Excellent, affordable Red Dot for AR15
on April 25, 2010
In line with reviews from numerous AR owners, this affordable Red Dot is worth considering. The picatinny mount provided, fits like a glove on my AR15 LMT Defender 2000 and allows for BUIS use for desireable co-witness application. (Note: reversed the scope on the mount to achieve the preceding)
The red dot is fine and bright in extreme sunlight and the unit has taken the jarring and recoil of over 000's of rounds with no ill-effects. The protective lens caps are sturdy and conviniently flip open for immediate use. Although built in China, the housing, mount and over-all finish quality are well deserved of using the "Walther" trademark.
To get groupings of .25" at 100 mtrs (using my reloads of .55 gr Hornady V-max projectiles at approx. 3400 fps) is a regular event with this scope. In addition, target re-acquisition is much faster. This is certainly not an ACOG, but for the price and for majority of civilian users, its value is hard to beat.
On an added note, after using it the first time, the dot became distorted. Complained to the Amazon seller who offered an immediate replacement. They did suggest to try replacing the battery prior to return shipping, and in doing so, the unit has been working well since.
