I was in a steel shoot match at my local range and was using an open BSA sight on my pistol, but was having a lot of difficulty acquiring and holding the Reticle in bright light, even at it's brightest level. To solve that problem I was in the market for an inexpensive tube type red dot sight and came across this one at Overstock. I did some research on this model and it generally had good reviews so I figured what the heck. I mounted it on my Neos and took it to the range to zero the sights and I found it very easy to use. With the help of a laser bore sighter I had it zeroed right away and it seems to stay zeroed, at least after a few hundred rounds. The only problem I had, was one of the screws that keep it on the rail kept coming loose from vibrations, but a little loctite solved the problem. I used it this weekend in another outdoor steel shoot. Same bright sun, but the combination of the tube and an eleven setting brightness helped with quick acquisition and keeping the dot visible. A good buy for the money, at least so far.
Put this on a Ruger Mark II. Perfect size for a target pistol, looks great. Nice bright and clear reticules, I love the reticule with the crosshairs with the little diamond in the middle. Zeroed in at 50 yards and is spot on. This is my first red dot and I'm quite impressed.
I mounted this shotdot scope to my remington 870 12 gauge. roughly 100 rounds through the gun later, it still puts a red dot in the center of the patern, and is deadly accurate up to 80 yards. havent tested the scope with slugs yet, but it definatley handles the recoil of a 12 ga.
Came with all the needed mounting hardware. Mounted in a few minutes. Worked well right out of the package no issues noted. Did not add a lot of weight to the pistol. The scope zeroed quickly and remained set after 600+ rounds. I was able to shoot very well at the next plate shooting match. Placed 3rd out of 10 shooters. Great product for the money. Nice features are the 11 step brightness control and Four reticle options in one scope.
