Nice little bit of protection for my red dot, saved me once already. Uses a little locking pin to hold the shield up, once you pop it up it will stay up on its own all right. It does claim to have a limited lifetime warranty in the US and Canada, so if getting shot from a BB falls under the "Damage from normal use" they might send you new shields. Just mount this the right way, I wanted to laugh at a buddy who mounted it backwards but the thought of the shield slapping back against the optic made me cringe. Should look the same as in the picture with the mount screw on the left as you look down the sights.
- Easy to use
- Easy to mount
- Does its job
- Mount is only an inch long, saves on rail space.
- Two shield options
- Lots of people have said the shields break, on anything
- My mount screw was covered in a fine layer of rust when I got it :(
- Scratches easily
