Blazing Target Acquisition. Peak Accuracy.
There's nothing like a red dot for fast target acquisition and accuracy in dim conditions, and no one makes red dots like Bushnell. The TRS-25 1x25 red dot is engineered with Amber-Bright optics to help you quickly distinguish between a brown tree and a brown critter. Thanks to the scope's multicoated optics, hunters will have no problem seeing their target in low-light conditions. Other features include a 100-percent waterproof/fogproof/shockproof construction, a dry-nitrogen-filled housing, and a CR2032 battery.
About the Sight:
This sight can be easily used with both eyes open (eye relief is unlimited), increasing the shooter's awareness of the surrounding environment and providing faster target acquisition. There is no need for centering, due to the parallax free design in which the dot follows the movement of the user’s eye while remaining fixed on the target. The TRS-25 delivers full size performance in a sight with reduced size and low power consumption.Mounting the Sight:
The TRS-25 sight mounts easily on any Weaver style or Picatinny rail. An Allen style cross screw is used to secure the sight to the rail, and the clamping system provides adequate strength to keep it securely mounted. Once resistance is felt when tightening the screw it should be rotated no more than ¼ additional turn (over-tightening the screw may strip the threads).
About Red Dot Lens Positioning:
All red dot sights have an objective lens at the front of the unit that is spherical in shape. However, unlike a conventional riflescope, the objective lens in a red dot sight is positioned off axis and appears to be tilted when looking at the sight. This angle of the front lens allows the light generated by the battery powered LED light source inside the unit to be reflected back into the sight. The reflected light becomes the “dot” or aiming reference that the user sees when a red dot sight is switched on. This engineered “bending” of light is what makes today’s red-dot sights so popular and easy to use. Adhesive is used on the inside of the sight to secure the LED to the inside of the tube. By design, the led package intrudes slightly on the field of view.
About the Red Dot Reticle:
The TRS-25 utilizes a crisp, sharp red dot reticle. A control knob is used to adjust the red dot setting. A certain amount of resistance is designed into the control knob to ensure that the sight is not inadvertently turned on. The red dot may appear blurry if the dot intensity is set too high for the ambient light conditions. This is most likely to occur indoors with artificial, fluorescent lighting. The illumination control knob should only be set at the highest settings for use in bright ambient light conditions; for example, outdoors on a sunny day. An illumination setting that is too high for ambient light conditions typically results in a dot that appears distorted and non-concentric. For best results, increase the red dot setting until the scope gives the user an aiming reference that is perceptible but not glaring.

The only thing I don't like is the bikini lens covers. A strap popped after just 3 days. I'm sure Bushnell will send me a replacement but...
This thing is so "inexpensive" that I decided to experiment with flip-up (flip-down) lens covers. I found a set the right diameter and cut them down to fit. Because the eyepiece lens lip is only 1/16 inch, I had to epoxy it on. Let me know if you want details of the procedure. I'll try to add a picture.
That being said, for the price, this is an excellent sight. The construction is solid, it attached to the flat top rail of my AR15 easily and securely. The rubber lens covers, attached to each other by a small rubber cord, are sufficient for protecting the lenses from most objects and debris while remaining in place.
The red dot itself has 11 settings, from 0 (off) to 11 (brightest). I agree with the other reviewers who have stated the highest setting is probably more than you will ever need. It is excessively bright for most environments, and you will rarely, if ever, use the highest settings.
In a location with good lighting, I find #5 or #6 to be great for providing an easy-to-see dot, without becoming blurry or making it too difficult to identify what you are actually sighting.
Battery life is very good for the single button battery the sight uses, just remember to turn it off (set it to 0) when you are done with it for the day.
Knobs for zeroing and changing brightness settings are solid and provide decent feedback to let you know you are indeed adjusting them. They do not feel cheap or flimsy, but are not overly difficult to turn, which is important especially if you generally wear gloves when shooting.
The sight holds its zero very well, I have little concern that this will ever become an issue, it feels that solid.Read more ›
After doing quite a bit of research I decided to get the Bushnell brand because of brand familiarity. I've used Bushnell optics for many years and found them to be fairly good. Decent optical quality without breaking my bank. I've only had to re-zero the one that I use twice, both times was after a removal and remount. The recoil of a 5.56mm Nato round doesn't have enough to disturb this unit and I have never noticed a shift in impact once the optic was mounted and zeroed. It has no noticeable paralax and can be reliably aimed from any angle through the optic. As long as you can see the dot, you can aim the rifle.
The only issue I had with mine was that the dot wasn't very crisp or round. It was oblong and a little fuzzy. I think if all of these units have the same issue it would make them unusable if paired with a 3x magnifier.
It is a nice size for staying out of the way. Too large of an optic can remove too much peripheral view, not good for situational awareness. This one though has enough viewing window to aim well but without so much material hanging off to prevent seeing something off to the side.Read more ›
When I got a new 20-gauge shotgun to take my daughter turkey hunting, I was going to pull an Aimpoint T1 Micro off another rifle so I could put it temporarily on the shotgun. Unfortunately, one of the hex head screws that was holding the sight onto a high mount got stripped out and I didn't want to do anything rash that might mess up such a nice optic. That put me unexpectedly into the market for a new red dot.
Spending hundreds of dollars on a new Aimpoint for a 13-year-old's shotgun seemed excessive and I couldn't bring myself to do it - so I bought this Bushnell red dot based on other reviews that I found. The results have been better than I expected.
There are several negative reviews for the Bushnell sight, and I have to admit that they make valid points:
1) The battery life on the Bushnell isn't even close to the Aimpoint and I had to keep remembering to turn it off when not in use; but it is still good enough for what I needed - and it's also better than the EOTech sights.
2) I did notice the orange haze along the top of the screen.
3) The brightness/power knob is hard to turn - my daughter can't do it. However, it does seem to be loosening up a bit and I'm hoping it gets to a point where she can turn it herself.
4) The windage and elevation controls feel cheap and the 'clicks' aren't very positive.
5) The finish isn't even comparable to the Aimpoint sights.Read more ›
