The NC Star 1x42 Red Dot Scope is a great CQB red dot sight for your rifle/SMG. The lens diameter is 42mm for a wide field of view allowing the shooter to use the peripheral vision to see possible dangers while shooting. The lens covers are especially helpful for airsoft use because they are clear and they act as a protective layer of plastic for the lens.

For: NC Star 1x42 Red Dot Sight
bought this red dot scope for my MTC 2 and when first used it worked perfectly the blood red lens is pretty neat though i haven't really played enough to know how obvious is during the day i know the laser is bright even on the 1st setting and a very fine dot that isnt blotched as seen in some other red dot scopes.
- good enough size to provide a good view for peripherals
- bright red dot even during the day
- battery lasts very long even though my genius self would sometimes forget to turn it off for days at a time
- locks very securely onto the rails.
- makes prettty much any weapon this gets mounted on look bad ass
- lens is kinda warped so when i move around looking through the scope the red dot kind of warps because of the lens but nothing major since looking straight through

I bought this as my first "scope/sight" for my RPK. I have used it for over a year and it has performed perfectly. I haven't had to change the battery even once and the red dot is really clear. Its easy to put on and take off my RPK. Adjustment of the red dot itself isn't as easy but who's going to move it around in the middle of a game? The flip up lens protectors work really well except for the fact that they can sometimes break off merely from a bunch of use. Overall, an amazing sight for any gun or any player. Well worth the money.
Many different brightness settings

Easy to apply to any gun with rails
Strong, sturdy material
Years of use on a single battery

Highest brightness setting is sometimes difficult to see in direct sun
A bit heavy
Very popular so it's often out of stock

I was reading some reviews and I think I should do this red dot some justice.
This thing is amazing. Excellent for CQB, not to big, not to small, full metal with durable glass lenses, and the adjustment screws are solid and will not get bumped off.
Some people say that this will not lock on to a rail well. I say they're wrong. I have lost one of the screws and bolts and with that just the one I have left, I can lift an 8 pound gun by the sight, This is not sight will not be a loose mount, Assuming you use a proper M4 RIS.
I would give it a 4.5* if I could. But the pro's heavily out weigh the cons, so 5*
Durable Glass lenses
Locking adjustment screws
Great for CQB (Not bright enough for out doors)
Excellent windage and elevation adjustment
two metal screws, thumb screws (bolts) and metal mounting hardware
Dirt cheap for a red dot.
Not bright enough during the day
The protective lens covers don't actually stay down. So they're annoying and don't serve their purpose.
the front lens if a deep blood red. Doesn't help when you're hiding.
