Has held zero for 1000 rounds and survived rain and sub freezing temps. Great product for the price range, couldn't be more pleased.

I'm sending mine back.
It's not a bad looking sight with nice & clear optics. But If mine didn't have crooked chevron & t-dot reticles,it would have gotten higher marks and I would have kept it. I won't even try to contact Lucid cust service-it's going back to Amazon.
The high price for a 2-5x magnifier ($189) and a QD lever upgrade kit ($144.59) also turned me off.

I have received multiple Gen III's with problems. Please note that these are made in CHINA and trust me, the quality (or lack thereof) really shows. The first Gen III I received was broken right out of the box. The reticule selector was frozen and would not turn no matter how much force was applied. I shipped it back and received a new one.

Today at the range, this second one just stopped working. I'm unable to get the red dot to turn back on (yes, I tried to change the batteries). This optic has only been to the range TWICE and is already broken. The first one didn't even make it to the range. Do yourself a favor and buy a quality optic, which this is definitely not!

Maybe the older ones had better quality control/materials but I'm telling you, these new ones are absolute garbage.

I did a lot of research and thought I had found a quality red dot for a great value. Reticles are awesome, then came the problems... Worked properly the first time at the range (150 rounds of 223 thru my AR15). The second time, every other round fired would either turn the red dot on or off. Sent it in for warranty. Didn't hear from them for almost two months, made multiple emails and call w/ no answer. finally a new one arrived. took it to the range and it worked. Didn't get a second time to take it to the range b/c I happened to check the scope before I went and it wouldn't turn on. Checked the battery and found the battery cap was pretty stuck. had to get a wrench to open it. Discovered a corroded battery. This was a new battery by Duracel. A brand name. removed the corrosion and the scope no longer works at all. Googled the issue and first item that pops up is lucid's website saying they will not warranty battery corrosion issues. I truly think something in this design is causing these batteries to deteriorate quickly. Maybe heat. I don't know. But I do know I'm pissed. Now I must save for a real scope. Trijicon most likely. Super pissed. Do not buy. Wasting your money and time.

Reticle was canted, fit and finish disappointing, overall quality a big let down. I do not recommend this optic. For the same price range I much prefer the sig tac prismatic scope.

I bought this item and it didn't last for two months when it didn't want to turn on again. I sent it to Lucid to be repair or replace and the people from Lucid sent me an email saying there were not granting the warranty for battery corrosion inside battery compartment which is not true. Don't buy this item the warranty is not good.

From a guy who has three ACOG's, Leupold HAMR, Aimpoint, four EOTech's, Leupold Prismatic, C-More, Docter, Insight, Meprolight and a Browe this is not a bad optic for the money. I was actually impressed. I tested it out on a UTS-15 shotgun and it never lost zero even after 500 rounds. It has 4 reticles and you can even change them without losing zero. The rubber coating is nice and when you pick it up it feels like a quality optic. You can see the LED emitter when looking through it on the left side but it will only bug you for the first few shots. The auto feature works good but I always kept it on manual. I like to control the brightness. All in all for less than $200 it's a very good sight.

This is one awesome red dot sight. I have not been to the range with it yet, but I am very impressed with it out of the box.

It looks and feels like good build quality. The rubberized exterior is a nice touch.

My AR has a flip-up rear sight and a standard A2 front sight post and the Lucid sight sits at the perfect height to co-witness the red dot and the iron sights (the iron sights line up in the bottom third of the Lucid sight window).

I like that it uses a single AAA battery because they're cheap and easy to find.

It has plenty of adjustable brightness levels and is easy to see in sunlight.

The auto-sensing brightness feature works like a charm. I took it into a dark room and then repeatedly flipped the ceiling fan lights on and off. The reticle brightened and darkened without missing a beat. It actually seemed like I was adjusting the reticle brightness directly with the wall switch.

I'm very happy with this purchase. Can't wait to go shoot with it.

Have had this since February, works great. Holds zero perfectly thus far. Have only had one issue and that was that it shut off on it's own and I had to remove the battery and reinstall. I love that it uses common everyday batteries. Only down side would be the small eye piece lens. It gives you a much smaller field of view then an eotech, but for the price it can't be beat and that's when I paid 270 in Feb. Due to the small lens the magnifier I purchased put the red for too far forward on my gun to be practical with the magnifier flipped down.

Lucid makes a great red dot sight. The auto brightness and build quality are flawless. This is the best red dot I have found for the money. I am extremely impressed with this product.
