could see that the dot had shifted and that I would be nowhere near the target using the dot as my guide. In fact, taking a shot with the green dot on target put the bullet 8 inches to the left. The problem - adjusting the dot was no longer possible. The left/right adjustment knob no longer worked. Turned as far as it could go in either direction with no effect on the dot position. At this point the product was packed up for return and a refund.
