This is a great optic. It's a copy of the Aimpoint CompM4, which is the new US Army M68 CCO. I have been using a G&P Aimpoint CompM2 replica, which is great, but this sight is a lot better. The integrated mount is perfect. It is designed to work best with flat-top M4/M16's. The dot sits above the front sight of my M4, but is still low enough to co-witness with my flip-up rear sight. The spacer under the sight can be removed like the real thing, allowing the sight to sit lower on the rails which is perfect for G36's or AK's that have low iron sights. The 5 levels of brightness work well for all environments. Levels 1-3 are perfect for indoors, level 4 will work outside most of the time, and 5 is perfectly visible in the brightest Florida afternoons.
-Rock solid construction
-Flip up lens covers are very solid and snap up with ease
-Brightness adjustments are perfect for all environments
-Brightness-adjustment knob is solid and clicks clearly into place
-Integrated mount works well with a wide variety of weapons
-No need to fumble around with separate mounts like the older Aimpoints
-Uses 3 AG13 button cell batteries. Would it have been that hard to make it run on a single AA battery like the real thing?
Well, the con isnt really a con, I'm just picky. Seriously, if you want a good functional red dot that looks like the real thing, get this.
