The NC STAR Compact Red Dot is the first Optical accessory that I have personally purchased from Airsoft GI and from opening the package I was not disappointed. My first impressions were the weight. As others have described, the unit is fairly heavy for a sight however; I really see this as a plus. The unit itself is very sturdy.
Sturdiness aside, I was surprised by the versatility. The scope has two has two options (red dot and green dot) and each has 3 brightness settings but the functionality does not stop there. The rear of the laser is adjustable up and down for height or distance adjustment and, more to my surprise, it may also be adjusted left and right for wind adjustment. Every feature of this sight lends to the shooter's accuracy.
The only issue that I did have lies with the Weaver Mount. I would not say that the Weaver Mount is hopelessly unstable, however; it does take a good deal of adjustment, loosening and tightening, to get it to remain centered. After tinkering with the Weaver Mount for some time, I got the sight stable and haven't had any further problems. This is a solid sight and a great starter sight for CQB.
