For: AMP Compact Combat Red Dot Sight (QD Riser Mount)Product Information:
I bought this sight about a month ago ever since I found out the hard way that crappy element T-1 clones (yes the one with AIMPOINT trades) are really just useless junk. I started looking for something better. I am an avid of LevelCapGaming on YouTube, and he picked up this red dot awhile back and he had nothing but glowing reviews for it. I wasn't sure how it would take the recoil of my WE GBBRS, but I decided to give it a shot. I am IMPRESSED, and I would buy more than 1 except the QD mount means you don't have to.
Brightness settings from nearly invisible at night to very bright at high noon on a sunny day.
QD mount works quite nicely (means you only need 1 even if you have multiple guns).
The ruby lens looks quite, I've been told these can occasionally come with emerald lenses but I've only ever seen them with ruby. I'm sure it would look quite nice with emerald as well.
It comes with a "killflash" which is a honeycombed grid that goes over the front of the sight to stop it reflecting light back at people downrange. This would not be particularly useful on its own, but it also serves the purpose of making it very hard for other people to see your sight at night (combine that with a very low brightness on minumum), you will not have anyone seeing a glowing red dot and getting tipped off to your position. Most important, it's also BB proof. Yes, no more getting your super expensive red dot shot out. Well it might not withstand a 500fps at point blank, it is more than capable of deflecting BBs from a field legal AEG at about 40 feet as I found out last time I played.
Lastly, the riser both looks stylish and it will clear your forward triangle sight if you have one, so you don't have to change anything, just drop this right on. I'd assume it works decently with paintball masks and other not low profile eye pro, but it works very well with just ballistic goggles. It also is removable from the actual sight itself.
So far I havnt discovered any issues with the sight, the killflash really is an excellent touch. The QD mount can be a bit wobbly unless you crank the screw down, which makes it hard to get off. But apart from that and the price (which is ONE HUNDRED AND TEN PERCENT worth it) that's all I can think of.
