Mines been fantastic. You may have gotten a bad one. Or didn't dial it in right.

In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

there is a reason the good red dots cost twice as much as the entry level ones , Holosun and Primary have entry level models, but BSA, Ncstar, sight mark etc are below the scale and don't even compare. I have several Primary Arms red dots and they have held up to a lot of abuse...

I'm commando right now while on the keyboard, but that doesn't mean what you think it means honey, I ain't got no panties on [smilie=011.gif]

If you want a quality optic, you got to pony up for it...there's a reason budget scopes are inexpensive...

I put an Eotech 553 on my LMT ar15 about 7 years ago, the only time I had to adjust it was from swapping barrels and adding a supressor....

yeah man idk....

talk to me about the advantages...im good with irons to 125 yds...on a 6inch plate. the little 1 moa dots were good but even at that distance the plate was almost gone.....

it doesn't magnify..and likely I wont shoot below 75 yds....so...is it something I need cuz I can get a nib eotech 512 for 300 the guy told me
